DECHEMA Gesellschaft für Chemische Technik und Biotechnologie is pleased to invite entries for the tenth award of the Hellmuth Fischer Medal.
Preference is given to scientists, who must have obtained their Ph.D. not earlier than 12 years before the deadline for applications for work that has contributed towards extending or deepening the fundamentals of electrochemistry, corrosion or corrosion protection, or towards their industrial application.
Nominations for candidates should be accompanied by a curriculum vitae, reprints of important publications, a list of publications and a brief statement for the reasons for the nomination (approx. 1 typewritten page).
It is not possible for candidates to nominate themselves.
Nominations should be submitted by February 27, 2015 to:
Prof. Dr. K. Wagemann
P.O.Box 15 01 04
D-60061 Frankfurt am Main
The final decision on the award of the 2015 Hellmuth Fischer Medal lies with the
Selection Committee which is composed of six distinguished scientists. The medal will be presented on the occasion of the 13th International Fischer Symposium which will take place in Lübeck/Germany from 7 – 11 June 2015.
Previous medallists were Prof. Dr. Ulrich Stimming, New York, in 1989,
Prof. Dr. Klaus-Michael Jüttner, Frankfurt am Main, in 1991, Prof. Dr. Roger Charles
Newman, Manchester, in 1994, Dr. Philippe Allongue, Paris, in 1997,
Prof. Dr. R. M. Penner, Irvine USA, in 2000, Prof. Dr. Nongjian Tao, Tempe USA, in 2003, Dr. Anthony Kucernak, London, in 2006, Prof. Dr. Kaspar Andreas Friedrich, Stuttgart, in 2009 and Prof. Dr. Marc T. M. Koper, Leiden, in 2012.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales
Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
