EU Research Infrastructures
Materials Science and Nanotechnology - The Big Picture

The study of materials science starts small - in the nanometre scales where details are magnified 1,000 million times. To understand the ultra-small structures requires a large-scale operation encompassing extensive facilities and equipment - Research Infrastructures - to support the work of materials scientists.

On 3rd March 2005, the first of a series of press briefings on European Research Infrastructures will be held at one of the world’s most prestigious research centres, the CCLRC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory near Oxford in England.

This first press briefing focuses on exploring new developments in materials science and nanotechnologies and analysing the impact of the research projects carried out in the EU.

The programme features presentations by senior scientists and policy makers such as Janez Potocnik, EU Commissioner for Science and Research and John Wood, Chief Executive of CCLRC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, as well as extensive on-site visits.

Research-TV will carry exclusive coverage of the event from Friday 4th March 2005.

Im Focus: Unraveling the nature of 'whistlers' from space in the lab

A new study sheds light on how ultralow frequency radio waves and plasmas interact

Scientists at the University of California, Los Angeles present new research on a curious cosmic phenomenon known as "whistlers" -- very low frequency packets...

Im Focus: New interactive machine learning tool makes car designs more aerodynamic

Scientists develop first tool to use machine learning methods to compute flow around interactively designable 3D objects. Tool will be presented at this year’s prestigious SIGGRAPH conference.

When engineers or designers want to test the aerodynamic properties of the newly designed shape of a car, airplane, or other object, they would normally model...

Im Focus: Robots as 'pump attendants': TU Graz develops robot-controlled rapid charging system for e-vehicles

Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.

Global demand for electric vehicles is forecast to rise sharply: by 2025, the number of new vehicle registrations is expected to reach 25 million per year....

Im Focus: The “TRiC” to folding actin

Proteins must be folded correctly to fulfill their molecular functions in cells. Molecular assistants called chaperones help proteins exploit their inbuilt folding potential and reach the correct three-dimensional structure. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) have demonstrated that actin, the most abundant protein in higher developed cells, does not have the inbuilt potential to fold and instead requires special assistance to fold into its active state. The chaperone TRiC uses a previously undescribed mechanism to perform actin folding. The study was recently published in the journal Cell.

Actin is the most abundant protein in highly developed cells and has diverse functions in processes like cell stabilization, cell division and muscle...

Im Focus: Lining up surprising behaviors of superconductor with one of the world's strongest magnets

Scientists have discovered that the electrical resistance of a copper-oxide compound depends on the magnetic field in a very unusual way -- a finding that could help direct the search for materials that can perfectly conduct electricity at room temperatur

What happens when really powerful magnets--capable of producing magnetic fields nearly two million times stronger than Earth's--are applied to materials that...
