University of British Columbia – Okanagan, Canada

Material: Polystyrene (PS) beads with carbon nanotubes
Image size: The width of the image is 0.055 mm.
NanoArtography 2022 winner

Image description by the scientist/artist:

This image illustrates an assembly of polystyrene (PS) beads and carbon nanotubes (CNTs). The PS beads were synthesized through an emulsion-evaporation process. The PS beads and CNTs were dispersed in deionized water in a bath sonicator and then vacuum-filtered. This technique was used to make a polymer nanocomposite with a segregated structure featuring high electrical conductivity for electromagnetic wave shielding applications.

Material: Copper oxide on copper
Image size: The width of the image is 0.023 mm.
NanoArtography 2022 finalist

Image description by the scientist/artist:

These beautiful nano florets are decorated on the copper surface after oxidation in a caustic solution. Different floral forms in this image (roses, marigolds and grass-like structures) are because of various reaction conditions and reagents used here. These surface textures are crucial for controlling wettability on metal surfaces. After a hydrophobic functionalization, this textured copper oxide surface yields a highly water-repellant surface that has different applications, including in thermal industries. This image shows the combined floral architecture of the copper oxide surface with roses and marigolds at distinct locations within the grass-like structures, creating a majestic garden look.

Material: Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS, which is a silicon elastomer)
Image size: The width of the image is 0.007 mm.
NanoArtography 2022 finalist

Image description by the scientist/artist:

The optical microscopic image represents the meso-structures on a soft PDMS thin film, which resemble the fractal branches of a herb. It originated from the compressive stresses on the soft PDMS thin film. This image proves a point that sometimes the right amount of stress (struggle) can produce beautiful things against a mighty opposition and in unfavorable conditions.

The non-uniform breaking of the MXene film produced sharp edges which looked like mountain peaks. A snowy mountain scene is depicted to symbolize the outstanding accomplishments and contributions of MXenes to many disciplines since its discovery, much like the pioneering climbers who first climbed Mt. Everest.

Cobalt Oxide Web of Neurotransmitters

Kampara Roopa Kishore, SASTRA Deemed University, Thanjavur, Tamilnadu, India

Material: Polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) - cobalt oxide
Image size: The image width is 0.075 mm.
NanoArtography 2020 winner 

Image description by the scientist/artist:

The image shows electrospun biomimetic polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) - cobalt oxide (Co3O4) nanofibers as human brain neurotransmitters. PVA and cobalt (II) chloride hexahydrate were used for the synthesize of PVA-Co3O4 nanofibers by electrospinning technique, which resembles human brain neurons. 

The interconnection of nanofibers looks like the nucleus of a neuron and the elongated nanofiber morphology replicates the axon of the neuron. PVA-Co3O4 nanofibers with a high surface area to volume ratio had many applications in gas sensors, catalysis, fuel cells, and energy storage applications. These PVA-Co3O4 nanofibers had shown good vapor sensing response towards methanol vapor, for the concentration ranging from 21 ppm to 2094 ppm at 350 °C operating temperature. PVA-Co3O4 nanofibers were characterized by a field emission scanning electron microscope.

Autumn leaves of CNTs-September 21_NanoArtography.jpg

Autumn Leaves of Carbon Nanotubes
Juan Luis Fajardo Díaz, San Luis Potosí Institute of Scientific Research and Technology, San Luis Potosí, Mexico.
Material: Carbon nanotubes (CNTs)
Image size: The image width is 0.11 mm.
NanoArtography 2020 Finalist 

Image description by the scientist/artist:

This image illustrates carbon nanotubes (CNTs) formation that resembles a leaves interaction like the fallen leaves of a tree. The combination of colors like dark green, yellow, and red simulating colors of autumn leaves fit very well with the spatial distribution, curved sections, hills, and structure obtained from the CNT. 

These CNTs grew over a Co-Cu thin film in a chemical vapor deposition system. The combination of a sulfonated and oxygenated precursor, temperature variation, reductive atmosphere, and time of synthesis modifies the growth mechanism of Co nanoparticles. It creates very short and thin CNTs that agglomerates and display these peculiar patterns over the sample. This effect is probably associated with a specific decomposition process of the sulfonated and oxygenated precursor and the interaction with Co and Cu catalysts.

NanoArtography 2020 Winner 

Image description by the scientist/artist:

An artist’s impression of the cellular microcosmos. Dive into a galaxy of liquid stars and protein nebulas: 

Protein phase separation constitutes a key process by which life has evolved on Earth. From the origins of Life itself to cellular subcompartmentalization, phase separation of biomolecules has recently been proven essential to our understanding of these processes. In this series, I present an "artist's impression" of phase separation. By using only reagents and chemicals found in the lab, supplemented with proteins from egg white and milk powder, I try to recreate the phenomenal complexity and beauty of this process. We see the formation of liquid droplets, which fuse and mix together creating complex and unanticipated hues and tones. Protein aggregation, notoriously implicated in human disease, is now repurposed to create fantastic nebulas and clouds of precipitated biological matter. Just like our cells, these artworks are dynamic and ever-evolving.

NanoArtography 2020 finalist

Image description by the scientist/artist: A thin and delicate layer of silver nanoparticles has been shaken by ionized gas. This energetic gas strongly interacts with the surface and modifies the fabric of the matter. As a result, the spheres change their shape and slow growth to form sharp structures well distributed on the surface. These poetic flowers spread over the silicon surface like fragile emerald crystals. Here, by using scanning electron microscopy, we discover the beautiful organization of these tiny particles on a purple carpet.

Gabriel Burks, Drexel University, Philadelphia, USA

Material: Poly(vinylidene fluoride) PVDF hedrite agglomerates

Image size: Image width is ~ 0.02 mm (20 µm)

NanoArtography 2016 finalist

Image description: ln homage to the late Tupac Shakur's "The Rose that Grew from Concrete," this image is dedicated to all the beautiful things that manifest as the result of great struggle, tremendous opposition, and less than optimal conditions. This rose garden is for the dreamer that wants to desperately escape from their current plight into a place where anything is possible and where dreams really do come true. I find this theme to be particularly relevant given today's set of current events where underrepresented minorities in the United States of America find themselves at a crossroads between patriotism and civil human rights. It is sad to say that in the 21st century human beings are slain by law enforcement like wild animals, but just as the rose grew from concrete, this situation will also bear a beautiful and inspiring miracle. 
Scientifically speaking, this image is one of colorized Poly(vinylidene fluoride) PVDF hedrite agglomerates viewed under a scanning electron microscope.
