Nanofair 2014 – Turn knowledge into economic power

From July 1-3, 2014, Dresden will again be the setting for the Nanofair Conference – the leading European platform for nanotechnology.

The conference and the accompanying trade exhibition will take place for the 10th time and is organized by the Fraunhofer-Institut für Werkstoff- und Strahltechnik IWS Dresden in partnership with DRESDEN-concept and the City of Dresden’s Department of Economic Development.

On the occasion of its 10th anniversary Nanofair 2014 will offer numerous innovations. The congress’ program is to be extended to two and a half days, which offers several advantages; firstly, the 2nd Dresden Nanoanalysis Symposium with issues around the field of nanoanalysis can be integrated into the program and secondly, the hotly discussed topic “graphenes” will come into the focus of the third day of the conference.

Renowned international speakers have agreed to present their latest research. Herbert Gleiter, KIT, the godfather of nanotechnology, Helge Weman,Norwegian University of Science & Technology (NTNU) and highly recognized expert in the field of graphenes, Bill Clyne, Cambridge University, Jorge Gardea-Torresdey, University of Texas, Mitsuhiro Koden, Organic Electronics Cluster Yamagata, Esko Kauppinen, Aalto University and Henning Zoz, Zoz Group. Furthermore, Andrea C. Ferrari, University of Cambridge, has been invited to present his talk.

The Call for Papers is open until January 5, 2014. You are cordially invited to submit your proposals and posters, focusing on nano materials, nano electronics, optics, energy applications, Life Science, process aspects, nano analytics, CNT or graphenes at

Prof. Dr. Andreas Leson | Fraunhofer-Institut

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...
