Tungsten carbide slip gauge blocks C016/2042 Featured 25 Jan 2014 Image

Tungsten carbide slip gauge blocks C016/2042

Tungsten carbide slip gauge blocks. These are used as a standard form of length measurement. They are precision ground (lapped) to a specific thickness and then stacked to create the required length. The instructions inside the lid of the box refer to wringing, the process of placing two or more gauge blocks together so that the ultra-flat surfaces adhere to each other. A series of such wrung blocks will support their own weight. Photographed at the National Physical Laboratory, Teddington, UK

Dragonfly head C018/2394

Dragonfly head. Close-up of the head of a dragonfly (order Odonata), showing its large compound eyes (left and right). Each compound eye is made up of numerous simple eyes called ommatidia. Each ommatidium sends a signal to the fly's brain, which combines the thousands of images to form a mosaic view of the world. The image is not sharp but is excellent at detecting movement
