Micro-Crystal Eruption

In this SEM image, Organic crystals which have been grown from an inorganic semiconductor substrate. Using the Mirror Detector (MD) in the Verios, we were able to see a large contrast between these materials. This sample is uncoated and imaging was performed in high vacuum mode using a low accelerating voltage to avoid charging artefacts. False colouring was applied using Photoshop.
