This Colourful Image is a Microscopic Electronic Device

By Jamie Condliffe on at

It may look like it belongs on the wall of a 1960s home, but this image is in fact a microscopic view of a tiny electronic device.

Captured by Matteo Bruna from the Department of Engineering at the University of Cambridge, the image shows a circuit made from graphene, built on a branched structure of plastic instead of glass. It's one of a selection of images on show at the Cambridge Science Festival from March 10th. [Cambridge Science Festival via New Scientist]
