Yellow Pepper and the Nanopaprika - message from Professor Steffen B. Petersen

As a member of the TINC community I found it appropiate to upload a couple of nice looking images of the pepper fruit (from which paprika is propduced). The images have been produced with laser scanning confocal microscopy, and we believe that the rseolution is about 500 nm. No chromophores were added in order to
achieve this multi-colored image. The images are also posted on my page on Nanopaprika.

I understand that paprika is a matter of national pride in Hungary. We were delighted about the image quality of the yellow pepper peel.

Best Regards

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
