Vinyl record grooves under electron microscope

Vinyl record grooves shot under an electron microscope taken by Chris Supranowitz who is a researcher based at the Institute of Optics, University of Rochester.

Here is a shot of a number of record grooves (the dark bits are the top of the grooves, i.e. the uncut vinyl):

The grooves magnified 500x - the little bumps are dust on the record:

And here's a single groove even closer still, magnified 1000 times:
