New technology for warm white LEDs

27-Feb-2019

Light emitting diodes (LEDs) provide significant energy savings over conventional light sources. In terms of light quality, however, conventional lighting solutions are still superior to LEDs as the latter are unable to reproduce the entire color spectrum. Most importantly, LEDs lack an efficient ...

Producing polymer structures faster – two processes in one machine

08-Feb-2019

Either fast or precise – both cannot be achieved in the production of the finest polymer structures with the laser. Or maybe they can? Combining stereolithography and multiphoton polymerization should make it possible: Scientists at the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT are developing ...

Elucidating the Atomic Mechanism of Superlubricity

Tribology: Design Rules for Extremely Low Coefficients of Friction

15-Jan-2019

The phenomenon of so-called superlubricity is known, but so far the explanation at the atomic level has been missing: for example, how does extremely low friction occur in bearings? Researchers from the Fraunhofer Institutes IWM and IWS jointly deciphered a universal mechanism of superlubricity ...

Tandem Solar Cells – Record Efficiency for Silicon-based Multi-junction Solar Cell

09-Jan-2019

Silicon solar cells dominate the photovoltaic market today but the technology approaches the theoretical maximum efficiency that can be achieved with silicon as the only absorber material. Tandem solar cells, on the other hand, combine several absorber materials, enabling a better energetic use ...
