Stephen Gschmeissner is one of the most prolific and widely published scanning electron microscopists in the UK. To Stephen the excitement of using a scanning electron microscope comes from its ability to bring to life unseen and often-undiscovered aspects of the natural world in a creative way. Stephen says that he never quite knows what he’ll find - “I may be looking at a specimen for one reason, only to find something totally unexpected. For example, when looking at brain cells, the fact that they looked like matchsticks came as a complete surprise”. Stephen creates images as art forms, prepared as much for their visual appeal and impact as the science that they depict.
