The Institute of Physics recognises this and is launching a new website, http://environmentalresearchweb.org, a central source of information on these issues covering the whole of environmental science with articles by leading environmental scientists from academia and industry.
The site combines news articles on current issues with opinion pieces, links with environmental journals, a comprehensive database of organisations in the field and an up-to-date events calendar.
Liz Kalaugher, editor of the new website, said: “The site is aimed at people who are already interested in topics covered by environmental science such as climate change and the development of biofuels, whether they are policy makers, working in industry, members of the public, or part of the environmental science community.”
“Environmentalresearchweb will provide people with much more in depth information on, for example the science behind climate change and other environmental issues and enable them to learn more about what is being done to tackle these problems.”
Other articles now live on the site include details of a new Energy Biosciences Institute in the US funded by energy giant BP, how environmental researchers are using satellite mapping tools to help their work, why climate data derived from 6500-year-old coral has serious implications for drought in western Indonesia, and a summary of the IPCC report.
The site also has links to new articles from the open access IOP Publishing journal Environmental Research Letters, launched earlier this year. Registration for membership of environmentalresearchweb is free - members will gain free access to premium content, receive a weekly newsletter and be able to update the site with their comments, details of their events and their company.

In a recent publication in the renowned journal Optica, scientists of Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz IPHT) in Jena showed that they can accurately control the optical properties of liquid-core fiber lasers and therefore their spectral band width by temperature and pressure tuning.
Already last year, the researchers provided experimental proof of a new dynamic of hybrid solitons– temporally and spectrally stationary light waves resulting...

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...
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.
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...
