Nearly Hard as Steel: Aluminum with Fullerenes

Russian researchers with Siemens Corporate Technology (CT) are using special carbon nanoparticles to optimize materials. They are adding fullerenes —soccer ball-shaped molecules comprising 60 carbon atoms (C60)— to aluminum to obtain a new material that is roughly three times harder than conventional composites, yet weights much less. The lightweight yet strong aluminum could be used […]

Bright and Efficient Illumination

Thomas Alva Edison invented the long-lasting light bulb more than a hundred years ago. The principle of the filament has remained the same to this day – as has its poor yield: The bulb converts only 5 to 10 percent of the invested energy into light, while most of it becomes heat. Fluorescent tubes and […]

Cities can reduce their electricity costs by about 50 percent

LED street light bulbs from Osram will soon light up the entire old town of Regensburg, Germany. The city initially equipped two streets with the retrofit light bulbs – developed by Osram Opto Semiconductors and Siemens Regensburg – to test whether this technology would be right for the medieval world heritage site.
