Winners of "CINF-FIZ Scholarship for Scientific Excellence" 2010 were announced

23.08.2010
FIZ CHEMIE and CINF announced the winners of "CINF- FIZ Scholarship for Scientific Excellence"/ All prizes were awarded to scientists doing research at American universities / The scholarship awards outstanding contributions to the development of Computer-supported chemical information sciences

Rima Hajjo, Qian Zhu and Hao Tang were granted this year's "CINF-FIZ Scholarship for Scientific Excellence". The German-American sponsored prize jointly awarded by FIZ CHEMIE and CINF, the Division of Chemical Information of the American Chemical Society (ACS), honors considerable contributions of graduate and postdoctoral students to the development of computer-supported chemical information sciences. The award is designed to advance computer-aided preparation and the use of chemical knowledge as well as to foster students’ involvement in CINF.

This year’s winners of the German-American sponsored “CINF-FIZ Scholarship for Scientific Excellence” were announced during the 240th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society in Boston, MA, USA. The winners presented their research work in a scientific poster session during the Welcoming Reception of the CINF on Sunday evening.

All statements in this press release which are not of a historical character refer to the future in the sense of U.S. security law. The predictive statements are assumptions which are based on the current state of information and consequently are subject to particular uncertainty factors. Events which actually occur can deviate considerably from those predicted due to many factors, for example as a result of changes in technology, product development or production, market acceptance, costs or prices for products of FIZ CHEMIE and dependence on alliances and partners, approval processes, competition, intellectual property or patent protection and copyrights.

Im Focus: Manipulating Electron Spins Without Loss of Information

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.

For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...

Im Focus: The proton precisely weighted

What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.

To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
