Aerosol researcher from Mainz again honored

22.10.2014

Manabu Shiraiwa from the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry will be awarded the Sheldon K. Friedlander Award.

On 23 October 2014 Manabu Shiraiwa will be awarded the Sheldon K. Friedlander Award at this year's conference of the American Association for Aerosol Research in Florida.

The 31-year-old researcher has made path-breaking insights into the influence of aerosol particles on air quality and health.

Originally from Japan, Shiraiwa convinced the jury with his disseration on the kinetics and molecular mechanisms of chemical reactions of aerosol particles.

He discovered that long-lived oxygen intermediates are formed in the reaction of ozone with aerosol particles. These intermediates play a key role in the chemical aging of toxic and allergenic fine dust components such as soot, polycyclic-aromatic hydrocarbons and pollen proteins.

In 2012 Shiraiwa received the Paul-Crutzen Prize of the German Chemical Society and the Otto Hahn Medal of the Max Planck Society, one of the highest honors for a young scientist to receive at the beginning of his career.

After completing his doctoral degree at the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry, he worked as a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Biogeochemistry at the same institute and then at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena (USA).

Shiraiwa has been doing research again at the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry since 2013 - now as a group leader in the Department of Multiphase Chemistry.

The Sheldon K. Friedlander Award is awarded annually by the American Association for Aerosol Research (AAAR) for outstanding dissertations in a field of aerosol science and technology.

Im Focus: Researchers develop method to transfer entire 2D circuits to any smooth surface

What if a sensor sensing a thing could be part of the thing itself? Rice University engineers believe they have a two-dimensional solution to do just that.

Rice engineers led by materials scientists Pulickel Ajayan and Jun Lou have developed a method to make atom-flat sensors that seamlessly integrate with devices...

Im Focus: Three components on one chip

Scientists at the University of Stuttgart and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) succeed in important further development on the way to quantum Computers.

Quantum computers one day should be able to solve certain computing problems much faster than a classical computer. One of the most promising approaches is...

Im Focus: Substitute for rare earth metal oxides

New Project SNAPSTER: Novel luminescent materials by encapsulating phosphorescent metal clusters with organic liquid crystals

Nowadays energy conversion in lighting and optoelectronic devices requires the use of rare earth oxides.

Im Focus: A bit of a stretch... material that thickens as it's pulled

Scientists have discovered the first synthetic material that becomes thicker - at the molecular level - as it is stretched.

Researchers led by Dr Devesh Mistry from the University of Leeds discovered a new non-porous material that has unique and inherent "auxetic" stretching...

Im Focus: The force of the vacuum

Scientists from the Theory Department of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science (CFEL) in Hamburg have shown through theoretical calculations and computer simulations that the force between electrons and lattice distortions in an atomically thin two-dimensional superconductor can be controlled with virtual photons. This could aid the development of new superconductors for energy-saving devices and many other technical applications.

The vacuum is not empty. It may sound like magic to laypeople but it has occupied physicists since the birth of quantum mechanics.
