The Peace Research Institute Frankfurt (PRIF) invites submissions for the Ernst-Otto Czempiel Award for peace research. The award, in honour of the former director of PRIF, is endowed with 5,000 Euros and will be given for the best postdoctoral monograph published in the field of peace research in 2010 or 2011. Book versions of Ph.D. theses and books by authors of the age of 45 or older at the date of publication are excluded.
Nominations and self-nominations are possible. Every nomination should contain the name, full address and e-mail address of the author and the title of the book. In the case of self-nomination, the application should in addition contain a CV, a list of publications, and a copy of the book (if possible in electronic form). The nomination deadline is 30 April 2012.
The winner will be selected by a jury consisting of Prof. Dr Eva Senghaas-Knobloch, Prof. Dr Dirk Messner and Prof. Dr Harald Müller. The award ceremony will take place during PRIF’s Annual Conference, on 23 November 2012, in Frankfurt/Germany.

The Potsdam Echelle Polarimetric and Spectroscopic Instrument (PEPSI) at the Large Binocular Telescope (LBT) in Arizona released its first image of the surface magnetic field of another star. In a paper in the European journal Astronomy & Astrophysics, the PEPSI team presents a Zeeman- Doppler-Image of the surface of the magnetically active star II Pegasi.
A special technique allows astronomers to resolve the surfaces of faraway stars. Those are otherwise only seen as point sources, even in the largest telescopes...
Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, have proposed a way to create a completely new source of radiation. Ultra-intense light pulses consist of the motion of a single wave and can be described as a tsunami of light. The strong wave can be used to study interactions between matter and light in a unique way. Their research is now published in the scientific journal Physical Review Letters.
"This source of radiation lets us look at reality through a new angle - it is like twisting a mirror and discovering something completely different," says...
New research group at the University of Jena combines theory and experiment to demonstrate for the first time certain physical processes in a quantum vacuum
For most people, a vacuum is an empty space. Quantum physics, on the other hand, assumes that even in this lowest-energy state, particles and antiparticles...
