Swapnajit Chakravarty received the 2006 Raith Micrograph Award. His winning
micrograph was of a metallic nano-air-bridge contact to an array of H2
photonic crystal (PC) microcavities. Swapnajit recently defended his PhD
thesis, "Two dimensional Photonic Crystal Slab Light Emitters, Light
Emitting Arrays and Chemical Sensors." He studied with
Bhattacharya, James R. Mellor Professor of Engineering, and member of
the Solid-State Electronics
Laboratory. Swapnajit is currently an Applications Development Engineer
at KLA-Tencor in San Jose, CA.
Raith GmbH, the award was established so that users of Raith
instruments could share their research results and micrographs with the
international user community. Participants create nano structures using a
Raith electron beam lithography system. Winners are judged on the uniqueness
of nanostructure, the quality of the image, and the description of the work.
