The Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung (Düsseldorf, Germany) is organizing a workshop on tribology and wear on June 25th, 2014.
The list of confirmed external speakers includes:
• Prof. Roland Bennewitz (Saarbrücken)
• Dr. Martin Dienwiebel (Karlsruhe)
• Prof. Alfons Fischer (Duisburg)
• Dr. Bo Persson (Jülich)
• Dr. Ruth Schwaiger (Karlsruhe)
The program also includes a lab session where new approaches used in tribology research and wear characterization will be demonstrated.
Information and Registration at: http://wear.mpie.de/
This is a free workshop which is sponsored by MPIE.
The workshop is part of a series of topical one-day workshops named ‘Frontiers in Materials Science & Engineering’ at the institute.
The intention is to bring together leading experts from academia and industry in a workshop format to enable in-depth discussions of fundamental and applied research regarding both current and preliminary research in this area.

Waveguides are widely used for filtering, confining, guiding, coupling or splitting beams of visible light. However, creating waveguides that could do the same for X-rays has posed tremendous challenges in fabrication, so they are still only in an early stage of development.
In the latest issue of Acta Crystallographica Section A: Foundations and Advances , Sarah Hoffmann-Urlaub and Tim Salditt report the fabrication and testing of...
Electrochemists at TU Graz have managed to use monocrystalline semiconductor silicon as an active storage electrode in lithium batteries. This enables an integrated power supply to be made for microchips with a rechargeable battery.
Small electrical gadgets, such as mobile phones, tablets or notebooks, are indispensable accompaniments of everyday life. Integrated circuits in the interiors...

A nanocrystalline material that rapidly makes white light out of blue light has been developed by KAUST researchers.
Malignant cancer cells not only proliferate faster than most body cells. They are also more dependent on the most important cellular garbage disposal unit, the proteasome, which degrades defective proteins. Therapies for some types of cancer exploit this dependence: Patients are treated with inhibitors, which block the proteasome. The ensuing pile-up of junk overwhelms the cancer cell, ultimately killing it. Scientists have now succeeded in determining the human proteasome’s 3D structure in unprecedented detail and have deciphered the mechanism by which inhibitors block the proteasome. Their results will pave the way to develop more effective proteasome inhibitors for cancer therapy.
In order to understand how cellular machines such as the proteasome work, it is essential to determine their three-dimensional structure in detail. With its...
