The most accurate large-area, high-resolution map of neuronal tissue ever recorded was captured by the CHIPSCANNER scanning electron microscope in a collaboration between Raith and The George Washington University, Washington, D.C. As the problem of mapping neurons for the field of connectomics is essentially a reverse engineering problem, it made perfect sense to approach it by using the CHIPSCANNER, which is an automated large-area, high-resolution SEM that has been robustly serving the IC reverse engineering community for over 15 years.
