Nanotech measurement contest offers $5000 in cash prizes
May 12, 2006
Keithley Instruments, Inc., a leader in solutions for emerging measurement needs, has teamed with R&D Magazine to create a Nanotechnology Test & Measurement Applications Contest for researchers and test innovators who are making complex and advanced electrical measurements on nanoscale materials and devices.
The aim of the contest is to encourage researchers and development engineers to share nanotech electrical measurement techniques that will help the industry at large. The editors of R&D Magazine will judge the contest entries. Three prizes will be awarded: 1st Place - $2,500; 2nd Place - $1,500; and 3rd Place - $1,000.
Entries will be accepted from Keithley equipment users worldwide doing research or product development in any of the diverse nanotechnology disciplines (electronics, biotechnology, structural material, etc.) and involved with electrical measurements on materials and devices (except employees of Keithley and R&D Magazine). Researchers are encouraged to complete and submit a contest entry form describing their application and how they overcame the measurement challenges associated with it. An entry form and full contest rules can be found at http://www.respond1.com/keithley/nanocontest.
Entries must be submitted online before June 30, 2006.
