Announcement of the International Dresden Barkhausen Award 2013

11.07.2013
The 'International Dresden Barkhausen Award' is granted for outstanding scientific results in applied research and development at frontier areas between physics, materials science, and electrical engineering. Research results shall either open new potential applications or are already applied in recent products.

Heinrich Barkhausen worked as a Professor of Electrical Engineering at the Technical College of Dresden from 1911 to 1953. As the head of the Institute for Weak-Current Engineering he achieved groundbreaking results in Communications Engineering and basic research in the field of electron tube technology. He gained international reputation for discovering the Barkhausen Noise Effect.

In appreciation of his achievements the Materials Research Network Dresden (MFD), Fraunhofer IZFP Dresden branch, and TU Dresden present the International Dresden Barkhausen Award for the eighth time. A grant of 10,000 € will be assigned.

Applications shall contain an explanatory statement of maximum three pages and a brief C.V. of the candidate. This shall show evidence for:
1. Major scientific results including references.
2. Outstanding achievements in transferring results to products with documentation showing the degree of involvement of the candidate.

3. Success in teaching at universities, student advising and / or training professionals.

Submission deadline for applications and proposals: 08/31/2013

Submissions should be sent to: Materialforschungsverbund Dresden (MFD) e. V., c/o IFW, PF 27 01 16, 01171 Dresden – and by e-mail to: info@mfd-dresden.de

Im Focus: Long-lived storage of a photonic qubit for worldwide teleportation

MPQ scientists achieve long storage times for photonic quantum bits which break the lower bound for direct teleportation in a global quantum network.

Concerning the development of quantum memories for the realization of global quantum networks, scientists of the Quantum Dynamics Division led by Professor...

Im Focus: Electromagnetic water cloak eliminates drag and wake

Detailed calculations show water cloaks are feasible with today's technology

Researchers have developed a water cloaking concept based on electromagnetic forces that could eliminate an object's wake, greatly reducing its drag while...

Im Focus: Scientists channel graphene to understand filtration and ion transport into cells

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.

To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...

Im Focus: Towards data storage at the single molecule level

The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.

Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...

Im Focus: Successful Mechanical Testing of Nanowires

With innovative experiments, researchers at the Helmholtz-Zentrums Geesthacht and the Technical University Hamburg unravel why tiny metallic structures are extremely strong

Light-weight and simultaneously strong – porous metallic nanomaterials promise interesting applications as, for instance, for future aeroplanes with enhanced...
