The rainbow creatures shown here are a species called calcareous nannoplankton. In the past as ocean acidity increased, the skeletons of some species became malformed, other species shrank in size, and others died out altogether. The intelligent design behind the species portrayed here is that it modifies and protects itself with a calcium shell during periods of high CO2 atmospheric content that lead to ocean acidification. Each creature is approximately 2 microns.

Silver clusters deposited by thermal evaporation onto self-assembled polystyrene nano-spheres (900 nm). Inspect F SEM FEG @ Nanofacility Piemonte INRIM. Self-assembled polystyrene nanospheres are used as masks for thin films and materials nanostructuration on large area. Maybe the subject doesn't match the topics of this year, but surely the title fits.

Torilis arvensis is commonly known as Spreading Hedge Parsley. The plants grow up to 3 feet in height with tiny flowers clustered in small flat-topped umbels. T. arvensis fruit (schizocarp) measure 4-6mm and usually hold 2-4 individual seeds (mericarps). The schizocarp is covered with velco-like appendages which attach to clothing and fur allowing them to hitch a ride to new terrain. This sample was air dried, mounted onto an aluminum stub and sputter coated with gold. It was viewed on a Philips XL30 TMP SEM at 20 kV in the EM Lab of the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at UCDavis. The image was colorized using Adobe PhotoShop Elements 2.0 software. The image shows one of the seeds within the schizocarp and affords a better appreciation for their cunning hitch-hiking techniques. Note the various velco-like appendages. The more "thorny" limbs (tan) are found on the schizocarp while the blunt appendages are part of the mericarp. Pollen (yellow) can be seen on the flower surfaces (pink).

The picture was taken after the growth by CVD of silicon nanowires on a copper foil with gold on top. When I saw it I remembered the perturbation caused by sun storms on magnetic field of the earth. These nanowires will be used to manufacture anodes of ion-Li batteries.
