ChipScope News

Welcome to the last newsletter of the EC funded project ChipScope!.

After four years of intense work, the ChipScope project ends in December. The researchers from the partner institutes and universities in Barcelona, Rome, Braunschweig, Vienna, Neuchâtel and Munich are happy to share latest results.

Electronically activated scanning transmission optical microscopes

During the last four years, the Chipscope project has been focused on pursuing super resolution with a nanoLED array-based approach to microscopy. As a main result, electronically activated scanning transmission optical microscopes have been produced for the first time.

NanoLEDs for next generation of ChipScope microscope ready

The optical resolution of the ChipScope microscope is defined by the size and distance of individually addressable LEDs underneath the specimen. In the final phase of the ChipScope project, the team of researchers from TUBS has realized nanoLED arrays with emitters down to 200 nm size and 400 nm distance, which will bring resolution close to the refraction limit.

Optical design of InGaN/GaN nanoLED arrays on a chip: towards highly resolved illumination

The group at University of Rome Tor Vergata has studied in detail optical crosstalk between neighbouring pixels of 3D structured nanoLED arrays and its dependence on LED size and pitch. In order to quantify crosstalk, the light spot of the emission from a single pixel at the object plane has been looked at.
