European Society of Radiology: Innovation award for Siemens

At the European Congress of Radiology (ECR) 2009, this year's "Exhibit Europe Award" went to Siemens Healthcare.

Each year the European Society of Radiology (ESR) honors one of the companies exhibiting at the Congress with this award in recognition of its special innovative strengths in science and technology as well as its high commitment to patient care and research.

Furthermore, the ESR thus also recognizes the award recipient's exceptional commitment to the goals and advancement of the ECR.

The Congress President, Professor Borut Marincek, presented the award to Dr. Bernd Montag, Chief Executive Officer Imaging & IT Division, Siemens Healthcare Sector. "This award from the European Society of Radiology fills us with great pride. Since we consider the ECR to be one of the most important congresses for radiology, we will also gladly continue to support the ESR in the development of new concepts", said Dr. Bernd Montag.

"Recently we received from Siemens Healthcare the commitment to contribute to the further education activities of the ECR. As the first exhibiting company, Siemens will be placing training materials in the ECR Digital Preview System, also known as EDIPS.

This will provide all ESR members with access to over 1700 scientific presentations on radiological questions contributed by leading experts from around the world", said Professor Borut Marincek.

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...
