Polystyrene lamellar structures composed of nanospheres. When dispersed on a solid substrate (in this case silicon) the multiple layers of polystyrene nanospheres can crack during drying, due to capillary forces.

The array of micro-gratings fabricated on the facet of violet-blue InGaN semiconductor laser structure using ion beam provides high reflection to light beam emitted from the laser. It looks like array of walls to block, resist and reflect the light beam back to its origin direction.

PLGA (poly lactic-co-glycolic acid) is a biodegradable and biocompatible copolymer that is widely used in the pharmaceutical industry as a drug delivery vehicle.PLGA microspheres were attached to a SEM stub with a carbon adhesive disc and being transferred using a squirrel hair brush. Excess sample was removed with a gentle spray of compressed air and then placed into the FEI Quanta FEG 200 for imaging. To enhance surface morphology of the spheres, a low accelerating voltage of 2KV was selected to be the optimum for this kind of sample with a chamber pressure of 180 Pascal’s. A digital image was captured, imported into photoshop and coloured by Steve Gschmeissner.

Crystallized negative stain salts are usually seen as a source of artifacts, but here a certain aesthetic value was readily apparent.

Surface of activated carbon used as adsorbent in water treatment processes. Activated carbons are porous nature materials with high internal surface which gives them excellent adsorbent properties. This carbon has been prepared from biomass waste, specifically from walnut shells.

This is the cover page image published in Developmental Cell, August 14 2012. The Image was taken at Center for Electron Microscopy and Nanofabrication, Portland State University by instrument manager Greg Baty to support the post doctorial research work of Katie Kindt at OHSU (Teresa Nicolson lab Oregon Hearing Research Center). The research was funded by NIH and HHMI grant. The image is of a Zebra fish neuromast taken near the ear. Katie Kindt false colored the SEM image taken by Greg Baty Katie’s main interest in taking the SEM image was to examine the stereocilia and correlate the result with confocal studies that where performed while the zebra fish was alive. Katie and Gabe Finch at OHSU had a difficult time preparing the fish for SEM, due to the variability in a rapidly growing fish that is three days old. It was necessary to perform some digestion to expose the cilia for fixation. This was a very difficult imaging job for Greg since CEMN does not have a sputter coater with a tilting orbital stage and our Sirion is a high vacuum only instrument. The length and geometry of the cilia combined with charging due to poor coating tends to cause the celia to move in the electron beam. It took an interdisciplinary team effort to produce an image of this quality on a high vacuum XL30 Sirion. K. S. Kindt, G. Finch, and T.
