New Nanoforum Website Launched

24.08.2005


New look but same breadth of information

The new-look is the result of a critical evaluation of website functionality and a review of what registered users want from Nanoforum. The revamped website offers the same level of information and detail as before, but it is now easier to search for related information.

The homepage lists the latest news with quick links to events, organisations, calls and programs, and Nanoforum reports, with the number of entries in each listed in brackets. There is also a “Highlights” section for the latest news from Nanoforum (for example new reports, conferences etc) as well as other important information for the community. In addition advertising space on the Nanoforum homepage is now available.



However, the main difference that regular users will find is the classification of information into different sectors using a pictorial menu bar.

New Navigation System

A new pictorial menu bar located below the Nanoforum banner allows users to access information on specific sectors quickly:

• Chemistry and Materials
• Health and Nanobio
• NanoTools and Metrology
• Information and Communication
• Transport and Space
• Energy
• Fundamental Science

and the following additional sectors can be chosen by selecting the “more” button to the right of the menu bar:

• Society Issues
• Safety and Environment
• Consumer Products
• Construction
• Strategy
• Economy
• Agriculture and Food

Clicking on any of these buttons filters all the information in the Nanoforum databases to present only that which is relevant to the selected sector.

This information is displayed in convenient panels in the following categories: news, events, calls and programs, and publications. Additional sections for organisations, and Nanoforum reports are present with a “Further Information” panel providing links to information on education, investment, and jobs, and specialised sections for press and business.

Other changes

An easier-to-use interface has been developed which allows users to find details of organisations within each state by clicking on a map of Europe. In this regard the “Institutions” database has been renamed to “Organisations” to reflect the fact that entries are from both the private and publicly funded sectors.

The extended search facility has been improved and allows users to search for specific entries within the Nanoforum website from each sub-page (the original system of searching by “R&D” or “Applications” is still possible).

A site-map for nanoforum.org has also been included for user convenience, and is located at the top of the screen, along with information on Nanoforum and contact details.

Most importantly, all of this information is free. All we ask is that users take a few moments to complete a registered user form which will also allow us to keep you up-to-date with all the latest European nanotechnology news.

Im Focus: Molecular switch will facilitate the development of pioneering electro-optical devices

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...

Im Focus: LZH showcases laser material processing of tomorrow at the LASYS 2018

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...

Im Focus: Self-illuminating pixels for a new display generation

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...
