This annual award goes to papers containing original work in the field of microscopy which are judged on scientific merit, technical and general quality, expected impact, originality and relevance to microscopy. Each year it is intended that one paper will be chosen in each of the categories of (i) Instrumentation and Technique Development, (ii) Materials Sciences and (iii) Life Sciences.
The first article, awarded in the “Instrumentation and Technique Development” category has been issued in the renowned review Science in January 2017, doing the cover of the edition, and is the result of the LabEx project NICE (LabEx EMC3 2014 Call), a collaboration between CRISMAT, CIMAP, LCS and Czech Academy of Sciences. (see article: http://wp.me/p4mP7q-lx).
“Hydrogen positions in single nanocrystals revealed by electron diffraction” par L. Palatinus, P. Brázda, P. Boullay, O. Perez, M. Klementová, S. Petit, V. Eigner, M. Zaarour and S. Mintova. Science 355 (2017) 166-169. DOI: 10.1126 / science.aak9652.
The second article awarded was published in the review Nano Letters. It comes from the ASAP project, funded also via LabEx EMC3 and selected in 2011. It was awarded in the Materials Sciences category:
“Carrier Localization in GaN/AlN Quantum Dots As Revealed by Three-Dimensional Multimicroscopy”. Lorenzo Mancini, Florian Moyon, David Hernandez-Maldonado, Ivan Blum, Jonathan Houard, Williams Lefebvre, François Vurpillot, Aparna Das, Eva Monroy, and Lorenzo Rigutti. Nano Letters 17 (2017) 4261-4269. DOI: 10.1021/acs.nanolett.7b01189
All our congratulations go to the co-authors of these articles coming from collaborative works funded through LabEx EMC3, NICE (2014 Call) and ASAP (2011 Call) which demonstrate the excellence of the research led in the frame of LabEx EMC3.
