Presolar Grain

This image shows a Sub-micron, nano meter sized pre-solar grain, isolated using FIB Qunta 3D-FEG, at the Johnson Space Center NASA. The grain is right under the carbon cap on the very top of the pillar shown in the picture. This sample is from a meteorite and the isolated grain showed, which later on experimentally proved, to be a pre-solar grain. This procedure of isolation made it possible to perform NANO-SIMS analysis and later on preparing a thin X-Section for TEM analysis on this really really precious grain. The study helped towards understanding the formation of stars in our galaxy as well as the origin of our own solar system.

Micro Electrical Mechanical System (MEMS)

Micro Electrical Mechanical System (MEMS) microchip. Showing the large depth of field possible with our microscope, the popup mountain device is visible raised in comparison to the chip as a whole. This device is powered solely by the electron beam itself, using a technique know as micro charge pump actuation.

Black and white chocolate

These structures are defective capacitors of a Silicon chip. Polysilicon top plates present different gray levels : This is an illustration of Passive Voltage Contrast, the polysilicon top plates are charged up by the primary e-beam and this charge amount is modulated by different capacitor leakage levels.

Self Assembly of Polystyrene Nanospheres

Self assembly of 500 nm polystyrene nanospheres onto optical photoresist. The nanospheres acts like microlenses, exposing the resist and patterning it with a dot structure. After metalisation (in this case sputtered permalloy) the following lift-off leaves the metal structure on the upper pert of the microphoto. In the lower part the original array of self-assembled nanospheres used as microlenses.
