The best scientific images of the nanoworld

The International Scanning Probe Microscope Image Contest (SPMage07) has announced their five awarded images. In this first edition around 300 images have been submitted from over the world. Choosing the best images has not been an easy work. Two selection phases have been needed, 50 images where firstly pre-selected by a technical committee, then, an International committee voted the best of these.

As a result, the image entitled "Nano rings" was awarded with the first prizes and Andreas Fuhrer of the ETH Zürich has won an amazing prize of five hundred euro. The second prize goes to Luciano Paulino Silva of the EMBRAPA Recursos Genéticos e Biotecnología, Brasilia (Brazil) for the image entitled "The surface of human red blood cells after treatment with antibiotic peptide". Konstantin Demidenok of Germany was the third awarded. Cornelius Krull (Germany) and Carmen Munuera (Spain) have been awarded with the fourth and fifth prizes, respectively. Total of Ten thousand euro have been distributed in awards.
