3rd Steel Polishing Workshop in Aachen – Intense exchange of information about steel polishing

19.09.2012
On November 19 and 20, 2012 Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT, Halmstad University (Sweden) and the steel manufacturers Uddeholms AB Sweden and Uddeholm Deutschland GmbH will be holding again a two-day workshop for the intense exchange of information about tool steel polishing. Industrial and scientific experts will be reporting on their experiences, on the state-of-the-art and the outlook for the future.
Industry and research focusing on polishing technologies

The aim of the workshop is to discuss current issues with the participants and determine the perspectives for new research objectives. As in the previous workshops in 2008 and 2010 the organizers will encourage the intense exchange of practical experiences between scientists and users of polishing technologies.

The workshop is divided in four sessions, and will be held by speakers of research and industrial organizations who will focus on the manual and the automated polishing process as well as on questions to metrology, design and the material. Discussions in small groups will help to pose new research questions and perspectives centered around steel polishing issues.

The workshop is limited to 50 participants to ensure the workshop character. The participation fee (170 Euro) covers the workshop transcript, meals and refreshments during the day and a joint dinner in stylish surroundings. The workshop will be held in English.

Venue:
Fraunhofer IPT
Steinbachstrasse 17
52074 Aachen
Germany

Participation fee:
170 Euro (incl. workshop documentation, lunch, refreshments, dinner on the evening of the first day)

Im Focus: A Challenging European Research Project to Develop New Tiny Microscopes

The Institute of Semiconductor Technology and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, both members of the Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology (LENA), at Technische Universität Braunschweig are partners in a new European research project entitled ChipScope, which aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.

To demonstrate the usefulness of this new scientific tool, at the end of the project the developed chip-sized microscope will be used to observe in real-time...

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.
