International Conference "How Efficient is Electro mobility?"

08.05.2015

Das Hanse-Wissenschaftskolleg (HWK), die Universität Oldenburg und NEXT ENERGY, EWE-Forschungszentrum für Energietechnologie e.V. veranstalten gemeinsam eine Konferenz vom 04. bis 05. Juni 2015, bei der es um die Frage nach der tatsächlichen Effizienz von Elektromobilität geht.

Erwartet werden internationale Forscher aus den unterschiedlichsten Bereichen von Wissenschaft und Industrie. Sie werden sich mit dem Einsatz von kritischen Materialien und deren Rückgewinnung auseinandersetzen.

An der Organisation beteiligt sind auch Wissenschaftler von der Shanghai Jiao Tong University in China und der University of Waterloo (Kanada).

Im Folgenden die englische Ankündigung der Tagung:

What do we really know about the efficiency of electro mobility? Automobiles for example are becoming lighter, smarter, safer and steadily more electric. Each of these trends will demand new types and new combinations of materials – materials and systems that will be increasingly complex.

The Hanse-Wissenschaftskolleg (Institute for Advanced Study, HWK) in Delmenhorst together with the Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg, the EWE Research Centre NEXT ENERGY, and international partners in the P.R. China and Canada organizes an international conference “How Efficient is Electro Mobility”. The conference will be held on June 4 and 5 at the HWK; preceding the conference an excursion to two industrial sites in Bremen will take place (June 3).

This conference explores the future of electro mobility and searches for answers to the “efficiency question”. The future challenges for developers and manufacturers of vehicles may no longer be issues of energy efficiency and fuels.

Instead, new questions will arise regarding the use of new, sometimes scarce and environmentally problematic materials and their role in new drive trains as well as questions about systems integration, especially with the increasing importance of renewable energy and decentralized energy systems. These questions will result in new challenges for the life cycle management of vehicles, materials and systems.

The conference will bring together international researchers from academia and industry in different domains. They shall discuss across disciplinary borders crucial questions related to the energy and material shift in vehicles caused by new drive trains and power sources, such as batteries and fuel cells.

The envisioned integration of vehicles and their batteries into the electricity system further contributes to the mentioned shift as use phases overlap and are becoming indistinct.

Im Focus: First evidence on the source of extragalactic particles

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...

Im Focus: Magnetic vortices: Two independent magnetic skyrmion phases discovered in a single material

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...

Im Focus: Breaking the bond: To take part or not?

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...

Im Focus: New 2D Spectroscopy Methods

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....

Im Focus: Chemical reactions in the light of ultrashort X-ray pulses from free-electron lasers

Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.

Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
