AGU Seeks Nominations for Sullivan and Perlman Journalism Awards 2010

11.11.2009
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 (http://www.agu.org/meetings/fm09/). 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 http://www.agu.org/sci_soc/sci_awards.html#Eligibility_and_submission_requirements (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: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Shape matters when light meets atom

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
