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: In best circles: First integrated circuit from self-assembled polymer

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.

In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...

Im Focus: Demonstration of a single molecule piezoelectric effect

Breakthrough provides a new concept of the design of molecular motors, sensors and electricity generators at nanoscale

Im Focus: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.

But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...

Im Focus: Stem cell divisions in the adult brain seen for the first time

Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.

The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...

Im Focus: Interference as a new method for cooling quantum devices

Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters

Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
