Helium microscope gains funding

A new type of microscope called the Quantum Gas Jet-based Helium Atom Microscope (qHAM) is being developed by the University of Liverpool. The process involves taking helium gas, pumping it to high pressure and allowing it to expand through a tiny hole into a vacuum. The helium atoms are back scattered from the sample, giving a higher resolution than optical microscopy. The project gained funding from Innovate UK as part of the UK’s national strategy to commercialize quantum technologies.
