Like magic, a 'movie' from a single snapshot brings precision down to the nanoscale
Getting a better handle on phenomena ranging from biological interactions to the behaviours of materials in the quantum regime relies on extremely high precision measurements in both time and space. This is even more true with non-repetitive events, for which capturing multiple frames and averaging is not possible. The EU-funded TIMP project is developing advanced microscopy to bring nanometre resolution to ultrafast, non-repetitive and transient phenomena. The technology harnesses an innovative time-resolved imaging technique enabling the algorithmic recovery of multiple frames from a single camera snapshot, producing "movies" of the imaged object with nanoscale precision.
