Aussie receive Award and spends it all on an ALD trip to Boston

I once got an award and spend it all on a trip across the Baltic pond on a 2 week trip to Helsinki to learn about in-situ ALD from the Master Anti Rahtu and twice to visit two other masters in in-situ ALD Jaan Aarik and Kaupo Kulki in Tartu, Estonia. Here we have a lucky ALD-Guy from Down Under who gets to travel across the globe from Melbourne to Boston to spend 2 weeks of ALD in the Cambridge Nanotech ALD Applications Lab. This must be travel money well spent!

As reported by Melbourne Centre for Nanofabrication: Congratulations to MCN (ANFF-VIC) Process Engineer, Dr Lachlan Hyde for nabbing a coveted Frater Award at this year's annual ANFF showcase in Brisbane. The Frater's are local/international travel awards aimed at fostering technical and professional growth of ANFF staff. Lachlan will be using his award to travel to Ultratech/Cambridge NanoTech's labs in Boston for a two week stint devoted to ALD process development.
