Next week (7–12 April), some 14,000 scientists will gather in Vienna for the 2019 General Assembly of the European Geosciences Union (EGU). The press conference programme includes presentations on new results from the ExoMars mission and latest research on plastic pollution, as well as a press conference where scientists will announce the Antarctic location they found to drill for 1.5 million-year old ice. Interested journalists can register on-site, free of charge, during the meeting. Those who cannot make it to Vienna can watch press conferences remotely through live-streaming links.
In addition, the EGU meeting will feature a session on science, politics and European (dis)integration with Mario Monti and Ilaria Capua, which will also be...02.04.2019 | Read more
Researchers at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) have been studying how to implement occupational health management in small and medium-sized businesses on a long-term basis and how to give more consideration to employees’ psychological stress. The ‘RegioKMUnet’ project, which is near completion, focused in particular on the benefits of regional networks. The results will be presented on Wednesday 10 April at a conference in Erlangen.
The health of its employees is fundamental to the performance of a company. New developments, in particular regarding digitalisation at the workplace, are...02.04.2019 | Read more

The quality of additively manufactured components depends not only on the manufacturing process, but also on the inline process control. The process control ensures a reliable coating process because it detects deviations from the target geometry immediately. At LASER World of PHOTONICS 2019, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be demonstrating how well bi-directional sensor technology can already be used for Laser Material Deposition (LMD) in combination with commercial optics at booth A2.431.
Fraunhofer ILT has been developing optical sensor technology specifically for production measurement technology for around 10 years. In particular, its »bd-1«...
The well-known representation of chemical elements is just one example of how objects can be arranged and classified
The periodic table of elements that most chemistry books depict is only one special case. This tabular overview of the chemical elements, which goes back to...
Light can be used not only to measure materials’ properties, but also to change them. Especially interesting are those cases in which the function of a material can be modified, such as its ability to conduct electricity or to store information in its magnetic state. A team led by Andrea Cavalleri from the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter in Hamburg used terahertz frequency light pulses to transform a non-ferroelectric material into a ferroelectric one.
Ferroelectricity is a state in which the constituent lattice “looks” in one specific direction, forming a macroscopic electrical polarisation. The ability to...
Researchers at TU Graz calculate the most accurate gravity field determination of the Earth using 1.16 billion satellite measurements. This yields valuable knowledge for climate research.
The Earth’s gravity fluctuates from place to place. Geodesists use this phenomenon to observe geodynamic and climatological processes. Using...
