    team — Two young scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (MPQ) – Dr. Ioachim Pupeza (Laboratory for Attosecond Physics) and Andreas Vernaleken (Laser Spectroscopy Division) – are among the winners of the »Science Award 2012«, which is biannually awarded by the »Stifterverband für die Deutsche Wissenschaft« on nomination of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft. Founded in 1920, Stifterverband is a private non-profit association comprising 3000 companies, organizations, and foundations, as well as private persons. The Science Award is dedicated to outstanding joint projects, in which Fraunhofer institutes collaborate with other research institutions. One of this year’s award winning projects is KORONA, a collaboration of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT (Aachen), the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching) and the Rheinisch-Westfälische Technische Hochschule (RWTH) Aachen dedicated to the development of a powerful and compact source for coherent electromagnetic radiation in the extreme ultraviolet spectral region (EUV). The contributing industrial partners were JENOPTIK Laser GmbH, EdgeWave GmbH, and AMPHOS GmbH
