Description
  • The image channels a flair for the 1960s through "A Groovy PERC-spective" of a percutaneous (PERC) lead. The 316LVM 1x7 strand is coated in a PFA insulation and coiled for use as a component in implantable neurostimulation systems. The sample was prepared for metallographic evaluation by mounting in an epoxy then ground and polished to the mid-plane revealing the coil's cross section. The surface was viewed under Differential Interference Contrast (DIC) which produced the "fab" color scheme. An otherwise "uncool" delay between the image transmitted through the microscope camera to the computer screen combined with a simultaneous adjustment of the sample orientation and magnification resulted in the "far out" multi-layered live image.
