The Future of Work

From 11 to 13 December a conference entitled “Work, Ethics and Freedom” will take place at the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology (MPI). Using case studies, social anthropologists, sociologists, and legal scholars will explore what is understood as “work” today. This is the first conference of the Max-Cam Centre (Max Planck – Cambridge Centre for Ethics, Economy and Social Change). It will open on 11 December at 18:00 with a keynote by Wolfgang Streeck, Director Emeritus of the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies, on different configurations in the relationship between universalism and particularism, in theory and the real world.

The ethical foundations of work
Work is a central part of our lives. Around the world, most people spend a substantial portion of their lives working. It thus...

Laser Symposium on Electromobility in Aachen: trends for the mobility revolution

Following a successful premiere in 2019, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will kick off the second Laser Symposium on Electromobility – LSE’20 – in Aachen on February 12, 2020. The two-day event will focus on high-efficiency laser techniques for every step in the process chain for producing batteries and electric vehicles. One of the main highlights will be a presentation from Swiss company E-Force One AG on the electrification of heavy-duty transportation.

2020 will be a defining year for electromobility in the global vehicle industry: that’s when the EU’s binding fleet-wide CO2 emission targets come into effect.

Smart lasers open up new applications and are the “tool of choice” in digitalization

The annual meeting of experts ‘LaserForum’ regularly focuses on innovative production methods in which lasers have become indispensable: on the one hand, it deals with the use of laser systems for digitalizing production, but also with the latest developments in more efficient laser systems. In October 2019, the event was hosted by TRUMPF Laser- und Systemtechnik GmbH in Ditzingen, Germany.

Laser is the “tool of choice” for industry 4.0

Die letzten 5 Focus-News des innovations-reports im Überblick:

Im Focus: Highly charged ion paves the way towards new physics

In a joint experimental and theoretical work performed at the Heidelberg Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics, an international team of physicists detected for the first time an orbital crossing in the highly charged ion Pr⁹⁺. Optical spectra were recorded employing an electron beam ion trap and analysed with the aid of atomic structure calculations. A proposed nHz-wide transition has been identified and its energy was determined with high precision. Theory predicts a very high sensitivity to new physics and extremely low susceptibility to external perturbations for this “clock line” making it a unique candidate for proposed precision studies.

Laser spectroscopy of neutral atoms and singly charged ions has reached astonishing precision by merit of a chain of technological advances during the past...

Im Focus: Ultrafast stimulated emission microscopy of single nanocrystals in Science

The ability to investigate the dynamics of single particle at the nano-scale and femtosecond level remained an unfathomed dream for years. It was not until the dawn of the 21st century that nanotechnology and femtoscience gradually merged together and the first ultrafast microscopy of individual quantum dots (QDs) and molecules was accomplished.

Ultrafast microscopy studies entirely rely on detecting nanoparticles or single molecules with luminescence techniques, which require efficient emitters to...

Im Focus: How to induce magnetism in graphene

Graphene, a two-dimensional structure made of carbon, is a material with excellent mechanical, electronic and optical properties. However, it did not seem suitable for magnetic applications. Together with international partners, Empa researchers have now succeeded in synthesizing a unique nanographene predicted in the 1970s, which conclusively demonstrates that carbon in very specific forms has magnetic properties that could permit future spintronic applications. The results have just been published in the renowned journal Nature Nanotechnology.

Depending on the shape and orientation of their edges, graphene nanostructures (also known as nanographenes) can have very different properties – for example,...
