Micro- and nanotechnology companies in Germany are successful players on global markets. IVAM Research has now compiled the activities in these areas in Germany in a comprehensive survey. The “Micro/Nano Atlas of Germany“ has first been presented to the public during the annual summit of the international microtechnology community, the Micromachine Summit 2010, which took place in Dortmund at the end of April.
The “Micro/Nano Atlas of Germany” gives a complete and unique overview over the micro- and nanotechnology industry in Germany, including research activities and priorities in six federal states and 38 regional clusters. In addition, the survey describes the federal funding policy, market and application trends, and the current economic situation of the German micro- and nanotechnology industry. IVAM managing director Uwe Kleinkes is going to present the survey in the USA and Japan, at the conference Metric in San José, California this week, and during the exhibition and conference Micromachine/MEMS in Tokyo at the end of July.
The “Micro/Nano Atlas of Germany” is available from IVAM Research. As a supplement to the survey, IVAM Research offers a comprehensive database of micro- and nanotechnology companies and research institutions.

For the first time ever, a cloud of ultra-cold atoms has been successfully created in space on board of a sounding rocket. The MAIUS mission demonstrates that quantum optical sensors can be operated even in harsh environments like space – a prerequi-site for finding answers to the most challenging questions of fundamental physics and an important innovation driver for everyday applications.
According to Albert Einstein's Equivalence Principle, all bodies are accelerated at the same rate by the Earth's gravity, regardless of their properties. This...

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
