An image depicting a flaw in nitinol alloy wire captured as part of materials science and engineering PhD candidate Janet Gbur’s dissertation work will be on display at London’s Royal Institution.

Gbur’s image is one of seven stunning images included in an exhibition of the winners of Swansea University’s Research as Art competition. The exhibit opened to the public on Sept. 3 and will remain on show for about four months.

Her entry shows a colorful microscopic view of the wire and won the competition’s International Award.

Research as Art celebrates the diversity, beauty and impact of research at Swansea University. Judges evaluated a record 97 entries for this year’s competition.
