Prospects of success for German PV technology in North Africa

The development of new foreign business markets and a close collaboration with the international scientific community is of vital interest to the German photovoltaic sector.

Along with its internationalisation strategy the leading-edge cluster Solarvalley Central Germany is therefore inviting to its annual information event with a regional focus on the two Northern African countries Morocco and Tunisia. The meeting will take place at the International Congress Center of Munich (ICM) during the Intersolar Europe fair.

The agenda on 14 June 2012 comprises 11 presentations on topics such as political framework conditions for photovoltaics in North Africa, opportunities for cooperation and market development as well as technological solutions for arid climates.

Existing barriers and adaptation processes of the German photovoltaic sector shall be pointed out. Up to date information on the Moroccan market will be presented by the national energy agency ADEREE, the agency for solar energy MASEN and the recently founded research institute IRESEN. The market in Tunisia will be introduced by the national energy agency ANME together with GIZ.

The official side-event of the Intersolar Europe Conference 2012 is conjointly organised by the leading-edge cluster Solarvalley Central Germany and the EESA joint initiative (a project of VDI/VDE-IT) with the support of GIZ and IMG Investment and Marketing Corporation of Saxony-Anhalt.

The Intersolar Europe fair trade expects 2.000 exhibitors and 80.000 visitors this year and, therefore, poses ideal framework conditions for presenting and discussing this topic. The leading-edge cluster Solarvalley Central Germany again exhibits at the joint booth of the Federal State of Saxony-Anhalt in Hall A6 Booth 170.

Online registration is possible under

The participation fee is: 155 Euro + VAT until June 8th, 2012 and 195 Euro + VAT thereafter including a free entrance ticket to the exhibition.

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...
