Science is art

February 1, 2012

Images by PhD students Babak Anasori and Michael Naguib were featured at the “Small & Exquisite” Exhibit of award-winning scanning electron microscopy images displayed in the Mandell Theater Lobby January 9 through 20. The exhibit showcased the artistry captured under the lens of one of several high-powered microscopes in Drexel’s Centralized Research Facilities. A reception with all the researchers behind the images was held on Friday, January 13, 2012.

Photos from the reception




Professor Yury Gogotsi, Professor Michel Barsoum, PhD student Babak Anasori, and PhD student Nina Lane with Babak Anasori’s “MAX Dragon” image. The image shows the fractured surface of a nanocrystalline magnesium matrix composite freinforced with Ti2AlC to form a “dragon.”
