eco publishes the largest international study of the Domain Industry

- Registrar Atlas compares the Domain Industry in 8 different markets
- Study available free of charge at

The Association of the German Internet Industry, eco (, is releasing its Registrar Atlas 2013 just in time for the start of the new generic Top Level Domains (gTLDs). In the third edition of the largest international study of the Domain Industry, eco has investigated the chances of success the domain providers of the new gTLDs like .web, .blog or .mail will have.

Lawyer Thomas Rickert, Director of the Competence Group Names and Numbers in the eco Association, is convinced: "Good domains are already like an address on Park Avenue. With the introduction of the new gTLDs, a lot of new virtual properties in top locations will be created."

For the Registrar Atlas, companies providing domain names in 8 countries were surveyed - with the support of local partners. Alongside the German-speaking countries (the D-A-CH region) and the Netherlands, for the first time France, Great Britain, Bulgaria and Russia were included. "The Registrar Atlas is growing from year to year, and shows how the companies of the domain industry are distributed, what the similarities and differences of the markets are, and what the trends are," said Rickert. According to the study, the new geographical expansions like .moscow and .nyc and generic endings like .radio or .sport can expect especially high popularity. Well over a third (37%) of German domain providers rate the new gTLDs with (...).

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...

Im Focus: New Products - Highlights of COMPAMED 2016

COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.

In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...

Im Focus: Ultra-thin ferroelectric material for next-generation electronics

'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.

Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
