2013 Academic award: 'Fractured river of ice', Adrian Luckman, Department of Geography, Swansea Uni)

Fractured River of Ice by Adrian Luckman: Glaciers form where snow and ice accumulates in sufficient quantities for it to flow under the pressure of its own weight. This is Kronebreen, the fastest-flowing glacier on Arctic Spitsbergen.

2013 Early Career Researcher award: 'Graveyard of ambition?', Matt Carnie (College of Engineering, Swansea Uni)

A Kinder chocolate challenge, the gravestones of failed solar cells, insect poo and medieval disfigurement were among the images celebrated in the 2013 Research as Art competition

2013 Postgraduate Award: 'Finding needles in four-dimensional haystacks', Ed Bennett (Department of Physics, Swansea Uni)

'Finding needles in four-dimensional haystacks' by Ed Bennett (Physics). Each cube represents the same moment in time, of a space times smaller than an atom, in a theory describing interactions of elementary particles.

2013 Runner-up: 'Beyond the smoke', Cristina Santin (Department of Geography, Swansea Uni)

A Kinder chocolate challenge, the gravestones of failed solar cells, insect poo and medieval disfigurement were among the images celebrated in the 2013 Research as Art competition

3D X-ray CT allows us to 'see' objects' interiors in precise 3D without damaging them in any way.  These scans then allow exact reproductions to be 3D printed.  This video accompanies 2013's overall 'Research as Art' winning image, 'Project surprise' (Laura North, Materials Engineering)
