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.

Researchers at the University of Bayreuth have discovered an unusual material: When cooled down to two degrees Celsius, its crystal structure and electronic properties change abruptly and significantly. In this new state, the distances between iron atoms can be tailored with the help of light beams. This opens up intriguing possibilities for application in the field of information technology. The scientists have presented their discovery in the journal "Angewandte Chemie - International Edition". The new findings are the result of close cooperation with partnering facilities in Augsburg, Dresden, Hamburg, and Moscow.
The material is an unusual form of iron oxide with the formula Fe₅O₆. The researchers produced it at a pressure of 15 gigapascals in a high-pressure laboratory...
Study by Mainz physicists indicates that the next generation of neutrino experiments may well find the answer to one of the most pressing issues in neutrino physics
Among the most exciting challenges in modern physics is the identification of the neutrino mass ordering. Physicists from the Cluster of Excellence PRISMA+ at...
Fraunhofer researchers are investigating the potential of microimplants to stimulate nerve cells and treat chronic conditions like asthma, diabetes, or Parkinson’s disease. Find out what makes this form of treatment so appealing and which challenges the researchers still have to master.
A study by the Robert Koch Institute has found that one in four women will suffer from weak bladders at some point in their lives. Treatments of this condition...
The operational speed of semiconductors in various electronic and optoelectronic devices is limited to several gigahertz (a billion oscillations per second). This constrains the upper limit of the operational speed of computing. Now researchers from the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter in Hamburg, Germany, and the Indian Institute of Technology in Bombay have explained how these processes can be sped up through the use of light waves and defected solid materials.
Light waves perform several hundred trillion oscillations per second. Hence, it is natural to envision employing light oscillations to drive the electronic...
Most natural and artificial surfaces are rough: metals and even glasses that appear smooth to the naked eye can look like jagged mountain ranges under the microscope. There is currently no uniform theory about the origin of this roughness despite it being observed on all scales, from the atomic to the tectonic. Scientists suspect that the rough surface is formed by irreversible plastic deformation that occurs in many processes of mechanical machining of components such as milling.
Prof. Dr. Lars Pastewka from the Simulation group at the Department of Microsystems Engineering at the University of Freiburg and his team have simulated such...
