IVAM presents innovative German nanotechnology in Japan

18.02.2016

At the end of January, nano tech, the world’s largest trade fair for nanotechnology, took place in Tokyo. More than 48,000 international trade visitors caught up on nanotechnological products, applications and processes from all around the world at the international exhibition center.

At the German pavilion, organized by IVAM Microtechnology Network, exhibitors from Germany presented their innovations. Functional nano coatings, plasma coating systems and 3D nanoscale patterning were presented as well as innovative laser technology, high-precision pulsation-free pumps and new types of nanomaterials e.g. for transparent electronics.

Furthermore, numerous nanotechnology clusters and networks like the Bavarian Cluster Nanotechnology, the network NanoCarbon and the network nanoInk presented themselves at the German pavilion.

“The German exhibitors are very satisfied with the trade fair and the quality of initial business contacts”, says Dr. Thomas R. Dietrich, CEO of IVAM. “Besides research topics, a number of specific industrial cooperations have been discussed. Many companies were able to intensify existing contacts and also make new ones. The companies are very confident that in the medium run these contacts will lead to new economic success.”

Nano tech stands out due to its huge internationality. More than one third of the exhibitors do not come from Japan. The trade visitors are not only people from Japan, especially guests from the neighboring countries of Korea and China come to visit the exhibition. “Also because of this internationality nano tech is an important exhibition for German nanotechnology companies”, emphasizes Dr. Dietrich.

For the exhibitors IVAM organized business meetings with Japanese companies prior to the fair trade in order to make the most of the opportunity for establishing new contacts. In the course of the forum a session with the topic “Nanotechnology – Innovations made in Germany” took place where the exhibitors had the opportunity to present new developments in German nanotechnology.

Because of the positive outcome of the fair IVAM plans to organize the German pavilion at nano tech 2017. Information concerning this will be available soon from IVAM Microtechnology Network.

Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
