Relaunch of the Transport Research Knowledge Centre

22.04.2008
New website helps European transport community to find transport research solutions

The Transport Research Knowledge Centre (TRKC) has relaunched its web portal www.transport-research.info – with a dynamic new look, improved navigation and user-friendly structure.

The Transport Research Knowledge Centre features up-to-date information on transport research activities. It enables policy makers, researchers and other stakeholders to access results of EU or nationally financed transport research in the European Research Area (ERA).

Visitors can easily browse and search information about:

• Transport research programmes across the European Research Area;
• Ongoing and completed European and national transport research projects;
• European and national research funding mechanisms;
• Thematic analysis reports;
• Policy brochures;
• Major events in the international transport community.
Users also have quick and easy access to a link library listing transport research government institutions, professional organisations, information relays or fora. Using TRKC’s data collection tool, project coordinators can submit descriptions and results of their own projects.
Enhancements to the website include:

• Improved navigation – the website and the search tools are structured in an intuitive and consistent way, making it easier for visitors to find what they are looking for and know where they are within the web site;

• Improved look and feel – enhanced graphics and new page layouts provide visitors with an improved user experience.

The Transport Research Knowledge Centre will be present at the Transport Research Arena 2008, on April 21-24, in Ljubljana – Slovenia. Participants are welcomed to visit our stand for a personal introduction to the new TRKC website.

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Shape matters when light meets atom

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
