Awards for electron micrographs:

 

5 Jul 2017   

First prize in the Electron Microscopy - Materials Science category of the Royal Microscopical Society Scientific Imaging Competition for an entry entitled "Shaped electron wavefunction".

The image shows the zeroth order diffracted intensity of a structured electron beam generated using a focused-ion-beam-prepared holographic aperture comprising a superposition of two Laguerre-Gaussian states with quantum numbers L and p of (4,4) and (-4,2), respectively.

5 Oct 2004   

First Prize in the "Science as Art" category in the Daily Telegraph Visions of Science competition, for a micrograph entitled "Magnetic field changes in a thin cobalt film".

The colors in the image show the different directions of the magnetic field in a layer of polycrystalline cobalt that has a thickness of 20nm.The field of view is approximately 200 Ám.The image was acquired using the Fresnel mode of Lorentz microscopy in a Philips CM200 field emission gun transmission electron microscope.It was converted to a color induction map by applying the Transport of Intensity Equation to the image intensity.

Acknowledgments: Anke Husmann (Toshiba Cambridge Research Laboratory), Molly McCartney, Chris Boothroyd.

5 Oct 2004   

First Prize in the "Science Close-Up" category in the Daily Telegraph Visions of Science competition, for a micrograph entitled "The magnetic field of an iron crystal inside a carbon nanotube".

The image shows a multi-walled carbon nanotube, approximately 190nm in diameter, containing a 35-nm-diameter iron crystal encapsulated inside it.Electron holography has been used to obtain a map of the magnetic field surrounding the iron particle, at a spatial resolution of approximately 5nm.The magnetic phase contours show that the particle contains a single magnetic domain.An external magnetic field could be applied to such particles to exert a torque on the surrounding nanotube.

Acknowledgments: Takeshi Kasama, Krzysztof Koziol, Alan Windle.

17 Sep 2002   

Highly commended entry in the "Science Close-Up" category in the 2002 Daily Telegraph Visions of Science competition, for a micrograph entitled "Magnetic rock".

The image shows the magnetic microstructure in a natural, finely exsolved intergrowth of magnetite blocks in an ulvospinel matrix,which is influenced both by the shapes of the individual magnetite blocks and by magnetostatic interactions between them.Different colours correspond to different directions of magnetic induction in the sample.

18 Sep 2001   

Highly commended entry in the "Science Close-Up" category in the 2001 Daily Telegraph Visions of Science competition, for a micrograph entitled "Magnetic field lines in a bacterial cell".

The image on the right shows the magnetic field lines in a single bacterial cell.The fine white lines are the magnetic field lines in the cell, which were measured using off-axis electron holography.Such bacteria live in sediments and bodies of water, and move parallel to geomagnetic field lines as a result of the torque exerted on their magnetosome chains by the earth's magnetic field.

Acknowledgments: Richard Frankel, Mihaly Posfai, Peter Buseck.

18 Sep 2001   

Highly commended entry in the "Science Close-Up" category in the 2001 Daily Telegraph Visions of Science competition, for a micrograph entitled "Crystal in carbon nanotube".

The image on the right shows a surface plot created from a focal series of high-resolution images of a single walled carbon nanotube that contains a single crystal of potassium iodide three atoms wide.The sharp peaks show the regular arrangement of the atoms in the crystal.
