False-coloured image of T4 bacteriophage incubated with a de novo-designed self assembling peptide fibre (SAF). Small peptides, 28 amino acids long, self assemble to form fibres ~80 nm wide and ~40 microns long. The T4 tail striation distance was being used as a high-resolution calibrant to register the lateral striations of the fibre.

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.

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.

Well preserved ~1 billionw year old Organic microfossils were found at Bitter Springs Formation of Australia. The FIB was used at NASA-JSC Labs. to prepare ultra-thin cross sections and then HRTEM and STXM/XANES analyses were performed.Together these analyses of FIBed organic microfossils from Early Earth materials open up a new line of research where we can more specifically characterize remnants of early life. Data from these studies would provide insight into recognizing fragmentary organic remains from living systems from either the early Earth or extraterrestrial bodies. In the picture, the cross section of filamentous microfossils are visible.

Hydrothermally synthesized microclusters of SrCuSi4O10 crystals. We are interesting in exploring the hydrothermal chemistry of the metal copper tetrasilicate system in order to better match the size and morphology of our NIR emitting crystals to application.

The Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) image is of the head of an embryonic Zebrafish. This is a model organism currently being used for studies into the genetic causes of neurodegeneration. This research project involves Kim Wager, a Ph.D. student jointly supervised by Dr Claire Russell (RVC) and Professor Robert Harvey (UCL School of Pharmacy). The Zebrafish was imaged under a FEI Quanta 200F Scanning Electron Microscope. Firstly, the sample was chemically fixed in 4% (w/v) paraformaldehyde in 0.1M Sodium Cacodylate buffer, followed by dehydration in graduated alcohol and drying in a Leica Critical Point (CPD300) dryer. Prior to imaging, the specimen was given a 5nm gold coating in a Quorum Q150 Sputter coater and imaged at 5KV. In addition, a high tilt angle of 65 degrees enhanced the full structure of the head region. A high-resolution digital image was captured, imported into Photoshop and was artistically coloured by Ms Annie Cavanagh.
