Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Shine on: Avalanching nanoparticles break barriers to imaging cells in real time

(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) A team of researchers co-led by Berkeley Lab and Columbia University has developed a new material called avalanching nanoparticles that, when used as a microscopic probe, offers a simpler approach to taking high-resolution, real-time snapshots of a cell's inner workings at the nanoscale.
