The Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung (Düsseldorf, Germany) is organizing a workshop on tribology and wear on June 25th, 2014.
The list of confirmed external speakers includes:
• Prof. Roland Bennewitz (Saarbrücken)
• Dr. Martin Dienwiebel (Karlsruhe)
• Prof. Alfons Fischer (Duisburg)
• Dr. Bo Persson (Jülich)
• Dr. Ruth Schwaiger (Karlsruhe)
The program also includes a lab session where new approaches used in tribology research and wear characterization will be demonstrated.
Information and Registration at: http://wear.mpie.de/
This is a free workshop which is sponsored by MPIE.
The workshop is part of a series of topical one-day workshops named ‘Frontiers in Materials Science & Engineering’ at the institute.
The intention is to bring together leading experts from academia and industry in a workshop format to enable in-depth discussions of fundamental and applied research regarding both current and preliminary research in this area.

Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.
Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...
Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.
In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...

When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure
Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...
Physicists at ETH Zurich demonstrate how errors that occur during the manipulation of quantum system can be monitored and corrected on the fly
The field of quantum computation has seen tremendous progress in recent years. Bit by bit, quantum devices start to challenge conventional computers, at least...
