In a major step toward developing portable scanners that can rapidly measure molecules on the pharmaceutical production line or classify tissue in patients’ skin, a Princeton-led team of researchers has created an imaging system that uses lasers small and efficient enough to fit on a microchip.
The team demonstrated the system’s resolution by using it to image a U.S. quarter. Fine details like the eagle’s wing feathers, as small as one-fifth of a millimeter wide, were clearly visible.

Many mutations in DNA that contribute to disease are not in actual genes but instead lie in the 99% of the genome once considered "junk."

Hurricane Sandy sent a clear message on climate change, Tammy Snyder Murphy, the first lady of New Jersey, told the audience in her keynote speech at a Princeton climate conference Friday, Sept. 21.
“We’re not looking at Sandy as just some part of our history, but something that we know will happen again unless we take action,” said Murphy, who plays a key role in the governor’s administration on climate and environmental policy. “We are accepting the challenge that climate change has presented. We are committed to making this state the magnet for innovative solutions.”
