This is the surface of a computer microchip magnified by 500X. You can clearly see the different connections of the components of the chip, giving the photo a technological feel to it. This photo was taken using Nomarski Interference Contrast, a photography technique used in science photography that amplifies the contrast in transparent or close to transparent objects.
Some questions tat could be made from this photo are:
- How much does the equipment for this kind of technique cost?
- Can this technology be used to further observe small cellular organisms?
- How else can this technique be used?
