Bubble layers by David McAteer - Image taken using a standard DSLR digital camera of the base of a foam made using fairy liquid. Layers of bubbles can stack to form an ordered crystalline structure. Using 3D printed pyramidal shaped containers we can seed the growth of these single crystals. Bubbles can be useful tools to model atom structures.
