A phase diagram portrays the equilibrium conditions between the thermodynamically separated phases or it shows which phases are present in the material system at different temperatures, pressures and compositions. Thermoanalytical methods play an important role in establishing binary and ternary phase diagrams. They are based on the principle that, when a phase transition occurs, the physical, chemical and/or structural properties change.
Heat must be dissipated from electronic devices quickly and efficiently to ensure optimal performance and to prevent premature component failure. Like CPUs and GPUs, LED inverters as well as photovoltaic inverters require excellent thermal management. Thermal interface materials (TIMs) are available as greases, tapes, filled elastomer pads and phase-change materials.

Silicon-based technologies have always played a significant role within the energy industry. They currently dominate the solar energy market with a market share of over 90 percent.
In addition, the continual improvements being made to silicon (e.g., through silicon crystal growth techniques and enhancements to purity, efficiency, etc.) are securing its strong position within the energy industry over the near future.

Selb – A new research partnership between NETZSCH Analyzing and Testing and the Swinburne University of Technology, Australia will see NETZSCH’s unique in-mould cure monitoring technology implemented in Swinburne’s Industry 4.0 carbon-fibre composite product Testlab. The facility, to be located in Melbourne’s East will be the world’s first industrial scale carbon-fibre composite manufacturing facility using a 3D printed “multilayer” approach.
Sealing elements undergo continuous changes in operating and environmental conditions. They are subject to natural, thermo-oxidative or mechanical aging processes and must be replaced after a certain time.
Rubber seals consist of elastomer composites that cannot process signals in their pure form. In many cases, however, signal processing would definitely be advantageous, since seals are often installed at crucial key positions in machines and or parts.
Billions of pounds of carpets are generated annually worldwide. A large percentage of which ends up in landfills is problematic because nylon is non-biodegradable.
Limitations in landfill capacity and the environmental impact of disposing of carpet waste in this manner have made recovering nylon from carpet waste an increasingly important enterprise.
Thermoelectric materials with a high efficiency that are used, for example, to generate electricity from heat, are naturally brittle and fragile. It would be much more user-friendly to use flexible materials. There are already thin plastic films, so-called PEDOT´s, which are flexible and can be applied over large areas at low cost. However, these have … Read moreFlexible layer structured Bi2Te3 thermoelectric on a carbon nanotube scaffold
