Zoom Into A Microchip

Zoom Into A Microchip

The inside of a microchip is a mysterious thing. Here, we zoom into a microchip using a digital SLR camera then we transition to a scanning electron microscope, aka SEM. Although this is an older microchip, many of the same principles still apply to microchip design but with much, much smaller structures measured in nanometers instead of microns. - [filed under: science]
