Clean air in production

Dear Sir or Madam,

Due to automation in production, people are often no longer present in production areas. So is it possible to do without effective air filtration systems in these areas? No, says the Fraunhofer Institute for Material and Beam Technology IWS. Because it will never work completely without people. That is why the institute, together with partners, has developed a filter system that is to be used, for example, in the field of additive manufacturing. Read more about it in this news.

Enjoy the day!

AI-driven dynamic face mask adapts to exercise, pollution levels

Materials & Production

During the coronavirus pandemic, many people have grown accustomed to wearing face masks, but that doesn’t mean the masks are always comfortable. Now, researchers have developed a dynamic respirator that modulates its pore size in response to changing conditions, such as exercise or air pollution levels, allowing the wearer to breathe easier when the highest levels of filtration are not required.

New sensor for SARS-CoV-2 and other viruses based on GSI nanotechnology

Electrical Engineering & Nanotechnology

Easy and fast detection of viruses are crucial in a pandemic. Based on single-nanopore membranes of GSI, an international interdisciplinary team of researchers developed a test method that detects SARS-CoV-2 in saliva, without sample pretreatment, with the same sensitivity as a qPCR test, and in only 2 hours. On top, the sensor can distinguish infectious from non-infectious corona viruses.

COMPAMED 2021, the international leading trade fair for the supplier market for medical manufacturing, will be held in parallel with the world’s leading medical trade fair MEDICA 2021 in Halls 13 and 14, and not Halls 8a and 8b as originally planned, at the Düsseldorf trade fair centre from 15 to 18 November. By moving the event to new halls, Messe Düsseldorf is meeting the wishes of the federal state government of North Rhine-Westphalia, namely to ensure that they can continue to use the north area of the trade fair centre for activities in conjunction with vaccine logistics and infrastructure for this federal state.

Cool down overheating in electronics

Materials Science

A team of physicists at CU Boulder has solved the mystery behind a perplexing phenomenon in the nano realm: why some ultra-small heat sources cool down faster if you pack them closer together. The findings, published today in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), could one day help the tech industry design faster electronic devices that overheat less.
