Upcoming event: Inno.CNT Annual Conference on Carbon Nanomaterials, 25th-27th January 2011

22.11.2010
The German Innovation Alliance for Carbon Nanotubes will hold its annual conference in Ettlingen (near Karlsruhe, Germany) on 25th-27th January. This year the conference will be open to national and international visitors from research and industry. It offers a platform for the international CNT community to exchange results and ideas.

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.

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
