The characteristics of plastics can be optimised through the application of cellulose-based fibers as reinforcing components.
These fiber-reinforced composites can be used in all situations in which the structural elements are subjected to special requirements. Due to the strong...
At the workshop „Laser Processing of Glass Materials”, which will be held at the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) in November, the main topics to be covered are relevant beam source developments, joining, cutting and functionalization, as well as machine technology. The workshop will be organized by the LZH together with the Bayerisches Laserzentrum gGmbH.
In many areas of manufacturing and processing industries, processing of glass materials using the laser plays an important role. The laser has established...
A workshop will be held at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) in Laurel, Md. on Aug. 1-2, 2013 to maximize the scientific opportunities and data gathered during the upcoming visit to our solar system by Comet ISON.

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.
Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...
The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.
Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.
An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.
Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...
