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 Prof. Pallab 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.

Sponsored by 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.
