Dear Santa Claus,
I have been a relatively good boy this year and I would like a shiny new Hitachi TM-100 Tabletop Scanning Electron Microscope. I know what you're going to say, "Dave, you already have a microscope and it can easily fit on a tabletop." Yes, that is true, but I have an old optical microscope and if I had an electron microscope just think of the photos I could take! They would by much cooler than these I took last year.
The TM-100 will be on display (hopefully a hands on display!) at the 2007 WIRED Nextfest.
Scientest at the Lawrence Berkeley National Labs are working on a microscope that will help push forward the next wave of nanotechnology.New microscope could focus nanotech dream
