Ares Research Technology, a new start-up company which will design and assemble scientific equipment that works at ultra-high vacuum, was launched today at CCLRC Daresbury Laboratory. The company will supply advanced instruments for use on X-ray sources in laboratories and at synchrotron light sources around the world.
Company founder Dr Dave Teehan said, “There’s a rapidly expanding global market for vacuum instruments, which already play a key role in research into the development of better computer memories and more environmentally-friendly chemical processes for industry, and which in future will be the key to helping companies make the most of opportunities in nanotechnology. The instruments that Ares Research Technology is supplying will allow companies and university research groups to carry out cutting-edge experiments on these vital new materials at their home laboratories and at synchrotron light sources.”
The original idea behind the new company came while Dave Teehan was working at CCLRC Daresbury Laboratory’s Synchrotron Radiation Source. “I developed an idea for a new piece of ultra-high vacuum equipment which was later patented”, he said. “From there I worked with CLIK, CCLRC’s innovation and knowledge transfer unit, who encouraged me to develop the new company and they and the NWDA have given me a tremendous amount of support. I couldn’t have done it without them.”

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
