Lithium Ions into Bulk Silicon

When intercalating Lithium ions into bulk silicon,the expansion of the host materrial is tremedous and provokes the formation of features with varius shapes: volcanoes, rifts, etc.

Developing Glandular Trichomes of Basil

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.

Trabecular Rete of Human Oculus

The trabecular rete of human oculus consists of crossing collagen fibers with cells and extracellular matrix on the surface. Also on the surface of the trabeculae we can see round granules (not bacteria) of organic origin. The use of SEM in ophthalmologic microsurgery allows to evaluate the quality of surgical technique. These studies were conducted jointly with Lyubimova T.S. from Scientific Technical Complex “Microsurgery of oculus”.

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.
