Yanik work could lead to a quantum look at life

Mehmet Fatih Yanik, the Robert J. Shillman assistant professor of electrical engineering in EECS at MIT has discovered a way that will enable viewing a single live cell--without destroying the cell--the current outcome of using electron microscopes to see live tissue. Yanik and EECS graduate student William Putnam propose to overcome the harmful effects from direct scanning with electrons by using a quantum mechanical measurement technique that allows electrons to sense objects remotely.
