This year scientists and industry interested in Li-Fi will meet for the first time under the auspices of the Global LiFi Congress in Paris on February 8-9. They will be sharing their ideas with one another and opening the door for Li-Fi technology to move forward from research to application. Fraunhofer HHI will be present at the Congress with its own stand (No. 17), three talks, a poster presentation and a panel to showcase the latest findings in a variety of application areas.
Fraunhofer HHI scientists will present their latest research results at the Global LiFi Congress from three pilot installations in a variety of application areas: Industrial Manufacturing, Conference Room and Backhaul for Mobile Communications Antennas.
They will also be reporting on the current status of Li-Fi standardization. At the Fraunhofer HHI's Stand 17, interested visitors will be able to see the latest Li-Fi modules, featuring among other things multi-user access, reduced energy consumption and smaller form factor.
Li-Fi, also referred to as Visible Light Communication (VLC), is an alternative to conventional Wi-Fi technologies.
VLC data transmission is also wireless, but uses modulated light produced e.g. by LED lighting sources instead of radio waves. Among the advantages of VLC are the robustness against radio waves and electromagnetic fields.
Li-Fi also provides additional spectrum for crowded radio networks and is less susceptible to interference.
The Global LiFi Congress provides an overview on the topical areas of Li-Fi and demonstrates the sector's challenges and developments.
Academic conferences and round-table discussions will give representatives from science and business the chance to share their visions with regard to Li-Fi innovations and applications.

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.
In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...
Breakthrough provides a new concept of the design of molecular motors, sensors and electricity generators at nanoscale

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.
But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...
Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.
The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters
Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
