Zoom into the structure of a butterfly’s wing from its delicate surface, through layers of scales, scale structures, to chitin fibrils made up of molecules finally a carbon atom.
Close up view of the scales that make-up a butterfly's wing...
The chitin in a butterfly’s wing scales takes the form of long strands or fibrils.
Zoom into the Bloodstream
Zoom into the Bloodstream from the human body transitioning into the heart, arteries, to blood cells, to the hemoglobin inside, to the oxygen molecules carried through out the body. Awarded First Place in the Illustration category of the 2008 National Science Foundation (NSF) and Science’s International Science and Engineering Visualization Challenge.
As part of a Nanoscale Science Project, the primary message of these illustrations is that things are made of atoms.
Zoom into the Bloodstream
This part of the poster shows an arteriole, with blood cells, platelets, and lipids.
Zoom into a Computer Chip shows a transistion between different scales, with the largest object laptop at the top to the and smallest objects transistor gates, silicon dioxide gate and silicon atoms at the bottom.
Detail from poster transitioning from laptop, motherboard, into the detail of a microprocessor.

scattering in GaN.
A beam of white light generated across a surface containing nanogratings with successive groove depth can trap light at different positions separating it into wavelengths of light.
Peptides are incorporate into a silica-based nanoparticle package holding a small amount of an anti-cancer drug keeping the drug away from healthy tissues.
Solid State NMR Test
Development of solid state NMR (SSNMR), which largely include sophisticated pulse sequences for higher resolution of the many convoluted signals received from solid-state samples. SSNMR is most commonly used for elucidating protein structure and also for analysis of biomaterials (cells, biofilms, etc.)
Art work done for UC Berkley web page.
The xenon sensor consists of a cryptophane cage into and out of which a xenon atom can exchange, which is linked to a binding peptide specific to the target of interest, i.e. cancer cells. Webpage art UC Berkley
Plasma Volume Expander
Pentastarch molecules in I.V. infusion used to raise plasma volume and pressure in emergency and surgical procedures. Pentastarch molecules are broken down by amylase and rapidly eliminated by renal excretion
