Russian-German Laser Network at the Photonics Fair in Moscow
The "Network of Russian-German Laser Centers" will be exhibiting at the fair "Photonics. World of Lasers and Optics" from April 20th to 23rd, 2009 in Moscow.
The five members of the expert network will present their services in the field of laser technology at a joint exhibition stand.
The individual "Laser Innovation Technological Centers (LITC)" from Moscow, Yekaterinburg, Kaluga, Rostov and St. Petersburg are especially geared towards small and medium-sized enterprises (SME's).
The idea behind the LITC is based on the network of laser testing and consulting centers, which was founded in Germany in 1996. Like in Germany, the Russian LITC aim at presenting their laser know-how to a wide industrial base, acting as a sort of "jump start" in laser technology for SME's.
The five Russian centers will not only present the network at the Photonics fair in Moscow, but will also show uses of laser technology in industry, including samples that were manufactured in the course of the project.
The project leader and stand organizer is the Laser Zentrum Hannover (LZH), who is bringing the expertise they gained in the project in Germany into the LITC. "If the Russian network is as successful as the German network was," says project head Klaus Nowitzki of the LZH, "there will soon be a boom in the industrial use of lasers in Russia."
The network of Russian-German Laser Centers LITC, which is supported by the Germany Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), is located in Pavilion 3, Stand G 30.

HZI researchers decipher infection mechanisms of Yersinia and immune responses of the host
Yersiniae cause severe intestinal infections. Studies using Yersinia pseudotuberculosis as a model organism aim to elucidate the infection mechanisms of these...
Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
