Innovations born within a chemistry lab


Conference `From Graduation to Innovation´ at TU Chemnitz will be held on June 24, 2014 for junior scientists, professors and students in the field of chemistry and related disciplines

„Discoveries are made during inspiring moments in research and teaching. Such discoveries in the field of chemistry and their practical results are the focus of the conference entitled `From Graduation to Innovation´,“ says Prof. Dr. Heinrich Lang.

The event is hosted by his Professorship of Inorganic Chemistry at Technische Universität Chemnitz together with the local section in Chemnitz of the German Chemical Society (GDCh) and the Reaxys, Elsevier. On Tuesday, 24th June 2014, professors, research assistants, doctoral candidates and post-docs, as well as students are warmly invited to join the main lecture hall building of TU Chem-nitz.

From 1 until 6 pm in room N112 five English-language lectures are in the program list. The speakers include Prof. Dr. Martin Jansen (Max-Planck-Institute for Solid State Research), Prof. Dr. Maksym Kovalenko (ETH Zürich), Jun-Prof. Dr. Peter Wich (Universität Mainz), Dr. Ulrike Obst-Sander (Hoffmann-La Roche AG) and Prof. Dr. Nicholas J. Long (Imperial College London).

„The guest speakers will present current developments in the field of chemistry, which have been reflected in everyday applications. Moreover, they will talk about the personal and scientific backgrounds that made these inventions possible,“ says Prof. Lang.

Another highlight of the program is a Science Slam, where junior scientists have the opportunity to present their research and topics that inspire a wider audience. The application deadline is 1 June 2014. The five best submissions will be able to present their papers during the conference at 5:15 pm. The two winners will receive a MacBook Air or an iPad Air.

To the first conference in the series `From Graduation to Innovation´ last year more than 70 participants came together at Universität Frankfurt/Main. The second session takes place in Chemnitz and is addressed now to an explicitly larger target group – especially universities, colleges and research institutes in Central Germany and in border regions of the Czech Republic and Poland.

Im Focus: Etching Microstructures with Lasers

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...

Im Focus: Light-driven atomic rotations excite magnetic waves

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...

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...
