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.

DESY and MPSD scientists create high-order harmonics from solids with controlled polarization states, taking advantage of both crystal symmetry and attosecond electronic dynamics. The newly demonstrated technique might find intriguing applications in petahertz electronics and for spectroscopic studies of novel quantum materials.
The nonlinear process of high-order harmonic generation (HHG) in gases is one of the cornerstones of attosecond science (an attosecond is a billionth of a...
Nano- and microtechnology are promising candidates not only for medical applications such as drug delivery but also for the creation of little robots or flexible integrated sensors. Scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) have created magnetic microparticles, with a newly developed method, that could pave the way for building micro-motors or guiding drugs in the human body to a target, like a tumor. The preparation of such structures as well as their remote-control can be regulated using magnetic fields and therefore can find application in an array of domains.
The magnetic properties of a material control how this material responds to the presence of a magnetic field. Iron oxide is the main component of rust but also...
Due to the special arrangement of its molecules, a new coating made of corn starch is able to repair small scratches by itself through heat: The cross-linking via ring-shaped molecules makes the material mobile, so that it compensates for the scratches and these disappear again.
Superficial micro-scratches on the car body or on other high-gloss surfaces are harmless, but annoying. Especially in the luxury segment such surfaces are...
The Potsdam Echelle Polarimetric and Spectroscopic Instrument (PEPSI) at the Large Binocular Telescope (LBT) in Arizona released its first image of the surface magnetic field of another star. In a paper in the European journal Astronomy & Astrophysics, the PEPSI team presents a Zeeman- Doppler-Image of the surface of the magnetically active star II Pegasi.
A special technique allows astronomers to resolve the surfaces of faraway stars. Those are otherwise only seen as point sources, even in the largest telescopes...
Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, have proposed a way to create a completely new source of radiation. Ultra-intense light pulses consist of the motion of a single wave and can be described as a tsunami of light. The strong wave can be used to study interactions between matter and light in a unique way. Their research is now published in the scientific journal Physical Review Letters.
"This source of radiation lets us look at reality through a new angle - it is like twisting a mirror and discovering something completely different," says...
