For my SEM imaging, I chose to a piece of twig to scan. At first, I was a bit worried that my “thing” was too boring. This was what it looked like at a recognizable scale. It looked like a monochromatic hot pocket.
Here was a side view of the twig, where I tore it off when snapping the piece from the rest of the twig. Looking at the twig zoomed in and seeing its chaotic fibers was actually really surprising, since I really took for granted what kind of chaos and entropy I could cause as a human onto these small objects.
This was another side view of one of the veins inside the branch. The structure and repeated pattern of the pores was really interesting to me.
