Research Association of Industrial Furnace Manufactures
The Thermprocess fair in Dusseldorf is the world's most important platform for the presentation of highly innovative technologies in industrial thermal processing technology. The Department for Industrial Furnaces and Heat Engineering (IOB) was represented with its own booth in the Research Association of Industrial Furnace Manufactures (FOGI).

Topological Insulators: Stacking Instead of Mixing

The overheating of computer chips is a major obstacle to the development of faster and more efficient computers and mobile phones. One promising remedy for this problem could be a class of materials first discovered just a few years ago: topological insulators.

Researching Soft Matter
Our modern era, in stark contrast to the prehistoric Stone, Bronze, and Iron Ages, is characterized by soft matter. Polymers, colloids, amphiphilic structures, and emulsions are amongst the materials categorized by this term. Scientists are primarily interested in the properties of soft matter in order to develop new applications for its structures.


As part of a cooperation project between RWTH Aachen University and Forschungszentrum Jülich (JARA), a new database was created, that provides comprehensive overview of the main research areas in energy of the two institutions.
