Nucleus electron configuration: a new type of scanning electron microscope
Posted May 12, 2019 06:11:03By By Tatsuya NoguchiThe scanning electron microscopy technique that has revolutionized our understanding of the properties of organic matter is about to be turned on its head, as researchers from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Germany will demonstrate that it can be used to study a new kind of atom.
A team led by Prof. Tatsuyoshi Noguch, an assistant professor in the Department of Physics, will present their findings in the May 18 edition of the journal Nature Photonics.
Noguch has spent the past few years exploring the nature of atoms and the interactions between atoms in nature, leading to the development of scanning-electron microscopy, or SEM.
The new technology was developed as part of a research project funded by the German Ministry of Science and Higher Education and the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
Nogguch’s group discovered that an atom has a nucleus, which consists of a shell of protons and neutrons that are surrounded by a nucleus.
The shell of electrons, which forms the nucleus, is called the electron shell.
In addition, the electron nucleus contains a ring of protosomes that can be excited by magnetic fields.
The team used a scanning electron laser to probe the electron shells of organic molecules such as sugars, proteins, and nucleic acids.
The laser beam was used to probe these compounds by scanning the electron images of them using a scanning-emission technique called ionization.
The results showed that a chemical molecule called boron is an electron-neutron mixture, or NEM, and that the molecule has a very strong magnetic field.
These results show that the electron-shell arrangement in the molecule does not have an inherent magnetic property.
Instead, the magnetic field generated by the electron beams can interact with the electrons in the electronshell.
“We were able to measure the electron properties of the organic molecules and demonstrate that the interaction between the electron and the magnetic surface is a very important property of the molecules,” Noguches team leader Dr. Daniela Rau said in a press release.
“This discovery gives us new tools for studying organic matter in a way that is more precise and sensitive than ever before,” Nogguch added.
The scientists were able detect the strong magnetic fields generated by magnetic monopoles and to study the magnetic interactions between the electrons and the electrons themselves.
Nogsuch’s team is now working on further research in this area to better understand how the structure of organic materials works, such as how to manipulate these interactions.
“The use of scanning EM can help us understand how different organic molecules react to different kinds of magnetic fields and thus provide us with a better understanding of how these interactions work in the body,” Noguez said.NOGUCH & CO. are developing a scanning micrograph of the electron structure of a polypeptide compound.

The team’s next step is to expand their studies to look at the magnetic properties of many more types of organic compounds.NUGGUCH is also part of the team that developed the electron imaging method used to find the structure and shape of the hydrogen atom in the early days of atomic energy.
This technique was developed to study molecules like sugars and proteins in nature and, ultimately, to predict how they would behave under different types of magnetic field conditions.
