With more than 3,150 abstract submissions, the TMS 2009 Annual Meeting is shaping up to be the largest in the history of The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS). TMS 2009, the 138th installment in this yearly conference series, is scheduled for February 15-19 in San Francisco, California. The number of abstracts submitted for this conference exceeds the previous record by 15%.
The conference theme, "Linking Science and Technology for Global Solutions," describes the mix of fundamental research and industrial application of materials technologies presented at this conference. More than 50 symposia are planned in a number of topical areas, so that TMS 2009 offers something for everyone working in the field of materials science and engineering.
A key focus of this year's conference will be materials and society, a series of symposia that explore the intersection between technology and improvements in quality of life. Topics include replacing hazardous lead in soldering for the electronics industry, reducing energy use and environmental impact for metal-producing industries, and examining recycling and sustainability for the electronic and solar industries.
In addition, the conference will have strong programming in aluminum and magnesium technologies; extraction, processing, structure, and properties; and emerging technology areas such as nanomaterials and biomaterials.

TMS is the professional organization encompassing the entire range of materials science and engineering, from minerals processing and primary metals production to basic research and the advanced applications of materials. Included among its 9,500 professional and student members are metallurgical and materials engineers, scientists, researchers, educators, and administrators from six continents.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
