nano eye candy!

rings

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and nanotechnology can sure look spectacular! Ghim Wei Ho, is a Ph.D. student working for Professor Mark Welland, at the University of Cambridge Nanoscale Science Laboratory and has produced some spectacular images of nano-flowers. They are three-dimensional Si composite nanostructures, taken with a scanning electron microscope. Ghim Wei Ho’s Ph.D. project in the Nanoscience Centre involves the fabrication and characterisation of novel nanostructures. In addition to ‘flowers’ Ghim Wei Ho can also grow nanowires, cones, rings etc.

With the recent launch of the NanoVic Prizes for Art and Nanotechnologies I hope this will inspire budding scientists and photographers alike.
