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

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: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

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...

Im Focus: New Products - Highlights of COMPAMED 2016

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...

Im Focus: Ultra-thin ferroelectric material for next-generation electronics

'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...
