For almost two years now, the demand for baby milk powder could not be covered. Moreover, the demand for German milk powder from third countries has increased strongly.
Amongst other things, this is due to a milk powder scandal in China where babies fell ill and even died because of poisonous milk powder.
With Heraeus analytical light sources, it is possible to track metalliferous substances or chemical compounds such as melamine in food products.
For this purpose, Heraeus hollow cathode lamps are used as light sources in the atomic absorption spectroscopy, which is based on the principle of the absorption of light. This method is applied for quantitative and qualitative analysis.
In order to maintain the quality of the milk powder also during the filling and packaging process, it is necessary to have a germfree environment.
For the disinfection during the filling of powders, a dry process is needed. Ultraviolet radiation is suitable in this context.
Specifically used, viruses and bacteria on packaging surfaces are deactivated within seconds. In comparison to wet chemical processes, the disinfection with Heraeus UV systems is reliable and environmentally friendly at the same time.

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...
Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...
A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
