SEM Image Competition 2022

(Concluded on July 31, 2022; results published October 21, 2022.) Nanoscience Instruments welcomes you to our electron micrography contest: a platform to encourage creativity in scanning electron microscopy. Whether it be the granular rubble found in magnified exotic salts or the probing mandibles of an ant under a microscope, no limits exist for image content; we advocate striving for inspired visions through technical proficiency. You may ask yourself: which electron detector is best suited for this sample? How can the microscope’s parameters be optimized? What sort of structures can be revealed? What story does this image tell? Take this chance to share your most compelling and beautiful SEM images!

For more detailed information, the complete guidelines are supplied in the PDF further below.

Happy scanning!
