The beachgoers flee as hulking monsters climb from the dark water…
This is a scanning electron microscope image of some various-sized pillars that appeared on one of my samples during a plasma etching test. They’re made of semiconductor, and the bright plain beneath is silicon. Showing through the dark hole in the silicon is a base layer of smooth glass. None of the semiconductor pillars, little guys or monsters, are supposed to have been there - the plasma was supposed to scour the silicon clean, and instead this scene emerged. Fortunately, the next sample was a lot more drama-free.
