Solar Innovation to Support "Energiewende"
05 Sep | HeliatekFull Text External Link Indicator
"Dresden, Germany, August 21, 2012 – Federal Environment Minister Peter Altmaier, along with Saxony’s Prime Minister, Stanislaw Tillich, visited Heliatek GmbH in Dresden on August 17, 2012. Heliatek’s innovative products will support the energy transformation towards sustainability in new ways never thought possible before.

Heliatek manufactures energy harvesting components made of flexible solar films based on organic semiconductor materials. The company inaugurated its first production facility last March in Dresden in the presence of Prime Minister Tillich. The state-of-the-art manufacturing line is now up and running, with the plant carrying out the scheduled trial production. This visit emphasizes the German Government’s commitment to continue to provide extensive support for the research and development of environmentally friendly energy technologies."
Super Metal Alloys Achieved with Design Tool for Stable Nanocrystals
30 Aug | IEEE SpectrumFull Text External Link Indicator
"It has been well understood that if you could decrease the size of the crystals that make up the structures of most metals, you would improve the mechanical properties of those metals, including their strength. However, finding a way to decrease crystal size and maintain that smaller size in the face of heat has proven difficult. Typically, the crystals want to grow larger if exposed to heat or stress.

Now, MIT researchers may have found a way to ensure that the crystals maintain their small size even in the presence of heat and stress, thus achieving the goal of creating stable nanocrystalline materials."
