Woven Fabric is Actually Electronic Sensor
Researchers have developed a new kind of anti-theft system, based on a woven fabric that triggers an alarm when penetrated by intruders. The smart fabric enables the exact location of the break-in to be identified, and is significantly cheaper than other burglary detection systems. It is also suitable as an invisible means of protecting entire buildings.
Cold Crack-Resistant Steel
Cold cracking in high-strength steel presents major quality assurance challenges for the automotive and machine-building industries, since cracks are difficult to predict, until now.
Wing Icing Protection Using Nanomaterials
When ice builds-up on the wings of aircrafts, it drives up costs and impedes safety and in the worst case scenario, could even cause an aircraft to crash. At the ILA Berlin Air Show from September 11 - 16, researchers will demonstrate new ways to keep ice off of the aircraft's wings (Hall 3, Booth 3221).
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.
