a — SEM

I really wanted to see what a smooth and transparent object would look under the SEM. After initially viewing my sample under the SEM, even though there was the expectation of seeing Something, I was still surprised by how much variation was present on the smooth plastic surface. The most interesting phenomenon I was multitudes of small cylindrical nubs sticking out of the surface, at the 500nm scale. I wonder how they interact with light and affect the appearance of the googly eye, as well as how they originate. In addition, in the final zoom-out, I was intrigued by the possibilities for creating abstract compositions using micrography.
