International competition offers head start for Science Journalists

To help recognize emerging Science Journalists, Germany’s most read medical journal Deutsches Ärzteblatt, the World Federation of Science Journalists (WFSJ), and the World Health Summit designed the “Next Generation of Science Journalists” competition.
To analyze and communicate complex scientific topics is more than just a profession – it is an art. Accordingly, launching a career as Science Journalist proves to be an arduous endeavor. Medical Science Journalism is no exception.

Each winner of the “Next Generation of Science Journalists” competition will participate in the World Health Summit 2012; take part in special workshops and meetings; enjoy unique, international networking opportunities. The submitted articles may be published via and support for travel expenses is being offered.

The Young Professional Applicants are to be at the beginning of their career as Science Journalists, and must submit one article on the main topic of “Global Health”, which must have been published after January 1st, 2011. The submission deadline is Sept. 1st 2012, applications may be sent to:

Further details and terms of application are available online:

The internationally renowned World Health Summit has the patronage of Angela Merkel, Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany, and François Hollande, President of the French Republic. It annually attracts high-ranking participants from Academia, Politics, Private Sector, Civil Society, NGOs, Media, and more. The “Next Generation of Science Journalists” competition opens the door to this elaborate meeting.

World Health Summit 2012
Oct. 21st – 24th, 2012
Langenbeck-Virchow-Haus, Luisenstr. 58, 10117 Berlin, Germany

Im Focus: Etching Microstructures with Lasers

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.

This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Im Focus: Light-driven atomic rotations excite magnetic waves

Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
