Glowing Glass

Glowing Glass by Philip Kalisman This is a fluorescence microscope image, where the sample is illuminated with UV/blue light which is filtered out before the detector. The areas which are glowing red and green are photo-luminescent particles which emit red or green light when they absorb blue light. These glowing regions are on the order of tens of microns (less than 1/1,000th of an inch) This image shows that areas where the material is still emissive after having been subjected to extreme processing conditions. The emissive materials embedded in glass gives the impression of an eerie foreign landscape.
