It’s our pleasure to announce the winner of the application note award 2013:
Philip Moll, Laboratory for Solid State Physics from the ETH Zurich.
We proudly present his cutting edge application using our ANR31 rotator: Philip & his group observed the formation of fast moving Josephson vortices, which depends critically on the angular alignment. Using the ANR31, they were able to rotate the sample below 2K with better than 0.1° precision and could observe no drifts while sweeping temperature and magnetic field.
We would like to thank all of our contestants for their many interesting and diversified submissions!
