Most salient outcomes of those projects dedicated to progress and advances of the MBR technology for municipal wastewater treatment will be presented in a two-day workshop endorsed by the International Water Association. 31 March - 1 April 2009, Berlin, Germany
1st announcement and call for posters
Results of fundamental and applied research as well as technological breakthroughs achieved by the project partners in the field of the MBR technology will be unveiled in about 40 oral presentations and 50 posters.
A dedicated poster session will be included in the workshop program. Any international team or company active in the MBR field is welcome to present a poster. A prize of 1,000 € will be awarded to the best student poster presented at the workshop by a jury of international experts. Extended abstracts for poster presentation can be submitted by 30 September 2008 to the workshop organisers.
The final MBR-Network workshop will take place on 31 March - 1 April 2009 in Berlin, Germany, and will be hosted by the international conference and exhibition on water and wastewater treatment Wasser Berlin 2009 (www.wasser-berlin.com).Contact:

Strong light-matter coupling in these semiconducting tubes may hold the key to electrically pumped lasers
Light-matter quasi-particles can be generated electrically in semiconducting carbon nanotubes. Material scientists and physicists from Heidelberg University...
Fraunhofer IPA has developed a proximity sensor made from silicone and carbon nanotubes (CNT) which detects objects and determines their position. The materials and printing process used mean that the sensor is extremely flexible, economical and can be used for large surfaces. Industry and research partners can use and further develop this innovation straight away.
At first glance, the proximity sensor appears to be nothing special: a thin, elastic layer of silicone onto which black square surfaces are printed, but these...
3-D shape acquisition using water displacement as the shape sensor for the reconstruction of complex objects
A global team of computer scientists and engineers have developed an innovative technique that more completely reconstructs challenging 3D objects. An ancient...
Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.
For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...
What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.
To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
