In the course of 2003-2004, the Research Council of Norway organised a foresight analysis for Norwegian aquaculture. All in all, more than 70 people took part in a systematic dialogue about the future. The information presented here represents a very brief summary of an exhaustive report containing detailed analyses from the Foresight project: Aquaculture 2020: Transcending the Barriers - As long as...
In the course of 2003-2004, the Research Council of Norway organised a foresight analysis for Norwegian aquaculture. The analysis was carried out in cooperation with Innovation Norway and with professional support from NIFU STEP. A broad-based project group comprising representatives from industry, research and the authorities was responsible for implementation of the process. All in all, more than 70 people took part in a systematic dialogue about the future. In the course of four sessions, a wide variety of perspectives emerged, and key persons from all aspects of the industry as well as from a number of the industrys most significant associated institutions came together in a creative and interesting dialogue about future developments. A report compiled during the process will provide a source of knowledge and inspiration for everyone interested in Norwegian aquaculture or in helping to shape its development.

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.
Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...
In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...
Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...
A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
