nano tech in Tokyo: IVAM joint pavilion presented the enormous range of nanotechnology

01.03.2017

nano tech in Japan is the world's largest international nanotechnology exhibition and conference. More than 53,000 international experts visited the nano tech at the "Big Sight" exhibition ground in Tokyo in the middle of February and caught up on the latest developments and results in the fields of nanotechnology products, applications and processes. The exhibition stands out due to its huge internationality. Apart from trade visitors from Japan, especially guests from the neighboring countries Korea and China come to visit the exhibition.

At the joint pavilion of the IVAM Microtechnology Network, which was organized under the headline "Nano in Germany", 14 companies showcased their innovations.

The exhibitors on-site presented cost-effective manufacturing processes of specific nanoparticles, 3D production of printed nanoscales, commercial production of graphene, an important new nano material for a wide range of applications, or manufacturing of nanomaterials for applications in the fields of energy and environment.

In addition, nanotech solutions in the field of surface processing for the automotive industry, nanostructured membranes, e.g. for fuel cell technology, and functionalized nano surfaces for medical devices have been presented.

"The various applications that were presented at the IVAM area show the enormous range of nanotechnology applications," says Dr. Thomas R. Dietrich, Managing Director of IVAM. "The exhibitors on-site were very satisfied with the response from the visitors."

The IVAM exhibitors were able to make and maintain contacts with Japanese companies even outside the exhibition. The supporting program included, for example, a ceremonial opening with a traditional sake ceremony.

IVAM Managing Director Dr. Thomas Dietrich was allowed to open the sake barrel ceremoniously with a wooden hammer as deputy for Germany together with other guests of honor. Furthermore, the companies of the IVAM pavilion attended a reception of the German Embassy with the Minister of Economic Affairs of Saxony.

Because of the positive outcome of the fair IVAM reserved space for another German pavilion at nano tech 2018. Detailed information will be available soon from IVAM Microtechnology Network.

Im Focus: AchemAsia 2019 will take place in Shanghai

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.

Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...

Im Focus: First real-time test of Li-Fi utilization for the industrial Internet of Things

The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.

Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.

Im Focus: Sharp images with flexible fibers

An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.

Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...

Im Focus: Water is not the same as water

Water molecules exist in two different forms with almost identical physical properties. For the first time, researchers have succeeded in separating the two forms to show that they can exhibit different chemical reactivities. These results were reported by researchers from the University of Basel and their colleagues in Hamburg in the scientific journal Nature Communications.

From a chemical perspective, water is a molecule in which a single oxygen atom is linked to two hydrogen atoms. It is less well known that water exists in two...
