Description

Nanoworld is amazing. These beautiful snowflake-like micro-dendrites are made of Silver and are produced during metal-assisted-chemical-etching of Silicon nanowires (in the background). The image is captured using a scanning electron microscope, a common imaging tool to study nanostructures.
