Fusion for Energy with the support of the European Commission, Japan Atomic Energy Agency and ITER Organisation have successfully tested a prototype superconductor for the ITER Poloidal Field coils made of Niobium(Nb)-Titanium(Ti) reaching a stable operation at 52 kA in a magnetic field of 6.4 Tesla.
Wie Nanotechnologie Unternehmen aufgestellt sind und welchen Weiterbildungsbedarf sie sehen, ist einer aktuellen Studie zu entnehmen, die vom Bundesministerium fuer Bildung und Forschung (BMBF) in Auftrag gegeben und vom VDI Technologiezentrum koordiniert worden ist.
A Florida State University researcher who uses high-powered computers to map the workings of proteins has uncovered a mechanism that gives scientists a better understanding of how evolution occurs at the molecular level.
Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, are continuing their march toward creating a synthetic, gecko-like adhesive, one sticky step at a time. Their latest milestone is the first adhesive that cleans itself after each use without the need for water or chemicals, much like the remarkable hairs found on the gecko lizard's toes.
In a ceremony at Oslo Concert Hall, seven pioneering researchers in the fields of astrophysics, nanoscience and neuroscience were honoured as the first Kavli Prize laureates, receiving a gold medal and scroll.
