Aerosol researcher from Mainz again honored

22.10.2014

Manabu Shiraiwa from the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry will be awarded the Sheldon K. Friedlander Award.

On 23 October 2014 Manabu Shiraiwa will be awarded the Sheldon K. Friedlander Award at this year's conference of the American Association for Aerosol Research in Florida.

The 31-year-old researcher has made path-breaking insights into the influence of aerosol particles on air quality and health.

Originally from Japan, Shiraiwa convinced the jury with his disseration on the kinetics and molecular mechanisms of chemical reactions of aerosol particles.

He discovered that long-lived oxygen intermediates are formed in the reaction of ozone with aerosol particles. These intermediates play a key role in the chemical aging of toxic and allergenic fine dust components such as soot, polycyclic-aromatic hydrocarbons and pollen proteins.

In 2012 Shiraiwa received the Paul-Crutzen Prize of the German Chemical Society and the Otto Hahn Medal of the Max Planck Society, one of the highest honors for a young scientist to receive at the beginning of his career.

After completing his doctoral degree at the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry, he worked as a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Biogeochemistry at the same institute and then at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena (USA).

Shiraiwa has been doing research again at the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry since 2013 - now as a group leader in the Department of Multiphase Chemistry.

The Sheldon K. Friedlander Award is awarded annually by the American Association for Aerosol Research (AAAR) for outstanding dissertations in a field of aerosol science and technology.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
