Aachen Polymer Optics Days 2014

12.11.2013
International conference, April 8-9, 2014

“Aachen Polymer Optics Days 2014” will be hosted on April 8-9, 2014 by Fraunhofer IPT in cooperation with Fraunhofer ILT and the Institute of Plastics Processing IKV.

The international conference focuses on optical polymer components. Addressees of the event are participants from industry and research who are interested in manufacturing methods and the application potential of optical polymer products. Central to the conference are the following topics:

• Illumination optics
• Light guides
• Imaging optics
• Special optics
“Aachen Polymer Optics Days 2014” will deliver a clearly focused and structured insight into the technological limits of polymer optics. The application-orientated, interdisciplinary presentations will aim to explain developments along the manufacturing process chain of optical polymer components. Acclaimed experts from industry and research will discuss current technologies and will present their ideas for future polymer optics developments.

Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT

The aim of the Fraunhofer IPT is to develop new and optimize existing
solutions through practice-oriented research and development.
The Fraunhofer IPT transfers the results of this R&D directly
into practice in client companies, which come from a wide range
of industries – the automotive industries and its suppliers, especially
tool and die making, as well as fine-mechanics and optical
industries, aerospace industries and machine tool manufacturers.
Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT
The Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT, founded in
1985, is one of the most important contracting research and development
institutes of its sector worldwide. Its experts develop
and optimize laser beam sources and laser processes. In close
cooperation with its clients, it uses laser technology to solve tasks
for production, measurement technology, environment, energy,
medical technology and biotechnology.
Institute of Plastics Processing (IKV) in Industry and the
Skilled Crafts at RWTH Aachen University
The Institute of Plastics Processing (IKV) is one of the biggest institutes
engaged in this field of research. In organisational terms,
IKV is divided up into the four specialist departments of Injection
Moulding, Extrusion and Rubber Technology, Part Design and
Materials Technology, and Composites and Polyurethane Technology.

Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
