SEM images

A scanning electron microscope (SEM) is a type of electron microscope that produces images of a sample by scanning it with a focused beam of electrons, which interact with atoms in the sample. this interaction produces various signals that can be detected and that contain information about the sample’s surface topography and composition, allowing us to see these amazing patterns, forms and textures that could have only been imagined before this wonderful technology was invented.
