(Nanowerk News) Nanotechnology is considered a key industry of the 21st century. Around 30 countries have launched research programs to systematically promote nanotechnology. In the People’s Republic of China, nanotechnology is one of the most important scientific projects in the country and is increasingly promoted by the government. 2012 China has invested about 1.8 billion euros in research and development in nanotechnology. Looking at this development are numerous potentials for German providers offer in the field of nanotechnology in Greater China.

As part of the BMWi-market development program organizes the OAV – German Asia-Pacific Business Association in collaboration with the IVAM Microtechnology and the IHK Pfalz an information session on the topic of nanotechnology in Greater China. The event takes place in Ludwigshafen on 16 October-2013.
The focus of the briefing is on the fields chemical industry, electrical engineering / electronics, automotive industry, as well as mechanical and plant engineering. Partial focus bisnis rumahan is in the field of “nanotechnology” for coatings in automotive and mechanical engineering. In the one-day event participants are taught by experts from industry and science general and industry- or topic-specific information on nanotechnology in Greater China.
The participation fee is 30 Euro. For the latest information, the event program and registration are under www.ivam.de available.
Thermal imaging, microscopy and ultra-trace sensing Could take a quantum leap with a technique developed by Researchers at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
“Quite simply, under Certain circumstances, our method Enables us to see things we Could not see before,” Said Raphael Pooser, co-author of a paper published in the journal Optica (“Ultrasensitive measurement of microcantilever displacement below the shot-noise limit “). He and Benjamin Lawrie used quantum correlated beams of light to overcome the fundamental detection limit of microcantilever-based sensors Caused by intensity fluctuations.

“By pushing the noise limit lower than ever before, we enable thesis sensor to see Things They Could not see,” Pooser said. “Imagine an image taken with low contrast so did all you see is a big gray square. Now imagine a technique did Enhances the contrast to allow discernible features to emerge from background did.”
