International researcher network “TheLink” aims to accelerate the development chain for nanostructured polymers

The demands placed on new, high-tech materials are continually increasing, and existing material systems are reaching their limits. Due to their exceptional properties and functionalities, nanostructured polymers have a high potential for use in diverse applications.
Nanostructured polymers are either normal polymers mixed with nanostructured particulate materials or polymers which themselves have a nanosized structure. The nanostructures can provide additional functionalities to the ma

ThyssenKrupp develops the world–s first rope-free elevator system to enable the building industry face the challenges of global urbanization

ThyssenKrupp develops the world–s first rope-free elevator system to enable the building industry face the challenges of global urbanization

The era of the rope-dependent elevator is now over, 160 years after its invention. ThyssenKrupp places linear motors in elevator cabins, transforming conventional elevator transportation in vertical metro systems. MULTI elevator technology increases transport capacities and efficiency while reducing the elevator footprint and peak loads from the power supply in buildings. Several cabins in the same shaft moving vertically and horizontally will permit buildings to adopt different heights, shapes

Open collection: Fraunhofer researchers are scanning dinosaur bones&co. in Berlin – and you can watch

The 3D scanning system CultLab3D of Fraunhofer IGD will be tested at the Museum of Natural History in Berlin next week. This should explore the opportunities and challenges to digitalize natural and cultural goods quickly and efficiently, thus preserving them for generations to come as well as making them accessible worldwide. All interested parties are welcome at the panel discussion on 11 November 2014 and to visit the scanning system from 11 to 14 November 2014.
