The Association of the German Internet Industry, eco (http://international.eco.de), 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 (...).

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...
Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...
A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
