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: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
