Book versions of Ph.D. theses and books by authors of the age of 45 or older at the date of publication are excluded.
The Peace Research Institute Frankfurt (PRIF) invites submissions for the Ernst-Otto Czempiel Award for peace research. The award, in honour of the former director of PRIF, is endowed with 5,000.- euros and will be given for the best postdoctoral monograph published in the field of peace research in 2008 or 2009. Book versions of Ph.D. theses and books by authors of the age of 45 or older at the date of publication are excluded.
Nominations and self-nominations are possible. Every nomination should contain the name, full address and e-mail address of the author and the title of the book. In the case of self-nomination, the application should in addition contain a CV, a list of publications, and a copy of the book. The nomination deadline is 31 May 2010.
The winner will be selected by a jury consisting of Prof. Dr Eva Senghaas-Knobloch, Prof. Dr Dirk Messner and Prof. Dr Harald Mueller. The award ceremony will take place during PRIF's Annual Conference, on 22/23 October 2010, in Frankfurt/Germany.

Physicists working with researcher Oriol Romero-Isart devised a new simple scheme to theoretically generate arbitrarily short and focused electromagnetic fields. This new tool could be used for precise sensing and in microscopy.
Microwaves, heat radiation, light and X-radiation are examples for electromagnetic waves. Many applications require to focus the electromagnetic fields to...
Strong light-matter coupling in these semiconducting tubes may hold the key to electrically pumped lasers
Light-matter quasi-particles can be generated electrically in semiconducting carbon nanotubes. Material scientists and physicists from Heidelberg University...
Fraunhofer IPA has developed a proximity sensor made from silicone and carbon nanotubes (CNT) which detects objects and determines their position. The materials and printing process used mean that the sensor is extremely flexible, economical and can be used for large surfaces. Industry and research partners can use and further develop this innovation straight away.
At first glance, the proximity sensor appears to be nothing special: a thin, elastic layer of silicone onto which black square surfaces are printed, but these...
3-D shape acquisition using water displacement as the shape sensor for the reconstruction of complex objects
A global team of computer scientists and engineers have developed an innovative technique that more completely reconstructs challenging 3D objects. An ancient...
Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.
For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...
