SPI image of a nano-meter sized virus.An international collaboration has been formed by SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory to develop single particle imaging (SPI). Under the name of the SPI-initiative, we were awarded beam time at the AMO endstation and successfully performed single particle imaging with viruses. The picture you can see on the left is a diffraction pattern from a ~70nm in diameter virus. I had a leading role in running the AMO beam line and LAMP endstation, and was helping with sample injection during the beam time. There is a nicely written article on SLACs website if you would like to read on.
