LIBS 2008 - 5th International Conference on Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy

Together with ISAS (Institute of Analytical Sciences), BAM is organising LIBS 2008 - the 5th International Conference on Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy in the Berlin-Adlershof between 22 and 26 September.

Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy is a versatile method for the multi-element analysis of solid, liquid or gaseous samples in environmental and process analysis. In this method an intensive, pulsed laser is focused on the sample to be tested so that a part of the sample evaporates and is atomised and/or ionized in the developed plasma.

The elemental composition can be determined with the help of characteristic emission lines. Since no sample preparation is necessary and direct or fibre-optic remote sensing is possible, LIBS is of interest for a number of on-line and in-situ monitoring tasks.

The highlights of the conference in Berlin will include new results in the field of LIBS fundamentals, instrumentation and applications in process analysis, environmental sciences as well as research in safety engineering. The conference will address scientists and engineers from all over the world who deal with analytical chemistry, process analysis and laser ablation. The scientific programme covers lectures and workshops as well as an accompanying exhibition.

The conference will be chaired by Prof. Dr. Ulrich Panne, Head of the BAM Department I Analytical Chemistry, Reference Materials. The scientific committee is composed of scientists from Germany, France, Greece, Great Britain, Italy and Spain, from Australia, Egypt, Israel, Japan, Canada and the USA.

Date: LIBS 2008 - 5th International Conference on Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy Berlin-Adlershof, 22 26 September 2008

Head of the BAM Department I Analytical Chemistry, Reference Materials

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
