Published on Friday February 5, 2010

Shruti Gour, a MS student in Biomedical Engineering (Advisor: Yury Gogotsi), and Siddhartha Pathak (PhD 2009, advisor: Surya Kalidindi) are among the twelve winners of the Materials Today 2009 Cover Competition.  Winners' images will be featured on Materials Today covers throughout 2010.

Gour's image is a "color-enhanced scanning electron micrograph of an aromatic-amorphous drug product intermediate on a gold-coated carbon substrate revealing a 100 micrometer heart shaped aggregate in the center among typical spherical drug particles" and will appear on the March 2010 issue.

The image submitted by Pathak and William Mook, a collaborator at Empa Switzerland, where Pathak is now a post-doctoral researcher, depicts a "collapse of a carbon nanotube micro-pillar" and will appear on the September 2010 issue.
