Golden Hair Heads-911 viewsA tapping-mode phase atomic force microscopy (AFM) image of polystyrene nanoparticles spun-coated onto a mica substrate is viewed. The average size of the polystyrene nanoparticles is 120 nm. But the nanoparticles suffered from an interaction with the chloroform solvent which started to deform the normal spherical geometry of the nanoparticles. The idea of placing eyes and mouth into the nanoparticles took place due to the look of those melted nanoparticles behaving like tiny heads with hair. The “nano eyes and mouth” are virtually the sizes of ~20 nm were added to the image using the paint software from windows.

Nano Golf-825 viewsA tapping-mode height atomic force microscopy (AFM) image of polystyrene nanoparticles spun-coated onto a polymeric film substrate is viewed. The polymeric film displays some nanoholes with an average size of 140-180 nm, where the average size of the polystyrene nanoparticles is 120 nm. The nanoparticles displaced along the surface interact between the film surface and the some of them are entrapped onto the holes of the polymeric film. The idea of placing some golf markers for the holes provides a new view of what could be playing golf at that level. The “nano golf markers” which are virtually the size of ~400 nm were added to the image using the paint software from windows.

Noise-891 viewsA tapping-mode height atomic force microscopy (AFM) image of a dibloc copolymer film made of polystyrene-b-polymethylmethacrylate 140-b-60 x103 (Mw) spun-coated onto a silicon substrate and washed with glacial acetic acid is viewed. Where the polymer is started to be seen dissolving under the action of the acid providing a lot of noise collected during the reading of the AFM tip of the surface of the sample; not enabling a correct view of the 35 nanometers (nm) nanopores along the film surface. The writing of the words: no signal was added to the image using the paint software from windows. The idea underneath this image is to provide the same effect obtained from a TV set were the connection has failed and provide a twisted or no existing image from the TV set. The only thing missing in the image will be the real existing noise associated to such situation.

The Battle-875 viewsA tapping-mode height atomic force microscopy (AFM) image of silica and polystyrene nanoparticles spun-coated onto a silicon substrate is viewed. The average size of the silica nanoparticles is 80-90 nm and the polystyrene ones is 120 nm. As the different nanoparticles displaced along the surface interact between each others the idea of giving swords to each nanoparticle was born, converting this nanospace into a battle field. The “nano swords” which are virtually no bigger then 10 nm were added to the image using the paint software from windows.
