Quantum tricks with laser light teach magnetic devices how to think ultra-fast

A USA-Greece collaboration of researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Ames Laboratory & Iowa State University and at the University of Crete & the Foundation for Research & Technology - Hellas (FORTH) in Greece have found a new way to create small magnets by using short laser light pulses. In this way, they were able to switch magnetism at least 1000 times faster than in current magnetic devices. Magnetic switching is used to encode information in hard drives, magnetic memories, and other computing devices. The discovery reported in the April 4 issue of Nature opens the door to terahertz (1012 hertz) memory speeds and moves magnetic switching to the fast lane.

European Certification for FORTH in Cyber Security

In the context of the 38th meeting of the European Network of Computer Emergency Response Teams, which was held in Lisbon, Portugal on 28-30 January 2013, the Computer Emergency Response Team of FORTH (FORTHcert) was awarded the TERENA Trusted Introducer certification

Graphene appointed an EU Future Emerging Technology flagship

The European Commission has chosen Graphene as one of Europe’s first 10-year, 1,000 million euro FET flagships. The mission of Graphene is to take graphene and related layered materials from academic laboratories to society, revolutionize multiple industries and create economic growth and new jobs in Europe.

Research at IMBB identifies a new disorder

Craniosynistosis is a bone condition that can inhibit brain growth in children and affects 1 in 2200 births. Work published in the premier scientific journal Nature Genetics, identifies ERF haploinsufficiency as the genetic cause of a syndromic form of craniosynostosis, the ERF-associated craniosynostosis

IMBB researcher receives the Empeirikeion Foundation Academic Excellence Prize

Nektarios Tavernarakis, a Research Director at the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology (IMBB) of FORTH-Hellas, and a Professor-elect at the Medical School of the University of Crete was awarded today the Grant Academic Excellence Prize of the Empeirikeion Foundation

New optical fibre technology for thermally ultra-durable optical fibre sensors

For a second, consecutive, year research results from the Photonic Materials and Devices Laboratory of FORTH-IESL headed by Dr Stavros Pissadakis, is highlighted in the December issue of Optics & Photonics News. This annual technology review is published under the auspices of the Optical Society of America (OSA) and lists the most exciting and significant research findings that characterized the passing year in Optics and Photonics.

Researchers of the Institute of Computer Science - FORTH received the First Award in software contest organized in Japan

Researchers at the Institute of Computer Science (ICS) Foundation for Research and Technology – Hellas (FORTH) received the First Award in the “Gesture Recognition Challenge” contest with their work titled “Giving a hand to Kinect”

EMBO Young Investigator award at IMBB-FORTH

George A. Garinis, Associate Professor of Genetics at the department of Biology, University of Crete and an affiliated Researcher at the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology (IMBB) of FORTH- Hellas has been awarded today the prestigious EMBO Young Investigator award for his research achievements on delineating the functional role of Nucleotide Excision Repair factors in development and disease

International Award to the Acropolis Museum and FORTH for the laser cleaning of Caryatids

The Acropolis Museum and the Institute of Electronic Structure and Lasers (IESL) of the Foundation for Research and Technology-Hellas (FORTH) have been awarded the biennial Keck Award by the International Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works (IIC) for their common project regarding “Laser rejuvenation of Caryatids opens to the public at the Acropolis Museum: A link between ancient and modern Greece”. The award was given jointly to the team of the Acropolis Museum / the Foundation for Research and Technology-Hellas and for their contribution “towards the promotion of public understanding and appreciation of the accomplishments of the conservation profession”. The ceremony took place on Friday 14th of September 2012, at the closing session of the biennial IIC congress in Vienna, which attracted 350 delegates.

IMBB researchers uncover a universal and potent protective mechanism against neuronal necrosis.

Research at the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology, published today in the premier international scientific journal Nature, reveals a novel molecular mechanism that strongly and generally defends against necrotic cell death triggered by extreme temperature and multiple other insults.
