The micrograph is a Scanning Electron Microscope(SEM) image of a micron sized temple prepared with a Focused Ion Beam(FIB) system.
In the FIB system, a micron-sized Silicon wafer was picked up with the micro-sampling method and mounted on a needle stub of a specimen rotation holder. The posts were also fabricated using FIB by rotating the specimen.

At 64th photo contest hosted by the Japanese Society of Microscopy in 2008.


Specimen: Single crystal Silicon
Instrument: Focused Ion & Electron Beam System nanoDUE'T NB5000
Magnification : ×2,000
Accelerating voltage: 5 kV
