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.

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...
Breakthrough provides a new concept of the design of molecular motors, sensors and electricity generators at nanoscale

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.
But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...
Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.
The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters
Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
