Erster IEEE 5G Summit auf deutschem Boden: 5G Lab Germany in Dresden gehört zur Weltspitze der Mobilfunk-Entwicklung

Pressemitteilung des 5G Lab Germany - Dresden, 22. September 2016

Published on in PRESS RELEASES / PRESSEMITTEILUNGEN

In Dresden wird die nächste Generation der mobilen Kommunikation maßgeblich entwickelt. Sie ermöglicht die tiefgreifende Digitalisierung von Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft.

Die fünfte Generation des Mobilfunks, genannt 5G, wird maßgeblich in Dresden entwickelt. Dreh- und Angelpunkt dieser Forschung ist das 5G Lab Germany an der Technischen Universität (TUD). Am 29. September 2016 veranstaltet das 5G Lab gemeinsam mit dem IEEE, dem weltgrößten Verband der Elektro- und Informationstechnik-Ingenieure, den ersten IEEE 5G Dresden Summit im Internationalen Kongresszentrum in Dresden. Diese Konferenz war in den letzten Jahren in Princeton, Toronto, dem Silicon Valley und Indien zu Gast und wird nun erstmalig in Deutschland durchgeführt. Das Gipfeltreffen stellt eine Plattform für führende Industrievertreter und Wissenschaftler zum Austausch von Ideen und zur Anbahnung von Zusammenarbeiten in dieser Schlüsseltechnologie dar, um die Standardisierung und Umsetzung von innovativen Lösungen voranzutreiben.

On September 16, Nobel Prize Laureate Professor Sir Konstantin S. Novoselov FRS (University of Manchester) will present his lecture ‘Graphene: Materials in the Flatland’ at TU Dresden. The talk will be given within cfaed's Distinguished Lecture Series which invites top scientists to Dresden.

Professor Sir Novoselov is one of the ‘inventors’ of the ‘wonder material’ graphene. This truly single-layered carbon allotrope was first discovered in 2004 by Konstantin Novoselov and Andre Geim. After the isolation of monolayer graphene and characterizing it, the two scientists published a paper about the vast potential of the material’s properties. In 2010, Novoselov and Geim received the Nobel Prize in Physics “… for groundbreaking experiments regarding the two-dimensional material graphene”. Graphene consists of a single layer of carbon atoms that are bonded together in a hexagonal pattern. The material is ultra-light and immensely strong at the same time, conducts both electricity and heat better than copper and can be utilized in numerous disciplines.

INSPIRE Grant Report by PhD Student Anja Förster - Michigan State University

My stay at the Michigan State University: From the ‘Birthplace of Volleyball’ to the ‘Windy City’

Published on in NEWS

The Inspire Grant gave me the opportunity to spend three eventful and scientifically fruitful months in the group of Prof. David Tománek at the Michigan State University (MSU) in East Lansing. Three days after my arrival the whole group went on a road trip to South Hadley, known as the ‘Birthplace of Volleyball’. The cause of our trip was not a sport competition but rather the Gordon Research Conference on 2-dimensional (2D) materials beyond graphene. This gave me the chance to present my latest findings to a wide audience of experts on 2D materials. Prof. Gotthard Seifert, my doctoral adviser, also attended the conference. We used the opportunity to together work out a working plan for my stay.

Nobel Prize Laureate Konstantin S. Novoselov FRS To Visit cfaed

Graphene: The "Wonder Material” of Our Century

Published on in NEWS

On September 16, Professor Konstantin S. Novoselov FRS holds his Nobel Lecture “Graphene: Materials in the Flatland” at TU Dresden. The talk will take place within cfaed's "Distinguished Lecture Series" which invites top tier guests to come to Dresden.

Sir Konstantin Novoselov was distinguished by the Nobel Committee for Physics “for groundbreaking experiments regarding the two-dimensional material graphene”.

Thinner than paper, lighter than a feather, stronger than steel and better at conducting both electricity and heat than copper: graphene has been called as “the new wonder material of the 21st century”. Graphene consists of a layer of carbon atoms that are bonded together in a hexagonal pattern and form the graphite, commonly found in pencils. The material can be utilized in numerous disciplines.
