ResearchSEA has partnered with Helium.com to bring you the ResearchSEA – Asia Research News Citizen Journalism Awards. This essay contest is open until 30 May 2008. The winner will be awarded a cash prize of US$125. All ResearchSEA members are invited to take part.
To raise the profile of research issues in Asia, ResearchSEA has partnered with Helium to bring you the ResearchSEA – Asia Research News Citizen Journalism Awards.
The essay title is: Feeding the poor today and everyone on the planet tomorrow: What are the issues, and what can be done to avert a global food crisis?
Write a unique article in 1,000 words or less. Essays should be newsworthy, written in nonspecialist language and contain minimal research jargon. All references must be attributed. Where possible, the articles should highlight research conducted in or about Asia.
The winning writer will receive a ResearchSEA – Asia Research News Citizen Journalism Award and a cash prize of $125 and featured on ResearchSEA’s website and in email newsletters which are read by thousands of editors, journalists and public members around the world.
This contest will remain active through Friday, May 30, at noon. All ResearchSEA members are invited to take part.

A newly developed laser technology has enabled physicists in the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (jointly run by LMU Munich and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics) to generate attosecond bursts of high-energy photons of unprecedented intensity. This has made it possible to observe the interaction of multiple photons in a single such pulse with electrons in the inner orbital shell of an atom.
In order to observe the ultrafast electron motion in the inner shells of atoms with short light pulses, the pulses must not only be ultrashort, but very...
A group of researchers led by Andrea Cavalleri at the Max Planck Institute for Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) in Hamburg has demonstrated a new method enabling precise measurements of the interatomic forces that hold crystalline solids together. The paper Probing the Interatomic Potential of Solids by Strong-Field Nonlinear Phononics, published online in Nature, explains how a terahertz-frequency laser pulse can drive very large deformations of the crystal.
By measuring the highly unusual atomic trajectories under extreme electromagnetic transients, the MPSD group could reconstruct how rigid the atomic bonds are...
Quantum computers may one day solve algorithmic problems which even the biggest supercomputers today can’t manage. But how do you test a quantum computer to...
For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.
In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...
