It is impossible to imagine the modern world without electronic sensors, and certainly not the automotive world. They increase the reliability of vehicles, enable new functions, and help reduce costs. To do this, they must be safe from manipulation – which is not always the case today.
All over the world, hydrogen is seen as a beacon of hope for the energy transition. But to produce it on an industrial scale, seawater is needed. However, its desalination has so far only been possible with the use of large amounts of energy. Energy experts Yuan Zhang and Volker Presser have found a way
Self-ventilating sportswear, self-healing concrete walls, bio-plastics that dissolve after use, or implants for the long-term and personalized delivery of drugs to the body are just a few examples of the application of so-called “living materials”. The Leibniz ScienceCampus “Living Therapeutic Materials” based in Saarbrücken is dedicating this four-day international conference “Engineered Living Materials” to the
What makes a gecko able to climb almost any wall? And how can we benefit from the underlying phenomenon for industrial pick-and-place applications?
Nanoscribe News gives you the answer.
The INM – Leibniz Institute for New Materials in Saarbrücken is a partner in the EU project I-Seed. The goal of the project is to develop intelligent plant seed-inspired soft robots that disperse on and in the soil to monitor soil and climate parameters.
