|The 1st place – Ms. Alexandra A. Sertsova (Russia) with her image “Dancing”
Scan size: 12,5x12,5 um Probes used: CSG01
ProIMAGE Contest 2010 has finished. NT-MDT Co. congratulates the participants and the winners.
ProIMAGE Contest 2010 is a competition of AFM-images obtained with NT-MDT probes. The main aim is to collect image gallery of the scans showing the best application of the probes in great variety of research in different spheres and objects (cells, molecules, atoms of the organic and non-organic materials, minerals, soil, bacteria etc.).
The participants sent their AFM-images for 4 months. The total quantity was 170 scans. And the scans of ProIMAGE Contest 2010 were really amazing, scientifically and aesthetically interesting.
The final TOP-40 consisted of TOP-10 of August, September, October and November. All of them were elected by open on-line voting. And in January 2011 the jury chooses the best scan.
Ms. Alexandra conquered the jury. As she said her dancing creatures were made of polyvinyl alcohol film contained tripsin. It was a crystalline part of polymer film. But the result we can see is vivid and unusual. Wonders of science and engineering!
Ms. Sertsova works at the Moscow State Textile Institute. "A.N. Kosygin" at the Department of the technology of the chemical fibers and nanomaterials, and in parallel studies in graduate school in the Russian Chemical and Technological University "D.I. Mendeleev" at the Department of nanomaterials and nanotechnology. Her research interests are quite extensive: atomic force microscopy of textile and plastic materials, development and creation of nanocomposites with special properties, and others.
The 2nd place - Mr. Sergey Kitan (Russia) with the scan "For you, Ladies"
The red rose for beautiful ladies is the AFM-image of Cu film on Fe-Si/Si(001) in UHV-chamber. SemiContact regime was used.
Mr. Kitan works at Far Eastern National University and researches atomic processes of metal-semiconductor nanostructures based on metals, silicides and Si in Physics departure. His scientific interests are oriented to the research of electronic, optical and morphological characteristics of transition metals on Si thin-film nanophases by spectroscopy and SPM methods. The laboratory of the University equipped with NTEGRA Spectra and SOLVER P47.
The 3rd place - Ms. Clare Harvey (the Netherlands) with the scan "Unexpected Snow"
Ms. Clare Harvey (Utrecht University) presented to the jury the AFM-image of Rhodamine-6G and Ag nano-cubes deposited on a polished alumina wafer. The sample was dried in a flow of warm air, leading to the unusual structures and looked like flakes of snow.
The winners will be awarded by the Diplomas of NT-MDT Co. and by certificates:
USD 1000 for the 3rd place
USD 1500 for the 2nd place
USD 2500 for the 1st place!
NT-MDT Co. thanks the participants for the excellent AFM-images.
Watch for our announcements and participate in new competitions. Good luck!
Nanotechnology is exploding. The world of small sizes has never been as vital for so many directions in science and industry. With this new direction comes a greater need for measurement on the atomic scale and new demands for reliable, precise, and multi-purpose instrumentation. NT-MDT enjoys a 20-year history in instrumentation created specifically for nanotechnology research, leading the field in originality, quality, and high tech development.
We strive for next-generation SPM technology, whether it be in pure modularity that allows a university or industrial lab to start with a cost-effective core product and build to a grand, multi-user research center or the ultimate amalgamation of SPM with related technologies that has resulted in ultramicrotomy for nanotomography and spectroscopy-based instruments that meld the world of imaging with the world of chemical analysis. We believe passionately in pushing the envelope for rapid innovation while still delivering superb customer service.
NT-MDT offers expert service and applications development through more than 20 representative offices and distributor centers around the globe. There are two key branch offices opened in Holland and Ireland. In the past five years, our installed base has grown to over 2000 instruments, promoting growth of both lab and research programs world-wide.
Whether you are engaged every day in nano research or just contemplating it, coupling your specific scientific knowledge and expertise with our competence in instrument creation will produce the highest quality research results currently available.
Our mission is to enable researchers, engineers and developers to conduct nanoscale research by creating ever more perfect nanotechnology instrumentation. Along the way, we maintain a global perspective, always taking into consideration the needs of student in the classroom, the researcher at the cutting edge in the laboratory, and the practicalities of industrial R&D.
