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

A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.
The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...
At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.
At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...
There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?
At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
