Pyramidal shape (ice cream like) of a GaP nanocolumn tipped by a spherical ball containing Ga + In metallic liquid. The metallic ball is coverd by a carbon nanomembrane. The structure was grown by the Metallorganic Chemical Vapours Phase Technique. The colors were obtained by mixing the signals of secondary and backscattered electrons. The mixing is performed using the software FEI Company.

Nanostructured hydroxyapatite powder with biopolymers. Microparticles formed by nanoparticles of hydroxyapatite crystals, with needle shape and stabilized with polymer surfactants, resulting in a structure similar to a blackberry. In the field of regenerative medicine, there is a great use of this biomaterial due to the similarity to the main inorganic constituent of natural bone and teeth. The synthetic hydroxyapatite has excellent biocompatibility and bioactivity to be used as a suitable bone substitute.

The image shows a 10*10, 1.5mm long, 400 micron pitch Utah Neural Wireless Electrode array for communicating with individual neurons from the brain. The substrate consists of machined crisscross channels which are 500 μm deep, filled with glass frits (insulator between each electrode), with backside metallization (not visible in the picture) using microfabricaion techniques for integration with the electronics. The frontside of the array is machined into 100 electrodes on a wafer level followed by acid etching of the columns to form pointed needles with fine surface texture. The tips of all the electrodes are coated with Iridium oxide in order to communicate with neurons during the stimulation and recording from the brain.

I was having breakfast when I noticed some strange looking mold on the wood of the table where I was sitting. I was only expecting an amorphous surface when looking at the mold with the scanning electron microscope but those blue crystals on the image appeared … What are those strange crystals on the mold? They seem to be some ancient elven ruins from the micro world we cannot see with our eyes…

This image is of salmonella bacteria, a low kV was essential in order to visualise the surface detail of the bacteria, so the image was taken with the VcD (backscatter detector), using beam decelleration.

A blown filament from an IR lamp is shown on the image. The melted area seen on the tip is where it burned and cracked while working. The rest of the filament, that is in a healthy state, is a perfect and beautiful double spiral geometry .
