Black and white laboratory photography by scientist Meagan Ankney captures every-day research scenes with an eye for appreciating the objects essential to our research.
This is the sample wheel of a Thermal Ionization Mass Spectrometer (TIMS) instrument which allows scientists to measure tiny quantities of metals, in this case for geologic samples. The elements are ionized and this ion beam is separated by isotope mass to determine the age of the sample or identify key geological processes that happened during its history.
The scene comes on a 12x12 inch canvas wrap with white sides and is perfect for tiling 2 to 5 of these on a single wall.
