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 in Hall 9, and hardware specialists will be in Hall 14.

A wide range of products will be exhibited, including those relating to business IT, business communications and networks, ICT infrastructure, IT and telecoms accessories, Future Internet, and 3D technologies. This year, CeBIT takes place in Hanover (in northern Germany) from 6 to 10 March.

According to the European Information Technology Observatory (EITO), worldwide IT expenditure is experiencing substantial growth rates in emerging countries and should have risen by 4.3% in 2011, reaching €963.4 billion. In Europe, Germany stands out, as it exceeded the European average and experienced a significant increase in expenditure, up by 4.3% in 2011, while France enjoyed a 3.4% increase.

The EITO highlights the substantial upsurge — by 4.2% — in the French infrastructure software segment in 2011. This trend is expected to continue in 2012, with a forecasted 4.8% rise. The growth in this segment is primarily the result of rising sales in storage-and-security applications, boosted by the proliferation of Cloud Computing offers.

Also according to the EITO, the worldwide IT market in 2012 will grow by 5.4%, exceeding €1,000 billion in sales for the first time.

Im Focus: Novel light sources made of 2D materials

Physicists from the University of Würzburg have designed a light source that emits photon pairs. Two-photon sources are particularly well suited for tap-proof data encryption. The experiment's key ingredients: a semiconductor crystal and some sticky tape.

So-called monolayers are at the heart of the research activities. These "super materials" (as the prestigious science magazine "Nature" puts it) have been...

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...
