Materials & Technology reSOLUTION No. 5
From Surgical Instruments, Steel Production to Nanotechnology
Our eyes are our most important sensory organ. Although medical technology is not yet able to replace the human eye, the possibilities of eye surgery are fascinating. Two articles in this issue of reSOLUTION describe the precision instruments and high-tech lenses – produced and inspected with the aid of stereomicroscopes – that help surgeons save our eyesight.
The world of steel deals with rather different dimensions. Yet top precision and microscopic analysis are just as essential in the production process. We interviewed an expert on the subject of elaborate quality control in steel production.
There’s hardly a technology magazine that doesn’t report on nanotechnology. Our feature in this issue is about the contribution made by a high-tech microscope to show young people exciting pictures from the nano world and fire their enthusiasm for this promising branch of industry.
