Twinning defects in Bilayer (flower) and Trilayer (hexagon, bottom) Oriented graphene sheets are revealed by contrast changes in this series of Warhal-inspired Dark-Field TEM images. Strain induced Moire patterns (hexagon, top) are caused by a small lattice mismatch in the first and third layers. The layers are colored by their thickness, and each of the six images correspond to a different diffraction peak, providing unique information regarding the nature of these defects.

Chromium hexacarbonyl vapour was carried by argon through a heated capillary and impinged onto silicon substrate. Due to the temperature of the capillary, the chromium hexacarbonyl dissociated upon impact and chemisorbed onto the surface - forming horns growing towards the axis of the capillary.

False-colored SEM image of the surface of a kidney stone. Urolithiasis is a common condition, with a prevalence of about 10%. Various types of urinary calculi have been described upon their mineral content and/or their morphology. The depicted stone is made of calcium phosphate crystals.
