The in vivo interaction between a wild type P. aeruginosa biofilm, on a silicone implant, and the responding polymorphonuclear leukocytes. SEM visualization depicts the interaction at day 1 post insertion of the implant in peritoneal cavity of a mouse. The leukocytes (yellow) are killed by the bacteria (cyan), as seen from their damaged appearance, with obvious cavities in the membrane, after contact with the WT biofilm.

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”.

Hexagonal pattern etched in silicon during optical exposure of the photoresist, the contact between substrate and photomask was not optimal, causing the shape of the hexagons to be distorted due to diffraction phenomena.

Here we can see a stereoscopic image of a faceup woodlouse. You need 3D stereoscopic glasses (red and blue) to see the "volume". If the image does not look good... turn over the glasses.

Amarylis stigma (pink) with pollen grains (yellow) adhering to sticky glands on its surface. Some pollen tubes (olive green) carrying genetic material can be seen on top of the stigma. Imaged in low vacuum without prior dehydration. Dynamic focus and long working distance used for depth of focus.

The Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) image is of the head of a Dust Mite. It was imaged under a FEI Quanta 200F Scanning Electron Microscope, under low vacuum conditions. Using a tilt angle of 65 degrees enhanced the full structure of the Mite. A high-resolution digital image was captured, imported into Photoshop and was artistically coloured by Ms Annie Cavanagh

The hydration of calcium sulphate hemihydrate (CaSO4.0,5H2O) leads to gypsum (calcium sulphate dihydrate – CaSO4.2H2O). It is a highly exothermic reaction which occurs by a dissolution/reprecipitation mechanism: when the hemihydrate is mixed with water, a fraction of it dissolves to give a saturated solution with respect to Ca2+ and SO4 2- ions, which is supersaturated with respect to calcium sulfphate dihydrate leading to nucleation and crystal growth. ESEM images taken from the hemihydrate hydration process. One can follow water adsorption to the hemihydrate at a 100% RH and the resulting needle-like crystals which result after water elimination.

False-colored SEM image of the surface of a kidney stone. Urolithiasis is a common condition, with a prevalence of about 10%. Various types of urinary calculi have been described upon their mineral content and/or their morphology. The depicted stone is made of calcium phosphate crystals.
