Crystals of dyes adsorbed on the surface of a biopolymer after a process of water purification. One of the most common and undesirable contaminants in the wastewater are the dyes. They are highly visible, stable and difficult to biodegrade. For removal of such contaminants are commonly used adsorption techniques.

The glomerular basement membrane (GBM) of the kidney is the basal lamina layer of the glomerulus. The glomerular capillary endothelial cells, the GBM and the filtration slits between the podocytes perform the filtration function of the glomerulus, separating the blood in the capillaries from the filtrate that forms in Bowman's capsule. The GBM is a fusion of the endothelial cell and podocyte basal laminas.

Household incandescent lamps use Tungsten filament because of their electrical and mechanical properties. Tungsten has strength, ductility and workability, tungsten can readily be formed into the filament coils use in bulbs.

The captions shows the dramatic encounter, in the liver, of our unsung heroes, the immune cells, and an invading parasite, the trypanosome. Each side bears an impressive arsenal of chemical weapons that will define at the end the unset, or not, of the Sleeping Sickness.

Surface of a platinum aperture, imaged at 2kV with the DBS detector to reveal the grains with strong material contrast. Taken with Helios NanoLab DualBeam.
The image shows a 10*10, 1.5mm long, 400 micron pitch Utah Neural Wireless Electrode array for communicating with individual neurons from the brain. The substrate consists of machined crisscross channels which are 500 μm deep, filled with glass frits (insulator between each electrode), with backside metallization (not visible in the picture) using microfabricaion techniques for integration with the electronics. The frontside of the array is machined into 100 electrodes on a wafer level followed by acid etching of the columns to form pointed needles with fine surface texture. The tips of all the electrodes are coated with Iridium oxide in order to communicate with neurons during the stimulation and recording from the brain.

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
At the center of the image is a stoma, is circular and is part of the skin of the leaves; their function is to allow breathing with the cells of the plant. Several trichomes are also observed, these are epidermal hairs that serve to protect, absorb or secrete substances.

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.

Nanoindent on deformed copper imaged with channeling contrast. Nanoindentation is a tool to measure the hardness very localised at a low force. Therefore surface defects such as scratches or, as can be seen here, the oxide layer might have an influence on the measurement.

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.
