The new facility called IRVUX-FEL is included in the European Roadmap for Research Infrastructures 2006 developed by the European Strategy Forum for Research Infrastructures (ESFRI - http://cordis.europa.eu/esfri/). In a Preparatory Phase Project funded by the 7th Framework Programme of the EC, the laboratories are now combining their forces to build and operate IRUVX-FEL as a distributed European facility.
It will include FLASH at DESY, Hamburg, Germany, which has been in operation since 2005, FERMI at Elettra, Trieste, Italy, which is currently under construction, and several other FEL sources which are in the planning phase, among them POLFEL in Swierk, Poland, and projects in France, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK.
IRUVX-FEL will offer a suite of complementary FEL light sources and instrumentation that is unsurpassed in the world. The new sources combine the wide and continuously tunable wavelength range of synchrotron radiation – from infrared (IR) through ultraviolet (UV) to X-rays - with ultra-short pulses and coherence of lasers, but at much higher peak and average power, offering completely new research opportunities in different areas of science for a large, multi-disciplinary research community.
It will be possible, for example, to image nano-objects at femtosecond shutter speed and to explore the three-dimensional atomic dynamics of materials at the (femtosecond) timescale of atomic motion.

In a recent publication in the renowned journal Optica, scientists of Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz IPHT) in Jena showed that they can accurately control the optical properties of liquid-core fiber lasers and therefore their spectral band width by temperature and pressure tuning.
Already last year, the researchers provided experimental proof of a new dynamic of hybrid solitons– temporally and spectrally stationary light waves resulting...

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.
Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...
The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.
Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.
An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.
Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...
