Inner Quartz Plasma Tube

Particles were found on the wafer surfaces inline after a plasma was generated through this quartz tube. I cracked open the tube and found how the plasma was etching into the quartz, revealing these structures that would eventually thin enough to break off and land on the wafer.

Onion Cells

In the picture you can see the cells of a layer onion. The image was taken in a scanning electron microscope at low pressure (ESEM mode), so that it was not necessary to perform a drying and coating of the sample prior to viewing.

Presolar Grain

This image shows a Sub-micron, nano meter sized pre-solar grain, isolated using FIB Qunta 3D-FEG, at the Johnson Space Center NASA. The grain is right under the carbon cap on the very top of the pillar shown in the picture. This sample is from a meteorite and the isolated grain showed, which later on experimentally proved, to be a pre-solar grain. This procedure of isolation made it possible to perform NANO-SIMS analysis and later on preparing a thin X-Section for TEM analysis on this really really precious grain. The study helped towards understanding the formation of stars in our galaxy as well as the origin of our own solar system.

particles and plates

Hydrothermally synthesized BaFeSi4O10 crystals of varying sizes. We are interested in the hydrothermal chemistry of BaFeSi4O10 both for what insights this method can provide into the geological formation of gillespite, the mineral form of BaFeSi4O1O, and as a potential route for making novel hybrid materials with other metals.

Dendritic cell

False-colored SEM image of a migrating mouse dendritic cell (5.2 µm), showing membrane projections known as lamellipodia (green). Dendritic cells are sentinels of the immune system that are posted in peripheral tissues, ingest intruders and then migrate to the lymphoid organs. There, they expose some of their digested protein fragments (antigens) using their cell membrane as a showcase, report on the intruder and interact with- and instruct effector immune cells known as T-lymphocytes.
