The »7th International Workshop on Terahertz Technology and Applications«, jointly organized by Fraunhofer IPM and the Division Optical Technologies of the VDI/VDE Society Measurement and Automatic Control (GMA), will take place from March 15 to 16, 2016 at Fraunhofer IPM in Kaiserslautern. Abstracts may be submitted until October 31, 2015.
The workshop fosters the exchange of knowledge and experience between academics and industry in rapidly developing field of terahertz technology.
The technology’s potential for applications in diagnostics, measurement and testing has been demonstrated in a number of ways during the past years. However, scientists are faced with challenging questions when it comes to the industrial use of terahertz technology.
The seventh workshop will address primarily the topics of non-destructive testing, technology for homeland security, communications, health and social aspects of terahertz technology, and novel THz system technologies.
Renowned international experts have confirmed to give invited lectures to the forum, among them Prof. Dr. Willie J. Padilla from the Duke University (USA), Prof. Dr. Masahiko Tani from the University of Fukui (Japan) and Dr. W. Winkler from Silicon Radar GmbH. Prof. Dr. Georg von Freymann, head of department »Materials Characterization and Testing« at Fraunhofer IPM und Prof. Dr. Karsten Buse, executive director of Fraunhofer IPM will act as chairmen.
Experts in the field of terahertz technology are encouraged to submit their abstracts until
October 31, 2015 via the VDI/VDI-GMA website (see below). The workshop will be held in English.

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.
Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...
Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.
"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...
The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...
The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...
Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.
Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
