At last, the amusement park of the nano scale was established.
This image is an example of observing the carbon nano-tube that the utilization to electron source of the flat displays panel and hydrogen storage elements of the fuel cell, etc., was observed by an in-lens FE-SEM. By using the focal depth expansion function, the aspect of the carbon nano-tubes with which intricately intertwine is observed clearly.
Someday in the near future, you might zoom out a visitor at this park.
