Nano-Sea Urchin

Growth of zinc oxide based nanostructures using dopants such as gallium in chemical vapor transport processes can result in beautiful and fantastic images such as the one presented here. The high-resolution scanning electron microscopy image permits to distinguish every facet of the nanostructure, observing hexagonal-like cross section, as well as, a modulation of their diameter along the rod stem. Simply fabulous!
