Smaller than the space between atoms: The technology behind the highest-resolution microscope image

A new detector technology lets us more than double the resolution of our electron microscope, resolving features 0.4 Angstoms apart. With a record resolution well below the shortest bond length, finding a good test object was a challenge. Twisted bilayers of two-dimensional molybdenum sulfide gave us the world's smallest ruler - where the projected distance between atoms could be made arbitrarily small.

Muller Group aids discovery of high-def electron pathways in soil

The Muller group has helped to discover previously unknown electron transfer pathways in Biochar in soil, which may be vital for soil microorganisms. The cross-disciplinary study was led by Tianran Sun and Johannes Lehmann from Cornell's Department of Crop and Soil Sciences. Read more at the Cornell Chronicle!
