January 3, 2017 (HP120). Three scientific societies, the American Physical Society (APS), the Material Research Society (MRS) and the American Chemical Society (APS) issued jointly a science policy report “The U.S. Research Community’s Liquid Helium Crisis: An Action Plan to Preserve U.S. Innovation”.
December 15, 2016 (A370). Applications for the 2017 IEEE CSC Graduate Study Fellowship in Applied Superconductivity opened on November 1, 2016, and will be accepted until January 15, 2017.
The fellowship is awarded annually to a current full-time graduate student pursuing a Ph.D. (or equivalent) degree in the area of applied superconductivity, at an accredited college or university of recognized standing worldwide. The intention of the award is to encourage students to enter and contribute to the field of applied superconductivity.
December 08, 2016 (A368). The 2nd International Workshop: Towards Room Temperature Superconductivity - SUPERHYDRIDES and MORE will be held in Orange, CA, USA, from May 08-09, 2017.
December 5, 2016 (A367). The Research Center Juelich (FZJ), Germany, organizes the 48th IFF Spring School on the topic of “Topological Insulators, Skyrmions, and Majoranas”. Lectures will start on Monday, March 27th and end on April 7th in the afternoon. The School intends to attract graduate students, young scientists and other professionals desiring to familiarize themselves with the topic in a relatively systematic manner.
December 5, 2016 (A366). On November 28, 2016, the U.S. Department of Energy announced nearly $25 million for 13 projects aimed at advancing technologies for energy-efficient electric motors through applied research and development. The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy’s (EERE) Next Generation Electric Machines projects will address the limitations of traditional materials and designs used in electric motor components by cost-effectively enhancing their efficiency, improving their performance, and reducing weight. This effort will support innovative approaches that will significantly improve the technology in industrial electric motors, which use approximately 70 percent of the electricity consumed by U.S. manufacturers and nearly a quarter of all electricity consumed nationally.
