Looking forward to all the applications this will be used in!

A new microscopy method that ditches lenses altogether could create the highest-resolution images ever seen. The system reconstructs an image from the electron waves scattered by a sample, and has no fundamental experimental limits imposed by constraints like blurry glass or wavelengths of visible light. It can even be used to image live cells without harming them.

Interesting. Usually electron microscopy techniques get adapted much later to x-rays. This time it's the other way around.
