3D diatoms

Post by Wim van Egmond »

I post a couple of images of marine diatoms I made last year. I had not processed them before. I am still way behind in archiving. The new images are still waiting to be developed. :)

They are cross eye 3d images. I hope they are not too big. In case you have problems to fuse them try a bit more distance from the screen. Now I look at them, I could have removed a bit of the surrounding to make them easier to view.

I think DIC is not that good for stereo images. Darkfield works much nicer. But I show them anyway. The tp one of Coscinodiscus granii is not as good as it should be. This diatom has a irregular shape and it woudl be better to show it from the side. I think I actually have that in my archive. I'll have to look it up.

The bottom one has a threedimensional shape that is incomprehensible when seen through the microscope. It is also a very small diatom. So I was curious what it would actually look like. I think I have to to try to make a better one next time I'll find it. :-)

But I love the stereo function of Zerene!

Both these images fuse very nicely for me giving a great stereo view. The lower one is especially impressive. Great work. 8)
