I am delighted to inform you that a paper from Dr. Luis Velásquez-García's group in MTL received the prestigious Best Proceedings Paper award at the 13th International Conference on Micro- and Nano-Technology for Power Generation and Energy Conversion Applications (PowerMEMS 2013) last week in London. PowerMEMS is one of the most important conferences specialized on MEMS/NEMS and energy.

The paper was authored by Shuo Chen, Frances Hill, Eric Heubel and Luis Fernando Velásquez-García and is titled "A Compact X-ray Generator Using a Nanostructured Field Emission Cathode and a Microstructured Transmission Anode". Shuo and Frances are postods and Eric is a student at MIT. The devices were fabricated in MTL.

It is very rewarding for me to see the fantastic quality of research that takes place in MTL's facilities.

Congratulations Shuo, Frances, Eric and Luis!
