The Novosibirsk researchers have developed a device capable of producing mist with support from the Russian Foundation for Basic Research and the Foundation for Assistance to Small Innovative Enterprises (FASIE). The precise name of the device is “field device for measuring liquid and gas velocities”. It helps to perform prompt, precise and, most importantly, simultaneous measuring of the velocity at any point of the fluid and gas flow.
“Field device for measuring liquid and gas velocity” is the name of the device developed and produced by the researchers of Institute of Thermal Physics, Siberian Branch, Russian Academy of Sciences (Novosibirsk) with support from the Russian Foundation for Basic Research and the Foundation for Assistance to Small Innovative Enterprises (FASIE). The device helps to track in full detail the life of the flow and to learn, for example, what the velocity is at each point, how and where turbulences appear. In other words, it is possible not only to “shoot an animated film” about the flow of liquid or gas, but also to perform mathematical treatment of each “shot”.
The device operations are based on the principle known since the times of Prandtl and other classical hydrodynamics scholars. This is the so-called stroboscopical visualization of flows. In other words, small particles – tracers – are placed in the flow transparent for employed irradiation. The tracers do not influence the stream, they drift together with the flow, but the tracers are not transparent for irradiation.

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".
Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
