The spatial resolution of chemical images acquired with cluster secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS) is limited not only by the size of the probe utilized to create the images but also by detection sensitivity. As the probe size is reduced to below 1 μm, for example, a low signal in each pixel limits lateral resolution because of counting statistics(More)
In purine-depleted environments, the de novo purine biosynthetic pathway is catalyzed to ultimately produce inosine monophosphate (IMP), a purine invisible using current optical microscopy methodology. These enzymes form a complex, termed the "purinosome," to replenish IMP levels. Before cellular chemical imaging may be applied to monitor the distributions(More)
Strong field ionization (SFI) was applied for the secondary neutral mass spectrometry (SNMS) of patterned rubrene films, mouse brain sections, and Botryococcus braunii algal cell colonies. Molecular ions of rubrene, cholesterol, C31 diene/triene, and three wax monoesters were detected, representing some of the largest organic molecules ever ionized intact(More)
N,N'-Propylene-bis-(N-salicylidene)copper(II) (Cu(Salprn)) explicitly stabilizes apomyoglobin. The optical spectrum of this copper(II) Schiff-base complex of apomyoglobin arises from the electronic excitations of pi *-O-Salprn-->dx2-y2 and N-Salprn-->dx2-y2. Shifts of these transitions with respect to those of the parent complex may be a consequence of(More)
