Professor Alexander Michaelis receives Bridge Building Award

26.01.2012
Prof. Alexander Michaelis, director of the Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS, was awarded the ACerS Bridge Building Award at the 36th International Conference and Exposition on Advanced Ceramics and Composites (ICACC) in Daytona Beach in the end of January. With more than 1,100 participants from more than 50 countries, this conference is one of the most important international events in the field of advanced ceramics.
The Bridge Building Award, which is annually awarded by the American Ceramic Society, recognizes individuals who have made outstanding contributions to engineering ceramics and thus significantly contributed to the visibility of the field and international advocacy.

The work of Prof. Alexander Michaelis and his teams covers all aspects of advanced ceramics from preliminary basic research to application. The focus is on the development and application of modern advanced ceramic materials, the development of industrial powder metallurgical technologies, and the manufacturing of prototypical components.

Structural ceramics, functional ceramics and cermets are the main topics with emphasis on innovative complex systems which are applied in many industry sectors. The award, in particular, recognizes the Michaelis’ contribution in the field of energy and environmental technology.

The 48-year-old scientist and university professor, who has already won several awards, has been a member of the World Academy of Ceramics (WAC) since 2010. Furthermore, Prof. Alexander Michaelis is organizer of several international conferences.

Under his chairmanship, for example, the 10th International Symposium on Ceramic Materials and Components for Energy and Environmental Applications (CMCEE) will take place in Dresden from May 20-23, 2012. The program of the 10th CMCEE comprises more than 350 papers and 80 posters. Authors from 44 countries will present their latest work in 14 conference sessions. Please find the current program on: www.cmcee12.de.

Im Focus: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
