The largest German Electric Vehicle Congress was first held in 2009 and is now moving to a place of longstanding and proud tradition - the Haus der Technik in Essen will be organising the 4th German Electric Vehicle Congress on 14th and 15th January 2012 in cooperation with nova-Institute.
After three successful years, the leading German congress for innovations, concepts and new prospects in the electric mobility sector has once again chosen to focus on the dominant trends in the market, politics, research and development for the 2012 edition. The established international appeal of the German Electric Vehicle Congress makes it a showcase for electric mobility developments in Germany and draws in new ideas from around the world.
As in previous years, approximately 500 participants are expected at this forum for sharing experiences. Highlights from sectors such as vehicle manufacturing (OEMs, prototypes, converters), motor vehicle suppliers, distribution, infrastructure (grids and charging concepts), energy storage and other components, raw materials, sustainability, market forecasting and strategy are accompanied this year by a focus on utility vehicles as trailblazers for electric mobility.
Interested companies and institutions are invited to respond to the call for papers (deadline: 10.02.2012). An extensive exhibition and sponsoring opportunities complete the programme.

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...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
