Clean Sky - Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft creates "green" technologies for aviation

14.04.2008
The Joint Technology Initiative (JTI) "Clean Sky" is the name of the hitherto largest EU research programme for the advancement of sustainability and competitiveness in European aviation.

With a budget of 1.6 billion euros, the project is one of the largest combined research programmes in Europe. In six research areas technologies will be developed, with the technological target of realizing an integrated technology demonstrator (ITD).

At the Aerospace Testing Expo 2008, from 15 to 17 of April in Munich, Fraunhofer researchers will inform the public for the first time about the project (Hall A1, Booth D185).

A European research consortium of 86 industrial and research partners from 16 nations has set itself the target in the Joint Technology Initiative (JTI) "Clean Sky" to reduce the pollution caused by growing air traffic to a minimum or to keep it within acceptable limits. The research and development work over the next seven years will contribute to reducing the CO2 emissions by 50 percent, the NOx emissions by 80 percent and to halve the noise pollution.

Furthermore, the researchers will develop environmentally-friendly methods, processes, procedures and materials for the design, manufacturing, operation and recycling of aircraft. Alongside leading aviation companies, such as Airbus, Alenia, Dassault Aviation, EADS-CASA, Eurocopter, Liebherr-Aerospace, Safran, Agusta Westland, Thales, Saab AB and Rolls Royce, the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft has a seat on the Governing Board of the programme.

Im Focus: Manipulating Electron Spins Without Loss of Information

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.

For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...

Im Focus: The proton precisely weighted

What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.

To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
