Clean Sky

14.07.2008
Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft creates "green" technologies for aviation

The Joint Technology Initiative (JTI) "Clean Sky" is the name of the hitherto largest EU research programme for the advancement of sustainability and competitiveness in European aviation.

With a budget of 1.6 billion euros, the project is one of the largest combined research programmes in Europe. In six research areas technologies will be developed, with the technological target of realizing an integrated technology demonstrator (ITD). At the Farnborough International Air Show 2008, from 14 to 20 of July in Farnborough, Great Britain, Fraunhofer researchers will inform the public about the project (Hall H4, Booth C7).

A European research consortium of 86 industrial and research partners from 16 nations has set itself the target in the Joint Technology Initiative (JTI) "Clean Sky" to reduce the pollution caused by growing air traffic to a minimum or to keep it within acceptable limits. The research and development work over the next seven years will contribute to reducing the CO2 emissions by 50 percent, the NOx emissions by 80 percent and to halve the noise pollution.

Furthermore, the researchers will develop environmentally-friendly methods, processes, procedures and materials for the design, manufacturing, operation and recycling of aircraft. Alongside leading aviation companies, such as Airbus, Alenia, Dassault Aviation, EADS-CASA, Eurocopter, Liebherr-Aerospace, Safran, Agusta Westland, Thales, Saab AB and Rolls Royce, the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft has a seat on the Governing Board of the programme.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
