The article discusses the development of a three-dimensional imaging system for surface electron microscopy. A team of physicists from Monash University developed the system while using photoemission electron microscopy. The method allows the measurement of shape and depth using interference fringes created with ultraviolet light, causing emission of electrons that can be analyzed using an electron microscope. The process will allow scientists to study how materials evolve.
