nanoflights  -  Movies of microstructures, out of a Scanning electron microscope (SEM)

  1. Opening Celebration of Yadegar Asisi`s newest panorama, a composed image in the size of 32x110 meter at Leipzig Panometer, showing "Carola`s Garden".
    The newest panorama of Yadegar Asisi can be visitied since January, 26th, 2019.

    After being associated for more than two years with this project, Stefan Diller - Scientific Photography, Wuerzburg contributed the FE-SEM raw data of the honeybee and the chamomile flower. Due to the necessary print size of these two images (about 32 meters high and 28 meters wide), this was no longer possible with normal optical recording and stacking techniques but only with the scanning electron microscope, a TESCAN MIRA3 FE-REM, with Pointelectronic's external DISS5 multi-detector scanning system.
    The images were composed of 51 and 25 individual 8000x8000px large 4-channel scans. The single stitching images had been calculated by eight to maximum twenty Z slices of ca. 900 micron depth each due to the necessary overall sharpness of both images.
    In total, about 1 terabyte of image data was generated for each specimen. The total scanning time in the SEM was about 1100 hours (three different scans for each specimen were necessary because of the different viewpoints in the panorama: floor, ca. 8 meters and ca. 18 meters in height).
    The honeybee sitting on the chamomilla flower is probably the largest printed image derived from scanning electron microscopy data up to date ...
    A technically very complex project that in the end had been presented perfectly on the Panometer rotunda walls...
