Phoretic Nano-swimmers

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.

Faucet Aerator III

Aerators should be regularly kept cleaned or replaced. The mesh in the aerator can collect lead debris, and then leach this toxic metal into the water passing through it. Aerators cap the ends of most drinking-water faucets. In some cases, they’re used to conserve water by reducing a faucet’s maximum flow rate; in others their primary function is to concentrate the flow of water so that it delivers more pressure and cleaning power. But these little metal cages also collect debris. Including lead. And unless you’re regularly cleaning out those aerators, you might be developing a toxic mini gravel field through which your drinking water must pass before reaching your glass or coffee pot. Indeed, one lead poisoning case in North Carolina involved a child (see link below): www.dcwater.com/waterquality/faqs.cfm

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.

Micropillar with Pt Bridges

A micropillar is provided with lateral contacts in order to generate an in-plane electrical field inside the cavity. The contacts are formed by focused ion beam induced deposition of platinum between a gold layer and the micropillar. The image was colorized (Pt: blue, Au: yellow, micropillar: red).
