Growth of gold nanocrystals within DNA extracted from salmon sperm, by Ljiljana Fruk. Click on the image to see full size version.

Interalia Magazine sent out a call to artists and scientists for images of their work that 'aesthetically represent the dynamics of microscopic & molecular processes'.

Some of the best images, assessed in terms of their aesthetic impact and scientific content, are by members of this department Florian Ströhl, Ljiljana Fruk and Craig Russell.

Dr Ljiljana Fruk joined this department last year as a lecturer in bionanoengineering. Her group is working on design of hybrid materials for nanomedicine, development of light triggered chemistry and nanoparticle synthesis.

Florian Ströhl and Craig Russell are bio-photonics PhD students in this department, working in the Laser Analytics group.

Growth of titanium dioxide nanorods, which can be used in photocatalysis. The second stage of rod formation, just after the formation of initial seeds is captured by electron microscopy. Ljiljana Fruk

The synthesis from RNA to molecule of individual beta-actin proteins in real time inside the axon of a developing neuron. Each colour represents hereby a different time-point during acquisition by Florian Stroehl

A static representation of fluorescent nano-beads tumbling and diffusing through the focal plane of my light sheet microscope. Each frame of the video was colour coded and the video was then summed to create this single image by Craig Russell
