Winning Christmas Card Image

Many thanks to all of you who submitted images to our 2017 TYC Christmas Card Competition - we had some really great entries this year!

Congratulations to Robert Sinclair from UCL who won the TYC Christmas card image competition with his visual molecular dynamics rendering of superlubric graphene sheets which, when disturbed, slide long distances seemingly with no friction.

Many thanks to everyone who submitted an image to the competition! 

We hope you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
