From the Molecular & Nano-Archaeology Lab:

Dear users of Nova Nano 230,  

To celebrate one year of operation of the new FEGVPSEM-EDS, NN230, at the Molecular & Nano Archaeology (MNA) Laboratory and to mark the date of the Southern California Society of Microscopy and Microanalysis meeting (SCSMM) and the ThermoFisher/FEI workshop organized by the Materials Science Department and MNA lab, we are happy to announce the second  “Best SEM Image MNA Award" contest. The Prize will be a 5-hour free operation on the SEM worth of $250. The winning image will be displayed as a part of our Gallery of Honors in the MNA laboratory (E5-1230). The prize winner will be announced during the SCSMM meeting on November 9th 2010.   

Each user can submit up to three SEM images in TIFF format at 1024*884 (and higher) dpi definition taken on our FEI Nova NanoSEM 230 at the MNA laboratory with a short description of each image and parameters being used. Submissions should be made electronically using the laboratory’s official email address: mnalab@ucla.edu. Please use as email subject title: The Best SEM Picture SQ-2010-fall. All images will be posted on the laboratory’s website.

We are also very happy to announce our first “FEI Tony Award”.  This award has been introduced in appreciation of the effort of the FEI manufacturing company in the production of the state-of-the-art NN230 scanning electron microscope that we proudly own in our laboratory. With this contest we recognize the personal efforts of FEI US Sales Director, Tony Carpenter. Images submitted for the MNA Award will be automatically considered also for the FEI Tony Award. The prize in this contest is established by FEI. It is Carry-On Duffrite http://www.leedsworld.com/products/item/?item=8050-21 

Please note that the MNA award nominee will not qualify automatically as the FEI Tony Award recipient.  Tony Carpenter will evaluate the best image for the FEI Tony Award, separately.  


Contest Deadline  

The deadline for submissions is November 1th, 5pm PT, 2010. Late submissions will not be considered.
