    Exhibition at karo 5 shows history of the institute Reaktortechnik at TU Darmstadt

    An exhibition shows the development of the institute “Reaktortechnik” (reactor engineering) at TU Darmstadt from its beginning in 1962. The exposition focuses on the reorientation of the institute's research in the years after the Chernobyl disaster and a further restructuring to the Department of Energy Systems and Technology in 2004. With the latter TU Darmstadt responded to the changes in society regarding nuclear power.

    How to control the wetting dynamics of droplets

    Dynamic wetting of electrolyte droplet without (left) and with (right) an applied electric potential. Freeze frame of molecular dynamics simulation.

    Early spreading of electrolyte drops can be controlled via an electric potential and electrolyte concentration

    The early spreading of a drop is speeded up by the electrostatic energy stored in the electric double layer near the solid-liquid interface, a study by scientists at the Center of Smart Interfaces found. The degree of speeding-up does not only depend on electric potential, but also on electrolyte concentration. The results of the research were published in Physical Review Letters.

    Presentation by Werner Zapka, XaarJet AB and Royal Institute of Technology Stockholm, Sweden

    With the advance of new types of inkjet printheads, new ‘functional’ ink formulations and increasing knowledge in the understanding and optimization of the drop formation process it was possible to develop inkjet printing into an important manufacturing technique in a number of industrial application areas.

    With their boiling experiment a team from the Institute of Technical Thermodynamics takes part in the 100th parabolic flight campaign of DLR, ESA and CNES.

    To enhance the measurement of boiling phenomena a team from the Institute of Technical Thermodynamics of TU Darmstadt uses phases of microgravity produced during parabolic flights. A new aspect of the campaign are additional manoeuvers in flight that give the researchers an opportunity to conduct their experiment under gravitational conditions reigning on Moon and Mars.

    New engineering method curbs carbon dioxide emissions cost and energy efficient

    The Carbonate Looping process to capture carbon dioxide studied at TU Darmstadt could curb CO2-emissions of power stations by more than 90 percent consuming considerably less energy and being cheaper than previous approaches.
