COMPAMED convinced with international flair

Medical technologies from Germany are in demand all over the world. The 40 international exhibitors of the IVAM-product market „High-tech for Medical Devices“ at this years’ COMPAMED say they were really satisfied with the course of the medical supplies trade show.

Thus, the U.S. company Specialty Coating Systems, world market leader in parylene coating and coating units, already applied for COMPAMED 2011 at the first day of the trade show.

More than 16,000 visitors of COMPAMED got informed about technologies and services for upcoming medical technologies. The international experts were particularly interested in innovative solutions and novel production technologies for medical products and devices. “The high percentage of visitors from abroad proves the quality of this show.

This is also an indication that medical technologies “made in Germany“ are in demand all over the world”, explains IVAM CEO Dr. Uwe Kleinkes. The highlight of the accompanying forum „High-tech for Medical Devices“ was international as well: in the course of the „Japan session“, a German-Japanese series of lectures with simultaneous translation, experts discussed legal aspects regarding clinical trials of pharmaceutical products. Besides, current trends and activities of the German market were introduced.

The exhibitors of the joint pavilion presented a large variety of solutions for different fields of medical technologies. As in recent years, a special focus was on Electronic Manufacturing Services (EMS): in the course of a special show, exhibitors presented their portfolio, from manufacturing of prefabricated parts and complete devices to testing methods to quality insurance.

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...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
