Images taken with scanning electron microscopes


Science author Brandon Broll, living in London, has taken a lot of images on insects, household things, human physique parts and so on. These photos are captured using a selection of conventional light-primarily based microscopes, strong scanning electron microscopes and transmission electro microscopes. All of them will be introduced in the book titled “Microcosmos”. Published by Firefly Books later this month, “Microcosmos” requires readers to a great globe of intense close-up pictures. They are enlarged from 22 instances to 22 million times. The book consists of six sections including Zoology, The Human Physique, Botanics, Minerals, Technologies and Micro-organisms.
