I attended the GradSAM 2011 conference, which was organised by the Graduate School in Advanced Materials for the 21st century at the faculty of Science and technology, Uppsala university (a local conference primarily for the doctoral students at the faculty).

We presented the poster “Template-assisted electrodeposition of \(\ce{TiO2}\) on transparent conductive oxide substrates”, which dealt with some aspects of the synthesis of nanoparticulate titania.

I made the poster using LaTeX (with the beamerposter package), Sweave and R, with all of the illustrations done using PGF/TikZ. The periodic table was written in TikZ and adapted from Ivan Griffin’s Periodic Table of Chemical Elements.
