Plants are networkers

19.06.2017

Invitation to the 3rd international Leibniz Plant Biochemistry Symposium

Plants are masters of adaptation. They almost have always means to defend themselves against pathogens, climate fluctuations, and extreme weather conditions.

Only with their sensitive antennas and emergency call programs have they been able to survive for millions of years. Looking for allies in this battle is part of their survival strategy.

They interact with fungi, bacteria, and insects in order to ward off enemies or to attract the enemies of their enemies. Plant network tactics are the focus of the 3rd Leibniz Plant Biochemistry Symposium in Halle an der Saale.

Seven high-ranking plant experts from Germany and Israel will present their latest research results for discussion at this international symposium on 22 and 23 June 2017 at the Leibniz Institute of Plant Biochemistry.

Anyone interested, in particular students and young scientists, is cordially invited to this unique gathering of experts in central Germany. Admission is free. Registration is required however because space is limited. Please visit our website for the program and further information for registration.

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...

Im Focus: Scientists develop molecular thermometer for contactless measurement using infrared light

Temperature measurements possible even on the smallest scale / Molecular ruby for use in material sciences, biology, and medicine

Chemists at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) in cooperation with researchers of the German Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM)...

Im Focus: Optoelectronic Inline Measurement – Accurate to the Nanometer

Germany counts high-precision manufacturing processes among its advantages as a location. It’s not just the aerospace and automotive industries that require almost waste-free, high-precision manufacturing to provide an efficient way of testing the shape and orientation tolerances of products. Since current inline measurement technology not yet provides the required accuracy, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT is collaborating with four renowned industry partners in the INSPIRE project to develop inline sensors with a new accuracy class. Funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), the project is scheduled to run until the end of 2019.

New Manufacturing Technologies for New Products

Im Focus: Graphene electrodes offer new functionalities in molecular electronic nanodevices

An international team of researchers led by the University of Bern and the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) has revealed a new way to tune the functionality of next-generation molecular electronic devices using graphene. The results could be exploited to develop smaller, higher-performance devices for use in a range of applications including molecular sensing, flexible electronics, and energy conversion and storage, as well as robust measurement setups for resistance standards.

The field of nanoscale molecular electronics aims to exploit individual molecules as the building blocks for electronic devices, to improve functionality and...

Im Focus: Quantum nanoscope

Seeing electrons surfing the waves of light on graphene

Researchers have studied how light can be used to "see" the quantum nature of an electronic material. They managed to do that by capturing light in a net of...
