Cover Image:
Birefringence image of diatom Arachnoidiscus taken with new video-enhanced polarized light polychromatic microscopy technique. The diatom’s silicified cell wall forms a pillbox-like shell (frustule) composed of overlapping halves containing intricate and delicate markings. Brightness corresponds to retardance and color corresponds to the slow axis azimuth. Imaged with an Olympus BX-61 microscope using a 40×/0.75 N.A. objective lens, and consumer Nikon D40 SLR digital camera. Original image courtesy of Michael Shribak (Marine Biological Laboratory, MA). Design by Edward B. Hamel.
