The Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS conducts applied research on high-performance ceramics. The institute‘s three sites in Dresden and Hermsdorf (Thuringia), Germany, collectively represent Europe‘s largest R&D institute dedicated to the study of ceramics.
Imagine a truck tarp that can harvest the energy of sunlight! With the help of new textile-based solar cells developed by Fraunhofer researchers, semitrailers could soon be producing the electricity needed to power cooling systems or other onboard equipment.
Dr. Mathias Herrmann was honored with the JECS Trust Award for his scientific publications and the appointment as ECerS fellow during the 16th Conference of the European Ceramic Society ECerS in Turin.
The 3rd Dresden Battery Days will be dedicated to the exchange of knowledge between international electrochemical energy storage experts. Focus topic of the symposium is “All-solid-state batteries – already on the way from the laboratory to production?”
The symposium will focus on haptic solutions and medical applications as well as other technological developments related to piezoceramics and functional units to provide solutions for control and positioning tasks, measuring tasks, power supply, materials treatment, and ultrasound and vibration applications.
