9th International Symposium
Advanced Battery Power – Kraftwerk Batterie
Aachen, 29-30 March 2017
Life in our modern world without batteries is almost unthinkable, and electricity will in future come more often from batteries than from a socket.
Being contactable wherever you are means always having batteries in your communication devices. Batteries are employed millions of times a day to start combustion engines, as well as being used for emergency power supplies.
However, batteries will soon not just help us get started, they will also supply the motive power for our cars. Future electric vehicles will have ranges of 400 km and more. This will be made possible by the rapidly falling price of batteries and the emerging mass market.
These days, batteries are an integral technological component in home solar energy installations and in the electricity grid generally, and their importance is growing dramatically.
Researchers, developers and users from industry, science and research will be discussing the latest trends, studies and findings from battery research from 29-30 March 2017 in Aachen at the English-language Advanced Battery Power Conference.
The programme is now online (www.battery-power.eu). Over 550 trade visitors are expected. Internationally renowned experts such as Jeff Dahn, FRSC from Dalhousie University NSERC/Tesla Canada Industrial Research and Dr. Michael Thackeray from the Argonne National Laboratory have already been booked as keynote speakers.
The Advanced Battery Power Symposium on the previous day will offer related introductory and basic seminars. Battery Day NRW will be sponsored by Svenja Schulze, Minister of Innovation, Science and Research of the State of Nordrhein-Westfalen.
For three days in March 2017, the Eurogress convention centre in Aachen will be the global centre of international battery research and applications.
The exhibition is already almost fully booked.

World first experiments on sensor that may revolutionise everything from medical devices to unmanned vehicles
The new sensor - capable of detecting vibrations of living cells - may revolutionise everything from medical devices to unmanned vehicles.
Dead and alive at the same time? Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics have implemented Erwin Schrödinger’s paradoxical gedanken experiment employing an entangled atom-light state.
In 1935 Erwin Schrödinger formulated a thought experiment designed to capture the paradoxical nature of quantum physics. The crucial element of this gedanken...
Cellulose obtained from wood has amazing material properties. Empa researchers are now equipping the biodegradable material with additional functionalities to produce implants for cartilage diseases using 3D printing.
It all starts with an ear. Empa researcher Michael Hausmann removes the object shaped like a human ear from the 3D printer and explains:
The phenomenon of so-called superlubricity is known, but so far the explanation at the atomic level has been missing: for example, how does extremely low friction occur in bearings? Researchers from the Fraunhofer Institutes IWM and IWS jointly deciphered a universal mechanism of superlubricity for certain diamond-like carbon layers in combination with organic lubricants. Based on this knowledge, it is now possible to formulate design rules for supra lubricating layer-lubricant combinations. The results are presented in an article in Nature Communications, volume 10.
One of the most important prerequisites for sustainable and environmentally friendly mobility is minimizing friction. Research and industry have been dedicated...
