Innovations born within a chemistry lab

19.05.2014

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: Artificial agent designs quantum experiments

On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.

We carry smartphones in our pockets, the streets are dotted with semi-autonomous cars, but in the research laboratory experiments are still being designed by...

Im Focus: Scientists decipher key principle behind reaction of metalloenzymes

So-called pre-distorted states accelerate photochemical reactions too

What enables electrons to be transferred swiftly, for example during photosynthesis? An interdisciplinary team of researchers has worked out the details of how...

Im Focus: The first precise measurement of a single molecule's effective charge

For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.

Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...

Im Focus: Paradigm shift in Paris: Encouraging an holistic view of laser machining

At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.

No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...

Im Focus: Room-temperature multiferroic thin films and their properties

Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.

Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
