Are you exceptionally creative when it comes to technology? Or do you know a woman that is? Britain’s top creative women will be celebrated at the upcoming 7th Annual British Female Inventors and Innovators Awards Ceremony in London on 21 February 2006.
There is a special award category aimed at Information Technology, Electronics and Communication (ITEC). This category was set up by the European funded project Equalitec - Advancing women in ITEC and aims to promote innovative solutions developed by women such as improvements in the ways in which data can be collected, managed, analysed and presented as part of work and decision-making.
Women have made a significant creative contribution to ITEC, which has not always been given the recognition it deserves. Their ideas and experience can bring new perspective on the directions in which ITEC technologies can advance and how they can be used. Elizabeth Pollitzer, Director of the Equalitec Project said “we aim to encourage women to apply their innovative and inventive capabilities in ITEC and related areas, and to celebrate their contributions by creating this new ITEC Award. I would urge as many women as possible to enter, and gain recognition for the excellent work they do”.

DNA molecules that follow specific instructions could offer more precise molecular control of synthetic chemical systems, a discovery that opens the door for engineers to create molecular machines with new and complex behaviors.
Researchers have created chemical amplifiers and a chemical oscillator using a systematic method that has the potential to embed sophisticated circuit...
MPQ scientists achieve long storage times for photonic quantum bits which break the lower bound for direct teleportation in a global quantum network.
Concerning the development of quantum memories for the realization of global quantum networks, scientists of the Quantum Dynamics Division led by Professor...
Researchers have developed a water cloaking concept based on electromagnetic forces that could eliminate an object's wake, greatly reducing its drag while...
Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.
To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...
The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.
Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
