Caption: Scanning electron microscope image of paper used to print the U.S.100 dollar bill. Notice the fibers in the paper. The bills also have a lenticular array, or micro-lens, which shows a different colour when the viewing angle of the bill is changed. This is just one of the security (anti-counterfeit) features of the United States 100 dollar bill, others include: micro-print, watermarks, lenticular images, special inks, fluorescent fibers and strips, coloured fibers, and the use of full coloured inks. Magnification is 250x when printed 10 cm wide.
