M+W Zander offers particle measurement cabinet for development of soot particle filters
M+W Zander has developped with partners a special Particle Measurement Cabinet (PMC) for the automobile industry. It prevents measurements of soot particles from being affected by interferences caused by mechanical vibrations as well as fluctuations in temperature and humidity. The PMC has already been sold to a number of automobile manufacturers and suppliers.
Development and qualification of soot particle filters for diesel fuelled engines require an extensive series of tests. Mechanical vibrations and fluctuations in temperature and atmospheric humidity make evaluation of these measurements difficult. The particle measurement cabinet developed by M+W Zander Products GmbH provides the necessary ambient conditions for carrying out gravimetric measurements. This isolates the measuring system from vibrations, ensures adequate temperature and humidity control and is in conformity with air cleanliness class 5 (3,520 particles per cubic meter of air, for a particle size at 0.5 millions of a meter). It already fulfills the conditions for standardized evaluations, as prescribed globally from 2007 in conformity with the statutory regulations specified by the American Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
