UDE at the CeBIT fair: Protecting huge National Parks

Closely observing and protecting huge national parks – the PLANET project led by engineering scientist Prof. Dr. Pedro José Marrón of the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE) makes it possible. Marón is currently presenting the project at this year's CeBIT fair in Hanover.
“The original idea for PLANET came to me as I was working on other EU projects” mentioned its founder and coordinator Marrón. He had a particular interest in... 07.03.2012 | nachricht Read more

Cebit: Automated stress testing for Web 2.0 applications helps developers find programming errors

Web applications such as Google Mail, Facebook and Amazon are used every day.
However, so far there are no methods to test them systematically and at low cost for malfunctions and security vulnerabilities. Therefore, computer scientists... 27.02.2012 | nachricht Read more

Cebit 2012: The wireless bicycle brake, a prototype on an exciting mission

At this time, wireless networks are able to brake just one bike, but in the future, the technical elements will be further developed to regulate entire trains as they travel over the lines.
In view of that fact, computer scientists at Saarland University are designing mathematical calculations to check such systems automatically. The scientists... 24.02.2012 | nachricht Read more

Cebit 2012 – Internet service prevents cable tangle in presentations at conferences and trade shows

To connect a laptop to an additional monitor, projector or even to a monitor wall, a special cable was required, until now.
Researchers of the Saarland University’s Intel Visual Computing Institute overcome this obstacle by linking computer and monitor via an ‘Internet Service’. By... 23.02.2012 | nachricht Read more

Cebit 2012: Interactive 3D graphical objects as an integral part of online shops

When customers visit an online shop, they want to see all parts of a product; they want to enlarge it, or visualize adjusting single elements.
Until now, web developers have been dealing with a multiplicity of different programs, in order to illustrate articles on the Internet in such a complex way.

The new HTML extension XML3D, which offers the capability to describe computer scenes in spatial detail directly within the website’s code, simplifies that. An online shop can be extended with XML3D in just a few clicks, as researchers of the Saarland University’s Intel Visual Computing Institute demonstrate at stand F34 in hall 9 at the computer fair Cebit.... 22.02.2012 | nachricht Read more

Cebit 2012: Intelligent software assigns appropriate background music for pictures

Previously, setting a picture or whole series of pictures to suitable music required expert knowledge and a great deal of time.
Newly developed software called Picasso succeeds in arranging pictures with appropriate compositions in an instant, by utilizing the technical skills of movie... 16.02.2012 | nachricht Read more

UBIFRANCE takes 20 French innovators to CeBIT 2012

UBIFRANCE, the French export-support agency, will present 20 companies at CeBIT, where they will showcase their innovative digital products on the French pavilion. The trade show is the digital industry's biggest event and will take place in Hanover (Germany), from 6 to 10 March 2012.
UBIFRANCE will group together the French companies in two areas during the CeBIT trade show in March. Companies focused on new technology and research will be... 10.02.2012 | nachricht Read more

Artguardian: Watchman for artworks

A publicly displayed object of art experiences a lot: dazzling light, unfavorable temperatures or too much moisture. With ‘Artguardian’ Fraunhofer researchers have developed a fully automated, intelligent monitoring system helping art lovers to optimally preserve their objects of art. Thanks to sensitive sensors they can be exhibited under the best conditions. The solution will be presented from 6th to 10th March at the CeBIT 2012 (hall 9, booth E08).

There are an estimated 150 million works of art in the market today – in museums, public spaces and in the holdings of private collectors. Not only because of... 30.01.2012 | nachricht Read more

Apps for day-to-day work

Games, e-mails and around-the-clock Internet access – smartphones are making the information culture an even more prominent part of everyday life.
Businesses and employers are also increasingly relying on mobile companions with apps developed expressly for the task at hand. In the future, for instance,... 30.01.2012 | nachricht Read more

Im Focus: Etching Microstructures with Lasers

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.

This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Im Focus: Light-driven atomic rotations excite magnetic waves

Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
