Best Image Contest "Art in Science"

The Best Image Contest Winners are:

1st PlaceThomas Schlothauer, Freiberg (DE)
“Jellyfish-shaped jetting structures at 6.2 Megabar”
For the shock behavior of porous substances jetting processes plays an important role. Under strictly avoiding of adiabatic decompression, it is possible to preserve these interesting structures without any indications of melting. This includes also pressures in the higher Megabar-range as shown in the EBSD-picture on the example of porous copper. The lacking of cast structures as a typical melting indicator opens new questions for the melting curve of copper. Because this extreme conditions concerning the time of high-pressure-synthesis itself (e.g. nucleation) the problem of the p-T-conditions is also not jet solved.
2nd Place

Tetsuo Irifune, Matsuyama (JP)
“Nano-polycrystalline diamond anvils”
Nano-polycrystalline diamond cubes for Kawai-type apparatus, produced at Geodynamics Research Center of Ehime University, are now used for experiments under the Mbar regime.

 

 

3rd PlaceChristopher Ridley, Edinburgh (GB)
“Lobster-eye”
3D laser sintered bi-radial collimator for neutron diffraction studies from diamond anvil cell samples (sample illuminated by blue laser in centre).
