Today, I finally produced an image with my DIY scanning electron microscope. I’ve spent the last few months working on this project, and am encouraged by today’s success. There is still a lot of work left to do in making the image higher resolution, and eliminating sources of noise, however this image proves that all parts of the microscope are operating as designed.
I will be showing this project at Maker Faire 2011 in San Mateo. Come see it for yourself in person!
