Clearstream began 2005 with growth in its core businesses and new business streams continuing progress made in 2004. The value of assets held in custody on behalf of customers rose to approximately EUR 7.7 trillion, a rise of 2.5 percent from the same month last year. The number of international transactions processed by Clearstream stood at 1.5 million for January 2005 compared to 1.7 million for the same month last year. Of these transactions, 15 percent are registered as stock exchange transactions, 85 percent were Over the Counter (OTC) transactions. For domestic settlement transactions in Germany, the figure for the month stood at 2.6 million representing a decrease of 23 percent due to central counterparty efficiencies (January 2004: 3.5 million). The ratio for domestic settlement transactions was 66 percent stock exchange transactions to 34 percent OTC transactions.
Within the Global Securities Financing services business at Clearstream strong growth continued with the monthly average outstandings reaching EUR 140 billion. The combined services include tripartite repo, securities lending and collateral management and collectively experienced a rise of over 29.4 percent from the same month last year (January 2004: EUR 108.2 billion).
In January, Clearstream launched an enhanced version of its investment funds service called Vestima+. The improved investment funds service showed further volume increases with the number of investment funds related instructions processed reaching 165,795 in January 2005, a rise of 24.2 percent from the same month last year (January 2004: 133,464).

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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
