Electron microscopes get their record groove on

Electron microscope photography is cool, and it’s been around for a while, but that doesn’t mean that that they can’t still find cool things to take pictures of. Take a record for example. It’s amazing to look a those little tiny grooves and see how raw and uneven they are, but still able to produce beautiful music. It’s even more amazing when you compare the analog to the digital, and see how clean and uniform a CD is by comparison.

What’s even better is that the microscope can get a side view. Some materials are so reflective that they can’t get a good angled shot on them to show the complete picture. Luckily, due to a record being black it will allow for some amazing shots.
