In motors, generators and similar electric machines, the electrical current that powers them generates magnetic fields that magnetize some of the metallic components. Choosing the right magnetic material is crucial for designing efficient machines, so researchers from the Institute of Electrical ...
Covestro and partners working on new climate-friendly process
Carbon dioxide is being used ever more widely as a novel raw material in plastics production. As part of the “Production Dreams” project, materials manufacturer Covestro is working with RWTH Aachen University and the Technical University of Berlin, both in Germany, on a further process that will ...
Siemens gifted the RWTH Aachen Institute of Jet Propulsion and Turbomachinery a cutaway model of the Siemens gas turbine SGT5-8000H. The original gas turbine in a gas and steam turbine power plant has held the world record in effficiency for about two years with 60.75 percent. On a scale of 1:10, ...
Future nanoelectronic information storage devices are also tiny batteries – astounding finding opens up new possibilities
Resistive memory cells (ReRAM) are regarded as a promising solution for future generations of computer memories. They will dramatically reduce the energy consumption of modern IT systems while significantly increasing their performance. Unlike the building blocks of conventional hard disk drives ...
REACH requires tests for skin sensitizing action
Promega and BASF have jointly developed an alternative method to animal studies that can reliably detect the allergenic potential of substances. Using a newly developed cell line, the reaction of skin cells to allergenic substances can now be demonstrated in the test tube. Allergic skin reactions ...
The new Helmholtz Energy Alliance develops “Technologies for the Future Power Grid”
Getting the grid prepared for the increased use of renewable energy sources is the goal of the Helmholtz Energy Alliance “Technologies for the Future Power Grid”coordinated by KIT. Helmholtz researchers are developing solutions for a flexible and reliable grid which manages the fluctuating power ...
Bayer is taking a new direction in the production of high-quality plastics with the help of carbon dioxide (CO2) from the energy sector. A pilot plant has come on stream at Chempark Leverkusen to trial the new process on a technical scale. The plant produces a chemical precursor into which CO2 ...
The first example of Brønsted acid asymmetric catalysis in aqueous solution is reported by Magnus Rueping and Thomas Theissman at Aachen University, Germany. Using a chiral phosphoric acid catalyst Rueping demonstrates highly enantioselective hydrogenation of quinolines in water, a reaction ...
German Federal Ministry of Education and Research provides funding of more than EUR 4.5 million for “Dream Production“
Researchers from Bayer MaterialScience and Bayer Technology Services are working together with RWE Power AG and academic partner RWTH Aachen University on the sustainable use of carbon dioxide (CO2). At the heart of what has been called the “Dream Production” project, sits the construction and ...
DFG-funded instrumentation enables world-class research in electron microscopy
Two new high-resolution transmission electron microscopes, co-financed by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation), are set to open up new opportunities for research in physics and materials science. The new research microscopes at RWTH Aachen University and the ...
