Laser use for neurosurgery and biofabrication - LaserForum 2016 focuses on medical technology

27.09.2016

This year’s LaserForum will be held on November 3, 2016 at NIFE, Lower Saxony Centre for Biomedical Engineering, Implant Research and Development in Hanover, Germany. It will be titled "Laseranwendungen in der Medizin" (Medical Laser Appplications).

This year, the annual German meeting point for experts will focus on the use of lasers in medical research, in the field of neurosurgery, biomedical engineering and implant research.


LaserForum is the annual German meeting point for laser experts

IVAM

A keynote presentation of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT deals with the question whether the production of artificial organs by additive laser manufacturing will be fiction or reality.

The event is aimed at developers, manufacturers and users of laser technology. The LaserForum is organized by IVAM Microtechnology Network in cooperation with renowned partners:

Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT, Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. and the Chair of Applied Laser Technologies (LAT) of Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB).

Detailed information on the program and the event can be found at http://ivam.de/LaserForum16.

Im Focus: Happy hour for time-resolved crystallography

Researchers from the Department of Atomically Resolved Dynamics of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg, the University of Hamburg and the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) outstation in the city have developed a new method to watch biomolecules at work. This method dramatically simplifies starting enzymatic reactions by mixing a cocktail of small amounts of liquids with protein crystals. Determination of the protein structures at different times after mixing can be assembled into a time-lapse sequence that shows the molecular foundations of biology.

The functions of biomolecules are determined by their motions and structural changes. Yet it is a formidable challenge to understand these dynamic motions.

Im Focus: Modular OLED light strips

At the International Symposium on Automotive Lighting 2019 (ISAL) in Darmstadt from September 23 to 25, 2019, the Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP, a provider of research and development services in the field of organic electronics, will present OLED light strips of any length with additional functionalities for the first time at booth no. 37.

Almost everyone is familiar with light strips for interior design. LED strips are available by the metre in DIY stores around the corner and are just as often...

Im Focus: The working of a molecular string phone

Researchers from the Department of Atomically Resolved Dynamics of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg, the University of Potsdam (both in Germany) and the University of Toronto (Canada) have pieced together a detailed time-lapse movie revealing all the major steps during the catalytic cycle of an enzyme. Surprisingly, the communication between the protein units is accomplished via a water-network akin to a string telephone. This communication is aligned with a ‘breathing’ motion, that is the expansion and contraction of the protein.

This time-lapse sequence of structures reveals dynamic motions as a fundamental element in the molecular foundations of biology.
