Flexibly adapting production processes to the energy situation

Solar power, wind power and the lot – the growing use of renewable energy sources is resulting in substantial fluctuations in energy production. Fraunhofer researchers have now made it possible to design industrial processes in small and medium-sized businesses to be demand-responsive. This enables companies to maximize their use of green power from their own Read more about Flexibly adapting production processes to the energy situation[…]

Researchers found a way to boost the efficiency of organic solar cells several times

An international team of materials scientists from France, Russia and Kazakhstan found a way to boost the efficiency of organic solar cells several times. The new study, published in the Journal of Materials Chemistry A, has shown that ordered structures based on organic molecules can be used to produce solar power. Solar panels, or batteries, are one Read more about Researchers found a way to boost the efficiency of organic solar cells several times[…]

Increased power grid reliability with Artificial Intelligence

The grid is changing as the big, centralized providers of the past are replaced by smaller, distributed suppliers. Keeping such complex networks running stable requires high-resolution sensor technology – AI provides a way to make accurate predictions and automatically detect any disturbances or anomalies in real time. Here is how Fraunhofer researchers developed the compression Read more about Increased power grid reliability with Artificial Intelligence[…]

Clean through solar power

In combination with the right materials, sunbeams can work wonders: they clean building facades and decompose pollutants from the air or in the water. The magic word is photocatalysis. In practice, though, the effectiveness of this „miracle cure“ fluctuates greatly, depending on the material used and the environmental factors. With a new measuring device, researchers Read more about Clean through solar power[…]

Blue-enriched LED light could improve our everyday lives

Here is a good news for those of who have difficulty with morning alertness. A KAIST research team proposed that a blue-enriched LED light can effectively help people overcome morning drowsiness. This study will provide the basis for major changes in future lighting strategies and thereby help create better indoor environments. Considerable research has been Read more about Blue-enriched LED light could improve our everyday lives[…]

Ultrasound as a method for blood coagulation monitoring

A new approach for the prevention of thrombosis was proposed by researchers from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT) and the Russian National Research Center for Hematology (NRCH). In modern clinical practice, thrombolysis is performed when thrombi formed in blood vessels pose a threat to a patient’s life. Thrombolytic procedures themselves are associated with a Read more about Ultrasound as a method for blood coagulation monitoring[…]

Split and continuous restricted sleep schedules affect cognition and glucose levels differently in teens

The handful of studies that examined split sleep schedules with normal total sleep duration in working-age adults found that both schedules yield comparable brain performance. However, no study has looked at the impact of such schedules on brain function and glucose levels together, especially when total sleep is shorter than optimal. The latter is important Read more about Split and continuous restricted sleep schedules affect cognition and glucose levels differently in teens[…]

A nearly perfect simulation of the human hand

The TSA – Tissue Softness Analyzer represents a nearly perfect simulation of the human hand and shows excellent results in measuring base tissue and finished tissue products (toilet paper, handkerchiefs, facials). In case of hand sheets made in the lab, the device also convinced in measuring the influence of pulp quality (short fibers), refining or softener. But Read more about A nearly perfect simulation of the human hand[…]

Neuromorphic device on the way to creating technology that mimics the human brain

A new transistor based on organic materials has been developed by scientists at Linköping University. It has the ability to learn, and is equipped with both short-term and long-term memory. The work is a major step on the way to creating technology that mimics the human brain. Until now, brains have been unique in being Read more about Neuromorphic device on the way to creating technology that mimics the human brain[…]
