The November winners of ProIMAGE Contest 2010

(Nanowerk News) NT-MDT Co. is pleased to announce that the first stage of ProIMAGE Contest 2010 has come to an end!



In November, NT-MDT Co. received 66 interesting scans from all over the world! And according to the open on-line voting the winner of November became Mr. Sergey Kitan with the AFM-image «Lady spirit».



Sergey Kitan graduated from physicotechnical faculty of Far Eastern National University in 2003 specializing in “Microelectronics and semiconductors”.



Now, Sergey researches atomic processes of metal-semiconductor nanostructures based on metals, silicides and silicon. His scientific interests are oriented towards the research of electronic, optical and morphological characteristics of transition metals on silicon thin-film nanophases by spectroscopy and SPM methods. The laboratory of the university is equipped with NTEGRA Spectra and SOLVER P47.
The top-10 best AFM-scans in November were:
