The Moiré-fringe image of a 30 nm decahedral gold nanoparticle shows five-fold rotational symmetry (black fringes) that results from serial twinning and shows the internal distortion of the atomic structure (indicated by the gradual change of the color fringes) that accommodates this unique geometry. The Moiré-fringe image was extracted from the original TEM image taken on the spherical-aberration-corrected Tecnai F20 at the CEMES-CNRS in Toulouse, France. Such particles have tremendous potential as components of nanoscale plasmonic devices for imaging, cancer therapy, and biosensing among other applications.

Frontal view to the compound eyes of a moquito. The surface of each single eye has a rough appearance which gives them a violet shimmer in real life. Between and above the eyes fine scales, similar to the ones at butterflies can be seen.

Bacillus anthracis, a bacteria used as biological weapon: ANTHRAX. Anthrax is an acute disease in humans and animals caused by the bacterium Bacillus anthracis, which is highly lethal in some forms. Magnification 8000:1
Image obtained during the examination of an automotive light bulb to determine the cause of premature rupture of the filament. It shows a layer of iron oxide, involving a tungsten filament. At the bottom, the presence of liquid phase indicates that there was overheating due to short circuit.
Gold particles imaged at 50eV landing energy. The extreme high surface sensitivity allows to clearly distinguish the dark carbon contamination and obtain a precise view of the sample topography Product: Verios SEM
