A great number of day-to-day products that at a glance seem simple have very complex structures. All of these structures can be explored with neutrons or photons.

Scientific research has contributed to the development of a variety of products such as plastics, cosmetics, chemicals, building materials, or to take something closer to you, the screen of your mobile phone, a medicine prescribed to you when taken ill or your favorite shampoo.

Science link’s offer is relevant for various industries. Companies that have not yet explored these opportunities are welcome with their application. Next call will open during the spring of 2015.

Support and expertise

In addition to a study at the suitable research facility the offer also includes consultation, support and assistance before, during and after the analysis. Experts from the research fields within the network will provide you with:

  • Consultations via the Science Link contact points and experts from local universities and scientific institutes on the matters of the R&D work to be done
  • Support in the preparation and performance of experiments at the research facilities
  • Assistance with data analysis and interpretation of the result

The benefit, an example

Their power is everywhere. They power our mobile phones, notebooks and help entertain us with portable consoles they even facilitate our mobility with electric and hybrid cars. With the upsurge of demand for battery-powered devices, research that targets the development of new cost-efficient, high-performance battery materials is of high interest.

Scientists from Giessen University, DESY, HRL Laboratories, and the University of California at Los Angeles have identified a promising new material for use in lithium ion batteries that could result in the development of new cost-efficient, high-performance battery materials.

This is just one of many examples of a beneficial co-operation between companies - the industries, and science.

Did you know?

That there are two important quality factors for a lithium-ion battery:
(1) The amount of lithium stored in the battery as well as
(2) The number of charging cycles before the battery capacity drops, i.e. the lifetime of the battery.
