On April 13-17, 2015, the latest trends and technologies along the entire industry value chain are on display at the world’s biggest industrial fair, HANNOVER MESSE.
Special attention is directed towards the key technologies microtechnology, nanotechnology, photonics and advanced materials: these technologies make industrial processes and products faster, cheaper and more efficient and assure and improve product quality in the long run.
IVAM Microtechnology Network concentrates these innovations in key technologies at a joint pavilion, which will take up a space of about 350 square meters in exhibition hall 3 – in close vicinity of Surface Technology and SchauplatzNano. IVAM CEO Dr. Thomas R. Dietrich explains the move to a new environment:
“The booth’s focus in exhibition hall 3 lies on connecting businesses from the fields of micro- and nanotechnology with each other and their technologies’ users. Based on our numerous activities in the nano field – IVAM is a founding member of Nano-in-Germany – and to focus synergies, the established IVAM Product Market “Micro, Nano & Materials” will take place in direct neighborhood of other German nano initiatives in the future.
This way, we again create a central starting point for users of micro- and nanotechnologies that is set to take the place of the former leading trade fair MicroNanoTec."
The IVAM Product Market will highlight nanotechnology applications, micro components, structures and precision parts; systems for precise process and production control and quality assurance; industrial surfaces and materials engineering; future-proof solutions for industrial production processes and international technology development.
Businesses interested in exhibiting at the high-tech Product Market can find more information on HANNOVER MESSE at IVAM’s website at http://ivam.de/HM15.

At the productronica trade fair in Munich this November, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be presenting Laser-Based Tape-Automated Bonding, LaserTAB for short. The experts from Aachen will be demonstrating how new battery cells and power electronics can be micro-welded more efficiently and precisely than ever before thanks to new optics and robot support.
Fraunhofer ILT from Aachen relies on a clever combination of robotics and a laser scanner with new optics as well as process monitoring, which it has developed...
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.

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...
Whispering gallery mode (WGM) resonators are used to make tiny micro-lasers, sensors, switches, routers and other devices. These tiny structures rely on a...
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...
