Metal Injected Organic Rich Shale showing the heterogeneity of the connected pore space and transport pathways. Klaver, J., Schmatz, J., Krooss, B., Stockhausen, M., Schwark, L., Urai, J. L., 2016. Porosity and pore connectivity in immature and artificially matured source
Highly magnified image (100,000 times magnification) showing a metal injected carbonate fossil in Posidonia Shale. The bright part is the metal which indicates the connected porosity. Width of the picture is 3 µm, see Klaver et al., (2016, http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.coal.2016.03.003) for
Happy Halloween! Graphite particle in lithium battery electrode was cross-sectioned and imaged using BIB-SEM. Sample with courtesy of Stefan Jaiser, Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT, TVT-TFT). N.B. Pumpkin stem is photo montage.
Cryo-BIB-SEM image of oil-brine filled Lixhe limestone. Oven dried limestone (grey) was saturated with oil (red) and sodium-chlorine brine (blue). The fluid-filled sample was slush-frozen in LN2 and a 2mm² large cross-section was prepared using Broad-Ion-Beam-milling under cryogenic conditions. Subsequently
BIB-SEM/EDS image showing Niobrara Oil Shale. Backscattered electron image with transparent EDS-overlay on BIB-milled surface shows carbonate lenses (purple) in shale matrix (green). The carbonate porosity is filled with organic matter. A twin-sample was injected with molten Wood’s metal, which
