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
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.
