Helium ion microscope. Researcher operating a helium ion microscope, a new technology capable of improved magnification at the nanometre-scale. This is the ORION helium ion microscope, developed by the Carl Zeiss company. It uses an ALIS gas field ion source to produce a beam of helium ions that can be focused 300 times sharper than an electron beam. A sample of the output is seen on the computer screen. Photographed in 2010, at the Southampton Nanofabrication Centre, at the University of Southampton, UK.
