  • Finding valuable materials in metallurgical dumps

    When it comes to important raw materials, Germany is dependent on imports - a situation that government and industry would love to change. Could we possibly have buried things in dumps that we could still use? Might the blast-furnace slag, converter dust, or blast-furnace gas sludge deposited in met more

  • New laser-patterning technique turns metals into supermaterials

    By zapping ordinary metals with femtosecond laser pulses researchers from the University of Rochester in New York have created extraordinary new surfaces that efficiently absorb light, repel water and clean themselves. The multifunctional materials could find use in durable, low maintenance solar co more

  • New insight into thermoelectric materials may boost green technologies

    Thermoelectric materials can turn a temperature difference into an electric voltage. Among their uses in a variety of specialized applications: generating power on space probes and cooling seats in fancy cars. University of Miami (UM) physicist Joshua Cohn and his collaborators report new surprising more

  • The Determination of Hazardous Substances According to RoHS and WEEE Directives

    1st July 2006 is an important deadline for the electro- and electronics industries. This date bans hazardous substances like lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium and polybrominated biphenyls and diphenyl ethers from electro- and electronic equipment. This restriction, even though in discussion since 1991, has become more and more important from year to year because of tons of electronic waste releasing toxic substances which are accumulated in the environment, the food chain and all human beings. In order to enforce the substances ban and the limitation or substitution of hazardous components, elemental analysis is obviously the most important control measure for monitoring limiting values. This requires precise analytical systems such as X-ray fluorescence, ICP- and atomic absorption spectrometers. These instruments are able to detect trace concentrations of hazardous compounds - for example cadmium, using an atomic absorption spectrometer in the flame atomization mode up to 0.1 mg/L, or using the di more

  • UV/Vis/NIR Spectrometry for the Film Thickness Determination of Transparent Films and Layers

    Within nearly all branches of industry we find products, which are coated with thin transparent layers to improve the surface features: Window sheet glasses obtain changes in reflection and absorption behavior, ceramics are treated with coatings to lower water adhesion, coatings on metals create corrosion resistance or better sliding factors. Transparent coatings play also a major role in the semiconductor business. One of the important features to be determined and controlled is the thickness of the layers to balance performance and material input during development and production more

  • A Platform System for Microwave Sample Preparation

    Today's technology enables the near-perfect determination of trace elements in all concentrations down to the ultra trace range. Modern AAS, ICP-OES, ICP-MS or electrochemical procedures such as voltammetry are reliable and accurate measuring methods more

  • Spin Dynamics in Nanostructures

    Spintronics is a leading contender for future nano-scale, "beyond Moore", data storage, processing, and transmission technologies. In particular, magnetism-based spintronics has enormous largely unexplored potential given its two particular features: (i) the extreme robustness of the magnetic order more

Metal

Metal . In chemistry, a metal (Greek : Metallon) is an element that readily loses electrons to form positive ion s (cations) and has metallic bond s between metal atoms. Metals form ionic bonds with non-metals. They are sometimes described ... more
