ICPE in Graz for the seventh time


On September 14, 2016 at Graz University of Technology the 7th edition of the two-day "International Congress on Pharmaceutical Engineering (ICPE)" started. At the venue “Alte Technik” top researchers from more than 20 countries are expected.

ICPE 2016, one of the world-renowned international congresses in the pharmaceutical process engineering field, takes place from September 14 to 15 and is organized by the Competence Center Research Center Pharmaceutical Engineering GmbH (RCPE) together with the Institute of Process and Particle Technology (IPPT) of Graz University of Technology and the Association for Pharmaceutical Technology (APV), Mainz.

- Advanced Pharmaceutical Manufacturing
- Continuous manufacturing
- PAT for continuous manufacturing
- Regulatory aspects of continuous manufacturing

At the ICPE 2016 seven keynote speaches are held- such as by Dr. Jobst Limberg, Prof. Benjamin J. Glasser and Professor Kieran Hodnett – as well as six short presentations; there are more than 20 posters presented and the expected 100 congress participants will have a guided tour through the laboratories and the RCPE pilot plant at the Graz University of Technology. The program will be rounded off by giving demonstrations in the field of extrusion, spray drying and tableting.

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

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...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

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...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...

Im Focus: New Products - Highlights of COMPAMED 2016

COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.

In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...

Im Focus: Ultra-thin ferroelectric material for next-generation electronics

'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.

Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
