Atomic Structure of a Family of Amyloid Fibrils

Pictured are the atomic-resolution structures of three amyloid polymorphs against a (falsely coloured) background image of the fibrils taken with a transmission electron microscope. Determining the fibril structures, and defining the major structural elements and interactions contributing to their hierarchical self-assembly, provides insight into the formation of polymorphic amyloid in a range of protein deposition disorders including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases.

The invisible ancient ruins

I was having breakfast when I noticed some strange looking mold on the wood of the table where I was sitting. I was only expecting an amorphous surface when looking at the mold with the scanning electron microscope but those blue crystals on the image appeared … What are those strange crystals on the mold? They seem to be some ancient elven ruins from the micro world we cannot see with our eyes…

Electronic nose

The pictured shows a electronic sensors made of tin oxide nanowires grown on gold nanoparticles in monocrystalline silicon substrate. The "electronic nose" sensors based on semiconductor oxides gases are an industrial reality, and the subject of many investigations regarding new materials and sensor technology, data processing, interpretation and validation of results. It is a non-destructive technique used to characterize odorants in various applications related to quality of life, such as food control, the quality of the environment, public safety or clinical diagnosis.

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.
