Graphene Virtual Microscope

I was commissioned to create an interactive museum exhibit for the Nobel Prize winning research team at Manchester University demonstrating and exploring the properties of Graphene. The exhibition stand was for the annual Royal Society Meeting in London and needed to be portable and easy to set up for the scientists, so I proposed a kiosk iPad application housed in a wall mounted enclosure. The success from this lead to them asking me to publish the app to the Apple App Store and Google Play where it has had a consistent high volume of downloads.

Features :

  • Allows the user to zoom into a sample of Graphene like a microscope
  • Mimics the behaviour of an electron microscope including the affects of the imaging process
  • Shows images of actual atoms and the atomic structure of Graphene
  • Includes detailed explanations at each stage in the microscopy
