Beauty is in the moth's eyes
Beauty is in the moth's eyes If you wear glasses, you are probably reading this article by looking through a tiny, transparent layer of nanomaterial.
Tilmann Leisegang: "Towards a miniature X-ray laboratory"
Tilmann Leisegang: "Towards a miniature X-ray laboratory" More than a century after their discovery, X-rays still claim their place in medicine and science.
Eco-friendly trains with hybrid energy storage
Eco-friendly trains with hybrid energy storage Hydro-mechanical diesel multiple units (DMUs), multiple unit trains powered by diesel engines, are needed in regional traffic.
Prof. Karsten Voss “It doesn’t make sense to set up a one and only definition in energy codes in Europe”
Prof. Karsten Voss “It doesn’t make sense to set up a one and only definition in energy codes in Europe” Professor Karsten Voss works at the school of architecture at the University of Wuppertal in Germany.
Prof. Andreas Wagner “A remarkable gap of 30% between the planned and the real energy consumption”
Prof. Andreas Wagner “A remarkable gap of 30% between the planned and the real energy consumption” What projects are you working on at the moment? We are involved in a German research program called Energy-optimised Construction. It funds monitoring of buildings.
The Nano Laboratory
The Nano Laboratory Within the European Research Project Fiblys, they have therefore redesigned their microscope to a fully functional nano-laboratory.
A multi-nano tool can introduce something new under the sun
A multi-nano tool can introduce something new under the sun In the European funded project FIBLYS (or FIB anaLYSis) three industry and four research partners from Czech Republic, France, Germany and Switzerland have created a multi-nano tool named FIBLYS .
Christian Mittermayr: “Rapid detection of pathogens in water supply networks increases public security”
Christian Mittermayr: “Rapid detection of pathogens in water supply networks increases public security” Dr. Christian Mittermayr from Lambda GmbH is the Coordinator of the EU research project DINAMICS, involving major European stakeholders from the relevant branches, end users and production system suppliers, ICT providers, SMEs and academic and research institutes.
Nanosized diamonds enable progress in retinal prostheses
Nanosized diamonds enable progress in retinal prostheses An artificial device in the form of a retinal prosthesis can replace dead photoreceptor cells by electrically stimulating the remaining neurons. Two examples of retinal prostheses are digital camera-type electrode arrays and photodiode arrays .
Nano-tuned Solar Cells
Nano-tuned Solar Cells The sun has enough power to supply the whole earth with energy. But as long as renewable energy is more expensive than energy produced by coal or nuclear plants, solar energy won’t be first choice.
Nanotechnological innovations can improve water purification
Nanotechnological innovations can improve water purification Membranes for water purification are used in many applications and different types of membranes are being developed at the moment. No membrane can filter and purify water entirely, but improvements using novel kinds of membranes are made.
Prof. Ivo Rangelow: “Scanning nanocomponents’ surfaces at the atomic level will enable more efficient electronic devices”
Prof. Ivo Rangelow: “Scanning nanocomponents’ surfaces at the atomic level will enable more efficient electronic devices” Prof Ivo Rangelow from the University of Ilmenau is the Scientific Vice Coordinator of the EU research project PRONANO. Researchers of the European project PRONANO have developed a new technology to examine surfaces at the atomic level.
New synthetic hydrogels in 3-D cell culture on the market
New synthetic hydrogels in 3-D cell culture on the market Dr. Brigitte Angres and Dr. Helmut Wurst earlier worked on the development of synthetic hydrogels in 3-D cell culture at the NMI Natural and Medical Sciences Institute at the University of Tübingen in Germany, with financial support from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
Synthetic hydrogels improve testing of active substances in 3-D cell culture
Synthetic hydrogels improve testing of active substances in 3-D cell culture Many researchers culture cells in flat dishes, two-dimensional culture systems. A disadvantage is that the cells behave differently than they would in a living organism.
The 3D Nanoscanner
The 3D Nanoscanner Researchers from the Institute of Micro- and Nanotechnologies in Ilmenau, Germany have developed the new scanning device with a set of highly sensitive needles or cantilevers , each of which is only a few microns wide.
Specialized invisible needles make us see surfaces at the nanoscale
Specialized invisible needles make us see surfaces at the nanoscale A cantilever is a very thin single needle currently used for quality control at the nanoscale, but to improve and speed up the process scientists are developing an array of needles, a cantilever array, functioning simultaneously.
Barriers in bringing nanotechnological innovations to the market
Barriers in bringing nanotechnological innovations to the market Researchers who need help with bringing their innovations to the market can get assistance from established offices of technology transfer .
Dr. Jörg WIND: “Performance of vehicles with fuel cells is twice as high as those with combustion engines, but safety issues cannot be neglected”
Dr. Jörg WIND: “Performance of vehicles with fuel cells is twice as high as those with combustion engines, but safety issues cannot be neglected” The European HySYS project aims to take stock of the elements needed to manufacture an electric vehicle whose electricity is generated by a fuel cell. The fuel cell on board is powered by air and hydrogen.
Hydrogen: The Green Fuel Of The Future
Hydrogen: The Green Fuel Of The Future Together the engineers worked on the fuel cell propulsion system by upgrading the air supply, integrating a humidification system, redesigning the hydrogen supply line and developing a hydrogen sensor concept.
Dr Thomas Hipke: “Aluminium foam to create a new generation of lightweight construction ships”
Dr Thomas Hipke: “Aluminium foam to create a new generation of lightweight construction ships” The vessel Hintsanen designed fulfils all necessary requirements: It has a capacity of over 5000 m3 and runs with natural liquid gas (LNG) to avoid any pollution in case of a spill.
