Magnetic Pollen Particles

Magnetic Pollen Particles

Scanning electron microscope images show a pollen particle (left) that has been coated with iron oxide and a replica of the same particle (right) after firing at 600 degrees Celsius to remove the organic material and crystallize the iron oxide. Arrows point to features that were preserved by the process. (Image courtesy of Brandon Goodwin and Ken Sandhage)
