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: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
