AGU Seeks Nominations for Sullivan and Perlman Journalism Awards

09.09.2008
Science journalists are invited to submit nominations for the American Geophysical Union's 2009 journalism awards, honoring outstanding reporting on Earth and space sciences:
* The Walter Sullivan Award for Excellence in Science Journalism - Features recognizes excellence in reporting, generally produced with deadlines of longer than one week, that explains the background of scientific discoveries or principles.

It is named for Walter Sullivan of The New York Times, first recipient of the award.

* The David Perlman Award for Excellence in Science Journalism - News recognizes excellence in reporting news of scientific advances, generally produced under deadline pressure of one week or less. It is named for David Perlman, Science Editor of the San Francisco Chronicle and 1997 winner of the AGU Award for Sustained Achievement in Science Journalism.

The awards consist of a plaque and a $2,000 stipend, to be presented at an AGU meeting in 2009. Nominations may be submitted for work first published between 1 November 2007 and 31 October 2008 and may be from any country, in any language (English translation required), and in any news medium, except books.

The only authoritative statement of the rules governing these awards is posted at http://www.agu.org/sci_soc/sci_awards.html

(Do not rely on the brief summary in this announcement.)

The deadline is Friday, 14 November 2008. Entries must be received (not
postmarked) by that date to be considered for the awards.

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales

Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
