Sub-micron pre-solar grain from outer space

A 250nm pre-solar grain was isolated from the substrate using FEI Quanta 3D-FEG. The grain is seen on top of the center pillar right under the Pt cap. The process is extremely delicate and precise, thanks to the stability of this FIB system. The sample is from a meteorite somewhere from outer space and the pre-solar grain was first identified in it by its unique isotopic signature.

Phoretic Nano-swimmers

The Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) image is of ‘Nano Swimmers’ that are currently being investigated for potential use as novel drug carriers. These coiled structures are 25 microns in length, 5 microns in diameter and 300 nanometres in thickness. They are composed of a polymer with nickel/titanium coating and were fabricated by the Multi-Scale Robotics Laboratory, ETH Zurich and in collaboration with the NanoMedicine Laboratory, UCL School of Pharmacy. The swimmers were imaged under a FEI Quanta 200F Scanning Electron Microscope; firstly, the sample was given a 5nm gold coating in a Quorum Q150 Sputter coater and imaged at 5KV. In addition a tilt angle of 65 degrees enhanced their full structure, high resolution digital images were captured and imported into photoshop, where they were artistically manipulated and coloured by Ms Annie Cavanagh.
