The present invention uses a Peltier cooling instead of the usual nitrogen cooling and therefore shows an improved separation device for impurities, especially gaseous impurities, and, com-pared to the state of art, an improved pump device.
Analytical cell-based assays used in diverse applications such as the risk assessment of chemicals and the investigation of stem cell propagation stages, currently employ adherent cell lines. This cell type comes with serious drawbacks. Most importantly, extensive measures are needed for propagation purposes. Intriguingly, scientists at RWTH Aachen University have invented a method of stably growing any analytical (reporter) cell line in suspension. This enables high cell density growth and bulk applications towards tissue engineering, as well as toxicity testing. Furthermore, the method profoundly enhances high-throughput screening efficiency.
The investment for the condenser in ORC power plant is high. In order to reduce costs or to increase the overall efficiency an efficient condensation concept is desired or necessary. The invention can be realized with any commercial heat exchanger and is based on an optimized integration of the condenser.
Increase the flexibility of your compressed air system. The presented invention allows to shift the compressor load and to secure your compressed air supply.
The in the invention described technology allows the parallel detection of several analytes in a liquid test sample with the help of functionalized magnetic particles. In comparison to conventional optical read-out technologies this technology offers a high robustness, low material costs and the possibility of in-vivo measurements while obtaining an equivalent sensitivity.
PD-HyVec has the task to integrate a small combustion engine efficiently into the drive train and to produce a real single wheel drive, at least for the front wheels. The PD-HyVec offers a cost-effective topology for the realization of a hybrid vehicle. Due to the continuous operation of the combustion engine in the optimum working point, PD-HyVec has a high efficiency. The concept allows the drive of only one axle, but also a real all-wheel drive, whereby all four wheels can be individually controlled. An implementation with more than two axes is also conceivable.

Strategy to systematically quantify protein complex formation of cancer relevant, full length, and mutated RAS:RAF in vivo. The presented extendable reporter system facilitates the identification of lead molecules which reduce/prevent either directly or allosterically the formation of carcinogenic H-,K-,N-RAS : A-,B-,C-RAF complexes in vivo.
A strategy to quantify activity-conformations of mutated and cancer relevant RAF kinases in vivo. The full-length kinase is the basis for an extendable cell-based reporter platform which enables noninvasive recordings of open (active) and closed (inactive) RAF conformations following dose- and time-dependent exposure with approved drugs or promising lead molecules.
In today's passenger cars, a large number of sensors are installed which monitor the vehicle condition. For example, since 01.11.2014, all new cars have to be fitted with tire pressure sensors according to the EU regulation. The monitoring of the springs is another very important measuring parameter. This sensor electronics weighs about 40 g and is attached to the wheel housing. The so-called VNA wheel sensor can be used for the following contactless measurements: tire pressure, tire moisture, wheel speed, spring depth, suspension speed, steering angle and foreign body detection.
The VNA wheel sensor consists of a permissible transmitter for a broadband microwave signal (in the microwave range), a vector network analyzer (VNA) and an evaluation unit.
A German and an international patent application were filed, international applications are still possible.

The Open FET sensor is a field-effect-based sensor in which the gate electrode is connected only to the signal to be measured and not as usual to other electronic components. It offers the possibility to measure small voltages at extremely high impedance. It is robust and versatile. For example, it can be used in scanning force and scanning tunneling microscopy or as an electrometer. Due to the simple construction, which does not require any further electronic circuitry, it is inexpensive and simple to manufacture. A German patent application was filed, international applications are still possible.

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...

The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.
Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
