2018 NUANCE Image Contest

"The Art of Science"

The NUANCE Center’s Cook Hall acts as a scientist’s laboratory and an artist’s studio. Innovative research produces images that communicate scientific discoveries as well as compelling designs. At NUANCE we understand that nanoscale research often yields awe-inspiring images that grant access into a potentially unfamiliar sub-microscopic world. We want to extend a glimpse of our student and staff researchers’ perspectives on this world to those connected, directly or indirectly, to nanotechnology fields through NUANCE’s annual scientific image contest. The NUANCE "Art of Science” image contest commemorates and unveils the talented persons behind the instrument and the aesthetics emerging beyond the science.
