The FET Open project Q-SORT is working on developing a new generation of electron microscopes: so-called “Quantum Sorters”, able to probe delicate specimens with extremely low sample damage. The potential benefits of such tools include, but are not limited to, the ability to determine protein structures that could lead to new drug designs for healthcare and next-generation biomedicine. On 15 September 2019, during the MCM 2019 – 14th Multinational Congress on Microscopy in Belgrade, Serbia, the Q-SORT Principal Investigator, Vincenzo Grillo (Istituto di Nanoscienze, Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche, Italy), delivered a plenary lecture with the title: “Quantum Sorting: a new paradigm of quantum measurement in electron microscopy”. The lecture summarized the most recent developments in the field.
