The newly revamped TES information portal: how to safely handle dangerous goods

23.02.2011
Hazardous goods travel on Germany’s roads, railways and waterways every day – more than 350 million tons annually.

In order to increase the safety of these transports, BAM (Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing) provides a lot of information about this topic online.

TES (Technical Safety) information is directed at all parties involved – manufacturers, carriers and end users of dangerous goods – as well as the general public. The portal at www.tes.bam.de has now been completely revamped.

There are four major areas of emphasis dedicated to the different types of containment systems: among them are dangerous goods packagings, containers for radioactive substances, pressure vessels and pressure equipment, tanks and containers, as well as the evaluation of their materials.

On TES, manufacturers of dangerous goods packagings can get information on how to obtain certifications for their products. End users can get assistance in their search for suitable packaging. In addition, there are references to regulations, standards and international rules. The service area provides outlines on current developments, events and training centres. A link portal points to further information sources on the internet.

New summary pages for each topic facilitate quick preliminary research and describe which information is available. In the future, the information portal will also include practical manuals for manufacturers, authorities and testing centres.

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...

Im Focus: Hydrogen Bonds Directly Detected for the First Time

For the first time, scientists have succeeded in studying the strength of hydrogen bonds in a single molecule using an atomic force microscope. Researchers from the University of Basel’s Swiss Nanoscience Institute network have reported the results in the journal Science Advances.

Hydrogen is the most common element in the universe and is an integral part of almost all organic compounds. Molecules and sections of macromolecules are...
