The focus will be on applications and technological requirements for carbon nanomaterials, especially in the fields of lightweight construction, mobility, energy and environment.
The demands placed on new, high-tech materials are continually increasing, and existing material systems are reaching their limits. Due to their exceptional electrical and mechanical properties, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have the potential to transform numerous products and applications.
The Inno.CNT Annual Conference will provide a platform for international teams working in the dynamic field of CNT research and development to discuss their results and ideas. Public sessions will be held in the castle in Ettlingen (near Karlsruhe, Germany) from 25th-26th January 2011.
The program includes key note speeches by renowned experts Morinobu Endo (Shinshu University, Japan), Professor Alan Windle (University of Cambridge, UK) and Professor Robert Schlögl (Fritz-Haber-Institute of the Max-Planck-Gesellschaft). A range of international speakers will present results from carbon nanomaterial alliances in France, Japan, Israel and Singapore. On the afternoon of the second day, parallel sessions will cover different thematic areas including lightweight construction, mobility, energy and environment, modelling, synthesis and characterisation, and dispersion.
Poster contributions are welcome and can be registered until 30th November 2010.
The conference will be hosted by the German Innovation Alliance for Carbon Nanotubes (Inno.CNT), in collaboration with the research and training network CONTACT. The Inno.CNT initiative is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research, and is a communication platform for activities in the field of carbon nanomaterials in Germany and on an international level. CONTACT is funded by the EU's Marie Curie mobility program and is involved in the training of PhD students and post docs on a European level.

The Institute of Semiconductor Technology and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, both members of the Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology (LENA), at Technische Universität Braunschweig are partners in a new European research project entitled ChipScope, which aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.
To demonstrate the usefulness of this new scientific tool, at the end of the project the developed chip-sized microscope will be used to observe in real-time...
Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.
The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.
Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...
Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.
Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.
