Dopamine "Skittle Rain" Fine Art Print

Karl Gaff Photography

  • A small quantity of powdered dopamine was placed on a glass slide and heated to a temperature exceeding its melting point. In doing so, it sizzled and splattered across the substrate, forming a random distribution of pools and microdroplets on the glass surface. In time, as the temperature decreased, these droplets slowly changed phase from liquid to the crystalline state where the molecules orientate themselves in such a way that the overall crystal exhibits an optical property called birefringence. Depending on both the thickness and orientation of the crystal grains, the frozen droplets appear to take on different interference colours when imaged with polarised light microscopy
