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 ...
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.
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.
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 ...
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.
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.
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.
Cecilia Bartoli and Rolando Villazón in the country, the supermarket or the launderette: these moments were captured by Hollywood photographer Douglas Kirkland exclusively for the 2015 ZEISS Art Calendar.
