Empa Innovation Award for new flame retardant

The Empa Innovation Award 2016 went to chemist Sabyasachi Gaan and his team. The researchers were recognized for the development of new, non-toxic and environmentally friendly fireproofing agents for the production of flame retard polyurethane foams, which are used in mattresses, seat upholstery and insulation modules for house façades, for instance. The prize was awarded on November 8 against the backdrop of the Empa Technology and Innovation Forum.

We frequently encounter polyurethane (PU) foams in everyday life: they are in the insulation in house façades and refrigerators, in car seats, in living room...

Digital Simulations for Real World Engines and Turbines: FVV awards Hans Dinger Prize 2016

New digital simulation methods allow engineers to develop clean and sustainable engines and turbines. This is the conclusion of the 2016 contest of the Hans Dinger Prize (HDP). The Forschungsvereinigung Verbrennungskraftmaschinen (FVV, Research Association for Combustion Engines) awarded its young researchers prize for the sixth time this year. It recognises the excellence of the scientific work of young scientists contributing to the success of the association’s industrial collective research (IGF) projects. This year’s awardees are graduates from the universities of Aachen, Hannover and Stuttgart. The winner received 3,000 Euros.

The 2016 award went to Lukas Berger, RWTH Aachen University, who studied in his master thesis the formation of soot emissions in aircraft gas turbine engines...

IHP Project reaches Final Round of European Innovation Radar Prize

The IHP involved European research project “myAirCoach” received more than 1,000 votes in the online voting of the European Innovation Radar Prize 2016. It was ranked first out of 10 competitors in its category “Horizon 2020 ICT”. Thus, it is qualified for the finals in Bratislava on September 26th now, where a 3 minutes “pitch” presentation will be given. An experienced coach offers advice how to successfully present the idea in front of a jury against the three remaining competitors in the category. The project may also end up as the European overall winner across all four categories.

As part of the EU project “myAirCoach”, researchers from IHP – Innovations for High Performance Microelectronics develop an intelligent adapter for standard...

Im Focus: Developing reliable quantum computers

International research team makes important step on the path to solving certification problems

Quantum computers may one day solve algorithmic problems which even the biggest supercomputers today can’t manage. But how do you test a quantum computer to...

Im Focus: In best circles: First integrated circuit from self-assembled polymer

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.

In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...

Im Focus: Demonstration of a single molecule piezoelectric effect

Breakthrough provides a new concept of the design of molecular motors, sensors and electricity generators at nanoscale

Researchers from the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry of the CAS (IOCB Prague), Institute of Physics of the CAS (IP CAS) and Palacký University...

Im Focus: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.

But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...

Im Focus: Stem cell divisions in the adult brain seen for the first time

Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.

The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
