MINERAL THIN SECTION UNDER POLARIZED LIGHT MICROSCOPY
Part of my love of my old laboratory days were fluorescent microscopy, which I did thousands of times, and electron microscopy, which I got to see a lot of photos of though I never did the work. I even liked regular old fashioned microscopy..
There's an old thread I started, and I remember that farmer posted on, involving art and microscopy and similar modes. I'll see if I can find a link because of the similar interests.
That first photo reminds me of something arty too..
The first image reminds me very much of something, too -- I think it may be from a book of early (e.g., pre-Stalin) Soviet art that's around the house somewhere....
interesting, i saw some soviet block cartoons from the late 50's early 60's that have similar art styles
I love this honorable mention:
Water droplets ejected from a vibrating glass nozzle (200x)
Flow pattern in draining soap film (10x)
Found it - here's a related link -
The photos are gone but the contributers and probably the links are still there and the science art connection is still worth talking about.
I absolutely love this stuff!
