I’ve always had this weird intrigue with looking at things under the scanning electron microscope. They always look so cool and interesting. Probably since they aren’t like anything I have seen before.
It’s like the hidden art in science (and yes, I’m totally geeking out right now).
So I thought I would share some images from the scanning electron microscope for others to see. You probably don’t think its so interesting, but for some reason I’m always really compelled by the images scientists get from them.
Just some information about it: A scanning electron microscope works by scanning the subject with a high energy beam of electrons that interact with the subjects atoms to give information like the topography and composition.
