EFCE launches 2011 student award

The European Federation of Chemical Engineering is pleased to announce the launch of its 2011 student mobility award.

The biennial award, which will be presented at the 8th European Congress of Chemical Engineering (ECCE) in Berlin, Germany next year, promotes and rewards international mobility amongst European students by rewarding the best international chemical engineering students. Three prizes will be presented during the congress and each consists of a commemorative certificate, cash prize of up to € 2,000, free admission to ECCE and reimbursement of travel expenses.

The award is open to all students who are citizens of an EFCE represented EU country who have studied in another country to their native one for at least one semester in their first or second cycle study programmes in chemical engineering.

Andrew Furlong, Director of Policy and Communications at IChemE (Institution of Chemical Engineers) commended the awards saying:

“The student mobility award is an excellent opportunity to showcase the emerging chemical engineering talent in Europe. I would urge all eligible students and graduates to submit an application for this highly respected award.”

Applications should include the application form, available from the EFCE website: and the following attachments: curriculum vitae, transcript of records or similar documents of all places of study, other proof of academic performance and a one-page essay about the experience of studying in different countries.

All documents should be submitted in English, no later than 2 years after graduation and the deadline for submission of applications is 28 February 2011.

Im Focus: Etching Microstructures with Lasers

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.

This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Im Focus: Light-driven atomic rotations excite magnetic waves

Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...

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...
