The submitted image, "Ion 'shells' produced by ultrafast intense infrared laser pulses", by Jamie Nemeth and Will Bryan from the Department of Physics, won the Professor Dame Jean Thomas Postgraduate Image Award in 2011, and was selected from all of the postgraduate entries as the winner of the very first postgraduate award in the Research As Art competition, for the striking nature of the image and the quality of the abstract. The overall winner was Elizabeth Sackett, from the College of Engineering, for her image entitled Pac-Man, a striking representation of a laser-bombarded aerospace alloy.
The 2012 competition is now open, with 27th April 2012 being the closing date for entries.
