Competition to win an iPad 2

We are looking for the best short application note and/or image series completed using Quorum Technologies preparation instruments, and offering entrants the chance to win an iPad 2.

It is forty years since the launch of our first sputter coating and critical point drying systems in 1971. To mark this occasion, we are keen to find out how our many customers are using our instruments to fulfill their research needs. If you have a story or image(s) to share, we’d like to know about it.

Work could have been carried out using current Quorum Technologies equipment, or older instrumentation with brand names, such as Emitech, Polaron, Bio-rad, VG etc. Instruments could include:

• Cryo-SEMs (PP3000T, PP2000T, K1250X etc)
• Sputter coaters, carbon coaters and vacuum evaporators
• Critical point dryers (E3000, K850 etc)
• RF plasma reactors (K1050X, PT7150 etc)
• Freeze dryers (K750X, K775X etc)

The deadline for entries is 31 January 2012, and these can be forwarded as Adobe, JPG or Word documents with photographs embedded or as separate email attachments. Original black and white or colourised images are permitted and should be in JPG format.

The prize winner will be announced online and notified by email on 29 February 2012.
