Professor Dr. Stuart Parkin of the IBM Almaden Research Center in San Jose, California, USA has received the 2012 Von Hippel Award from the Materials Research Society (MRS) for his outstanding contributions to interdisciplinary materials research.
The British-American experimental physicist and member of the Gutenberg Research College at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU), was on hand to receive the award at the MRS Fall Meeting on November 28 in Boston. The annual award includes US-$ 10,000.00 in prize money. It is the American society's highest honor.
Stuart Parkin works in the field of spintronics, both in advancing scientific understanding and in technological applications, a field in which Parkin and his research team have contributed many significant discoveries and developments. According to the MRS, Parkin received the Von Hippel Award for his "seminal contributions to research and technology in spintronic materials."
Parkin is an IBM Fellow, the highest technical accolade from IBM, and managing director of the Magnetoelectronics group at the IBM Almaden Research Center. He is also a consulting professor at Stanford University. Stuart Parkin was awarded the Gutenberg Research Award from the Graduate School of Excellence "Materials Science in Mainz" (MAINZ) in 2008. He has collaborated closely since then with scientists and doctoral students in Mainz. In May 2011, he was named a fellow by the Gutenberg Research College in order to strengthen this collaboration.Further information:

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

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...
