Nanotech Measurement Champs

The Inter-University Nanotechnology Measurement Championships will be held this week at the launch of Izon's new US headquarters. Contestants from Harvard University, MIT, Boston University and University of Massachusetts will race each other to accurately measure a complex set of nanoparticles in real time to decide a winner.

Izon Chief Executive, Hans van der Voorn says, "The nanotech champs is a fun combination of sport and science that will pitch the top Universities against each other. The researcher who is the quickest to accurately measure a complex set of nanoparticles will receive a cup and bragging rights.”

The Inter-University Nanoparticle Measurement Championships will be held on September 21st, 2011 from 5.30-8.00pm at Izon Science’s office and laboratory at One Kendall Square, Cambridge, MA.

The university researchers taking part in the nanotechnology measurement championships represent a broad range of research disciplines with particle characterization being the common theme.  The contestants vying for the honor of first Nanotechnology Measurement Champion are:
