Developing Glandular Trichomes of Basil

Formation of glandular trichomes on lower leaf surface of a young leaf of basil (Ocimum basilicum). The smaller trichomes with four evident cells have just formed and the cuticles covering their four glandular cells still adhere to the glandular cells. Three of the larger trichomes are more mature and essential oils secreted from the glandular cells of these trichomes have caused the cuticles covering them to separate from the cells and balloon outward, hiding the glandular cap cells below. This unfixed leaf was imaged with an FEI Quanta 200F SEM in environmental mode at Washington State University’s Franceschi Microscopy and Imaging Center. Scale bar = 150 µm.

Magnetic field of earth perturbed by a sun storm

The picture was taken after the growth by CVD of silicon nanowires on a copper foil with gold on top. When I saw it I remembered the perturbation caused by sun storms on magnetic field of the earth. These nanowires will be used to manufacture anodes of ion-Li batteries.

Gold Mushroom

Gold Nanorods are electrochemically grown to produce SERS active surfaces. Each rod has a diameter of approximately 200nm, however, the length is dependent on the deposition time. If the deposition time is too long, then rods become longer than the template. Without site directed growth, the gold forms larger aggregates, which resulted in the formation of the gold mushroom after the template was removed.
