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.

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.
To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...
The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.
Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
