No only are the amazing successes of the scientists from the University of Adelaide’s Faculty of Sciences regularly celebrated in the Uni’s publication the Adelaidean (see the story PM’s science prize shines light on research about the work of the Centre for Expertise in Photonics), but the Faculty’s own clever amateur photographers are providing some of these beautiful images to share with the world! In this case, the photo of the “Laser Bone” was taken by Wayne England from the School of Chemistry and Physics.
Laser Bone!

What’s especially nifty is that by providing a link to the version of the image on the flickr website, the Adelaidean is encouraging comment and interaction with the image, as well as enabling download of various resolutions of the picture. This is because flickr images are licensed openly, so that anyone can freely use them in presentations / websites / blogposts, whatever – just so long as “attribution” is provided, as done by the Adelaidean.

The Faculty of Sciences School of AF&W presented their annual Research Day last Wednesday 5th November. This is an important opportunity for all members of the School to both present and receive up to date information about the research activities conducted across all 3 University of Adelaide campuses. For Postgraduate students this is particularly significant as they not only learn the skills required for effective and meaningful communication of their scientific research, but also provides an opportunity to be awarded prizes and accolades for their achievements!
