See Your Foods Under 30,000 Times of Magnification

San Francisco-based photographer Caren Alpert has adopted a technique called  scanning electron microscope (SEM) to look really really closely at what we eat. The microscope uses a beam of electrons to magnify a specimen up to 500,000 times of its actual size. It has been used in the laboratory to examine semiconductor materials, biological samples, crime lab evidence investigation, etc. Now, Alpert has just come up with another function.
