Future progress in neuroscience hinges on reconstruction of neuronal circuits to the level of individual synapses. Because of the specifics of neuronal architecture, imaging must be done with very high resolution and throughput. While Electron Microscopy (EM) achieves the required resolution in the transverse directions, its depth resolution is a severe(More)
Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) is an invaluable tool for biologists and neuroscientists to study brain structure at the intracellular level. While able to image tissue samples with up to 5 nm isotropic resolution, image acquisition is prohibitively slow and limits the size of processed samples. In this work, we propose a novel approach to speeding up(More)
Small amounts of anion impurities (e.g. Cl), which are incorporated during the synthesis of ceramic powders, can affect the properties and microstructure of the final sintered ceramic. The effect of anion impurities is a little studied and poorly understood phenomenon. In this work a combination of STEM-EDX analysis and atomistic modeling approach was used(More)
