Bacteria (one of them is a bacterium) are very small organisms. Almost all bacteria are so tiny they can only be seen through a microscope. Bacteria are made up of one cell, so they are a kind of unicellular organism.

The NWs were placed horizontally on a Si wafer then with the FEI Helios the Pt protection layer was deposited by E-beam and Ion-beam successively. Subsequently a TEM lamellae was prepared in maual mode (bottom left) and then imaged in STEM mode using the same FEI Helios featuring the core GaAs NW with an AlGaAs Shell (dark region in top and bottom right viewgraphs) and a GaAs outer shell. The work has been done by Dr. Jie Tian and Dr. Michael Gao using the ANFF ACT node dual beam FIB Helios.

The iSP cells were grown on Matrigel ® by Dr. Koei Chin (OHSU). These cells present tumorigenic phenotype by expressing constitutively active form of Her2 oncogene. They were provided by Dr. William Muller (McGill University, Montreal, Quebec). The SEM image was recorded on a FEI Helios 660 Nanolab™ using BSE mode (Magnification: 8000x). Each cell in the image shows a variety of protrusions: lamellipodia and filopodia.

Silver clusters deposited by thermal evaporation onto self-assembled polystyrene nano-spheres (900 nm). Inspect F SEM FEG @ Nanofacility Piemonte INRIM. Self-assembled polystyrene nanospheres are used as masks for thin films and materials nanostructuration on large area. Maybe the subject doesn't match the topics of this year, but surely the title fits.
