DFG To Set Up 14 New Collaborative Research Centres
... which consist of gas turbines combined with steam circuits
andsteam turbines, are designed to achieve an efficiency of about 65 per cent when burningnatural gas and of approximately 55 per cent when burning coal from about 2025 onwards. Inorder to operate at the necessary temperatures new materials need to b...
New Machine Slashes Time, Cost To Make Unique Lenses
...ed to make computer chips by tracingout integrated circuits
on wafers of silicon. "Aspheres are better than spherical lenses in theseapplications because they bend light rays more precisely," saysPresident Donald Golini of Rochester optics firm QEDTechnologies, which was not part of the consortium that d...
U-M Engineers Win Army Grant To Build Artificial Eye
..." hesaid, including fewer problems with overheated circuits
and remote capability. Yet another advantage of the proposed system, he said, is that whereas humanscan only see light in the visible portion of the spectrum, the optoelectronicsensor will be able to convert any wavelength of light into usable inform...
