French logistics expertise is transported to Multimodal 2010

19.03.2010
The French Trade Commission in the UK will unveil the French Pavilion at the Multimodal 2010 trade show, the key transport and logistics event in the UK, to be held at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) in Birmingham from 27 to 29 April. The French Pavilion will showcase dynamic French companies from across the transport and logistics sector.

The French Pavilion will offer a unique environment for visitors to discover new products and services, and to find potential business partners. The participating French companies are aiming to reinforce their professional contacts and explore new business opportunities between France and the UK on the occasion of Multimodal 2010, which will take place at the National Exhibition Centre, in Birmingham (England), from 27 to 29 April.

The companies due to attend (Stand No800) are listed below; a more comprehensive catalogue with full details on each of the exhibitors will be available upon request.

Atlantic RF

Ever since 2003, Atlantic RF has stood out as one of the leaders on the active RFID market, with the company’s production exceeding two million modules delivered worldwide. Atlantic RF’s know-how covers the remote reading of gas and water meters, as well as Search And Rescue Satellite-Aided Tracking (SARSAT) and asset tracking.

During the Multimodal exhibition, Atlantic RF will unveil IDTREL, which is the answer to issues encountered in industries using Returnable Transport Items (RTI). IDTREL also represents a new generation of innovative RFID tags, as produced by Atlantic RF. The company stresses the fact that these RFID tags have a 10-year lifespan and combine ‘active’ and ‘passive’ benefits.

Im Focus: The pyrenoid is a carbon-fixing liquid droplet

Plants and algae use the enzyme Rubisco to fix carbon dioxide, removing it from the atmosphere and converting it into biomass. Algae have figured out a way to increase the efficiency of carbon fixation. They gather most of their Rubisco into a ball-shaped microcompartment called the pyrenoid, which they flood with a high local concentration of carbon dioxide. A team of scientists at Princeton University, the Carnegie Institution for Science, Stanford University and the Max Plank Institute of Biochemistry have unravelled the mysteries of how the pyrenoid is assembled. These insights can help to engineer crops that remove more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere while producing more food.

Im Focus: Highly precise wiring in the Cerebral Cortex

Our brains house extremely complex neuronal circuits, whose detailed structures are still largely unknown. This is especially true for the so-called cerebral cortex of mammals, where among other things vision, thoughts or spatial orientation are being computed. Here the rules by which nerve cells are connected to each other are only partly understood. A team of scientists around Moritz Helmstaedter at the Frankfiurt Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and Helene Schmidt (Humboldt University in Berlin) have now discovered a surprisingly precise nerve cell connectivity pattern in the part of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for orienting the individual animal or human in space.

The researchers report online in Nature (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005) that synapses in...

Im Focus: Ultrafast snapshots of relaxing electrons in solids

Using ultrafast flashes of laser and x-ray radiation, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany) took snapshots of the briefest electron motion inside a solid material to date. The electron motion lasted only 750 billionths of the billionth of a second before it fainted, setting a new record of human capability to capture ultrafast processes inside solids!

When x-rays shine onto solid materials or large molecules, an electron is pushed away from its original place near the nucleus of the atom, leaving a hole...

Im Focus: Quantum Sensors Decipher Magnetic Ordering in a New Semiconducting Material

For the first time, physicists have successfully imaged spiral magnetic ordering in a multiferroic material. These materials are considered highly promising candidates for future data storage media. The researchers were able to prove their findings using unique quantum sensors that were developed at Basel University and that can analyze electromagnetic fields on the nanometer scale. The results – obtained by scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics, the Swiss Nanoscience Institute, the University of Montpellier and several laboratories from University Paris-Saclay – were recently published in the journal Nature.

Multiferroics are materials that simultaneously react to electric and magnetic fields. These two properties are rarely found together, and their combined...
