3rd GEOTECHNOLOGIEN Keynote lecture

30.03.2012
The Research and Development programme GEOTECHNOLOGIEN invites to its 3rd Keynote Lecture at the EGU General Assembly in Vienna.
Dr. Volker Steinbach, Head of The German Mineral Resources Agency, will talk about “Developments and Trends in the Availability of Non-Ferrous Mineral Raw Materials; with a Special Focus on High-Tech Metals”.

The worldwide demand for raw materials is continuously increasing. Apart from fossil fuels, a number of non-ferrous minerals are becoming more and more important for different industrial sectors, particularly for the high-tech industry. Caused by the shortage of specific minerals and their increasing prices the mining industry has been reactivated in various countries. Furthermore, agreements on raw material supply are of major interest, especially for developed countries.
Dr. Volker Steinbach, Head of The German Mineral Resources Agency, will talk about “Developments and Trends in the Availability of Non-Ferrous Mineral Raw Materials; with a Special Focus on High-Tech Metals” during the EGU conference in Vienna.

The talk takes place on April 24, 7 pm, room 13, Austria Center Vienna.

The key note lecture is an initiative of the research and development programme GEOTECHNOLOGIEN, a geoscientific programme funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and the German Research Foundation (DFG).

To learn more about the R&D programme GEOTECHNOLOGIEN please visit us at our booth “Research in Germany” in the entrance hall (Booth No 25).

Im Focus: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
