“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. www.chemtextiles.de

The Institute of Semiconductor Technology and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, both members of the Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology (LENA), at Technische Universität Braunschweig are partners in a new European research project entitled ChipScope, which aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.
To demonstrate the usefulness of this new scientific tool, at the end of the project the developed chip-sized microscope will be used to observe in real-time...
Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.
The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.
Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...
Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.
Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.
