1. Not sure what this looks like. 

    It is a gold particle under some electron beam resist on a silicon wafer.

     
  2. Nylon Stockings under the SEM.

     
  3. 3 micron lapping film (8000 grit sandpaper) under the SEM.  The “swarf” from honing a razor blade is clearly visible as sub-micron shavings of steel.

     
  4. small, but happy.

    World’s smallest solid gold happy face.

     
  5. A staple through paper.

     
  6. Wood in the SEM.  Toona Mahogany (Toona Ciliata)

     
  7. A set of images of a manganese oxide corrosion film at progressively lower voltage.  One example of why I use low voltage (1kV) most of the time. 

     
  8. Copper traces on a circuit board, plated with lead-tin solder.  In the backscattered electron contrast, the bright flower-like patterns are lead.

     
  9. Fusion razor blade; with teflon coating; FIB cross-sectioned.

     
  10. A TEM sample prepared by lift-out and FIB.  The 1 micron-sized particle of interest was located on the filter paper, coated with osmium and platinum, lifted out with the nanomanipulator and then thinned for TEM analysis.
