Arrays of Nickel Nanowires

The arrays of nickel nanowires have been produced by electro-deposition of nickel into the pores of porous alumina membranes. The membrane has been resolved by chemical etching and free standing nanowires perpendicular to a substrate have been obtained. Due to their ferromagnetic properties, the nanowires have possible applications in high density magnetic recording media. The picture shows a cross section view of the nickel nanowire array.

Ti-rich Sulfide from Meteorite

Sub-micrometer grains of a Ti-rich sulfide phase were discovered in the Yamato 691 meteorite. The FIB was used at NASA-JSC Labs. to extract a thin x-section of the grains. Subsequent TEM analyses verified the composition and crystal structure of the phase and and a new mineral was discovered. In the picrure, the sub-micron grain of the new mineral is shown in yellow color.

Strained Gold Nanoparticle

The Moiré-fringe image of a 30 nm decahedral gold nanoparticle shows five-fold rotational symmetry (black fringes) that results from serial twinning and shows the internal distortion of the atomic structure (indicated by the gradual change of the color fringes) that accommodates this unique geometry. The Moiré-fringe image was extracted from the original TEM image taken on the spherical-aberration-corrected Tecnai F20 at the CEMES-CNRS in Toulouse, France. Such particles have tremendous potential as components of nanoscale plasmonic devices for imaging, cancer therapy, and biosensing among other applications.
