The Center of Nanoanalysis and Electron Microscopy at the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg recently opened its doors for the inauguration of their new ZEISS Xradia Ultra X-ray microscope (XRM).

After greeting messages from the university’s president Prof. Joachim Hornegger, and Dr. Michael Royeck of the German Science Foundation (DFG), Prof. Phil Withers from the University of Manchester took the audience on a virtual correlative journey across multiple length scales and modalities. Prof. Withers highlighted the importance of high resolution X-ray microscopy as a complementary imaging technique and key element in the correlative analysis suite of microscopy using examples from fields such as bio-inspired materials design or the study of corrosion onset in steel. Prof. Erdmann Spiecker, head of the Institute of Micro- and Nanostructure and the CENEM, then provided a glimpse into the research fields that will benefit from the new ZEISS Xradia Ultra system. In particular, the early results on photonic crystal design in butterfly wings caught the attention of the audience.

    Dear Zeiss,

    Your boys look sloppy in your blog picture. Something to relay... Please express this with upper management. Sloppy isn't a style, it reflects poorly.

      Thank you for sharing your point of view. However, style issues are not our primary concern. This post is about the instrument and the people who use it.
