"When words are combined with illustrations, viewers immediately gain a better understanding of scientific conceptsˮ.
Koen Pieterse, team leader of the ICMS Animation Studio.
Providing shape, color and 'visual power' to the atomic scale
Since the (atomic) scale and dynamic nature of molecular systems cannot be easily captured in illustrations, ICMS has initiated its Animation Studio. For over ten years now, the studio has offered the right tools to give shape, colour and 'visual power' to the atomic scale and dynamic nature of complex systems. This has allowed ICMS researchers to convey their ideas to fellow researchers and to the outside world in a convenient, yet appealing way. It has also helped the ICMS research to get noticed among the vast amount of scientific work presented worldwide.
