Yersinia unleashed

The black plague is caused by the pathogen, Yersinia pestis. It only takes one Yersinia bacterium to cause an infection, which is deadly if not treated promptly. Immune cells (macrophages - purple/teal) were infected with Yersinia pestis (bright green), fixed, critically point dried, sputter coated with platinum, and imaged.

Hybrid inorganic/polymer based photovoltaic nanodevices offer the promise of low cost large area conversion of solar energy to electricity. Nanostructures of zinc oxide have shown supreme capabilities in emerging technologies ranging from solar energy harvesting to biosensing. However, the ability to control the size and position of these nanostructures is crucial for fabricating nanodevices with remarkable properties and astonishing solar energy conversion efficiencies. Herein, we present a collection of scanning electron micrographs of zinc oxide nanostructures prepared by low temperature hydrothermal methods Image taken and Processed by Luisa Whittaker PhD.
