These optical components are called gratings because they are grooved with lines off which light bounces, or diffracts.
As shown in Magid's conversations with both Mickey and Millat, he believes the FutureMouse project is able to diffract readings on science, religion, culture, etc.
This technique is limited because it is difficult to grow crystals for all proteins, samples for x-ray crystallography need to be very pure and uniform, and crystals of large complexes may not diffract to high resolution.
Just as light waves diffract off a diffraction grating, the electron beam will diffract off the crystal structure of the atoms in the sample.
