Micro Electrical Mechanical System (MEMS) microchip. Showing the large depth of field possible with our microscope, the popup mountain device is visible raised in comparison to the chip as a whole. This device is powered solely by the electron beam itself, using a technique know as micro charge pump actuation.

Immune surveillance by macrophages and monocytes is important for removing foreign invaders from the body, eliminating dead or damaged cells, and tissue homeostasis. Functional plasticity of macrophages enables them to respond to different stimuli, performing a variety of immune modulatory roles. During tumor development, macrophages are among the first immune cells to migrate into the tumor. Stimuli, including molecules secreted by cancer cells, polarize macrophages into various tumor-associated macrophage subpopulations. Factors secreted by macrophages include immunosuppressive cytokines, inflammatory chemokines, and phagocytosis molecules. Shown here are multiple macrophages (white) associating with a breast cancer cell (red). At the University of New Mexico, we are using nanotechnology to deliver agents that influence immune cells to actively participate in destroying tumor cells.

From December through February, many people experience an itchy, runny nose, sneezing, nasal blockage, excess tearing and itchy eyes.If you experience the above symptoms every year during these months, the chance is great that you have Mountain Cedar allergy. This conditions are mostly caused by this pollen.

The Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) image is of ‘Nano Swimmers’ that are currently being investigated for potential use as novel drug carriers. These coiled structures are 25 microns in length, 5 microns in diameter and 300 nanometres in thickness. They are composed of a polymer with nickel/titanium coating and were fabricated by the Multi-Scale Robotics Laboratory, ETH Zurich and in collaboration with the NanoMedicine Laboratory, UCL School of Pharmacy. The swimmers were imaged under a FEI Quanta 200F Scanning Electron Microscope; firstly, the sample was given a 5nm gold coating in a Quorum Q150 Sputter coater and imaged at 5KV. In addition a tilt angle of 65 degrees enhanced their full structure, high resolution digital images were captured and imported into photoshop, where they were artistically manipulated and coloured by Ms Annie Cavanagh.

These structures are defective capacitors of a Silicon chip. Polysilicon top plates present different gray levels : This is an illustration of Passive Voltage Contrast, the polysilicon top plates are charged up by the primary e-beam and this charge amount is modulated by different capacitor leakage levels.
