SEM imaging of a Peregrine Falcon Feather
This month's Under the Microscope winning suggestion is... A Peregrine Falcon Feather!! That's right we are examining a feather of the fastest animal in the world! The feather was donated to us by Michele Pattison, of the University of Nottingham Energy Institute (who also suggested the idea), and it originates from Belper in Derbyshire. SEM imaging was conducted on a Thermo Scientific Phenom XL and the main image was created by capturing 150 individual images and stitching them together to form a mosaic-style image.
