PowerCell (SE), a joint venture between Volvo (SE) and StatoilHydro (NO), was established in 2005 for development and commercialization of PEM fuel cell systems for Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) applications. In this project Volvo Technology (SE) will in close cooperation with SINTEF (NO) provide R&D support for PowerCell for further technology development. This collaboration is based on Volvo Technology’s PEM fuel cell stack development and SINTEF’s experience with advanced PEM fuel cell characterization over the last 15 years.
The improved PEM fuel cell stack will be demonstrated by implementing it in a vehicle for niche transport applications powered by hydrogen. H2 Logic (DK) will provide system integration experience and lead the work of assembling a more reliable and efficient system.
The partners aim at reducing system cost significantly as well as incorporating the capability of sub-zero temperature operation. This way the project will contribute to enhancing the competitiveness of the technology and its viability for cold Nordic climate applications. Experiences from fuel cell system operation will be shared with SMEs and OEMs in an open Nordic workshop to facilitate knowledge transfer and development of next generation PEM fuel cell technology aiming at further reduction in cost and increased efficiency and durability.

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.
At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...
There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?
At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
So-called quantum many-body scars allow quantum systems to stay out of equilibrium much longer, explaining experiment | Study published in Nature Physics
Recently, researchers from Harvard and MIT succeeded in trapping a record 53 atoms and individually controlling their quantum state, realizing what is called a...
The historic first detection of gravitational waves from colliding black holes far outside our galaxy opened a new window to understanding the universe. A...
A team led by Austrian experimental physicist Rainer Blatt has succeeded in characterizing the quantum entanglement of two spatially separated atoms by observing their light emission. This fundamental demonstration could lead to the development of highly sensitive optical gradiometers for the precise measurement of the gravitational field or the earth's magnetic field.
The age of quantum technology has long been heralded. Decades of research into the quantum world have led to the development of methods that make it possible...
