Building lightweight trains
The less trains weigh, the more economical they are to run. A new material capable of withstanding even extreme stresses has now been developed.
Autonomous transport shuttles
On its own, an ant is not particularly clever. But in a community, the insects can solve complicated tasks. Researchers intend to put this "swarm intelligence" to use in the logistics field. Lots of autonomous transport shuttles would provide an alternative to traditional materials-handling technology.
Implant to replace defective venous valve
If heart valves don't close properly, they are replaced. Conventional treatment of venous valve failure, however, has up to now always and exclusively been via medication. In future, an implant will assume the function of damaged valves - and a new dispensing tool means these prostheses can be made using an automated process.
Automating Your Doctors Lab Work
Biomedical laboratories have to be safe, ergonomic and flexible. At the same time, labs need to be able to deal with a high throughput of samples while reliably documenting each step in the testing process.
Technology rapidly detects infectious disease
Infectious diseases can spread very rapidly, so quickly identifying them can be crucial to stopping an epidemic - However, current testing for such diseases can take hours and days. But not for much longer
Automated web application stress testing
Computer scientists from Saarland University are working on automatic methods of testing, which check complex web applications autonomously.
Ultraviolet light-emitting nanocrystal diodes
A multinational team of scientists has developed a process for creating glass-based, inorganic light-emitting diodes (LEDs) that produce light in the ultraviolet range.
Converting heat energy into power when needed
Never get stranded with a dead cell phone again. A promising new technology called Power Felt, a thermoelectric device that converts body heat into an electrical current, soon could create enough juice to make another call simply by touching it.
Researchers develops piezoelectrically active ferroelectric nanotubes
Researchers have developed a "soft template infiltration" technique for fabricating free-standing piezoelectrically active ferroelectric nanotubes and other nanostructures from PZT - a material that is attractive because of its large piezoelectric response.
Materials scientists entering new innovation territory
Solar cells, light emitting diodes, displays and other electronic devices could get a bump in performance because of a discovery at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory that establishes new boundaries for controlling band gaps.
