Visualisation of nano physics

Terms
This prize will be awarded by the Nanoscale Physics and Technology Group (NPTG) of the Institute of Physics (IOP) for the best PhD thesis completed in 2017 by a student member of the NPTG.

The value of the prize is £500 and was established to encourage and recognise high quality research and scientific writing in the broad research fields of nanoscience and nanotechnology.

The Franks prize is jointly funded by the NPT group and the National Physical Laboratory.

Nomination Process
PhD supervisors and CDT course directors can nominate for this Prize. Self-nominations from 2017 graduates are also accepted.

Nominations should include a support statement to highlight the scientific impact of the work, the thesis abstract, and a list of publications stemming from the research carried out during the PhD.

The qualifying period is the calendar year 2017, during which time the thesis must have been successfully examined for a Doctoral Degree and the final version submitted (theses originally submitted in 2016 are therefore eligible if they were examined in 2017).

Nominations can be sent by email to the PhD Prize Coordinator, Dr Cate Ducati, University of Cambridge, cd251@cam.ac.uk, at any time before the closing date of 20 April 2018. The prize winner will be announced by 15 June 2018.
