The early uses of Scanning Transmission Ion Microscopy (STIM) with MeV ions are reviewed. The transformation of STIM energy-loss images into maps of areal density is discussed, and is illustrated with images of a fruit fly head (Drosophila melanogaster). Freeze-dried male heads are transparent to 4-MeV protons in the dorsal and frontal directions, but in the sagittal direction the brain is opaque. STIM with molecular ions is shown to be useful for increasing contrast in low density areas. For… CONTINUE READING
