Nanoplankton Calcareous Nannoplankton

The rainbow creatures shown here are a species called calcareous nannoplankton. In the past as ocean acidity increased, the skeletons of some species became malformed, other species shrank in size, and others died out altogether. The intelligent design behind the species portrayed here is that it modifies and protects itself with a calcium shell during periods of high CO2 atmospheric content that lead to ocean acidification. Each creature is approximately 2 microns.

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.

Micro-Crystal Eruption

In this SEM image, Organic crystals which have been grown from an inorganic semiconductor substrate. Using the Mirror Detector (MD) in the Verios, we were able to see a large contrast between these materials. This sample is uncoated and imaging was performed in high vacuum mode using a low accelerating voltage to avoid charging artefacts. False colouring was applied using Photoshop.
