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.

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.
At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...
There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?
At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...

A team led by Austrian experimental physicist Rainer Blatt has succeeded in characterizing the quantum entanglement of two spatially separated atoms by observing their light emission. This fundamental demonstration could lead to the development of highly sensitive optical gradiometers for the precise measurement of the gravitational field or the earth's magnetic field.
The age of quantum technology has long been heralded. Decades of research into the quantum world have led to the development of methods that make it possible...
