Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM) image, modified with scientific image analysis software ImageJ. The original micrograph is of a sample of molybdenum trioxide (MoO3) crystals and impurities on a holey carbon grid, taken at 120keV accelerating voltage and 37,500x magnification. The image was taken on a Philips EM420 TEM in the Materials Science Department.
The 2009 Art of Science Competition was made possible by Student Affairs, the Art Committee, and Robert and Esther Metzner.
