Amended German translation of the Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods has been published (BAM-Press Release No. 1/2015)
The corrected and revised 2015 version of the German translation of the Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods – Manual of Tests and Criteria – 5th revised edition, New York and Geneva 2009, prepared by the Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM) is now available.
It can be downloaded as a pdf file from the BAM website from the address http://www.bam.de/de/service/publikationen/handbuecher.htm free of charge.
The revised and expanded 2015 German translation contains additions and changes according to Amendment 1 and Amendment 2 such as changes in Test Series 7 and 8 and Test Series H, changes in the test methods required for the classification of desensitized liquid explosives and Class 3 flammable liquid substances, a new test method for oxidizing solids and changes in the T6 test for lithium batteries.
This revision, legally enacted on 1 January 2015 by referring to the regulations for the Transport of Dangerous Goods via different modes of Transport: ADR 2015, RID 2015 and ADN 2015 for the European road, rail and inland waterway transport with a transitional period of six months, the IMDG Code Amendment 37-14 for sea transport with a one-year toleration period and ICAO -TI 2015-2016 for aviation without a transition period.

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.
This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.
"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...
In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.
A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...
By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
