A billion year old microfossils

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.

Recombination of a Dislocation Dipole in Ti2N

Shot peening of Ti-45Al-10Nb in air leads to partial amorphisation of the outermost layer and to the formation of a contaminant nanocrystalline (T, Al)N phase, presumably Ti2N. The figure shows dislocation recovery within a nano-crystalline grain embedded into the amorphous phase of the shot peened surface layer, as observed in situ. Three dislocations are marked by symbols. Stage (i): The isolated dislocation on the left hand side is relatively immobile. The two other dislocations are in a dipole configuration and propagate towards each other and are about to annihilate in stage (ii). Stage (iii) shows the situation after annihilation of the dipole dislocations; this is indicated by the continuous trace of the lattice planes. Observations made at room temperature with an acceleration voltage of 300 kV. It should be noted that the micrographs were sligthly compressed along the vertical direction in order to make the dislocations readily visible. The figure demonstrates the high electrical, thermal and mechanical stability of the instrument.
