3rd Euro Bio-inspired - International Conference and Exhibition on Bio-inspired Materials

23.07.2015

Based on the successful events held in 2012 and 2014 in Potsdam the scope of this conference is to provide an interdisciplinary platform for the discussion of novel developments and trends in the field of bio-inspired materials research. The 3rd Euro Bio-inspired will take place from 22 - 25 February 2016 in Potsdam, Germany.

Accordingly, the whole spectrum of biological materials will be covered. Topics will encompass the formation mechanisms as well as the characterization of complex-shaped and hierarchically structured multifunctional materials present in living nature.

Based on this, a further key topic will be the consideration of these architectures as archetypes for the generation of novel functional materials with an expanded property spectrum. Contributions with regard to materials synthesis and design inspired by biological principles and structures are invited.

Bio-inspired materials based on organic and/or inorganic phases including their mechanical, optical, electronic and magnetic properties as well as actuated systems shall be treated.

The conference will also be dedicated to materials, which display their function in contact with biological systems, e. g. tissues. In addition to that, theoretical modelling of the formation, structure and properties of biological and bio-inspired materials will play a main role.

The program will comprise several invited plenary lectures as well as oral and poster presentations. A session related to the priority program 1420 (Biomimetic Materials Research: Functionality by Hierarchical Structuring of Materials) of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft will be included.


Moreover, the conference will accommodate a Winter School of the Priority Program 1569 (Generation of Multifunctional Inorganic Materials by Molecular Bionics).

The deadline for submitting abstracts is 5th November 2015.
An exhibition will be run throughout the whole conference.

Im Focus: Light-induced superconductivity under high pressure

A team of scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg investigated optically-induced superconductivity in the alkali-doped fulleride K3C60under high external pressures. This study allowed, on one hand, to uniquely assess the nature of the transient state as a superconducting phase. In addition, it unveiled the possibility to induce superconductivity in K3C60 at temperatures far above the -170 degrees Celsius hypothesized previously, and rather all the way to room temperature. The paper by Cantaluppi et al has been published in Nature Physics.

Unlike ordinary metals, superconductors have the unique capability of transporting electrical currents without any loss. Nowadays, their technological...
