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

Im Focus: Quantum optical sensor for the first time tested in space – with a laser system from Berlin

For the first time ever, a cloud of ultra-cold atoms has been successfully created in space on board of a sounding rocket. The MAIUS mission demonstrates that quantum optical sensors can be operated even in harsh environments like space – a prerequi-site for finding answers to the most challenging questions of fundamental physics and an important innovation driver for everyday applications.

According to Albert Einstein's Equivalence Principle, all bodies are accelerated at the same rate by the Earth's gravity, regardless of their properties. This...

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
