3D imaging of computer chips for security, quality control and reverse engineering

Researchers at the Paul Scherrer Institute have built the first “microscope” probe that can produce 3D images of natural or engineered objects, zooming seamlessly from the macro- to the nano-scale. The probe already can be used in a variety of science and engineering fields, like monitoring the quality of computer chips.
