State-of-the-Art Geosciences Laboratory Opened

Juni 29, 2009

An advanced science laboratory has officially been launched on June 26, 2009 at the University of Monash, Victoria, Australia by the Minister for Innovation, Industry, Science and Research Kim Carr. The $1 million Earth Sciences teaching laboratory will provide students with the latest in high-tech learning, giving them access to next-generation computer modelling and microscope technology. Head of Geosciences School Professor Ray Cas said the laboratory had the capacity to teach at a microscopic scale via the linking of microscopes with the smart screens. „The laboratory is the most advanced facility of its kind in Australia and the technology it employs is at the cutting-edge internationally,“ Professor Cas said.

Frontiers of Electron Microscopy in Materials Sciences

Mai 25, 2009

The Twelfth Frontiers of Electron Microscopy in Materials Science, FEMMS2009, will take place from Sept. 27 – Oct. 2, 2009 at “Huis Ten Bosch” in Sasebo/Nagasaki in Kyushu Island, Japan. FEMMS is an international a biennial symposium series focused on the application of electron microscopy, primarily TEM, in the field of materials science. The conference contains a plenary talk, 9 sessions of invited talks and poster sessions of contributed papers. The sessions cover recent progresses and emerging trends, such as current instrument advances in TEM, SEM, HVEM and detecting systems, ultra-high resolution imaging and analysis, in-situ and ultra-fast analysis, 3-dimensional analysis, and so on. Dr. Akira Tonomura, a world renowned pioneer in the field of electron holography, will give a plenary talk as the distinguished lectureship award winner.

SPIE Photonics West Offers New Insights

Januar 19, 2009

Advances in photonics research with applications touching nearly every aspect of life will draw 17,500 scientists and industry leaders to SPIE Photonics West to San Jose, CA, U.S., from Jan. 24-29, 2009. Photonics West addresses experts in biomedical optics, lasers, MOEMS/MEMS, and optoelectronics. The week-long event offers research presentations, two exhibitions, industry executive panels, a continuing education program, a career fair, and numerous networking events. Both exhibitions and panels are open to registrants at no charge.

Panel topics include:

  • Silicon photonics and optical interconnects
  • Hot markets in photonics: solar
  • Perspectives on the world of photonics
  • Applications of high-power solid state lasers

The exhibition will include more than 1,100 companies showing the latest in components, systems, and applications for optics and photonics manufacturing, electronic imaging, infrared sources and detectors, optical detectors, fibers and materials, cameras and displays, and other innovations.
