The KINGDOM Suite, designed by Seismic Micro-Technology, is a leading industrial software application for the 2D and 3D interpretation of seismic reflection data on the Windows platform that offers advanced visualization and modelling capabilities based on synthetic seismograms. This software has enormous potential for application in graduate and post-graduate education as it allows students to acquire knowledge that is considered essential in the petroleum industry and related services. The software, with a commercial value of $270,000, is leased to the University as part of the Educational Gift Program run by Seismic Micro-Technology.
The KINGDOM Suite will initially be used in the Marine Geology course as part of the Honours Degree in Geology and the doctoral course “Deep-sea sedimentary processes and products” as part of the Earth Sciences and Marine Sciences programs. The software will also be used in the research projects and doctoral theses currently being developed by the Marine Geosciences Research Group for the interpretation of seismic data from continental margins in the Western Mediterranean, the Northwest Atlantic and Antarctica. These projects focus on the study of submarine landslides, deep-sea depositional systems, submarine canyons and channels and deeply submerged carbonate banks, within a framework of seismic and sequential stratigraphy. The availability of the KINGDOM Suite makes the University of Barcelona Marine Geosciences Research Group one of the leading and most innovative European research groups in the field of Marine Geosciences teaching and research.

On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.
We carry smartphones in our pockets, the streets are dotted with semi-autonomous cars, but in the research laboratory experiments are still being designed by...

For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.
Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...
At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.
No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...
Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.
Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
