NSERC Science Exposed - Public Voting Now Open

June 30, 2017

NSERC's Science Exposed is an image contest where researchers from an array of disciplines capture images that represent their work in an impactful and visual way.   

This year, David Ester from SFU Chemistry is one of the finalists and he needs your vote! His entry, a polarized optical microscopy image of a liquid crystalline material, shows a stunning display of colours. Liquid crystalline phases are used in devices such as our phones, TVs, and laptop computers. The image shows layers of hexagonally packed molecules—such highly ordered materials show much potential for organic semiconductor applications.

To vote for David, go to NSERC Science Exposed website and click on number 10.
