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.

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...

Im Focus: New Products - Highlights of COMPAMED 2016

COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.

In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...

Im Focus: Ultra-thin ferroelectric material for next-generation electronics

'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.

Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
