    Exhibition from December 14, 2018 through March 15, 2019. By looking at materials under a microscope, scientists can understand how things work at very small scales and even at the atomic level. Sometimes, researchers see a scientific image that resembles a piece of art or has a beautiful feature. These images are often captured using electron microscopes and are in gray-scale. Scientists will then colorize the images using photo editing software to emphasize the unique features captured at the nanoscale. All of the images in this exhibition are from the A. J. Drexel Nanomaterials Institute NanoArtography Competition (established in 2016 by Babak Anasori, PhD) an international competition which helps broaden the public’s understanding of the world at the atomic level and brings attention to Drexel’s groundbreaking materials science research.
