This image bank has been designed by Andalusian Programme of Scientific Spreading of the Andalusian Ministry of Innovation, Science and Enterprise, and is coordinated by the Science Park of Granada.
Sciencepics is, in terms of volume of images, the first regional image bank in Spain. Sciencepics aims to become a useful tool to complement the various spreading and training actions carried out both by education centres (from primary education centres to universities), mass media and science and innovation spreading agents.
Sciencepics will provide visual support for scientific-related knowledge in digital (websites, CDs, etc.) or in print format.
Sciencepics is very easy to use- Images are grouped using as a reference the sectorial classification of research groups in Andalucía: Agriculture and Nutrition, Life Sciences, Health Sciences and Technology, Natural Resources and Environment, Economics, Social Sciences and Law, Humanities, Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics, Production Technologies, and Information and Communications Technologies. To download the images, users only need to key in the desired terms in the search engine.
Sciencepics contents are free, open and universal, and complement the Andalusian Programme of Scientific Spreading as a news agency since last 9 January. This service -also free of charge- already has 1,800 subscriptions for the Spanish version and 2,000 for the English version.
Sciencepics aims to be a cooperative tool, which can evolve thanks to contributions from other institutions and private individuals. The Andalusian Programme of Scientific Spreading will update the portal weekly. It will also be open to other institutions willing to share their image catalogues. To this end, a CD containing the selected photographs must be sent to the Andalusian Programme of Scientific Spreading.

A newly developed laser technology has enabled physicists in the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (jointly run by LMU Munich and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics) to generate attosecond bursts of high-energy photons of unprecedented intensity. This has made it possible to observe the interaction of multiple photons in a single such pulse with electrons in the inner orbital shell of an atom.
In order to observe the ultrafast electron motion in the inner shells of atoms with short light pulses, the pulses must not only be ultrashort, but very...
A group of researchers led by Andrea Cavalleri at the Max Planck Institute for Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) in Hamburg has demonstrated a new method enabling precise measurements of the interatomic forces that hold crystalline solids together. The paper Probing the Interatomic Potential of Solids by Strong-Field Nonlinear Phononics, published online in Nature, explains how a terahertz-frequency laser pulse can drive very large deformations of the crystal.
By measuring the highly unusual atomic trajectories under extreme electromagnetic transients, the MPSD group could reconstruct how rigid the atomic bonds are...
Quantum computers may one day solve algorithmic problems which even the biggest supercomputers today can’t manage. But how do you test a quantum computer to...
For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.
In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...
