This week’s image of the week is taken from a recent paper in Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics from researchers at the University of Hong Kong, Nanjing University of Posts and Telecommunications and the University of Sheffield. The image is a tilted Scanning Electron Micrograph (SEM) of a GaN/InGaN microdisk with radius of 3.5 µm. The authors investigate the effect of strain on the photoluminescent emission of these microstructures, which we can’t help but think resemble “micromushrooms”!
