New production technology opens way to quantum light sources with fifiber optic compatibility


For the first time, a team led by the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) has now presented an appropriate production technology for single-photons using silicon nanopillars: a chemical etching method followed by ion bombardment.

Split manufacturing for trustworthy electronics "Made in Germany"


A consortium of Fraunhofer institutes and well-known German industrial companies is developing a split-manufacturing approach for semiconductor production in the project "Distributed Manufacturing for Novel and Trustworthy Electronics T4T". This will enable the secure assembly of subsystems in Germany and safeguard supply chains.

Building scaffolds using exotic elements: Research team succeeds in creating novel metal-organic frameworks


Discovered 25 years ago, metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) quickly gained the aura of a "miracle material" due to their particular properties: their large inner surfaces and tuneable pore sizes facilitate improved applications, for example in materials separation and gas storage.

Putting composites to the test intelligently


Structural damage in lightweight components is often difficult to detect using conventional non-destructive testing methods. Two new research robots at the Institute of Polymer Technology (IKT) at the University of Stuttgart, working autonomously and synchronously, are intended to optimize the testing technology for multifunctional high-performance materials.

Researchers develop self-sterilising plastic film


Researchers at Queen’s University Belfast have developed a ground-breaking plastic film that can kill viruses that land on its surface with room light. The self-sterilising film is the first of its kind – it is low cost to produce, can be readily scaled and could be used for disposable aprons, tablecloths, and curtains in hospitals.
