Cool microscope technology enables high-speed video analysis
The technology behind the CoolMolecular™ cooling microscope is being developed by a team of researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, the University at Buffalo and the University in New Jersey.
The cooling microscope has the potential to revolutionize the way we investigate how materials respond to external environmental stresses.
The microscope can analyze the physical and chemical properties of a material at a high resolution and accurately map the interactions between different materials at a microscopic level.
In particular, the microscope can identify the chemical, optical, or physical properties of an object and its interactions with other materials.
The CoolMulecular™ microscope is a new, high-performance, low-cost, low energy microscope for high-resolution, high throughput microscopy and optical imaging of biomaterials.
CoolMolecule technology is being built on a research platform developed by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science.
The Advanced Thermal Conductivity and Energy Storage Center, part of the DOE Office of Scientific Research, and the National Science Foundation supported the project.
The CoolMilecule microscope is part of a multi-million dollar effort led by the Advanced Thermal Research Program, part.
The program is funded by DOE’s Office in Science and by the National Institutes of Health, under Contract DE-AC04-08734 and NSF Award R01AG037647.
The research is conducted by DOE scientists in the Thermal Dynamics and Energy Systems Laboratory at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
