Micrograph image of alpha-Zirconium phosphate micro-crystals.

Micro-crystals of alpha-Zirconium phosphate, created at the Interfaces in Materials PREM Center at Texas State University, are a source of platelets with nanometer dimensions. The micrograph image shows that the lab group has control over the platelet diameter, which is an important feature in nano-structured materials for catalysis, environmental and energy related applications.

Image of popcorn-shaped nanoparticles, black dots, that detects a type of Salmonella bacteria.

This image shows that popcorn-shaped nanoparticles (C), developed at the Jackson State University PREM, can selectively detect a type of Salmonella bacteria. A color change indicates whether or not lettuce is contaminated with Salmonella bacteria (A) or is safe to eat (B).
