- Basalt fibers have great future potential in the construction, mechanical engineering and automotive industry
Their solution: a reinforced bar made of basalt fibre, called rebar. The rebar has several advantages over steel: high corrosion resistance, good mechanical properties and the same temperature expansion behaviour as the surrounding concrete. Temperature-related tensions have become rare. The product thus offers great future potential for reinforcing concrete components. But there is more: CG Tec GmbH is devoted to new materials and is the only manufacturer of standard semifinished basalt products such as rods and panels. They believe that the new basalt fiber rod will be a strong competitor for carbon and glass fiber in the mechanical engineering and automotive industry.
Together with CG Tex and 12 other Bavarian exhibitors, the Cluster New Materials and the EU Co-operation Unit of Bayern Innovativ GmbH as leading networking specialists in Bavaria and Europe will enable the joint booth to be a great success in this major technology exhibition again in 2013.
Bavaria is one of the most innovative and dynamic regions in Europe in the field of composite fiber technologies. The German top cluster M A I Carbon in the composite fiber region around Munich, Augsburg and Ingolstadt as well as Upper Franconia concentrate textile competences and are exemplary in this regard. A good enough reason for Bayern Innovativ GmbH and its two networks to showcase Bavarian key enterprises at the Bayern Innovativ joint booth at the leading exhibition for composites, the JEC Composite Show in Paris, again this year.
The Bavarian exhibitors participating in the joint booth cover the entire value chain of composite manufacturing and are representative of Bavarian material competences.
Other highlights of the joint booth:- Textile semifinished products made of carbon and basalt - TK Industries GmbH
The joint booth is made possible by the Enterprise Europe Network which supports cross-border technology transfer in Europe on behalf of the European Commission in cooperation with the Cluster New Materials as the organiser of the joint booth at the JEC since 2007."Technology Dating":

The WHO reports an estimated 429,000 malaria deaths each year. The disease mostly affects tropical and subtropical regions and in particular the African continent. The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC teamed up with the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME and the Institute of Tropical Medicine at the University of Tübingen for a new test method to detect malaria parasites in blood. The idea of the research project “NanoFRET” is to develop a highly sensitive and reliable rapid diagnostic test so that patient treatment can begin as early as possible.
Malaria is caused by parasites transmitted by mosquito bite. The most dangerous form of malaria is malaria tropica. Left untreated, it is fatal in most cases....
The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.
Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...
Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.
That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...
Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.
During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....
The quantum world is fragile; error correction codes are needed to protect the information stored in a quantum object from the deteriorating effects of noise. Quantum physicists in Innsbruck have developed a protocol to pass quantum information between differently encoded building blocks of a future quantum computer, such as processors and memories. Scientists may use this protocol in the future to build a data bus for quantum computers. The researchers have published their work in the journal Nature Communications.
Future quantum computers will be able to solve problems where conventional computers fail today. We are still far away from any large-scale implementation,...
