Dear Foundry Community,
As 2019 comes to a close, we want to thank you all for being a part of the Molecular Foundry. We wish all of you a wonderful holiday season and look forward to seeing you again in the new year!
As a special treat, we have put together a printable 2020 calendar using images from our NanoArt Image Contest and it is available as a free download here.
Learn more about the materials featured in our holiday card below!
David Prendergast and the rest of the Foundry Family
- A segment of nanoscale tungsten disulfide (WS2) imaged with a low temperature scanning tunneling microscope. The original image, submitted by Katherine Cochrane, won 4th place Foundry’s choice in the 2019 NanoArt Image Contest
- Magnesium ions solvated (surrounded) by molecules of tetrahydrofuran. The original image was submitted by Artem Baskin to the 2019 NanoArt Image Contest.
- A segment of a spin polarized LEEM (low energy electron microscope) image showing ultra-thin cobalt island on Ru(0001) crystal. The colorized areas highlight magnetic domain structures with various orientations. The original image, submitted by Gong Chen, won 1st place Foundry’s Choice in the 2019 NanoArt Image Contest.
- A segment of solution-borne “nanoPhoenix” crystals of ionic organic semiconductors that act as building blocks for ionic polymers with applications in photothermal therapy and sensors. The original image was generated by Christopher L. Anderson and submitted by Yi Liu to the 2019 NanoArt Image Contest.
- A segment of spontaneously crystallizing organic semiconductors that form fractal patterns. This material can be ink-jet printed into flexible electronics. The original image was generated by Christopher L. Anderson and submitted by Yi Liu to the 2019 NanoArt Image Contest.
