Thermal storage for the energy transition

The energy is not stored in the form of increased heat but in the form of a chemical state

05-Oct-2021

In Germany, 55 percent of final energy consumption goes towards heating and cooling. However, a lot of heat dissipates unused because it is not generated as and when required. Thermal storage using zeolite material allows heat to be stored for long periods of time without losing any. Fraunhofer ...

When metal flows like liquid glass: a technology for producing superplastic wire is proposed

New ways to modify the structure of aluminium alloys for improving their performance

08-Jul-2020

Currently, low-alloy aluminium is widely used in electrical engineering and machine building. At the same time, it should be noted that modern electrical engineering places very high and in some cases mutually exclusive requirements to aluminium alloys. For example, conductive aluminium alloys ...

Scientists develop self-cleaning aluminium surface

28-May-2020

A project team of Technische Universität Dresden and the Fraunhofer Institute for Material and Beam Technology IWS structured an aluminium plate with a laser process in such a way that water droplets no longer adhere and dirt particles can be removed from the surface - completely without chemical ...

Heterometallic copper-aluminum super atom discovered

27-Sep-2018

On the outside, the cluster made of 55 copper and aluminum atoms looks like a crystal, but chemically it has the properties of an atom. The heterometallic superatom which chemists of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have created provides the prerequisites for developing new, more ...

Unconventional superconductor may be used to create quantum computers of the future

21-Feb-2018

With their insensitivity to decoherence what are known as Majorana particles could become stable building blocks of a quantum computer. The problem is that they only occur under very special circumstances. Now researchers at Chalmers University of Technology have succeeded in manufacturing a ...

Spin current from heat

New material increases efficiency

22-Nov-2017

Electronic devices such as computers generate heat that mostly goes to waste. Physicists at Bielefeld University have found a way to use this energy: They apply the heat to generate magnetic signals known as 'spin currents'. In future, these signals could replace some of the electrical current in ...
