7th International Workshop on Terahertz Technology and Applications – Call for Papers

08.10.2015

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.

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Studying fundamental particles in materials

Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales

Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...

Im Focus: How to inflate a hardened concrete shell with a weight of 80 t

At TU Wien, an alternative for resource intensive formwork for the construction of concrete domes was developed. It is now used in a test dome for the Austrian Federal Railways Infrastructure (ÖBB Infrastruktur).

Concrete shells are efficient structures, but not very resource efficient. The formwork for the construction of concrete domes alone requires a high amount of...

Im Focus: Bacterial Pac Man molecule snaps at sugar

Many pathogens use certain sugar compounds from their host to help conceal themselves against the immune system. Scientists at the University of Bonn have now, in cooperation with researchers at the University of York in the United Kingdom, analyzed the dynamics of a bacterial molecule that is involved in this process. They demonstrate that the protein grabs onto the sugar molecule with a Pac Man-like chewing motion and holds it until it can be used. Their results could help design therapeutics that could make the protein poorer at grabbing and holding and hence compromise the pathogen in the host. The study has now been published in “Biophysical Journal”.

The cells of the mouth, nose and intestinal mucosa produce large quantities of a chemical called sialic acid. Many bacteria possess a special transport system...
