Biochar is a highly porous carbon-rich material produced by pyrolysis of biomass. The SEM image shows micropores in a wood-derived biochar sample. Due to its unique properties such as high porosity, large surface area, and presence of negatively charged organic functional groups, biochar is used as adsorbent for the removal of various contaminants in soil and wastewater. Biochar is a simple yet powerful tool for soil and waste management, energy production, and C-sequestration to mitigate climate change.

Platinum Nanorods on Silicon

The image shows an array of freestanding Pt nanorods on silicon fabricated by electron beam induced deposition from the gas phase. The individual rods reveal a base diameter of about 80 nm and a hight of 1 µm. The wavy appearance was actually an artifact but too nice to be ignored. Image was post-colorized by Margit Wallner (FELMI).

Gallium Phosphide

Pyramidal shape (ice cream like) of a GaP nanocolumn tipped by a spherical ball containing Ga + In metallic liquid. The metallic ball is coverd by a carbon nanomembrane. The structure was grown by the Metallorganic Chemical Vapours Phase Technique. The colors were obtained by mixing the signals of secondary and backscattered electrons. The mixing is performed using the software FEI Company.
