At a ceremony held at the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion at the Fira in Barcelona, Jordi Hereu the Major of Barcelona and Enric Banda the ESOF2008 Barcelona President passed on the honour of hosting ESOF2010 to Turin’s Major Sergio Chiamparino, and President of ESOF2010 Enrico Predazzi. The event will be held in Turin, the Piedmontese capital city, from 2 to 7 July 2010.
ESOF2010 will bring together leading organisations from 40 European countries and over 2000 participants, including scientists, teachers, the media, politicians, businessmen and the public, to focus on research and scientific innovation. Turin has an important role as a ‘crossroad of innovation’ – a city long involved in bringing people together and exchanging views on societal policies, supporting research, and especially in engaging young people in science.
The transfer ceremony featured 40 Italian students, who won awards in the ‘Catch the Bus Science’ scheme, media partner ‘La Stampa’, and the Turin Local Organising Committee which is a partnership involving CentroScienza Onlus, Agorà Scienza – University of Turin, Compagnia di San Paolo. A‘logo puzzle’ manoeuvred by 18 enthusiastic science explainers took part in the transfer of the ESOF commitment.

Scientists at the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT have come up with a striking new addition to contact stamping technologies in the ERDF research project ScanCut. In collaboration with industry partners from North Rhine-Westphalia, the Aachen-based team of researchers developed a hybrid manufacturing process for the laser cutting of thin-walled metal strips. This new process makes it possible to fabricate even the tiniest details of contact parts in an eco-friendly, high-precision and efficient manner.

An international research team with Prof. Cornelia Denz from the Institute of Applied Physics at the University of Münster develop for the first time light fields using caustics that do not change during propagation. With the new method, the physicists cleverly exploit light structures that can be seen in rainbows or when light is transmitted through drinking glasses.
Modern applications as high resolution microsopy or micro- or nanoscale material processing require customized laser beams that do not change during...
