16th International Conference on

X-Ray Microscopy

August 12 – 16, 2024

Stadshallen, Lund, Sweden

Note: the XRM-emblem was designed by Maik Kahnt (MAX IV), and reproduced by Mattias Åstrand (Biomedical and X-Ray Physics, KTH Stockholm, Sweden) in gold on Si3N4, with nanofabrication methods also used for making Fresnel zone plates. The measurement was performed at the SoftiMAX beamline of MAX IV by Karina Thånell.

Keynote Speaker

MPI for Multi-disciplinary Sciences Göttingen & MPI for Medical Research, Heidelberg | Germany

Stefan Hell

Winner of the 2014 Kavli prize for Nanoscience, and joint Nobel prize winner in Chemistry, 2014, for the development of STED (STimulated Emission Depletion) microscopy, the first light-focusing microscope with a resolution at the nanoscale. Stefan Hell and his team have shattered Abbe’s diffraction-limited resolution barrier, which was long regarded an absolute limit.

Recently, a fresh look at the basic physical principles underlying nanoscopy has spawned more new concepts. In particular, MINFLUX imaging (nanoscopy with MINimal photon FLUXes) has been pioneered in the Hell Labs, obtaining the ultimate (super)resolution: the size of a molecule (~1 nm), which is now used to create unprecedented measurement capabilities for the life sciences and beyond.
