From 25 to 26 March, Münster will be a meeting place for the international battery world. The MEET Battery Research Center at Münster University (WWU) and the Haus der Technik from Essen will again be hosting the conference “Advanced Battery Power – Automotive and Energy Supply Solutions”.
Visitors can look forward to a variety-filled programme covering the entire value chain of the battery, with 60 talks and more than 100 scientific posters. Participants can find out about current developments in the sector, ranging from materials research, battery and cell development to practical use in electric vehicles and stationary storage devices. A detailed agenda can now be found on the conference's webpage.
Speakers include Prof. Andreas Jossen from the Technical University of München, who will examine battery safety issues, and Dr. Menahem Andermann from Total Battery Consulting, who will discuss the development of the market for electric vehicles. Dr. Winfried Wilcke from the IBM Research Center in San José/USA will highlight the future potential of lithium-air systems, and Dr. Kazunori Ozawa, one of the developers of the first lithium-ion battery, will speak about the pioneering activities of Sony in the area of lithium-ion technology. An exhibition will complement the programme. Prof. Martin Winter from Münster University and Prof. Dirk Uwe Sauer from the RWTH Aachen University will again be in charge of the scientific oversight of the event.
On the day before the conference, 24 March, Battery Day NRW will take place under the patronage of Svenja Schulze, the Minister for Innovation, Science and Research of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia. It will focus on activities in the battery sector across the state. Up to 600 participants are expected to attend the two events. The venue is the Messe und Congress Centrum Halle Münsterland. At the conclusion of Battery Day NRW and of the second conference day of Advanced Battery Power, participants will also have the opportunity to visit the MEET Battery Research Center.
All further information and advice on how to register can be found on the event's webpage at http://www.battery-power.eu.

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.
The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.
Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...
Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.
Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
