STRANGER IN THE NIGHT
In this SEM picture one can see a bunch of bundled carbon nanotubes. Carbon nanotubes were synthesized in a continuous gas phase process and then bundled. The bunch is attached to carbon tape. The width of the bunch is about 800 nm and the smallest visible bundles are about 25 nm wide. If you have a close look you can see an alien-like body standing on the left of the bunch.
       
WEB OF SCIENCE
In this picture the invisible has been made visible. A web of carbon nanotubes that bundled and are integrated in a matrix is formed. The carbon nanotubes were synthesized in a continuous gas phase process and the picture shown is a snapshot of this. The picture is taken from a part of the worktube and its actual height is 50 mm. The image is a negative.
      
THE GRAPHIC SWIRL
In this picture an eddy within a furnace work tube is made visible by carbon deposit at the wall. The picture is taken along the furnace tube. The diameter of the tube is 50 mm. The colour of the image is converted into black and white.
      
JACKSON POLLOCK & NANOSCIENCE
This SEM depicts the formation of carbon nanotubes into macroscopic webs. Carbon nanotubes were synthesized in a continuous gas phase process and then bundled. The width of the smallest bundles is about 25 nm. Some images are a negative and in some the color temperature has been changed. Also, in picture 001a filter which dilated the structures and in 006band 007ba filter which introduced some noise was used.
       
GARDEN OF EDEN

This SEM depicts the formation of carbon nanotubes into macroscopic webs. The picture is taken from carbon nanotubes that attached to carbon tape. The width of the big tree is about 700 nm and the smallest visible bundles are about 25 nm wide.

CARBON NANOTUBE COLLECTION 
(Eng01, 02, 03, ChemEng01, ChemEng04):The following images show Carbon Nanotubes - this fibrous material is made of self-assembled carbon nanotubes. The diameter of each nanotube is more than a thousand times smaller than the diameter of a human hair. The understanding of fundamental laws of nature, built over decades of scientific progress, enabled us to control the spectacular organization of this material, conferring unique properties to the fiber, which now has a game-changer potential in various areas of applications, ranging from electricity conduction to electromagnetic shielding for satellites. Within these carbon nanotube structures impurities are present which can catch the interest.

CARBON NANOTUBE -  SILVER PROSPECTOR
This image shows a collection of UV charged metal nanoparticles on a silver filter ( joined project with Jean de la Verpilliere).
   
CARBON NANOTUBE SEA-URCHINS
This image shows carbon nanotube sea-urchins synthesized in the gas-phase from precursor droplet evaporation. The core is made out of aluminium and iron.

Phone Cases

UPROSA cases are available for the following phone models:

  • Samsung Galaxy S4 (i9500)
  • Samsung Galaxy S5 (G900)
  • iPhone 4/4s
  • iPhone 5/5s
  • iPhone 5c
  • iPhone 6
  • iPhone 6 Plus

Our cases are made from a one-piece, impact resistant and flexible hard plastic case with an extremely slim profile. We use the latest 3-D printing technology to provide with a full-wrap case (design printed on the sides) for you to show off your science flair.

MacBook Cases

UPROSA MacBook cases are available for the following MacBook models:

  • 11" MacBook Air
  • 13" MacBook Air
  • 12" MacBook
  • 13" MacBook Pro (non-retina)
  • 13" MacBook Pro Retina
  • 15" MacBook Pro Retina

Our MacBook cases consist of two pieces (top and bottom) made from ultra-slim transparent plastic to best protect your laptop. Using state-of-the-art printing technology, the top cover is printed with stunning scientific imagery - except for the centre part, which features a cut-out matching the Apple logo.

Slight variations of the design might occur due to the different MacBook models having slightly different shapes and sizes.
