“Recalling products because of design flaws in the packaging can be prevented.” Packaging experts badly needed in industry
Delft researcher Roland ten Klooster will defend his thesis on Monday the 30th of September at TU Delft. He has developed systematic plan for the development of packaging for products. Ten Klooster: “There are number of aspects play a part in the development of packaging, my model helps the packaging designer to see, and use these aspects.” In his thesis, Ten Klooster stresses the need for packaging experts in industry. The number of recalls caused by packaging mistakes show that the subject cannot be taken lightly.
Every year there are number of product recalls caused by a wrong method of packaging or by packaging that does not properly adhere to safety and health codes for consumer products. Ten Klooster: “A possible cause for this could be the fact that everybody is trying to use the most environmentally friendly material, while this material might not be suitable for the packaging of product, thus compromising the safety of the packaging.”

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...
