The bestLog Workshop III - Actions for Policy Makers and the Industry

The bestLog project (the European platform for logistics best practice), coordinated by the Berlin Institute of Technology, is inviting to its 3rd workshop "Actions for Policy Makers and the Industry" which will take place at the NH Jolly Berlin Friedrichstrasse Hotel in Berlin on October 21, 2008.

In this workshop, which is the third in a series of workshops throughout 2008, Best Practice Case Studies will be presented and logistics professionals from various sectors will be discussing knowledge and innovation management in logistics.

This workshop will address questions such as

o What can firms do to improve available logistics infrastructure?

o Competition vs Cooperation; can environmental concerns soften firms' and governments' stance of collusion?

o Are standards needed for measuring carbon footprints?

o Is there a need for a standard approach to evaluate infrastructure development projects?

The bestLog Project is establishing an exchange platform for the improvement of supply chain management practice across Europe. BestLog aims to set standards for logistics practice and education as well as create growth and employment accordingly.

The workshop is free of charge and registrations can be made online on the bestLog website

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...
