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.

University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.
Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.
Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.

Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.
The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...
Stable joint cartilage can be produced from adult stem cells originating from bone marrow. This is made possible by inducing specific molecular processes occurring during embryonic cartilage formation, as researchers from the University and University Hospital of Basel report in the scientific journal PNAS.
Certain mesenchymal stem/stromal cells from the bone marrow of adults are considered extremely promising for skeletal tissue regeneration. These adult stem...
