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.

Physicists from the University of Würzburg have designed a light source that emits photon pairs. Two-photon sources are particularly well suited for tap-proof data encryption. The experiment's key ingredients: a semiconductor crystal and some sticky tape.
So-called monolayers are at the heart of the research activities. These "super materials" (as the prestigious science magazine "Nature" puts it) have been...
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...

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...
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...
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...
