The Campus Laboratory for Advanced Imaging, Microscopy and Spectroscopy (AIMS) is currently in the formation phase towards an interdisciplinary institution of the Göttingen Campus with the aim of pushing the development of novel analytical techniques at the highest level.
As a cross-institutional initiative AIMS brings together researchers from Göttingen Campus and partner institutes:
Increasing the spatial resolution in microscopy was a main driver for method development in Göttingen over the last two decades. While the importance of spatial resolution will continue, future trends in microscopy, imaging and spectroscopy will equally address temporal resolution, quantitative contrast, demanding sample environments, optimum data acquisition and information retrieval. Advancements in high resolution physical techniques will continue to transform the natural sciences and ultimately also deliver enabling technology to a broad range of industrial, engineering, and biomedical applications.
