Lush screens, higher image quality with “8k” and “HDR”, flexible displays to curl up – in the TV market A few years.

8k canvas shows a pin-sharp image of a bee sitting on a honeycomb.

With the 8k image quality, you can even recognize every single hair of a bee.

Who does not remember the good old tube: televisions with screen diagonals of a maximum of 32 inches, the equivalent of 82 centimeters, and stately 60 kilograms of weight? Until about 20 years ago they were found in German living rooms. Today, (more…)

Low transport losses and small cross sections will shape the transport of large quantities of electricity over long distances. The cables can also be used with magnetic resonance imaging scanners, ships and e-planes.

Hospital infections are said to be one of the leading causes of death in developed countries over the next few decades. The new status report of the VDI Society Materials Engineering (GME) deals with the topic and shows how innovative strategies can solve the problem. Nanotechnology plays an important role in this.

The thin superconductor foil makes new nano-coatings possible, for example for space or medicine. PhD student XianLin Zeng from the team of Uwe Hartmann co-developed the film.
