Did you know?

Colouring agents used by medieval glaziers to create stained glass windows in York Minster have been found to contain tiny gold and silver fragments now known as nanoparticles.

More recently, nanoparticles have found application in the fields of chemistry, medicine and biology amongst others. The York JEOL Nanocentre at the University of York specialises in the study of these nanoparticles and has state-of-the-art facilities that enable us to examine single atoms like those depicted in this image.
