It is Er doped ZnO compound. It was produced by sol-gel method. ZnO is a wide-bandgap semiconductor. As can be seen from the figure, it has hexagonal structure. ZnO has several favorable properties, including good transparency, high electron mobility, wide bandgap strong room-temperature luminescence that used in various applications. And the properties that mentioned above can be improved by adding some kind of dopings Because of these reasons we have tried to produced Er doped ZnO in nanoscale.

Trabecular Rete of Human Oculus

The trabecular rete of human oculus consists of crossing collagen fibers with cells and extracellular matrix on the surface. Also on the surface of the trabeculae we can see round granules (not bacteria) of organic origin. The use of SEM in ophthalmologic microsurgery allows to evaluate the quality of surgical technique. These studies were conducted jointly with Lyubimova T.S. from Scientific Technical Complex “Microsurgery of oculus”.
