Description

Dust and gas play important roles in the formation of celestial bodies. In order to study more about the dust in space, we do experiments to study the dust samples that might have similar characteristics as those in space. We have been developing methods to get a close look of dust. Such methods includes using of SEM to observe the basic physical characteristic of the dust, creating program assisting image analyzing, optimizing the display of the dust by trying different ways to get an even distribution of dust, etc. Some convenient ways for analysis have been developed. In later research, hopefully we can get a better look of the dust samples and will be able to use such features to study more about the space.
