Microscopy photos on display at NDSU

The President’s Gallery in Old Main at NDSU is now showing a special display of highly detailed photographs taken at NDSU’s Electron Microscopy Center. The 10 photos take the viewer face-to-face with such creatures as a mosquito, beetle and jumping spider.

Four of the photos are in 3-D, allowing visitors to use 3-D glasses to see incredible images of a plant bug and a bacterial biofilm.

The Electron Microscopy Center houses equipment valued at nearly $5 million that can magnify the tiniest objects up to 1.5 million times. Since 1988, the center has been housed in the USDA Northern Crop Science Laboratory, occupying a 3,500-square foot wing designed specifically for electron microscopy.

NDSU is recognized as one of the nation's top 108 public and private universities by the Carnegie Commission on Higher Education.
