A few weeks ago, Marissa had the pleasure of joining Dr. Gerdon at Harvard Medical School for some transmission electron microscopy (TEM) imaging of her gold nanoparticle samples. The TEM instrument is so tall that it could not fit into a single picture. She was able to observe how the samples were prepared and how to observe them to find the size of her samples. Though the instrument is a bit complicated to navigate, Marissa is hopeful to be able to use it more in the future for her upcoming mineralization experiments.
