Science is a never-ending search of problems and its solutions. Scientists are always curious towards new inventions and open for new experiments. Imaging life on a nanoscale have now been possible due to the efforts of the Australian scientists who have developed the technique that will give a new idea and details of the transition metal ion, just like the copper does in case of neuro-degenerative diseases.
A “Quantum kangaroo” has been revealed, that indicates the sensitivity of magnitude. Electron spin resonance (ESR) technique is the method of getting the biochemical processes in biological systems. ESR can reveal biochemistry related to metal ions and free radicals. This particular sensing and imaging technology enables students to understand the life in an entire new way with much more sensitivity and clear resolution that was derived from the basic interactions of sample and inspect at the quantum mechanical level.
It is considered very difficult to scale ESR technology up to sub-micron resolution, because the reduction in spatial resolution demands a better sensitivity and that is what has been offered by the quantum probes. The most remarkable benefit of quantum-based sensing is that it does no interference with the sample that is being imaged. This invention will create a new way to understand human biochemistry.
