New paper: "Teaching a hands-on course during corona lockdown: from problems to opportunities"
Rolf Hut, Eric Verschuur and Freek Pols published a paper on how the freshman course Design Engineering for Physics Students was adapted. Teaching a hands- and minds-on course, in which feedback is essential in order to learn, is difficult, especially in times of COVID-19 where student progression cannot be monitored directly.

Coherent Fourier scatterometry reveals nerve fiber crossings in the brain
In January, Miriam Menzel visited the optics group to work on an experiment to measure scattering patterns in monkey and human brain tissue using coherent Fourier scatterometry. By transmitting a non-focused laser beam through unstained histological brain sections, the scattering patterns for small tissue regions (with diameters of 0.1–1 mm) were obtained. These patterns show accordance with the simulated scattering patterns. In this way we showed that is possible to reveal individual fiber orientations for up to three crossing nerve fiber bundles, with crossing angles down to 25°.

Unieke coherente Soft X-Ray-bron aangekomen in Delft
Bij de Optics Research groep van de afdeling Imaging Physics is onlangs een Soft X-Ray-bron geïnstalleerd. De bron gaat een belangrijke rol spelen binnen het LINX-consortium, dat geleid wordt door de TU Delft. Het doel van dit consortium is om nieuwe technieken te ontwikkelen om extreem kleine structuren af te beelden in 3D, bijvoorbeeld op de nieuwe generatie computerchips.
