Micropillar with Pt Bridges

A micropillar is provided with lateral contacts in order to generate an in-plane electrical field inside the cavity. The contacts are formed by focused ion beam induced deposition of platinum between a gold layer and the micropillar. The image was colorized (Pt: blue, Au: yellow, micropillar: red).

The Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) image is of the head of an embryonic Zebrafish. This is a model organism currently being used for studies into the genetic causes of neurodegeneration. This research project involves Kim Wager, a Ph.D. student jointly supervised by Dr Claire Russell (RVC) and Professor Robert Harvey (UCL School of Pharmacy). The Zebrafish was imaged under a FEI Quanta 200F Scanning Electron Microscope. Firstly, the sample was chemically fixed in 4% (w/v) paraformaldehyde in 0.1M Sodium Cacodylate buffer, followed by dehydration in graduated alcohol and drying in a Leica Critical Point (CPD300) dryer. Prior to imaging, the specimen was given a 5nm gold coating in a Quorum Q150 Sputter coater and imaged at 5KV. In addition, a high tilt angle of 65 degrees enhanced the full structure of the head region. A high-resolution digital image was captured, imported into Photoshop and was artistically coloured by Ms Annie Cavanagh.

Hydroxyapatite is a form of calcium phosphate that has a large number of applications such as bone implants, and drug delivery systems. For each application, the use of calcium based materials is optimized by specifying their geometry, dimension, density, pore size, mechanical strength, purity, and chemical phase.

Neuron on DNA Surface

This is an embryonic nerve cell growing on DNA. In this system DNA is being studied as a tool to dynamically control surface adhesion for cells. Changing the cell behavior at different time intervals allows us to recreate the dynamic growth sequences that occur naturally in regenerating animals like newts.
