An open day and there is a fire?

08.09.2009
Certainly. And a rather violent one. And all this for Safety in Engineering and Chemical Technology.

And the visitors, who would like to see us from above, go up - in a helicopter!

Open day
9 September 2009
13:00 to 22:00 hours
Test Site 'Technical Safety'
An der Düne 44
15837 Baruth/Mark, Horstwalde
BAM Test Site Technical Safety was awarded the title 'Selected place in the Land of Ideas 2009' by the Germany - The Land of Ideas Initiative and Deutsche Bank. On the 9th of September 2009 BAM will open the test site to visitors on the occasion of the presentation of the award!

BAM has a lot to show: For example the largest Drop test facility in the world. A 10,000-kg container for light and medium radioactive wastes will be dropped from a height of 5 metres. This Drop test is part of the prototype test for the final storage facility Konrad.

Our programme will be multifaceted and exciting:

- a car accident including a fire scenario will be simulated

- the fire-accelerating effect of pure oxygen will be shown using a model doll and

- the ignition and transformation of coal dust into a fire ball will be demonstrated.

And much more. Our partners' programme is equally spectacular:

- Linde Gas Deutschland will show 'HydroGen4' with hydrogen propulsion (the European version of Chevrolet Equinox Fuel Cell) and the mobile petrol station 'trailH2-Gas'.

- BAM's test site from below and above: the Promotion Association of Test Traffic Facility Horstwalde organises Offroad tours for visitors. And for those who always wanted to fly in a helicopter, inexpensive Helicopter flights will be offered.

- Work of art from sound and light: fireworks composed by pyro artist Hans-Georg Kehse will close this special day.

Im Focus: Towards data storage at the single molecule level

The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.

Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...

Im Focus: Successful Mechanical Testing of Nanowires

With innovative experiments, researchers at the Helmholtz-Zentrums Geesthacht and the Technical University Hamburg unravel why tiny metallic structures are extremely strong

Light-weight and simultaneously strong – porous metallic nanomaterials promise interesting applications as, for instance, for future aeroplanes with enhanced...

Im Focus: Virtual Reality for Bacteria

An interdisciplinary group of researchers interfaced individual bacteria with a computer to build a hybrid bio-digital circuit - Study published in Nature Communications

Scientists at the Institute of Science and Technology Austria (IST Austria) have managed to control the behavior of individual bacteria by connecting them to a...

Im Focus: A space-time sensor for light-matter interactions

Physicists in the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (run jointly by LMU Munich and the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics) have developed an attosecond electron microscope that allows them to visualize the dispersion of light in time and space, and observe the motions of electrons in atoms.

The most basic of all physical interactions in nature is that between light and matter. This interaction takes place in attosecond times (i.e. billionths of a...

Im Focus: A transistor of graphene nanoribbons

Transistors based on carbon nanostructures: what sounds like a futuristic dream could be reality in just a few years' time. An international research team working with Empa has now succeeded in producing nanotransistors from graphene ribbons that are only a few atoms wide, as reported in the current issue of the trade journal "Nature Communications."

Graphene ribbons that are only a few atoms wide, so-called graphene nanoribbons, have special electrical properties that make them promising candidates for the...
