Geruchsprüfungen an Innenraummaterialien, wie Bauprodukten und Konsumgütern, sind ein nützliches Werkzeug um unangenehmen Gerüchen (»off-odor«) auf die Spur zu kommen. In Kombination mit Emissionskammermessungen können unter definierten klimatischen Bedingungen qualitative und quantitative Kriterien zur Beurteilung von Geruchsstoffemissionen herangezogen werden. Das kostenfreie Webinar des Fraunhofer-Instituts für Holzforschung WKI am 24.2.2015 beschäftigt sich ab 15 Uhr mit dem Thema »Sensorische Prüfungen«.
Eine quantitative Untersuchung von Gerüchen kann mit der Methode der empfunden Intensität (»perceived intensity«) gemäß ISO 16000 Teil 28 oder mit der...17.02.2015 | Read more

At the Hannover Messe 2018, the Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und-prüfung (BAM) will show how, in the future, astronauts could produce their own tools or spare parts in zero gravity using 3D printing. This will reduce, weight and transport costs for space missions. Visitors can experience the innovative additive manufacturing process live at the fair.
Powder-based additive manufacturing in zero gravity is the name of the project in which a component is produced by applying metallic powder layers and then...
Physicists at the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics, which is jointly run by Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, have developed a high-power laser system that generates ultrashort pulses of light covering a large share of the mid-infrared spectrum. The researchers envisage a wide range of applications for the technology – in the early diagnosis of cancer, for instance.
Molecules are the building blocks of life. Like all other organisms, we are made of them. They control our biorhythm, and they can also reflect our state of...
University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.
Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.
Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.
Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) together with colleagues from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and the University of Virginia...
