Experts create new German chemistry portal

Internet-based information and knowledge platform provides access to education, research, conferences and meeting activities in chemistry / Cooperative project of the German chemical society GDCh, the National Library of Science and Technology and FIZ CHEMIE Berlin / The portal is jointly operated by the three development partners

In a cooperative project of development the German Chemical Society Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker (GDCh), the German National Library of Science and Technology Technische Informationsbibliothek (TIB) Hannover and FIZ CHEMIE Berlin have created, a new information and knowledge platform for chemistry. Interfaces both in German and in English are available. The development was funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). It also supports the operational service. will be on display at the Online Information 2006 exhibition, London 28 Nov - 30 Nov, Grand Hall, Stand No 322. supports the navigation through German professional education and training, research, conferences and meeting activities in chemistry. The portal is jointly operated by the development partners. Each of them supplies own content, e.g. information on research projects, e-learning courses covering chemistry subjects or conference data. As a supplement many entries are featured with evaluated hyperlinks to further information. Along with this provides the community with a discussion forum and informs on vacancies in science and industry. All information provided can be searched using as a centralised access point. The basic services are offered for free. If the portal connects to value-added services pop-up windows inform about the conditions of purchase.

The GDCh is the largest chemical society in Europe with approx. 27.000 members from universities, industry and other areas. The GDCh supports chemistry in teaching, research and application and promotes the understanding of chemistry in public.

The TIB Hannover is the German National Library of Science and Technology covering all areas of engineering and its basic sciences, in particular chemistry, information technology, mathematics and physics. The TIB comprehensivly acquires and archives literature from around the world pertaining to engineering and natural sciences. The library places a particular emphasis on acquiring so-called "grey" literature; i.e. conference proceedings, research reports etc.

FIZ CHEMIE Berlin is a state-supported non-profit information agency with more than 25 years experience in digital scientific information services. Its primary task is to provide high-quality information services concerning chemistry, chemical engineering and related fields to science, education and industry.

Im Focus: Novel light sources made of 2D materials

Physicists from the University of Würzburg have designed a light source that emits photon pairs. Two-photon sources are particularly well suited for tap-proof data encryption. The experiment's key ingredients: a semiconductor crystal and some sticky tape.

So-called monolayers are at the heart of the research activities. These "super materials" (as the prestigious science magazine "Nature" puts it) have been...

Im Focus: Etching Microstructures with Lasers

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.

This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Im Focus: Light-driven atomic rotations excite magnetic waves

Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...
