Hannover Messe 2016

The AG Magnetismus was recently present at the Hannover Messe 2016, with almost 200.000 visitors being the world’s biggest industrial fair. We presented our industry-related research and other activities at the stand of the State of Rhineland-Palatinate in the hall for Research & Technology. In particular, we presented the results of the successfully concluded STeP project (Spintronic Technology Platform Rhineland-Palatinate) which was recently awarded with the Innovation Award Rhineland-Palatinate 2016 (Innovationspreis Rheinland-Pfalz 2016) in the category 'Cooperation'. STeP is a technology platform to quickly and directly translate scientific findings from physics to industrial standards and it is designed especially to make new technologies accessible to small and medium businesses. The partners have achieved significant progress in the development of novel magnetic sensors.

Together with interesting discussions with members of the engineering and sensoric community, we also use our presence at the fair to contact and motivate students for physics and related sciences and to communicate the enormous social payback of research in this field to the general public.
