Sildenafil is the active ingredient in Viagra tablets.Sildenafil was re crystallised in 10% alcohol and allowed to air dry, then adhered onto a SEM stub using double sided carbon adhesive discs, prior to viewing the sample was gold coated in an Emitech K550 Sputter Coater for 2 minutes at 20mA. The coated sample was then transferred into a FEI XL30 Scanning Electron Microscope and imaged at 10KV using a high tilt angle. High definition digital images were captured and imported into Photoshop for enhancing and colouring.

The arrays of nickel nanowires have been produced by electro-deposition of nickel into the pores of porous alumina membranes. The membrane has been resolved by chemical etching and free standing nanowires perpendicular to a substrate have been obtained. Due to their ferromagnetic properties, the nanowires have possible applications in high density magnetic recording media. The picture shows a cross section view of the nickel nanowire array.

Silver clusters deposited by thermal evaporation onto self-assembled polystyrene nano-spheres (900 nm). Inspect F SEM FEG @ Nanofacility Piemonte INRIM. Self-assembled polystyrene nanospheres are used as masks for thin films and materials nanostructuration on large area. Maybe the subject doesn't match the topics of this year, but surely the title fits.
