A heat map showing an active micro-mirror used in biomedical imaging systems

This image shows the heatmap of an active micro-mirror which researchers are developing to transform biomedical imaging systems. The angle of this minute mirror can be manipulated through heating via electrical current, providing greater control of the imaging process. Incorporating these mirrors into light-sheet microscopes, we aim to reduce the size of equipment, and therefore the cost of building them, making them more accessible to developing countries.
