In a cooperative project of development the German Chemical Society Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker (GDCh), the German National Library of Science and Technology Technische Informationsbibliothek (TIB) Hannover and FIZ CHEMIE Berlin have created Chem.de, a new information and knowledge platform for chemistry. Interfaces both in German and in English are available. The development was funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). It also supports the operational service. Chem.de will be on display at the Online Information 2006 exhibition, London 28 Nov - 30 Nov, Grand Hall, Stand No 322.
Chem.de supports the navigation through German professional education and training, research, conferences and meeting activities in chemistry. The portal is jointly operated by the development partners. Each of them supplies own content, e.g. information on research projects, e-learning courses covering chemistry subjects or conference data. As a supplement many entries are featured with evaluated hyperlinks to further information. Along with this Chem.de provides the community with a discussion forum and informs on vacancies in science and industry. All information provided can be searched using Chem.de as a centralised access point. The basic services are offered for free. If the portal connects to value-added services pop-up windows inform about the conditions of purchase.
About the partners:
The GDCh is the largest chemical society in Europe with approx. 27.000 members from universities, industry and other areas. The GDCh supports chemistry in teaching, research and application and promotes the understanding of chemistry in public.
The TIB Hannover is the German National Library of Science and Technology covering all areas of engineering and its basic sciences, in particular chemistry, information technology, mathematics and physics. The TIB comprehensivly acquires and archives literature from around the world pertaining to engineering and natural sciences. The library places a particular emphasis on acquiring so-called "grey" literature; i.e. conference proceedings, research reports etc.
FIZ CHEMIE Berlin is a state-supported non-profit information agency with more than 25 years experience in digital scientific information services. Its primary task is to provide high-quality information services concerning chemistry, chemical engineering and related fields to science, education and industry.

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...
