- 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.

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":

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.
In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...
'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.
Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
