April is the season of cherry blossoms!

The cherry blossoms are blooming again in the University of Science and Technology of China

Follow CIQTEK to detect the hidden beauty of cherry blossoms!


The "Avenue of Cherry Blossoms" on campus is the highlight of the year, with over a hundred cherry blossoms in full bloom! These cherry blossoms are late blooming, with large and dense petals, gorgeous and radiant.

What you may not know is that even cherry blossom pollen is gorgeous!


Professor Hongmin Zhou from the Physical and Chemical Science Experiment Center of the University of Science and Technology of China used the CIQTEK tungsten filament scanning electron microscope SEM3100 to observe and study cherry blossom pollen, presenting us with the hidden beauty of sakura!

With the CIQTEK SEM's high resolution, large field of view, large depth of field, and its optical navigation and perfect automatic functions, we can quickly and clearly observe the appearance of pollen morphology.


Cherry pollen grains are spherical-oblong, with three pore grooves (without treated pollen, the pores are not obvious), the grooves are as long as the poles, and the outer wall is striated and decorated.
