Professor Alexander Michaelis receives Bridge Building Award

26.01.2012
Prof. Alexander Michaelis, director of the Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS, was awarded the ACerS Bridge Building Award at the 36th International Conference and Exposition on Advanced Ceramics and Composites (ICACC) in Daytona Beach in the end of January. With more than 1,100 participants from more than 50 countries, this conference is one of the most important international events in the field of advanced ceramics.
The Bridge Building Award, which is annually awarded by the American Ceramic Society, recognizes individuals who have made outstanding contributions to engineering ceramics and thus significantly contributed to the visibility of the field and international advocacy.

The work of Prof. Alexander Michaelis and his teams covers all aspects of advanced ceramics from preliminary basic research to application. The focus is on the development and application of modern advanced ceramic materials, the development of industrial powder metallurgical technologies, and the manufacturing of prototypical components.

Structural ceramics, functional ceramics and cermets are the main topics with emphasis on innovative complex systems which are applied in many industry sectors. The award, in particular, recognizes the Michaelis’ contribution in the field of energy and environmental technology.

The 48-year-old scientist and university professor, who has already won several awards, has been a member of the World Academy of Ceramics (WAC) since 2010. Furthermore, Prof. Alexander Michaelis is organizer of several international conferences.

Under his chairmanship, for example, the 10th International Symposium on Ceramic Materials and Components for Energy and Environmental Applications (CMCEE) will take place in Dresden from May 20-23, 2012. The program of the 10th CMCEE comprises more than 350 papers and 80 posters. Authors from 44 countries will present their latest work in 14 conference sessions. Please find the current program on: www.cmcee12.de.

Im Focus: First evidence on the source of extragalactic particles

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.

To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...

Im Focus: Magnetic vortices: Two independent magnetic skyrmion phases discovered in a single material

For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.

Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...

Im Focus: Breaking the bond: To take part or not?

Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.

A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...

Im Focus: New 2D Spectroscopy Methods

Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.

"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....

Im Focus: Chemical reactions in the light of ultrashort X-ray pulses from free-electron lasers

Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.

Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
