Australian researchers built world’s first scanning helium microscope helium microscope (SHeM). An announcement in this regard was made by the scientists belonging to the University of Newcastle in the third week of May 2016.
It would enable scientists to study human, animal and plant samples, as well as pharmaceutical drugs and computer chips in their true state. It is expected to provide new insights into structures at a microscopic level. It will be useful in major industries such as solar energy, defence, explosives and information technology. It will help with the clean-up of toxic or even radioactive spills, without harming the surrounding flora or fauna.
