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: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
