As a way to build on his everlasting impact on the electrochemical industry, The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS) Foundation has established the Vittorio de Nora Prize for Environmental Improvements in Metallurgical Industries through an endowment from the family of de Nora.
The award, offering cash prizes as high as $25,000, was announced Monday, February 16, 2009, at the start of the Aluminum Plenary Session at the TMS 2009 Annual Meeting & Exhibition in San Francisco. This prestigious award recognizes outstanding materials science research and development contributions to the reduction of environmental impacts, particularly greenhouse gas emissions, as applied in global metallurgical industries.
The Vittorio de Nora Prize is aimed at materials scientists and engineers under the age of 40 who have made research contributions to technologies that involve a global impact. It commences in 2010 and will be given as five annual awards with each, except the 2012 award, having a $20,000 cash prize. The 2012 prize will commemorate the centennial anniversary of the birth of de Nora.
That prize will be $25,000. “I am pleased that the de Nora family has chosen to partner with TMS to recognize Vittorio de Nora with a new award,” said TMS President Ray Peterson. “The award recognizes achievement in the area of materials science to reduce environmental impact and greenhouse gas emissions from metallurgical industries. I look forward to the awarding of the prize in the years to come.”
Applications for the Vittorio de Nora Prize for Environmental Improvements in Metallurgical Industries can be obtained through the Professional Honors and Awards section of the TMS home page at www.tms.org. The application and supporting materials can be submitted electronically using the on-line nomination form. Details on the award’s description, requirements, and selection process can also be found in the Professional Honors and Awards section.About Vittorio de Nora

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.
Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...
Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.
"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...
The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.
Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
