This prize of € 5000 is awarded to a young researcher who has made an outstanding contribution to scientific progress in fatigue and damage tolerance (*) as applied to aerospace.
Researchers from any country, worldwide, are eligible for the Jaap Schijve Award. Selection for the award is based on technical contributions to advancement of the field of aeronautical fatigue that have been made by the recipient, who should be at an early stage of their career -- preferably within 10 years of entering the field and/or below the age of 35. The recipient must have earned an MS or PhD degree in engineering or a related field. He/she should have published at least two articles in peer reviewed scientific journals.
The award winner will be selected by a jury consisting of the General Director of the NLR, the Dean of the Aerospace Department of Delft University of Technology, and three experts in the field of fatigue and damage tolerance: one from the Aerospace Department of Delft University of Technology, one from the Aerospace Vehicles Division of the NLR and an international expert. The award will be awarded biennially, i.e. every other year.
The main selection criteria used by the jury are:- high scientific quality of the contributions,
(*) Fatigue: in metals/composites/hybrids this is the phenomenon/mechanism by which fluctuating (service) loads induce permanent structural changes (resulting in loss of load bearing capability), initiate damage and might lead to failure at a certain moment in life at stress levels below the monotonic failure stress.
Damage Tolerance: The ability of a structure to sustain anticipated loads in the presence of fatigue, corrosion or accidental damage until such damage is detected through inspections or malfunctions and is repaired.

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.
At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...
There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?
At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
So-called quantum many-body scars allow quantum systems to stay out of equilibrium much longer, explaining experiment | Study published in Nature Physics

A team led by Austrian experimental physicist Rainer Blatt has succeeded in characterizing the quantum entanglement of two spatially separated atoms by observing their light emission. This fundamental demonstration could lead to the development of highly sensitive optical gradiometers for the precise measurement of the gravitational field or the earth's magnetic field.
The age of quantum technology has long been heralded. Decades of research into the quantum world have led to the development of methods that make it possible...
