Image of a dentine sample acquired using a scanning electron microscope. It shows the dentinal tubules viewed after demineralization using etching with 37% phosphoric acid for 15 seconds and 10% sodium hypochlorite for 1 minute. The colors were obtained by mixing the signals of secondary and backscattered electrons. The mixing is performed using the software FEI Company.

Bacteriophage T4 Virus

False-coloured image of T4 bacteriophage incubated with a de novo-designed self assembling peptide fibre (SAF). Small peptides, 28 amino acids long, self assemble to form fibres ~80 nm wide and ~40 microns long. The T4 tail striation distance was being used as a high-resolution calibrant to register the lateral striations of the fibre.
