Electron Optics

Scanning Electron Microscopy

This project is part of Gas Labs.  These are photographs taken using a scanning electron microscope.  This device can magnify up to 300,000 times.  It uses electrons instead of light to capture an image.  The lens is a tunnel of magnets which bend the electrons the same way that glass does in a camera lens, kind of, it's more complicated than that but that's the general idea.
