Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

I took home the Science trophy in the Nanotechnology category of the inaugural Scien@Art Physics 2010 Competition. This competition was sponsored by Second Physics, SL Art, Experience Italy, and the University of Western Australia. A truly international event.

My piece included 4 devices that explore the curious properties of physical nanoprims. Objects that are cut and hollowed to appear significantly smaller than 1 cubic centimeter have so little mass to keep them in place that they tend to dance around wildly. Three of the devices showed the effects of tiny prims confined in various ways. The fourth device was a small particle accelerator with detectors showing the chaotic effects of objects that are nearly invisible.

Here are some pictures of the piece and the awards presentation. The winning entries remain on display at the Alpine Executive Center through August, I believe.
