Using technology to map ice algae

Life is thriving in the Arctic beneath ice. At the base of the food web is Ice algae. They are an important food source for life in the arctic sea, and flourish in this extreme environment. Modern technology gives us exciting possibilities to learn more about them and how they have adapted to their environment.

The Kavli Prize to pioneers in Electron Microscopy!

Congratulations to the four researchers who were awarded the Kavli Prize in Nanoscience on Wednesday 27 May 2020!

Harald Rose, Max Haider, Ondrej Krivanek and Knut Urban received the Kavli Prize for realizing sub-Ångstrøm imaging and chemical analysis in transmission electron microscopy (TEM) using aberration correction. Their work makes it possible to “see” atoms.
