We created two illustrations for Design Modus to accompany one of their client’s research. It shows the production of gold nanoparticles using a high power green laser and gold particles in a stream of water; and a second close-up of a gold nanoparticle cluster.
We created a cover illustration for Design Modus to accompany one of their client’s research. It shows the assembly of coated nanoparticles into a larger structure, fused together with a laser.
Animation of a quantum computer technique being developed by Hitachi Labs. It follows the basic spin manipulation, and how this can be scaled up to store and process computations, which will eventually form the basis of a functioning quantum computer.
The illustration shows a network combining classical and quantum computers, with distributed users and servers, as one of their research interests is to ease the integration of new quantum computing protocols within an existing framework.
We were recently hired to produce a series of animation clips for Science Photo Library, showing some of the complex nuclear fusion reactions that occur in the Sun, including the CNO cycle at the end. Here is a selection of our favourites! Science Photo Library provides licensing of striking specialist science imagery, with more
Animation of a zoom out from the inside of a single atom to the entire galaxy. The first scene shows a single quark, one of three making up a proton (red) in the nucleus of an atom. The nucleus is surrounded by electron shells (blue). The atom is one making up one of the
Our visualisation of the complex decay chain of a uranium atom has just been chosen as Science Photo Library‘s clip of the week. U-238 is a radioactive element with 92 protons (red), indicated to the lower left of its chemical symbol, and 146 neutrons (yellow), giving it a total atomic mass of 238 (upper left
We were recently hired to produce a series of animation clips for Science Photo Library, showing how various things work. Here are our favourite eight! Clip 1 ) Catalytic converter. It consists of a honeycomb structure, which provides a large surface area. The inside surface is lined with the catalyst, which is a combination
We were recently hired to produce a series of animation clips for Science Photo Library, as part of their educational animation licensing arm (www.sciencephoto.com). Here are our favourite five stock clips! Clip 1 ) Rutherford scattering (gold foil experiment). Animation depicting the actual outcome of Rutherford’s 1909 experiment to probe the structure of an atom.
Six of our clips made it into SPL’s space showreel, including our work on space debris, and some shots of Jupiter/Saturn and their moons! SPL’s space showreel Our stock images at SPL Our stock animations at SPL – part 1 Our stock animations at SPL – part 2
