International scientists get to know the Federal Cluster of Excellence in Chemnitz

18.10.2013
On 24. and 25. October 2013 the “International MERGE Technologies Conference (IMTC) for Lightweight Structures” takes place - presentation from representatives of the industry and researchers

One year after the start of the Federal Cluster of Excellence “Merge Technologies for Multifunctional Lightweight Structures” at Technische Universität Chemnitz Professor Lothar Kroll, CEO, and Dr. Jürgen Tröltzsch, COO, invite to the first international conference on 24. and 25. October 2013 in Chemnitz.

The “International MERGE Technologies Conference (IMTC) for Lightweight Structures” takes place at the Virtual Reality Center from the Fraunhofer Institute for Machine Tools and Forming Technology (IWU), Reichenhainer Str. 88.

About 200 visitors from over 10 nations are expected to the conference at Chemnitz. Greeting words come from representatives from politics, industry and academia. The main focus of the IMTC lies on four themes:
- Session 1 „Composites“, Chair: Professor Bernhard Wielage
- Session 2 „Metal-based hybrids“, Chair: PD Welf-Guntram Drossel
- Session 3 „Lightweight structures“, Chair: Professor Thomas Lampke
- Session 4 „Smart systems integration”, Chair: Professor Thomas Geßner
“It is to highlight the worldwide unique combination of different academic disciplines in key enabling technologies within the Cluster MERGE. The importance is shown by the balanced mixture of speakers”, says Dr. Tröltzsch. Apart from presentation from representatives of the industry, the researchers of MERGE show their latest works and results in their specific research area. The IMTC 2013 is an intersection for the experts from academia and industry with regard to resource efficiency in mass production of hybrid technologies and lightweight structures. Professor Kroll emphasises, that “by merging individual material-specific manufacturing processes for the mass production of lightweight structures, considerable savings of energy and material will be attained”.

For further information please contact: Dr. Jürgen Tröltzsch, COO of the Cluster of Excellence MERGE, phone: +49 (0)371 531-35665, Email: juergen.troeltzsch@mb.tu-chemnitz.de, or visit the MERGE website: http://www.tu-chemnitz.de/MERGE

Im Focus: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

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...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

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...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

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...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

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...
