OIST logos on Sugar

Toshio Sasaki, who works in the Biology Resources Section at OIST, used a Focused Ion Beam/Scanning Electron Microscope to carve a series of OIST logos onto a grain of sugar and then image them. The top image shows the carved sugar grain near other sugar grains for scale. The bottom image shows a close up of the logos. The largest logo is 200 micrometers wide, and the smallest is 12.5 micrometers wide.
