He is only 20 micrometers tall, has a hat pulled over his eyes, a long beard, and on his shoulder he holds a mysterious ring – that is what a fragment of the structure of graphene looks like. It is a dwarf that has settled on a grain of sand in Wrocław Research Centre EIT+. The contest for the name of the dwarf is now finished – the dwarf is called Teeny Grapheny.
Among the names submitted, the jury selected two winners: Anna Adamowicz and Michał Świątkowski. The winners can pick up their prize in the form of a grain of sand with the image of a dwarf in the Laboratory of Electron Microscopy in Wrocław Research Centre EIT+.
Everyone who took part in the competition for the name of the dwarf will be able to visit the EIT+ laboratory. A special open day at the Laboratory of Electron Microscopy will be prepared for the participants of the competition on 13th September 2014 (Saturday) at 11 am. Entrance to the laboratories will be possible only after applying and sending information by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications will be accepted until September 7.
