Microscopy curriculum stimulates STEM excitement
Success stories from teachers show that STEM curriculum using the scanning electron microscope excites their students and improves academic performance.
Novel combinations of polishing techniques on fused silica substrates produce super-polished mirrors with effective surface roughness of 0.25nm.
In-flight radiometric calibration procedures will be used to track changes in instrument throughput during the mission and to verify pre-flight laboratory tests.
Metasurfaces that can be reconfigured by microelectromechanical systems allow extreme switching in scattering parameters.
