Better than humans: Laboratory robot for nanoparticle production
In the laboratory, robots can take over important tasks for example in the synthesis of nanoparticles. Karl Geiger from Goldfuß engineering GmbH and Dr. Sofia Dembski from the Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC explain the development and the system in the video.
Most people in the United States have some degree of immune protection against Covid-19, either from vaccination, infection, or a combination of the two. But, just how much protection does any individual person have? MIT researchers have now developed an easy-to-use test that may be able to answer that question.
The Greifswald University Medical Center has been participating in an international multicenter study for two years, in which a special diaphragm stimulation therapy is used to wean patients on artificial respiration. Now, the latest generation of the enhanced AeroPace™ neurostimulation system has been introduced and can be used immediately for suitable ventilation patients in Greifswald.
Scientists and engineers are constantly developing new materials with unique properties that can be used for 3D printing, but figuring out how to print with these materials can be a complex, costly conundrum.
The Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) is working on more durable, particularly well-fitting dental implants as part of a DFG research group. The scientists want to use Additive Manufacturing to produce titanium implants with an innovative lattice structure.
Innovative medical technology can save lives. Outdated approval processes delay rapid market introduction. To shorten the time from development to certification, the KIMEDS joint project aims to develop an AI-supported safety solution across the entire lifecycle of medical software. The BMBF is funding this three-year project with 1.46 million euros.
Patients with severe respiratory or lung diseases require intensive treatment and their lung function needs to be monitored on a continuous basis. As part of the Pneumo.Vest project, Fraunhofer researchers have developed a technology whereby noises in the lungs are recorded using a textile vest with integrated acoustic sensors.
Quantum technology and its applications are gaining relevance for our life day by day! The IVAM Microtechnology Network is going to give interested experts the opportunity to discover the latest advances in quantum technology and to network closely within the community again this year.
Supercomputer simulations are helping scientists discover new types of alloys, called high-entropy alloys. Researchers have used the Stampede2 supercomputer of the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) allocated by the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE).
Two institutes from the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft and one from the Max-Planck-Gesellschaft launched the joint project "LAR3S". In this project, they are taking a completely new approach to producing three-dimensional photonic components with lasers, focusing on selective laser-induced etching and inverse laser drilling.
Precisely applied mechanical pressure can improve the electronic properties of a widely used polymer material. This requires that the material be mechanically processed to an accuracy of a few nanometres, a team from Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU) writes in the scientific journal "Advanced Electronic Materials".
KAIST researchers have successfully demonstrated a new platform for guiding the compressed light waves in very thin van der Waals crystals. Their method to guide the mid-infrared light with minimal loss will provide a breakthrough for the practical applications of ultra-thin dielectric crystals in next-generation optoelectronic devices based on strong light-matter interactions at the nanoscale.
In many industrial sectors the demand for special metal components that are light and have a high strength is increasing. An important manufacturing process for this is the powder-bed fusion process of metals using laser beam (PBF-LB/M). Depending on the application, the process is not yet always competitive compared with conventional production in terms of unit costs.
Bioengineers from the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) have developed the first biohybrid model of human ventricles with helically aligned beating cardiac cells, and have shown that muscle alignment does, in fact, dramatically increases how much blood the ventricle can pump with each contraction.
A smartly designed pressure valve allows soft robots to respond to their environment without the need for computer control, AMOLF researchers revealed. That brings robots with natural movements and tactile responses similar to those of living organisms one step closer to reality.
Data centers - dedicated spaces for storing, processing and disseminating data - enable everything from cloud computing to video streaming. In the process, they consume a large amount of energy transferring data back and forth inside the center. With demand for data growing exponentially, there is increasing pressure for data centers to become more energy efficient.
A Northwestern University-led team of researchers has developed a small, soft, flexible implant that relieves pain on demand and without the use of drugs. The first-of-its-kind device could provide a much-needed alternative to opioids and other highly addictive medications.
Laser cutting techniques are usually powered by high energy beams, so hot that they melt most materials. Now scientists from McGill University have developed a gentler, more precise technique using low-power visible light.
Physicists at the Center for Advanced Systems Understanding (CASUS) and the Institute of Radiation Physics at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) succeeded in significantly improving the density functional theory (DFT) method. This opens up new possibilities for experiments with ultra-high intensity lasers
For decades, field-effect transistors enabled by silicon-based semiconductors have powered the electronics revolution. But in recent years, manufacturers have come up against hard physical limits to further size reductions and efficiency gains of silicon chips. That has scientists and engineers looking for alternatives to conventional metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) transistors.
Effective Opioid Response In the yearlong period ending April 2021, over 100,000 Americans died from drug overdose, the vast majority from synthetic opioids. An estimated 4 million of the 11 million...
