Clean without scrubbing and using chemicals

Dresden scientists have developed a self-cleaning metallic surface. A project team of the Technische Universität Dresden and the Fraunhofer Institute for Material and Beam Technology IWS structured an aluminum plate with a laser process in such a way that water droplets can roll at its surface and thus remove dirt particles – completely without chemical Read more about Clean without scrubbing and using chemicals[…]

High-tech analysis of airbone rust on superyachts

To avoid long-term damage to superyachts caused by airborne rust, timely and accurate identification of contamination is required. A superficial diagnosis may result in inappropriate cleaning or repair, in turn resulting in higher costs. Technologies such as 3D microscopy provide new options for detecting contamination from rust particles and selecting the right treatment. Airborne rust Read more about High-tech analysis of airbone rust on superyachts[…]

How micro-lens arrays help measure the color of oceans

As part of NASA’s PACE project, a spectrometer in orbit will measure the “color of the ocean” – the intensity distribution of light in several closely spaced wavelength ranges with unprecedented spectral resolution. An important component of this is a micro-lens array from INGENERIC, which couples the received light in the short-wave infrared with high Read more about How micro-lens arrays help measure the color of oceans[…]
