Bismuth oxide particles for additive of glassware embedded in resin were prepared by the NB5000 FIB system, in which SEM images of its milled surface were observed by FE-SEM equipped with NB5000 and its surface was continuously milled using the "Mill&Monitor" function. Serially milled images (about 200 SEM images) were reconstructed by the Avizo. This tomogram looks like asteroids floating in space, "Nano Universe".
