Microscopy: I found love

In love with a new image from yesterday’s work on the focused ion beam/scanning electron microscope! The sample center looks somewhat like a morel mushroom, with blobs of silicate in a network of iron-rich melt. A particularly cheerful blob can be found in the upper right corner of┬áthe┬áregion of interest.

Love at <500 nm
