Khalid Hattar, Ph.D. student in FS-MRL researcher Ian Robertson's group, is the winner of the Materials Today cover competition for 2006. His image appears on the cover of the journal's December 2006 issue.

The winning image was taken on the JEOL 4000 TEM, showing a colorized transmission electron microscopy (TEM) image of the fractal pattern created during an in situ TEM study of the Au-Si eutectic reaction at approximately 363°C. The sample, produced by microfabrication, initially consisted of a 1 mm free-standing Au film supported by a Si washer with an outer diameter of 3 mm.
