Humboldt Research Award goes to Materials Scientist Professor Roger Reed

17.12.2012
Professor Dierk Raabe, chief executive of the Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung (Max Planck Institute for Iron Research), successfully nominated jointly with Professor Eggeler from the Ruhr University Bochum (both in Germany) Professor Roger C. Reed for this year’s Humboldt Research Award granted by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.

Professor Roger C. Reed, currently at the University of Oxford (UK), is a world-leading materials scientist specialized in high temperature materials and nickel-based superalloys as used for jet engines and power generation applications.

During his research career of twenty years Reed’s major research topics are in the fields of deformation mechanisms in single crystal superalloys under creep and thermal-mechanical fatigue conditions; the analyses of phase transitions and oxidation reactions and quantitative approaches for process modelling for example for models of welding and forging.

The Max-Planck-Institut in Düsseldorf will host Professor Reed for his further research on advanced superalloys from the beginning of March 2013.

The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation yearly awards outstanding international researchers with the Humboldt Research Award. This award comes with a prize money of 60 000 Euros.

The awardees have to be scientists from outside Germany and are characterized by their innovative and trendsetting work in their respective research field.

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
