displays and solar cells be extended?Questions like this will be discussed on the symposium »pro flex 2010« in September in Dresden
by international experts from industry and academia.
30 speakers from 8 countries in Europe and Asia will present their up-to-date results concerning the production of flexible solar cells, touch-screens, batteries, flexible lighting or displays. The symposium focuses on the vacuum roll-to-roll coating technology, which allows cost-efficient manufacturing of flexible devices. Recent key developments on plant components, analytical methods for coatings as well as innovative applications are among the hot topics.
For 20 years the Fraunhofer Institute for Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP in Dresden has built up its expertise in developing coating technologies for a broad spectrum of substrates and purposes. By building key components for pilot plants their in-house machine shop enables immediate realization of processing ideas. Due to the boosting demand for coatings of flexible materials, the renowned institute hosted in 2004 for the first time the symposium »pro flex« to bring together parties involved in the production and use of flexible products in a face-to-face atmosphere.
The success of the previous two events confirmed the organizers of the necessity of this meeting platform.
Again, this year’s program promises the participants interesting and inspiring days in Dresden.

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.
For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...
What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.
To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
