A Novel, Patented (#9170414) Light Microscope Technology that Achieves World-Record Resolving Power: The Moleculescope by Yancy Corporation

Yancy, Corp. has developed the Moleculescope, a novel, patented (#9170414) light microscope technology that achieves world-record resolving power. The Moleculescope is a wide-field true-real-time reflected-visible-light microscope which, unlike existing light microscope technology, is not diffraction-limited.

The underlying mechanic is well understood and protected by a comprehensive set of claims in US Patent #9170414 (international patents pending). Yancy, Corp. intends to establish a subsidiary corporation from which to license the intellectual property.

The Moleculescope


Current Worldwide Microscope & Metrology Microscope Systems limited capabilities.
Low Resolution Measurements & Graph Images Destructive to Sample Extensive Sample Prep
The Moleculescope unlimited capabilities.
Super Resolution Actual Sight Time Observation Non-Destructive to Sample No Sample Prep

The Moleculescope’s Revolutionary Capability

The System represents a revolutionary improvement to the state-of-the-art magnification in “existing, visible light, wide-field, super-resolution techniques”.

Where existing techniques are small improvements to stretch the Abbe limit of d = λ/2 = 250 nm, the System-design is not subject to Abbe at all, instead only being limited by the quality of its optical components.

Existing techniques are difficult, costly, and/or destructive (which has limited adoption to researchers operating within strict protocols). Our System design may be widely adopted by the metrology industry.

Mid Level Magnification Comparison

High Level Magnification Comparison

For HRSTEM High-Angle Annular Darkfield Detectors (HAADF) are used for the electronic treatment of data produced by electrons scattered at large angles. The contrast in the HAADF image is - beside of the inner and outer detector angles - only dependent on the thickness of the sample, the atomic number of the probed atoms, and the density of matter. HAADF images are therefore called Z-contrast images.

The magnification of the image is contrary to HRTEM not depending on the settings of the projector system, but only influenced by the angle of electron beam deflection during scanning across the specimen. The resolution of the image is mainly influenced by the focussing of the small electron probe, which is focussed down to the atomic level for HRSTEM applications. In this situation the atomic positions are imaged and the HRSTEM image is directly interpretable, which is the largest advantage compared to HRTEM.


Investment Opportunity


The Moleculescope market projections spreadsheet shows the ten-year plan for introduction of application products produced by an OEM based on the Moleculescope technology. The 23 applications are listed with the projected intro date and the quantities that will be produced. The revenue created by the sale of these products is listed and totaled year by year with ten year totals. Listed also is a description of each application product.

The ten-year total sales revenue for an OEM that produces the Moleculescope application products is: $312.1 billion.
