Hybrid inorganic/polymer based photovoltaic nanodevices offer the promise of low cost large area conversion of solar energy to electricity. Nanostructures of zinc oxide have shown supreme capabilities in emerging technologies ranging from solar energy harvesting to biosensing. However, the ability to control the size and position of these nanostructures is crucial for fabricating nanodevices with remarkable properties and astonishing solar energy conversion efficiencies. Herein, we present a collection of scanning electron micrographs of zinc oxide nanostructures prepared by low temperature hydrothermal methods Image taken and Processed by Luisa Whittaker PhD.

The picture shows the structures of molybdenum thin film grown on a polymer and grouped in a similar way to chromosomes. Molybdenum thin films are used as back contact in thin film based solar cells.

Particles were found on the wafer surfaces inline after a plasma was generated through this quartz tube. I cracked open the tube and found how the plasma was etching into the quartz, revealing these structures that would eventually thin enough to break off and land on the wafer.

The preparation of 100 nm thin cryo sections in the FIB-SEM. Due to the flexibility of the ice sheets, support is required to stabilize the structure during milling. Hence this construction is chosen, which resembles a medieval city wall.

The image shows a 10*10, 1.5mm long, 400 micron pitch Utah Neural Wireless Electrode array for communicating with individual neurons from the brain. The substrate consists of machined crisscross channels which are 500 μm deep, filled with glass frits (insulator between each electrode), with backside metallization (not visible in the picture) using microfabricaion techniques for integration with the electronics. The frontside of the array is machined into 100 electrodes on a wafer level followed by acid etching of the columns to form pointed needles with fine surface texture. The tips of all the electrodes are coated with Iridium oxide in order to communicate with neurons during the stimulation and recording from the brain.

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…

Cretaceous sedimentary rocks which occur on Snow Hill Island Antarctica, include spectacular mounds dominated by fossil bivalves. In amongst the bivalves are complex carbonate mineral cements, interpreted to have formed as a result of methane seeping through the sediments on the Cretaceous sea floor. The carbonate cements are complex but this QEMSCAN fieldscan image allows us to map the texture of polished thin sections of these spectacular rocks. Image size is 11mm square and mapped at 5 microns x-ray resolution. Image courtesy of Dr Duncan Pirrie and Dr Gavyn Rollinson, CSM,UOE,UK.
