Micrograph Award 2015

1st place - 'Photonic CNOT quantum gate', Menno Poot, Yale University, USA

The Raith Micrograph Award 2015 again proved to be a popular competition among our system users. Many participants shared their interesting work, showing us once again the wide range of applications our customers are creating.  The entries were very varied, and their exceptionally high quality made it very hard to select three winners out of the numerous micrographs we received. After a thorough evaluation of the micrographs and their corresponding descriptions, a decision was made. As an exception, for the first time since the introduction of the Micrograph Award in 2004 we are rewarding not just three participants, but have selected two applications for joint third place, thus increasing the number of winners to four. On top of that, we are happy to announce six winners in the “Art Award” category. The high number of winners reflects how impressed we were by the contributions we received.  We at Raith want to thank all entrants for their participation and are already looking forward to next year’s Micrograph Award. To check out this year’s winners please visit our Micrograph Award page.  You can also check out our terms of entry in preparation for the Micrograph Award 2016!
