Sub-micron pre-solar grain from outer space

A 250nm pre-solar grain was isolated from the substrate using FEI Quanta 3D-FEG. The grain is seen on top of the center pillar right under the Pt cap. The process is extremely delicate and precise, thanks to the stability of this FIB system. The sample is from a meteorite somewhere from outer space and the pre-solar grain was first identified in it by its unique isotopic signature.

Arrays of Nickel Nanowires

The arrays of nickel nanowires have been produced by electro-deposition of nickel into the pores of porous alumina membranes. The membrane has been resolved by chemical etching and free standing nanowires perpendicular to a substrate have been obtained. Due to their ferromagnetic properties, the nanowires have possible applications in high density magnetic recording media. The picture shows a cross section view of the nickel nanowire array.

PLGA Microsphere

PLGA (poly lactic-co-glycolic acid) is a biodegradable and biocompatible copolymer that is widely used in the pharmaceutical industry as a drug delivery vehicle.PLGA microspheres were attached to a SEM stub with a carbon adhesive disc and being transferred using a squirrel hair brush. Excess sample was removed with a gentle spray of compressed air and then placed into the FEI Quanta FEG 200 for imaging. To enhance surface morphology of the spheres, a low accelerating voltage of 2KV was selected to be the optimum for this kind of sample with a chamber pressure of 180 Pascal’s. A digital image was captured, imported into photoshop and coloured by Steve Gschmeissner.
