Modern life thrives on the availability of electrical energy. Countless applications spanning from medical to industrial and consumer products have been made possible only by modern battery technology.
Future electric vehicles will have ranges of 450 km and more. Nowadays, batteries are an integral technological component in home solar energy installations and in the electricity grid generally, and their importance is growing dramatically.
Even both, limited energy density and high costs, sectors such as mobility, communications, renewable energy, count on the development of rising storage performances with regard to price, mass and energy.
Reason enough for researchers, application engineers, developers to join the 11th International meeting,“Advanced Battery Power – Kraftwerk Batterie”held in Aachen, Germany, from April 3rd-4th, 2019, gathering academia, industry and the public sector. Over 600 visitors are expected. The latest version of the program is now on-line (www.battery-power.eu).
With Dr. Matthias Ullrich, Volkswagen Aktiengesellschaft,Prof. Rachid Yazami, Nanyang Technological University,Dr. Hartung Wilstermann, Webasto E-Solutions & Services Boards, Prof. Dr. Petr Novàk, Paul Scherrer Institut, Prof. Dr. Kristina Edström, Uppsala University and Ted Miller (requested), Ford Motor Company
the conference has already attracted international and renowned scientists and practitioners.
The “Battery Day NRW” preceding the main symposium on April 2nd will enable participants to keep abreast with various topics around the basic science and technology by means of a thoroughly adapted series of introductory seminars.
The “Battery Day NRW” is supported by the Department of Economy, Innovation, Digitalization and Energy of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia and held under the patronage of Prof. Dr. Andreas Pinkwart.
From April 2rd – 4rd, 2019, Aachen will again be the platform to update on, discuss, and experience hands-on the latest developments in battery technology, research, development and examples of applications.
The conference language will be English and German (Battery Day NRW).Further details can be found under www.battery-power.eu. The exhibition is already fully booked.

Solar cells based on perovskite compounds could soon make electricity generation from sunlight even more efficient and cheaper. The laboratory efficiency of these perovskite solar cells already exceeds that of the well-known silicon solar cells. An international team led by Stefan Weber from the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) in Mainz has found microscopic structures in perovskite crystals that can guide the charge transport in the solar cell. Clever alignment of these "electron highways" could make perovskite solar cells even more powerful.
Solar cells convert sunlight into electricity. During this process, the electrons of the material inside the cell absorb the energy of the light....
Empa researchers have succeeded in applying aerogels to microelectronics: Aerogels based on cellulose nanofibers can effectively shield electromagnetic radiation over a wide frequency range – and they are unrivalled in terms of weight.
Electric motors and electronic devices generate electromagnetic fields that sometimes have to be shielded in order not to affect neighboring electronic...

With an X-ray experiment at the European Synchrotron ESRF in Grenoble (France), Empa researchers were able to demonstrate how well their real-time acoustic monitoring of laser weld seams works. With almost 90 percent reliability, they detected the formation of unwanted pores that impair the quality of weld seams. Thanks to a special evaluation method based on artificial intelligence (AI), the detection process is completed in just 70 milliseconds.
Laser welding is a process suitable for joining metals and thermoplastics. It has become particularly well established in highly automated production, for...
