In photos: Photography contest showcases the beauty of science and engineering  Add to ...

A few of the strange and wonderful images from a national science photography competition. The overall winner was a spectacular swirling graphene ink in alcohol, which can be used to print electrical circuits onto paper. James Macleod, explained how the photograph came about: “We are working to create conductive inks for printing flexible electronics and are currently focused on optimising our recipe for use in different printing methods and for printing onto different surfaces. This was the first time we had used alcohol to create our ink and I was struck by how mesmerising it looked while mixing.” The competition was organized by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.
