For the third year, COXEM Co., Ltd. has sponsored the DIY SEM competition that takes place among students at the Korean Institute of Microscopy.  The competition is also sponsored by the Korean Society for Electron Microscopy.  Coxem’s CEO, Dr. Jun Hee Lee participates with the students as a mentor and is often intrigued by the interesting concepts developed by the students.

In the competition, students design and build their own Scanning Electron Microscopes.  Students learn much about both the engineering and science that pertains to an SEM, often developing some novel concepts. Winners of one competition are pictured here.

A video documentary is underway pending the completion of this year’s competition and will be publicized upon its release.  More about the competition can be read at the following translated links:  PAGE1 and PAGE2 and PAGE3
