Anton Paar Research Award to Robin Ras and Quan Zhou
The first Anton Paar Research Award for Instrumental Analytics & Characterization has been granted to the team of Professors Robin Ras and Quan Zhou for their invention on Scanning Droplet Adhesion Microscopy (SDAM).
The award-winning measurement technique allows locally resolved measurement of the wettability of surfaces. It has been developed to understand and characterize the wetting properties of liquid-repellent materials. The award was presented to them on 7th February 2019.
The prize money of 20,000 Euro was divided between two inventions that are outstanding both scientifically and in their metrological implementation. The other winners are Johannes Waclawek and Bernhard Lendl from the Technical University of Vienna. A total of 69 applications from 19 countries were submitted for Anton Paar's first research prize.
