New lensless imaging technique opens door to nanoscale world

... be applied to a wide variety of samples from thin films to small structures coming from material science, biology or chemistry," Luening said. State-of-the-art light sources such as BESSY and SPEAR3 at SLAC achieve lensless imaging by filtering light so that the only remaining X-rays are "coherent"--that ...
