first_imgStay on target Game of Thrones fanatics are known for their crafty art tributes, however, a microbiologist decided to take her “culture” masterpiece to the next level by creating beautiful Westerosi house sigils with agar jelly and bacteria.Bria O’Brien, a Virginia-based lab manager, uploaded a picture of her creative Game of Thrones artwork to Reddit’s r/microbiology subreddit on May 14, reported. O’Brien, who works at a company that focuses on consumer goods and food testing, grew six house sigils that represented the Starks, the Targaryens, the Lannisters, the Tyrells, the Greyjoys, and the Tullys in bacteria cultures.AdChoices广告According to O’Brien, she makes her own media (the stuff that makes bacteria happy) in-house and performs quality checks to make sure the media doesn’t grow what it shouldn’t. Monitoring media usually involves placing agar, a jelly-like material that’s used to culture bacteria in a petri dish and then making the solution streak with a zigzag bacteria line. This isn’t O’Brien’s first foray into petri dish art either: She’s previously drawn the Stranger Things’ mind flayer and holiday plates.After the initial step above, the bacteria starts to grow and the “drawings” start to show in the agar. In the comments section, O’Brien said she used the following organisms and media for each Westerosi drawing: Starks [Staph aureus on Baird Parker Agar (BPA)[, Targaryens [E. coli on Levine Eosin Methylene Blue Agar (LEMB)], Lannister [Salmonella typhimuriumon Brilliant Green agar],  Tyrell [Candida albicans on Dichloran Rose Bengal Agar (DRBC)], Greyjoy [Salmonella typhimurium on Hektoen Enteric Agar (HE)],  and Tully [Listeria monocytogenes on ALOA].“To draw them I use an inoculating needle, and a drop of sterile water in a petri dish mixed with a colony of the bacteria,” O’Brien explained. “For specific drawings I’ll look at a picture to make sure I capture it accurately.”O’Brien, who will enter her artwork to the American Society for Microbiology’s annual art contest, said she might draw more Game of Thrones designs after the series finale, and she’s rooting for the Starks.“Depending on the outcome of [Game of Thrones], I may draw some agar plates specifically detailing the end. My favorite house is house Stark,” O’Brien added. “It has the majority of the morally good characters in the show that I’d like to see make it out alive.”More on Look: ‘Game of Thrones’ Series Finale Photos‘Game of Thrones’ Fans Urge HBO to Re-Do Season 8 in New PetitionGeorge R.R.

New technique doubles resolution of nearfield terahertz imaging

first_img © 2016 Tech Xplore Explore further Techniques involving the use of terahertz radiation have been evolving in recent years, leading to devices able to see through materials to take pictures of what lies beneath. Because T-rays are less energetic than X-ray or gamma rays, they are less likely to cause damage. That has made them ideal for use in detecting hidden images behind paintings and discovering defects in panels used on space craft. But there have been two problems with using T-rays more widely, the first is that it costs a lot, and the second is that it cannot be used in applications smaller than its wavelength, which has held back its resolution abilities. In this new effort, the researchers have not found a solution for the first problem but have dramatically improved the second.To improve the resolution, the team illuminated an object hidden behind a silicon wafer with two different sources, one of them was a standard terahertz beam, and the other was light that sent pulses of different dark and light patterns onto the object under study. The patterns that were projected onto the wafer caused part of it to become conductive, which meant the T-rays could not pass through them. Thus the T-rays were able to easily pass through the wafer but were then scattered as they struck the object hidden on the other side. Using a pixel detector allowed for recording the T-rays that made their way through, allowing for image creation.Using the technique, the researchers report that they were able to detect cracks in a circuit board affixed to the opposite side of a wafer, at approximately double the resolution of existing terahertz imaging techniques. They believe their technique could prove useful in the microelectronics industry, and perhaps in medicine, as it might be used to detect very tiny tumors. This document is subject to copyright.

More information: R. I. Stantchev et al. Noninvasive, near-field terahertz imaging of hidden objects using a single-pixel detector, Science Advances (2016). DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.1600190AbstractTerahertz (THz) imaging can see through otherwise opaque materials. However, because of the long wavelengths of THz radiation (λ = 400 μm at 0.75 THz), far-field THz imaging techniques suffer from low resolution compared to visible wavelengths. We demonstrate noninvasive, near-field THz imaging with subwavelength resolution. We project a time-varying, intense (>100 μJ/cm2) optical pattern onto a silicon wafer, which spatially modulates the transmission of synchronous pulse of THz radiation. An unknown object is placed on the hidden side of the silicon, and the far-field THz transmission corresponding to each mask is recorded by a single-element detector. Knowledge of the patterns and of the corresponding detector signal are combined to give an image of the object. Using this technique, we image a printed circuit board on the underside of a 115-μm-thick silicon wafer with ~100-μm (λ/4) resolution. With subwavelength resolution and the inherent sensitivity to local conductivity, it is possible to detect fissures in the circuitry wiring of a few micrometers in size. THz imaging systems of this type will have other uses too, where noninvasive measurement or imaging of concealed structures is necessary, such as in semiconductor manufacturing or in ex vivo bioimaging. (—A team of researchers with members from the University of Exeter, the University of Glasgow and QinetiQ, all in the U.K. has found a way to effectively double the resolution offered by near-field terahertz imaging. In their paper published in the journal Science Advances, the team describes how the technique works and some of the applications that might be bettered through its use.center_img A terahertz image taken with the newly developed, non-invasive sub-wavelength terahertz imaging setup. The image size is 2x2mm and the structure was hidden behind a silicon wafer.

first_img Google Analytics settings Having launched two previous editions of its camera-enabled shades, Snapchat parent company Snap has unveiled the Snapchat Spectacles 3 for recording social media moments on the go – and this time they can capture photos and videos in 3D.That ability to snap in three dimensions is made possible by the addition of an extra camera. The Snapchat Spectacles 3 glasses now come with two high definition cameras, one on each side of the frame. As before, photos and videos get wirelessly synced back to your phone, where they can be edited and posted to Snapchat.Snap is also pushing the potential for augmented reality enhancements with the latest version of its wearable, AR elements like objects or cartoon characters can be dropped into scenes, as with the main Snapchat app itself.As on the earlier Spectacles, the cameras light up when recording as a privacy feature: you won’t be able to record someone standing in front of you without them knowing about it. The frame, meanwhile, has been upgraded to high-strength stainless steel, and carbon (black) and mineral (a sandy shade) are the color choices., 2016 You get a charging cable and a charging case with the Snapchat Spectacles 3Snap Powered by, 2016 Spectacles at first did not succeed, but Snap will try, try again, report says, 2017 A charging case is included as before, which Snap says can hold up to four Spectacles charges to keep your snapping going while you’re away from a power socket. Snap hasn’t said how long the new Spectacles themselves last between charges. There’s 4 GB of storage on board, capable of holding around 100 videos or 1,200 photos.While the Snapchat Spectacles have never threatened to take off in terms of sales (see if you can remember ever having seen someone wearing them), they have nevertheless been one of the best devices of this type available. If you want glasses that can record video and take photos – they’re certainly better looking and more affordable than Google Glass.The price might put a lot of Snapchatters off this time around – version 2 of the Spectacles (which are still on sale) retail for US$150, while version 3 is selling for a hefty $380. That’s a lot of cash to part with for a social media accessory, and unlike the previous edition, the new Spectacles aren’t waterproof.Pre-orders for the Snapchat Spectacles 3 are open now and Snap says that shipping starts “this Fall” in the Northern Hemisphere, though we don’t have an exact date.Product page: Snapchat Spectacles 3 Snapchat upgrades ‘Spectacles’ after first-generation flop We recommend Snapchat introduces video-catching sunglasses Snapchat’s playful shot at sunglasses, 2018 Snapchat’s ‘Spectacles’ go on sale in Europe, 2018 Unconventional Snap Spectacles make discrete video capture a cinch I consent to the use of Google Analytics and related cookies across the TrendMD network (widget, website, blog).
