3D Printing Materials Conference

The roads to success in the 3D printing sector will depend on fine-tuning materials to the needs of each application. This fine-tuning process will involve the type and the quality, strength and costs of materials, but also the selection of marketing channels and for example packaging of the end product. Since each user group and Read more about 3D Printing Materials Conference[…]

The first light atomic nucleus with a second face

To some degree of approximation, atomic nuclei look like spheres which in most cases are distorted to a greater or lesser extent. When the nucleus is excited, its shape may change, but only for an extremely brief moment, after which it returns to its original state. A relatively permanent ‘second face’ of atomic nuclei has Read more about The first light atomic nucleus with a second face[…]

How is the European Union progressing towards its Europe 2020 targets?
