AGU Seeks Nominations for Sullivan and Perlman Journalism Awards 2010

Science journalists are invited to submit nominations for the American Geophysical Union's 2010 journalism awards, honoring outstanding reporting on Earth and space sciences.

Starting with these 2010 awards, the deadline for submissions has been moved to early January to attract greater numbers of entries, including stories from the AGU 2009 Fall Meeting, Dec. 14-18, in San Francisco ( The 2010 awards deadline is 8 January 2010.

Nominations are welcome for:

* The Walter Sullivan Award for Excellence in Science Journalism-Features, which recognizes excellence in reporting, generally produced with deadlines of longer than one week, that explains the background of scientific discoveries or principles. It is named for Walter Sullivan of The New York Times, first recipient of the award.

* The David Perlman Award for Excellence in Science Journalism-News, which recognizes excellence in reporting news of scientific advances, generally produced under deadline pressure of one week or less. It is named for David Perlman, Science Editor of the San Francisco Chronicle and 1997 winner of the AGU Award for Sustained Achievement in Science Journalism.

The awards consist of a plaque and a $2,000 stipend, to be presented at an AGU meeting in 2010. Nominations may be submitted for work first published between 1 November 2008 and 31 December 2009 and may be from any country, in any language (English translation required), and in any news medium, except books.

The deadline is Friday, 8 January 2010. This deadline has been changed from previous years.
Entries must be received (not postmarked) by 8 January 2010 to be considered for the awards.

The only authoritative statement of the rules governing these awards (and a link to the nomination form) are posted at (Do not rely on the brief summary in this announcement.)

AGU is a worldwide scientific community that advances, through unselfish cooperation in research, the understanding of the Earth and space for the benefit of humanity.

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...

Im Focus: New Products - Highlights of COMPAMED 2016

COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.

In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...

Im Focus: Ultra-thin ferroelectric material for next-generation electronics

'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.

Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
