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

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.
As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...
Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.
Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...
For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.
While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...
An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.
The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...
A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.
Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
