The captions shows the dramatic encounter, in the liver, of our unsung heroes, the immune cells, and an invading parasite, the trypanosome. Each side bears an impressive arsenal of chemical weapons that will define at the end the unset, or not, of the Sleeping Sickness.

Particles were found on the wafer surfaces inline after a plasma was generated through this quartz tube. I cracked open the tube and found how the plasma was etching into the quartz, revealing these structures that would eventually thin enough to break off and land on the wafer.

Cylinders of nickel grown by electroforming and after lift-off of the corresponding resist mask. In some cases, the nickel overpassed the resist (muffins), while other cylinders broke at the base (little tarts). The resist has been written with the photolithography technique.

Incandescent light bulbs are very inefficient in transforming energy into light. Since about 20% of the world’s total electricity consumption is used for lighting, a new and more efficient light source has to be developed. One solution is solid-state lighting, which employs light-emitting diodes (LEDs) made from semiconducting materials. The image shows the cathodoluminescence (CL) from an LED excited by the electron beam of an FEI Quanta 250. CL imaging helps to understand the properties of these LEDs and gives valuable insight into prevalent defects, such as the ring-shaped defect in the image, in order to improve the devices.

It is Er doped ZnO compound. It was produced by sol-gel method. ZnO is a wide-bandgap semiconductor. As can be seen from the figure, it has hexagonal structure. ZnO has several favorable properties, including good transparency, high electron mobility, wide bandgap strong room-temperature luminescence that used in various applications. And the properties that mentioned above can be improved by adding some kind of dopings Because of these reasons we have tried to produced Er doped ZnO in nanoscale.

Image obtained during the examination of an automotive light bulb to determine the cause of premature rupture of the filament. It shows a layer of iron oxide, involving a tungsten filament. At the bottom, the presence of liquid phase indicates that there was overheating due to short circuit.
