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: Nanoparticles help with malaria diagnosis – new rapid test in development

The WHO reports an estimated 429,000 malaria deaths each year. The disease mostly affects tropical and subtropical regions and in particular the African continent. The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC teamed up with the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME and the Institute of Tropical Medicine at the University of Tübingen for a new test method to detect malaria parasites in blood. The idea of the research project “NanoFRET” is to develop a highly sensitive and reliable rapid diagnostic test so that patient treatment can begin as early as possible.

Malaria is caused by parasites transmitted by mosquito bite. The most dangerous form of malaria is malaria tropica. Left untreated, it is fatal in most cases....

Im Focus: A “cosmic snake” reveals the structure of remote galaxies

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.

Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...

Im Focus: Visual intelligence is not the same as IQ

Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.

That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...

Im Focus: Novel Nano-CT device creates high-resolution 3D-X-rays of tiny velvet worm legs

Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.

During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....

Im Focus: Researchers Develop Data Bus for Quantum Computer

The quantum world is fragile; error correction codes are needed to protect the information stored in a quantum object from the deteriorating effects of noise. Quantum physicists in Innsbruck have developed a protocol to pass quantum information between differently encoded building blocks of a future quantum computer, such as processors and memories. Scientists may use this protocol in the future to build a data bus for quantum computers. The researchers have published their work in the journal Nature Communications.

Future quantum computers will be able to solve problems where conventional computers fail today. We are still far away from any large-scale implementation,...
