Today’s featured image shows a low-magnification SEM view of the cone 8 reduction cooled sample we introduced two weeks ago.  If you compare today’s image with the camera image from that post, you should be able to see that the brighter red patches in the camera image correspond to the more highly textured parts of today’s SEM image.  In upcoming posts we’ll show higher magnification SEM images to examine their detailed structure!
