Call for nominations for the Alwin Mittasch Prize for Catalysis Research

22.09.2011
Nominations are requested for the Alwin Mittasch Prize 2012 which is awarded to international scientists who have made outstanding contributions towards extending the fundamentals of catalysis and its exemplary industrial application. The Prize is endowed with 10,000 Euro and sponsored by BASF SE; it is awarded every three years.

The nominations are evaluated by an experts committee comprised of members from academia and industry. The award ceremony will take place during the Interna-tional Congress of Catalysis 2012 in Munich.

Nominations should be submitted before November 15th, 2011, to DECHEMA, c/o Prof. Kurt Wagemann, Theodor-Heuss-Allee 25, 60486 Frankfurt. Besides a detailed justification of the proposal, the candidate's CV and list of publications and patents should be included. Submission of exemplary publications in internationally renowned scientific journals as well as references letters from industry is also appreciated. Self-nominations are not accepted.

The Alwin Mittasch Prize was initiated by BASF AG in 1990, originally as the Alwin Mittasch Medal. It is named after the developer of the first catalyst for ammonia syn-thesis. Former prize-winners include Prof. Dr. Gerhard Ertl, Fritz-Haber-Institut der Max-Planck-Gesellschaft (1990), Prof. Dr. Wilhelm Keim, RWTH Aachen (1998), Prof. Dr. Jens Weitkamp, Universität Stuttgart and Prof. Dr. Jens. K. Norskov, Universität Lyngby (both 2009); a complete list is available online on http://www.dechema.de/index.php?id=78834&nonactive=1&lang=de.

Im Focus: Temperature-controlled fiber-optic light source with liquid core

In a recent publication in the renowned journal Optica, scientists of Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz IPHT) in Jena showed that they can accurately control the optical properties of liquid-core fiber lasers and therefore their spectral band width by temperature and pressure tuning.

Already last year, the researchers provided experimental proof of a new dynamic of hybrid solitons– temporally and spectrally stationary light waves resulting...

Im Focus: AchemAsia 2019 will take place in Shanghai

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.

Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...

Im Focus: First real-time test of Li-Fi utilization for the industrial Internet of Things

The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.

Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.

Im Focus: Sharp images with flexible fibers

An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.

Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...
