... why van Gogh's Sunflowers shine?

Australian researchers are now using a system normally used for biological samples to examine paint pigments. Using a ZEISS Sigma VP field emission microscope featuring a microtome with a diamond blade, they produce serial sectional images of paint samples.
A three-dimensional image can then be generated, which enables the scientists to map the layers of paint and to better understand the aging process.

... that 2015 is the Year of Light?

As 2015 marks the anniversary of several major events in optics, the UNESCO General Conference has declared it the International Year of Light. Through a range of events, ZEISS is also is bringing the meaning of light closer to the general public.

... that bacteria protect the Colosseum?

Bacteria and other microorganisms protect the Roman amphitheater from environmental influences by producing a natural, organic film called patina. For the project »Invincible«, samples were taken from the outer layer of the patina and placed under a ZEISS microscope ...

... that blue light can be dangerous, yet it's also essential for good health?

Blue light at a wavelength of 460 nanometres can damage the macula, the part of the retina which has the most photoreceptor cells. At wavelengths longer than 460 nanometres, it plays an important role in regulating our melatonin levels, which influence our circadian rhythms and general well-being ...

... that Catherine the Great had a collection of hairpins with moving parts which were manufactured in China from wires just 30 microns thick?

They include the wings of butterflies and birds and the head of a Phoenix. Restorers examine the hairpins using special microscopes from ZEISS to get a clearer idea of how the moving elements work.

... that leading-edge technology is being repaired in the rain forest?

Doctors Without Borders is using 120 ZEISS Primo Start iLED microscopes to diagnose tuberculosis, malaria and sleeping sickness worldwide. In a service framework agreement, ZEISS has agreed to make the repair handbook available for employees working on-site and is supplying replacement parts quickly and at a favorable price.

... that new animal species are being discovered in the Atlantic Ocean?

Off the coast of the Azores, Kirsten and Joachim Jakobsen, a German husband and wife team, dive more than a kilometer below the surface of the Atlantic Ocean in their LULA 1000 submarine. Using a faucet-like mechanism, they take samples from the seawater and analyze them using a ZEISS Primovert routine microscope. But the Jakobsens aren't just interested in new one-celled organisms: they're also discovering new species amongst larger animals like fish and jellyfish.

more

... that researchers are working towards producing a map of the human brain?

To create the detailed images needed for this map, new methods and tools have to be developed. For example, the current ZEISS MultiSEM 505 uses 61 parallel beams to examine samples in the cubic millimeter or centimeter range. Such volumes previously took years to record and were therefore beyond the limits of the technologically feasible.

... that there's a zoo for microorganisms?

In many cities the zoo is a popular destination for both tourists and locals, no matter where you are in the world. But up until now you only found animals in a zoo and plants in a botanical garden. However, an import group of creatures was missing: microorganisms. You can't see microorganisms with the naked eye, which is why you haven't seen them at your local zoo – until now.

... that ZEISS camera lenses are turning 125 years old?

On 21 March 1890, the first batch of camera lenses left production in Jena. The successors of the ZEISS camera lenses initially produced 125 years ago are used by millions of people around the world today.

The Rosetta mission to the Churyumov–Gerasimenko comet is highly successful thanks to the satisfactory landing of the Philae minilab and the measurement data sent to Earth from the mother probe and the lander. The instruments on board Rosetta include two spectrometer systems featuring ZEISS gratings.
