Image title: SEM Image of Cr Doped MnO2

Image description: Cr-doped MnO2 was synthesized by hydrothermal method. With the doping of Cr the morphology of the pure MnO2 (nanowire) changes to “Urchin” like shape for Cr-doped MnO2. This material is a precursor for the synthesis different Na based cathode material for Na ion battery.

Image Title: Petrified Wood

Image description: SEM Image taken at the Micro Nanotechnology Center, University of Louisville. Petrified wood is fossilized remains of vegetation that has transitions to stone over thousands of years. This particular piece of petrified wood was imaged for the local artist "Matt Weir" who is working on a art exhibition based around this piece of petrified wood. He is trying to show how the same object can be interpreted in many different ways.

Image description: Boron nitride nanosheets (BNNS) and poly(vinyl) alcohol 2wt.% are mixed, ultrasonicated and processed in liquid nitrogen ‘ice templating’ followed by freeze-drying at -40 oC to construct three-dimensional directed assembly composites. The layered morphology along with polymer strands connecting the BNNS sheets is apparent in falsely colored scanning electron microscopy image acquired at EMC.

Image description: Cross section of Nanoporous Niobium thin film (approx. 1 micron of thickness), fabricated after Vacuum Thermal Dealloying Technique from a Magnesium based precursor alloy (at. % Mg75Nb25) via Physical Vapor Deposition. Figure contains three frames in different magnifications indicating both the nanoscale (higher magnification) and the microscale porosity (lower magnification). For the sake of homogeineity, a thin dense layer of Niobium has benn deposited on the top of the nanoporous film.

Image title: We Serve Fresh Nano Rotini!

Image description:The germanium rotini we are serving is made in an electron-beam evaporator. In this high-vacuum environment, germanium is heated up by electrons, evaporated, and deposited slowly onto the ‘plates’. The rotini shape is formed by meticulously maneuvering the 'plate'. The rotini is ~1800 nm long; the thinnest part of the rotini is ~80 nm, which is 1/1000 the size of human hair! Have a ‘small’ bite and let me cook know which flavor you like the best! The nano-rotini is ‘cooked’ and characterized at Micro/Nano Technology Center (MNTC), Kentucky Multi-scale Manufacturing and NanoIntegration Node (KY MMNIN).

Image description: This image of microvilli, located at 75% of the total length of the small intestine in a 21 day old pig, expands knowledge about development and function of the small intestine. Focusing on changes of the microvilli, which are responsible for nutrient absorption and resulting growth, using micrographs produces a visual aid that shows physical changes during critical stages of life. Micrographs provide details of morphological changes during gut development and allows for evaluation of alternate diets or management at specific times (e.g., immediately following birth and/or weaning) to improve gut health and nutrient utilization in pigs.

The lift-out specimen has been prepared via Focused Ion Beam. Figure contains five frames: A High-Angle Annular Dark-Field imaging (HAADF), which is a STEM technique that is highly sensitive to variations in the atomic number of atoms in the sample, as well as four frames with EDSX results of Niobium, retained Magnesium, formed Oxygen and Silicon substrate (as shown from left to right).

Image description: Cr-doped NaxMnO2 was synthesized by conventional solid-state method by annealing the mixture of Cr-doped MnO2 and Na2CO3. This cool and lattice plane resolved image of Cr-doped NaxMnO2 nanowires is an indication of the single-crystallinity of this nanowire. This material is used to study the Na-ion migration through the material using high resolution TEM by applying the electrical bias in the real time.

Image description: This image is the EDS color mapping of silver nanoparticles supported on zeolite Y. Zeolite Y is a porous material consists of SiO2 and Al2O3. In this image, each element is in a different color. Ag nanoparticles with a particle size of 5-10 nm are on the surface of zeolite Y. Silver nanoparticles supported on zeolite Y is a catalyst that can catalyze the oxidation of phenolic structures either with light or heat. Now, this catalyst is used to treat lignin, the second most abundant biomass in the world, to yield valuable chemicals.
