Hey guys, we should probably decide whether were going to cover all types of electron microscopy (EM) or just one (eg. Scanning Electron Micrograph or Reflection Electron Micrograph). I think we should cover all, and im looking for resources on EM tonight.--Dougall Norris 06:30, 17 March 2010 (UTC)

That sounds good. What do we want to cover about each EM - history, uses, what each is, how they work, etc. This is the wiki page for EM Electron Microscope. --z3252340 06:46, 17 March 2010 (UTC)

Do you think we should cover Transmission Electron Microscopy? I guess we will if we decide to do all types of electron microscopy, which I think might be a good idea. TEM pictures are always being used in the lectures.The Wikipedia entry is [1]. And yes, I think we need to cover history, how it works, uses etc. Maybe also touch on what kind of things EM helped discover? On another note, I draw, so if we need our own diagrams drawn up I can do that. --z3252833 02:50, 24 March 2010 (UTC)

So Mark just said to look at how they work, their history and what they are currently used for. Apparently there are new cryofixation and immunochemical techniques.--z3252833 05:23, 24 March 2010 (UTC)

Yeah for all of the above, mark said its better that we gather research and it will begin to take shape.--z3252261 06:02, 24 March 2010 (UTC)

Thats good. i'm gonna see what sort of research i can find on EM --Emily Wong 06:20, 24 March 2010 (UTC)

Ok im gonna start here [2]--z3252261 06:48, 24 March 2010 (UTC)

Hey all. So for now, do we want to focus on Transmission Electron Microscopy and Scanning Electron Microscopy? They seem to be the major ones. And I suggest we break it down into the major categories we need to address - history, how they work and current/future uses. If you don't mind, can I do how they work? I draw, so I can incorporate diagrams (since we have to draw some of our own diagrams) into that. --z3252833 06:17, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

I don't mind doing history --Emily Wong 06:18, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

Yeah for sure, that sounds awesome --Dougall Norris 06:20, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

Okay, so we've changed the headings around some more so things make more sense - so at the moment I'm doing what the different microscopes are and how they work, and Emily's offered to do history and the introduction, so Dougall, is it okay if you do current/future uses and the kinds of microscopes at UNSW right now? --z3252833 06:45, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

No worries, if i come across resources that look good for your areas ill post them too --Dougall Norris 06:23, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

Emily, what you've done is awesome. I'm sorry it's taking me so long to put up my part; I promise I've got the information, I've just had a stupid crazy time of late. I've finally got time tomorrow so I should have my all my stuff up then, and it will most definitely be done by the weekend. And Dougall, I just looked and you're writing stuff, so yay for you too. --z3252833 04:04, 21 April 2010 (UTC)

Uh, guys, who's doing the introduction? --z3252833 04:08, 21 April 2010 (UTC)

Hey Dougall, for your current and future uses I think there's some new kinds of fixation that have been developed that can help improve the image; I'm not sure but I think it was advances in cryo-fixation. Thought it might help. --z3252833 11:15, 22 April 2010 (UTC)

Just so you know guys, I'm drawing the diagrams of the TEM and SEM and I'll have them up on Saturday. And I emailed a guy to get permission to use his information, and he sent me back links to sites where he knows there are science public domain pictures: <> and here <>. --z3252833 12:44, 22 April 2010 (UTC)
