False-colored SEM image of the parasite Trypanosoma brucei gambiense (15 micrometers long) responsible for human sleeping sickness in Western and Central Africa. Human innate immunity is overpowered by this parasite through a mechanism that we have discovered in our laboratory. We have dedicated the past two decades to study the molecular arms race between humans and trypanosomes and discovered the importance of resistance to these parasites in human evolution.

Gold Nanorods are electrochemically grown to produce SERS active surfaces. Each rod has a diameter of approximately 200nm, however, the length is dependent on the deposition time. If the deposition time is too long, then rods become longer than the template. Without site directed growth, the gold forms larger aggregates, which resulted in the formation of the gold mushroom after the template was removed.

Surface of activated carbon used as adsorbent in water treatment processes. Activated carbons are porous nature materials with high internal surface which gives them excellent adsorbent properties. This carbon has been prepared from biomass waste, specifically from walnut shells.

The image corresponds to the malted barley used in the elaboration of a craft beer. Plant cell structure can be observed.
The Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) image is of the head of an embryonic Zebrafish. This is a model organism currently being used for studies into the genetic causes of neurodegeneration. This research project involves Kim Wager, a Ph.D. student jointly supervised by Dr Claire Russell (RVC) and Professor Robert Harvey (UCL School of Pharmacy). The Zebrafish was imaged under a FEI Quanta 200F Scanning Electron Microscope. Firstly, the sample was chemically fixed in 4% (w/v) paraformaldehyde in 0.1M Sodium Cacodylate buffer, followed by dehydration in graduated alcohol and drying in a Leica Critical Point (CPD300) dryer. Prior to imaging, the specimen was given a 5nm gold coating in a Quorum Q150 Sputter coater and imaged at 5KV. In addition, a high tilt angle of 65 degrees enhanced the full structure of the head region. A high-resolution digital image was captured, imported into Photoshop and was artistically coloured by Ms Annie Cavanagh.

This image shows a Sub-micron, nano meter sized pre-solar grain, isolated using FIB Qunta 3D-FEG, at the Johnson Space Center NASA. The grain is right under the carbon cap on the very top of the pillar shown in the picture. This sample is from a meteorite and the isolated grain showed, which later on experimentally proved, to be a pre-solar grain. This procedure of isolation made it possible to perform NANO-SIMS analysis and later on preparing a thin X-Section for TEM analysis on this really really precious grain. The study helped towards understanding the formation of stars in our galaxy as well as the origin of our own solar system.
