Home > Press > FEI Launches 2014 Image Contest: Stunning Flower Image Wins the 2013 Grand Prize

This SEM image shows an Acacia dealbata (yellow mimosa) flower about to open. The flower is about 4.5 mm across. The image demonstrates the very large depth of field possible with an electron microscope. The flower was removed from the tree and put into the microscope in a fresh state, and the image was taken as soon as possible to avoid structural damage. All electron microscope images are gray scale (black and white), so false color was added to this image using an image processing program.
