Solar Summit Freiburg 2012 – Highlights and Trends in Solar Energy

03.08.2012
Focus “The Future Sustainable City” - October 18-19, 2012

On October 18-19, 2012, the International Conference on Highlights and Trends in Solar Energy, Solar Summit Freiburg, will be held at the “Konzerthaus” conference center in Freiburg.

The conference will provide an overview of solar energy conversion technologies. In addition to the latest research and development, discussions will also cover current market and political trends. This year, the focus of the conference is sustainable urban development, under the headline “The Future Sustainable City”.

The “Solar Summit Freiburg 2012” program is divided into the following subjects: Intelligent transformation of our energy supply, the focus subject “The Future Sustainable City” and trends in solar technology, such as heating and cooling, storage technologies and photovoltaics. Renowned international speakers and experts from the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE will present the topics and discuss them with participants.

“Once again, we are looking forward to lively discussions and networking with participants from a variety of fields, such as industry and politics, research and technology, as well as investors, banks and the media,” says Prof. Eicke R. Weber, scientific chair of the conference and Director of Fraunhofer ISE.

“The Solar Summit is an excellent platform which allows all the sectors involved in the energy revolution to carry out the vital task of sharing their knowledge and ideas; Fraunhofer ISE’s portfolio covers a wide range of these subjects.”

The Solar Summit Freiburg conferences are hosted by the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE, supported by FWTM and Messe München, and organised by PSE AG from Freiburg. For more information please visit http://www.solar-summit-2012.org

Im Focus: High-pressure scientists in Bayreuth discover promising material for information technology

Researchers at the University of Bayreuth have discovered an unusual material: When cooled down to two degrees Celsius, its crystal structure and electronic properties change abruptly and significantly. In this new state, the distances between iron atoms can be tailored with the help of light beams. This opens up intriguing possibilities for application in the field of information technology. The scientists have presented their discovery in the journal "Angewandte Chemie - International Edition". The new findings are the result of close cooperation with partnering facilities in Augsburg, Dresden, Hamburg, and Moscow.

The material is an unusual form of iron oxide with the formula Fe₅O₆. The researchers produced it at a pressure of 15 gigapascals in a high-pressure laboratory...

Im Focus: From China to the South Pole: Joining forces to solve the neutrino mass puzzle

Study by Mainz physicists indicates that the next generation of neutrino experiments may well find the answer to one of the most pressing issues in neutrino physics

Among the most exciting challenges in modern physics is the identification of the neutrino mass ordering. Physicists from the Cluster of Excellence PRISMA+ at...

Im Focus: Therapies without drugs

Fraunhofer researchers are investigating the potential of microimplants to stimulate nerve cells and treat chronic conditions like asthma, diabetes, or Parkinson’s disease. Find out what makes this form of treatment so appealing and which challenges the researchers still have to master.

A study by the Robert Koch Institute has found that one in four women will suffer from weak bladders at some point in their lives. Treatments of this condition...

Im Focus: A step towards controlling spin-dependent petahertz electronics by material defects

The operational speed of semiconductors in various electronic and optoelectronic devices is limited to several gigahertz (a billion oscillations per second). This constrains the upper limit of the operational speed of computing. Now researchers from the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter in Hamburg, Germany, and the Indian Institute of Technology in Bombay have explained how these processes can be sped up through the use of light waves and defected solid materials.

Light waves perform several hundred trillion oscillations per second. Hence, it is natural to envision employing light oscillations to drive the electronic...

Im Focus: Freiburg researcher investigate the origins of surface texture

Most natural and artificial surfaces are rough: metals and even glasses that appear smooth to the naked eye can look like jagged mountain ranges under the microscope. There is currently no uniform theory about the origin of this roughness despite it being observed on all scales, from the atomic to the tectonic. Scientists suspect that the rough surface is formed by irreversible plastic deformation that occurs in many processes of mechanical machining of components such as milling.

Prof. Dr. Lars Pastewka from the Simulation group at the Department of Microsystems Engineering at the University of Freiburg and his team have simulated such...
