Landscapes from the nano world by Michael Oliveri

Michael Oliveri, a digital media professor from the University of Georgia, likes to snap photos, but not with a camera most photographers use. He prefers the scanning electron microscope. In his recent project "Innerspace," he explores the landscapes of nano-scale worlds where objects are up to 1,000 times smaller than the width of a human hair.

The samples in Oliveri’s photos come from University of Georgia materials scientist Zhengwei Pan, who heats metals to vaporize them. The vapours then settle down to form rods, spheres and other shapes, creating an extraordinary landscape.

In these images, the metal used was zinc oxide which was heated at temperature of 500-600 Celsius degree.
