Variable glass coatings to stop condensation on windows

Thin-film coatings impart new properties to glass in applications as diverse as window glazing, solar cells and touchscreens. With the Megatron® sputtering system, it is now possible for the first time to vary the materials in these coatings in any way and to produce entirely new coatings with improved surface quality. The researchers will be presenting the Megatron® at the glasstec trade fair in Düsseldorf from October 21 to 24 (Hall 15, Booth A33).

When it’s frosty outside and cozy and warm indoors, a little bit of heat always escapes through the windows. Triple glazing is intended to keep as much of the...

Glasstec 2014: Lead-free glass decor

Whether on baby bottles, beer mugs or perfume bottles, imprints on glass consist mainly of lead oxide. Fraunhofer researchers have developed printing inks for glass that do not contain any toxic elements. At the glasstec tradefair from October 21st to 24th in Düsseldorf, they are going to present the new imprints (Hall 15, Booth A33).

The perfume bottles seem almost like little works of art: made of stained glass, elegantly formed and decorated with imprints. But the decorative graphics and...

Materials inspection effortless

Defects in the final product can quickly lead to malfunction and thus compromise safety massively – a challenge in many industrial areas such as automotive industry, aircraft, or steel construction. Hence, nondestructive inspection methods which allow to check components without destroying it take a key role in the quality assurance.

From 21 to 25 October 2014, engineers of Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken provide two innovative methods on EuroBlech 2014 in Hannover which enable fast and...

Im Focus: NASA Begins Sixth Year of Airborne Antarctic Ice Change Study

NASA is carrying out its sixth consecutive year of Operation IceBridge research flights over Antarctica to study changes in the continent’s ice sheet, glaciers and sea ice. This year’s airborne campaign, which began its first flight Thursday morning, will revisit a section of the Antarctic ice sheet that recently was found to be in irreversible decline.

For the next several weeks, researchers will fly aboard NASA’s DC-8 research aircraft out of Punta Arenas, Chile. This year also marks the return to western...

Im Focus: Milky Way Ransacks Nearby Dwarf Galaxies, Stripping All Traces of Star-Forming Gas

Astronomers using the National Science Foundation’s Green Bank Telescope (GBT) in West Virginia, along with data from other large radio telescopes, have discovered that our nearest galactic neighbors, the dwarf spheroidal galaxies, are devoid of star-forming gas, and that our Milky Way Galaxy is to blame.

These new radio observations, which are the highest sensitivity of their kind ever undertaken, reveal that within a well-defined boundary around our Galaxy,...

Im Focus: Researchers in Berlin and Bath Identify “Naïve-Like” Human Stem Cells

In their search for the earliest possible stage of development of human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) that still have the potential to develop into any types of body cells and tissue, researchers from the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine (MDC) Berlin-Buch, Germany, and the University of Bath, United Kingdom, have apparently been successful. Jichang Wang, Gangcai Xie, and Dr. Zsuzsanna Izsvák (MDC), together with Professor Laurence D. Hurst (University of Bath), report the discovery of a subtype of cells in culture dishes with hESCs and human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) that resemble this very early, pluripotent or naïve state (Nature, doi:10.1038/nature13804)*.

They also discovered the mechanism that turns human ES cells into naïve-like human stem cells. While this has potential implications for medicine and for...

Im Focus: Piezohydraulic Actuator: A Powerful Midget

Researchers at Siemens have developed a small but powerful piezo­hydraulic actuator. Although it is only about nine centimeters long, it can apply a force of more than 150 newtons - equivalent to a weight of 15 kilograms. Such actuators are used to operate valves and flaps, for example, and can also be employed in robots.

The concept combines piezomechanics with hydraulics. A voltage causes tiny deflections in a piezoelectric crystal and an internal hydraulic system combines...
