Technology Developments for Technical Textiles and Composites for Practical Applications

13th Chemnitz Textile Technology Conference on 14 and 15 March 2012

“Fibre-reinforced polymer composites in automobile manufacturing – challenges for the future” is the title of the opening lecture to be given by Dr. Olaf Täger from the Volkswagen Group’s Research Department at the 13th Chemnitz Textile Technology Conference (CTT).

The international conference dedicated to the issue of “Value Creation Opportunities with Textile Technology” will take place at Chemnitz University of Technology on 14 and 15 March 2012.

Other lecturers at the plenary sessions will include Prof. Dr. Chokri Cherif from Dresden University of Technology and Prof. Lothar Kroll from Chemnitz University of Technology, who will speak on “Developing manufacturing technologies suitable for use in large-scale production environments for complex fibre-reinforced polymer composite components”; they will illustrate the need for action in order to fully exploit the lightweight design potential of textiles and fibre-reinforced polymer composites.

More than 50 speakers in all will present the latest expertise from industrial companies and research institutes. The subject areas are “Resource Efficient Machines and Processes”, “Finishing and Functionalization”, “Process and Structure Simulation”, “Procedures for Process Controls and Tests,” “Semi-Finished Products and Preform Technologies” and “Composites in Lightweight Design”.

The 13th Chemnitz Textile Technology Conference therefore provides a cross-sector platform for presenting results and sharing experiences related to the complementary process stages in various manufacturing chains.

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...

Im Focus: New Products - Highlights of COMPAMED 2016

COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.

In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...

Im Focus: Ultra-thin ferroelectric material for next-generation electronics

'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.

Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
