A Christmas theme park in Scandinavia opens its doors to many visitors every year during Christmas season. Featured attractions include an ice gallery, where you can admire various animals carved out of ice. During the rest of the year, the premises are closed.
Due to the damp and wet rooms, mold spores and unpleasant odors are very often formed. Special UV lamps from Heraeus Noblelight can help to combat this problem.
The physical method of UV radiation is an economical and environmentally friendly alternative to chemical processes. By using special Heraeus UV lamps, ozone is generated from the atmospheric oxygen of the ambient air. For this purpose, the emitted radiation of wavelength 185 nm is used. The radiation at the longer wavelength of 254nm photolyzes the ozone into excited oxygen, which oxidizes the long chain molecules. That way, mold can be killed and unpleasant mold odors are broken down.
The ultraviolet radiation covers the wavelength range from 100 to 380 nm. The disinfection with UV low- pressure lamps uses the wavelength in the UVC range of 254 nm, the ozone production the wavelength 185 nm.

Styrofoam or copper - both materials have very different properties with regard to their ability to conduct heat. Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) in Mainz and the University of Bayreuth have now jointly developed and characterized a novel, extremely thin and transparent material that has different thermal conduction properties depending on the direction. While it can conduct heat extremely well in one direction, it shows good thermal insulation in the other direction.
Thermal insulation and thermal conduction play a crucial role in our everyday lives - from computer processors, where it is important to dissipate heat as...
In order to advance the transfer of research developments from the field of quantum sensor technology into industrial applications, an application laboratory is being established at Fraunhofer IAF. This will enable interested companies and especially regional SMEs and start-ups to evaluate the innovation potential of quantum sensors for their specific requirements. Both the state of Baden-Württemberg and the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft are supporting the four-year project with one million euros each.
The application laboratory is being set up as part of the Fraunhofer lighthouse project »QMag«, short for quantum magnetometry. In this project, researchers...

Researchers from the University Hospital Zurich, ETH Zurich, Wyss Zurich and the University of Zurich have developed a machine that repairs injured human livers and keep them alive outside the body for one week. This breakthrough may increase the number of available organs for transplantation saving many lives of patients with severe liver diseases or cancer.
Until now, livers could be stored safely outside the body for only a few hours. With the novel perfusion technology, livers - and even injured livers - can now...
A balloon-borne scientific instrument designed to study the origin of cosmic rays is taking its second turn high above the continent of Antarctica three and a half weeks after its launch.
SuperTIGER (Super Trans-Iron Galactic Element Recorder) is designed to measure the rare, heavy elements in cosmic rays that hold clues about their origins...
