ACHEMA, Frankfurt, Germany, 15-19 May 2006

Markus and AndersThe ACHEMA fair is the world's largest chemical engineering trade fair. It's held every three years in Frankfurt, Germany and this year some 4000 exhibitors attracted 200.000 visitors from all over the world.

Anders Selmer and Markus Kraft presented the new Reactor WebLab together with Siemens in the education hall and Anders also gave a talk in one of the e-learning sessions. The Reactor WebLab's use of an industry standard operating system (SIMATIC PCS7) to teach core chemical engineering attracted a lot of interest from both other universities and from companies working with operator training for industry.

A new world (dis)order for efficient semiconductors

11 November 2019

Scientists from our Optoelectronic Materials and Device Spectroscopy group investigating perovskite materials for next generation solar cells and flexible LEDs have discovered that they can be more efficient when their chemical compositions are less ordered, vastly simplifying production processes and lowering cost.

The topology of disordered 3D graphenes: Rosalind Franklin’s pre-DNA problem untangled

8 November 2019

Researchers from our Computational Modelling group have published a possible solution to why disordered carbon structures are reluctant to turn into graphite, a puzzle that perplexed Rosalind Franklin before her discovery of the structure of DNA.

September paper of the month: flexible production of micro and nanofluidic devices

22 October 2019

Researchers from our Laser Analytics group have developed a laser-based manufacturing process that can produce combined nanofluidic and microfluidic devices in a fast and scalable manner.
