Visitors to the event can familiarize themselves with the latest research knowledge on real equipment for chemical process and biosystems technology in combination with e-learning modules at terminals and take their acquired knowledge home with them. The large fair stand has 180 m² of space combining learning, entertainment and relaxation (edutainment)
FIZ CHEMIE Berlin and the University of Applied Sciences Wildau will show "New Paths through the Training Jungle" at the chemical trade fair ACHEMA 2009 May 11th-15th in Frankfurt am Main. Stand F13-G14 in Hall 4.2 has 180 m² of exhibition space in which the partners will demonstrate how imparting knowledge of chemical application R&D can be combined with entertainment, a technique known as "edutainment". Interactive digital media (pictures, sound, video and animations) are combined with elements of entertainment to result in learning and fun for vocational training.
The University of Applied Sciences Wildau will present the latest research and development work with real equipment for chemical process and biosystems technology operating at the exhibition stand. Visitors to the event can use terminals to monitor what happens in an injection molding machine as it produces chips for shopping carts, or measure alcohol with a breathalyzer, and observe the processes in a biofuel cell or a fermenter. In parallel they can learn at terminals which chemical and technical processes are behind it all. The multimedia editorial service of FIZ CHEMIE Berlin has prepared the processes for representation in multimedia learning modules on the terminals. They explain the processes and invite a deeper examination of the areas of research with supplemental background information provided. For example, a quiz at the terminal provides entertainment and motivation as it shows interested persons their own level of knowledge and provides answers to fill in the gaps.
The learning modules are embedded in the learning encyclopedia ChemgaPedia, which FIZ CHEMIE Berlin has provided on the Internet for schools as well as institutes for research and higher education. This enables visitors to the trade fair to take home acquired knowledge of lasting interest and value. With 16,000 content pages and more than 10,000 users each day in research, science, education and industry, ChemgaPedia is the largest and most utilized teaching platform on the Internet in the German language. The platform offers scientific and technical training material for chemistry and related disciplines.For further information, please contact:

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...
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...
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,...
Broadband rotational spectroscopy unravels structural reshaping of isolated molecules in the gas phase to accommodate water

The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.
Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
