The Joint Technology Initiative (JTI) "Clean Sky" is the name of the hitherto largest EU research programme for the advancement of sustainability and competitiveness in European aviation.
With a budget of 1.6 billion euros, the project is one of the largest combined research programmes in Europe. In six research areas technologies will be developed, with the technological target of realizing an integrated technology demonstrator (ITD). At the Farnborough International Air Show 2008, from 14 to 20 of July in Farnborough, Great Britain, Fraunhofer researchers will inform the public about the project (Hall H4, Booth C7).
A European research consortium of 86 industrial and research partners from 16 nations has set itself the target in the Joint Technology Initiative (JTI) "Clean Sky" to reduce the pollution caused by growing air traffic to a minimum or to keep it within acceptable limits. The research and development work over the next seven years will contribute to reducing the CO2 emissions by 50 percent, the NOx emissions by 80 percent and to halve the noise pollution.
Furthermore, the researchers will develop environmentally-friendly methods, processes, procedures and materials for the design, manufacturing, operation and recycling of aircraft. Alongside leading aviation companies, such as Airbus, Alenia, Dassault Aviation, EADS-CASA, Eurocopter, Liebherr-Aerospace, Safran, Agusta Westland, Thales, Saab AB and Rolls Royce, the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft has a seat on the Governing Board of the programme.Contact

A new manufacturing technique uses a process similar to newspaper printing to form smoother and more flexible metals for making ultrafast electronic devices.
The low-cost process, developed by Purdue University researchers, combines tools already used in industry for manufacturing metals on a large scale, but uses...
For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.
To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...
For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.
Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...
Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.
A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...
Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.
"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
