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.

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.
Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...
For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.
While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...
An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.
The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...
A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.
Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
Researchers from the University of Miami (UM) Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, the Italian Space Agency (ASI), and the Instituto Geofisico--Escuela Politecnica Nacional (IGEPN) of Ecuador, showed an increasing volcanic danger on Cotopaxi in Ecuador using a powerful technique known as Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR).
The Andes region in which Cotopaxi volcano is located is known to contain some of the world's most serious volcanic hazard. A mid- to large-size eruption has...
