ESEM - Calcium sulfphate dihydrate.

The hydration of calcium sulphate hemihydrate (CaSO4.0,5H2O) leads to gypsum (calcium sulphate dihydrate – CaSO4.2H2O). It is a highly exothermic reaction which occurs by a dissolution/reprecipitation mechanism: when the hemihydrate is mixed with water, a fraction of it dissolves to give a saturated solution with respect to Ca2+ and SO4 2- ions, which is supersaturated with respect to calcium sulfphate dihydrate leading to nucleation and crystal growth. ESEM images taken from the hemihydrate hydration process. One can follow water adsorption to the hemihydrate at a 100% RH and the resulting needle-like crystals which result after water elimination.

Ring of Plasmonics

The image shows a special plasmonic structure. On top of a gold layer a larger ellipse was created with electron beam lithography and ion beam etching. Subsequently, an additional gold layer was deposited. In the deeper ellipse structure eight smaller plasmonic ring structures were milled with the FEI Helios 650. The outer ellipse structure should enhance the signal of the smaller plasmonic ring structures.
