Scanning transmission ion microscopy (STIM) of joint cartilage could visualise single collagen fibrils. Thus, answers to the controversial questions of their alignment could be given. However, the fibrils form three-dimensional structures that are not yet fully disclosed. STIM tomography is needed to give more detailed information. The size of the structures requires a challenging resolution of about 100 nm. The first STIM tomographic experiment has been performed at the Leipzig nanoprobe...[Show more]
