Winners of the 2016 Photo Competition

Winners of the CIMLAE Photo Competition 2016 banner

For the first time this year, we ran a photo competition open to all of our current researchers, students and staff in a quest to find the perfect visual representation of LAE research in action.  We have been delighted by the response and enjoyed looking through all of your submissions. There were three categories for submissions and the judges were tasked with selecting an overall winner for each of these categories:

  • Research in Action – lab heroes!
  • Research in Focus- taken using microscopes and other high-magnification imaging devices
  • Large-Area Electronics- Tools, Devices, Products etc.

After long and careful deliberation, the panel have made their decisions.

Congratulations and well done to our winners, Dr Sheida Faraji, University of Manchester, Dr Stuart Higgins, University of Cambridge and joint winners Dr James Semple and Dr Dimitra Georgiadou, Imperial College London.


Overall Winner in Category: Research in Action

Day-to-day in the cleanroom.  Researchers going about their day-to-day work in a cleanroom – a filtered and air-conditioned room that protects experiments from dust. The special suits protect the room by keeping dead skin and hair from contaminating the air. The cleanroom is also tinted yellow to protect light-sensitive materials. Clockwise from top-left: 1) centre researcher Dr Iyad Nasrallah sits beside an inkjet printer which he uses to print semiconducting inks; 2) discussions between colleagues are a continual source of new ideas; 3) centre researcher John Armitage caught on camera while heating his samples; 4) a colleague waits for his cleaning process to finish.
