Thor, the Nikon A1 confocal and N-SIM super-resolution microscope, is back up and running after some repairs. Thor will be holding office hours Wednesday July 22 (10am-12pm) and Monday July 27 (10am-12pm). Feel free to stop by with a slide and see what SIM and/or GaAsP detectors can do for your imaging experiments or just see it in action with a demo slide.
