On the way to lead-free technology

The change-over to lead-free products is in full progress. The problem is however that the environmentally friendly alternatives have to be as effi cient as the lead-containing variants. One example is the injection system of diesel engines. Lead-free functional materials can be found faster by means of computer simulation methods.

Conductor paths for marvelous light

Organic light-emitting diodes are seen as the basis for a new generation of lamps: Large-area lamps that can be randomly shaped and fl exibly integrated into interior design. But the 'illuminated glass' is still very expensive. Researchers want to optimize the lamps of the future and reduce the price by a new manufacturing process.

Pivoting hooks of graphene's chemical cousin could revolutionize work of electron microscopes

The single layer material Graphene was the subject of a Nobel prize this year but research led by a team of researchers at the University of Warwick has found molecular hooks on the surface of its close chemical cousin, Graphene Oxide, that will potentially provide massive benefits to researchers using transmission electron microscopes. They could even be used in building molecular scale mechanisms.
