Invitation to the Micro B3 Final Conference from 2 to 4 November 2015
Royal Flemish Academy for Science and the Arts,
Hertogsstraat/Rue Ducale 1, B-1000 Brussels (Belgium)
Micro B3 is a large integrative European Project, which is processing large amounts of data from worldwide marine research campaigns with modern bioinformatic methods.
This instigated a new understanding of the diversity of marine plankton. In cooperation with biotechnologists novel opportunities are explored, how to utilize these small organisms while safeguarding marine resources.
Furthermore, Micro B3 developed international standards to enable the trans-disciplinary use of a range of different existing databases. These standards were mainly tested during the ‘Ocean Sampling Days’ (OSD), a Micro B3-initiated activity joining scientists and interested citizens worldwide.
The Micro B3 project includes 32 Partner from 14 European countries and the international organisations EMBL-EBI, ICES, IUCN and CIESM.

Physicists from the University of Würzburg have designed a light source that emits photon pairs. Two-photon sources are particularly well suited for tap-proof data encryption. The experiment's key ingredients: a semiconductor crystal and some sticky tape.
So-called monolayers are at the heart of the research activities. These "super materials" (as the prestigious science magazine "Nature" puts it) have been...
Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.
This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...
Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion
Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...
Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.
"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...
In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.
A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...
