The Cooperative Research Project FLEX-G started on June 1, 2017 under the federal construction technology initiative named ENERGIEWENDEBAUEN funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (FR 03ET1470A). The main goal of the research project is to investigate technologies for the manufacturing of translucent and transparent membrane roof and façade elements with integrated optoelectronic components. The focus lies on a switchable total energy transmittance (often referred to as the solar factor or solar heat gain and “g-value” in Europe) and on flexible solar cell integration to significantly contribute to both energy saving and power generation in buildings.Solar modules and a variety of energy management systems are well established in small and large buildings to

Clamping down on causality by probing laser cavities

By monitoring the optical response of an externally probed laser cavity before and after gain clamping, a University of Central Florida and Yale collaboration reveals the underlying mechanisms driving the cavity's responsesSince the realization of the first laser cavity countless questions have been asked for which laser light has provided the answer. Numerous questions have also...Powered by WPeMatico

New method of analysing lymphoedema – Making digital 3D images of tissue

Abuja, african inspired, BLOGS, BUSINESS, IkaTv, Innovation, Innovation Africa, wazobia companies, Youths
Researchers at the Cells-in-Motion Cluster of Excellence have developed a new method for producing digital 3D reconstructions of blood and lymphatic vessels from tissue samples and then creating images of them for analysis. The study has been published in the “JCI Insight” journal.When researchers and physicians analyse tissue, for example in order to investigate any pathological changes, they often look at the tissue samples under the...Powered by WPeMatico

New findings on the past and future of sea ice cover in the Arctic

Despite the high temperatures, geologists and climate researchers find evidence that there was sea ice at the North Pole during the last interglacialTemperatures in the Arctic are currently climbing two to three times faster than the global average. The result - and, thanks to feedback effects, also the...Powered by WPeMatico

High-speed switching for ultrafast electromechanical switches and sensors

Abuja, african inspired, BLOGS, BUSINESS, IkaTv, Innovation, Innovation Africa, wazobia companies, Youths
Unlike the slow ferroelastic domain switching expected for ceramics, high-speed sub-microsecond ferroelastic domain switching and simultaneous lattice deformation are directly observed for the Pb(Zr0.4Ti0.6)O3 thin films. This exciting finding paves the way for high-frequency ultrafast electromechanical switches and sensors.Piezo micro electro mechanical systems (piezoMEMS) are miniaturized devices exhibiting piezoelectricity, i.e., the appearance of an electric charge under...Powered by WPeMatico

The recently created UZH Life Sciences Fund is making its first investment, putting one million CHF into CUTISS, a young company aiming to bring bioengineered skin grafts to market. The fund will be investing in further spin-offs with the goal of accelerating the transfer of UZH research findings into practice. The UZH Life Sciences Fund is financed by equal contributions from the UZH Foundation and the Novartis Venture Fund.
