Sensors that detect contaminants in water
Many organic contaminants in the air and in drinking water need to be detected at very low-level concentrations.
Artificial muscle as shock absorber
Engineers are working on intelligent materials that can diminish vibrations and extract power from the environment. These electro-active elastomers could dampen annoying vibrations in a car, for example, or supply wireless power to sensors in otherwise inaccessible places.
Microreactors to produce explosive materials
The larger the reaction vessel, the quicker products can be made - or so you might think.
3D laser scaning a passenger train's position
Is a contact wire missing or is it faulty? What's the situation in front of the entrance to a railway station or a tunnel? A 3D laser scanner can increase the train's safety and reliability.
Plasma nozzle applied coatings
These coatings offer protection against rust, scratches and moisture and improve adhesion: Surfaces with a nano coating. A new plasma process enables these coatings to be applied more easily and cost-efficiently on an industrial scale.
Lubrication without oil?
Running nicely this applies even more to aqueous biopolymer solutions than to oil. These solutions are used as a cooling lubricant for machining hard metals and for tool-making machinery on which tools are manufactured.
Graphene boosts efficiency of next-gen solar cells
The coolest new nanomaterial of the 21st century could boost the efficiency of the next generation of solar panels, a team of Michigan Technological University materials scientists has discovered.
Contact-free analysis of chemical substances
Is it drugs, medicines or explosives? At the Analytica trade fair, Fraunhofer researchers, joined by the Hubner Company, are presenting a terahertz spectrometer that provides reliable, contact-free identification of substances.
Mass Production with Carbon-Fiber-Reinforced Plastics CRP
Cars and airplanes need to lose weight and one way to do that is to produce as many of the components as possible using carbon-fiber-reinforced plastics CRP. Up until now, these components have been made by hand. Today, there are automated production methods that are also suitable for volume production in carmaking.
Ball bearings set to help with fuel efficiency in hybrid vehicles
Because of a more efficient integration of the engine and electric motor, which in turn has encouraged a culture of lowering fuel consumption and fuel emissions, the demand for hybrid vehicles has dramatically increased in recent years.
