AMAZING ELECTRON MICROSCOPE SHOTS






The inventor of the electron microscope , Ernst Ruska, combined an academic career

 in physics and electrical engineering with work in private industry at several ofGermany's 

top electrical corporations. He was associated with the Siemens Company from 1937 to 1955, 

where he helped mass produce the electron microscope , the invention for which he was awarded 

the 1986 Nobel Prize in physics. The Nobel Prize Committee called Ruska's electron microscope 

one of the most important inventions of the twentieth century. The benefits of electron microscopy 

to the field of microbiology and medicine allow scientists to study such structures as viruses 

and protein molecules. Technical fields such as electronics have also found new uses for Ruska's 

invention: improved versions of the electron microscope became instrumental in the fabrication of computer chips.

Amazing Scanning Electron Microscope Pictures

All these pictures are from the book ' Microcosmos', created by Brandon Brill from London.

 This book includes many scanning electron microscope (SEM) images of insects, human body parts

 and household items. These are the most amazing images of what is too small to see with the naked eye.

01 — A wood or heathland Ant, Formica fusca, holding a microchip

 

02 — The surface of an Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory silicon microchip

 

03 — Eyelash hairs growing from the surface of human skin

 

04 — The surface of a strawberry

 

05 — Bacteria on the surface of a human tongue

 

06 — Human sperm (spermatozoa), the male sex cells

 

07 — The nylon hooks and loops of velcro

 

08 — Household dust which includes long hairs such as cat fur, twisted synthetic and woolen fibers,

 serrated insect scales, a pollen grain, plant and insect remains

 

09 —The weave of a nylon stocking

 

10 — The end of the tongue (proboscis) of a hummingbird hawkmoth

 

11 — The head of a mosquito

 

12 — A human head louse clinging to a hair

 

13 — The eight eyes (two groups of four) on the head of a Mexican red-kneed tarantula

 

14 — Cut hairs and shaving foam between two razor blades

 

15 — Cigarette paper

 

16 — The corroded surface of a rusty metal nail

 

17 — The head of a Romanesco cauliflower

 

18 — The fungus Aspergillus fumigatus

 

19 — Mushrooms spores

 

20 — A clutch of unidentified butterfly eggs on a raspberry plant

 

21 — Fimbriae of a Fallopian tube

 

 22 — A daisy bud

 

23 — Calcium phosphate crystal

 

 24 — The shell of a Foraminiferan
