World's Smallest Flat Art

Nanotechnology Images - World's Smallest Flat Art Nanotechnology Images - World's Smallest Flat Art

Artist J'Sha has teamed with ARmark (TM) Authentication Technologies to unveil what is believed to be the world's smallest pieces of flat artwork. At a mere 100 microns (1/10 of a millimeter) tall with features smaller than 1 micron, Nano Light and Finding Nano are smaller than a speck of dust and 1/8th the width of a strand of hair.

Nanoparticle Formation

Nanotechnology Images - Nanoparticle Formation, Nano Saunders

This image represents nanoparticle formation in a TiCl4 combustion simulation. Spot sizes and color on the heated-object scale represent the mean diameter of particles at a given point in space, while the diversity of sizes of these spots in a given area relates to the standard deviation of spot sizes.

Here we see a representation of nanoparticle quantities at a point for six different sizes of nanoparticles, each represented by a concentric ring in a target glyph. Six perceptually-equiluminant colorscales have been used to show counts of particles of sizes 1,2,4,8,16,and 32 nanometers, each count linked sequentially to rings of the target glyphs from center outward. Brighter rings contain more particles of a given size.

Nanoarte

Nanotechnology Nanoarte Image

Nanoarte is an art project produced by Paperkut in collaboration with the Physics Department at the Politecnico di Torino. The first results of this collaboration are two microlithographic artworks.

'Beyond Hecules Columns' and 'Actual Size' See details here >>

 

These microlithic artworks are the first steps of a bigger project that will realise works in the nanoscale.
