£1 billion Advanced Propulsion Centre announces Hub location at Warwick
11 August, 2014
The Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC) has selected the University of Warwick as the site for its Hub location, supporting the ten year, £1 billion industry and government commitment to the development of low carbon propulsion
3D printing trials of unmanned aircraft with one-way tickets
22 April, 2014
Engineers at the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre at the University of Sheffield are working on the prototype of a 3D printed unmanned aerial vehicle. Low production costs might lead to 3D unmanned aircraft that could be disposable and sent on

Functional materials for supercapacitors "becoming a $5bn market by 2025"
ID TechEx : 10 August, 2014  (Special Report)
IDTechEx Research’s brand new report, Functional Materials for Supercapacitors/Ultracapacitors/EDLC 2015-2025, forecasts that the functional materials for supercapacitors market will reach $5 billion before 2025.
 
Epoxy adhesive demonstrates advantages of ductility on composite single lap joints
Huntsman Advanced Materials : 10 August, 2014  (Application Story)
An Araldite epoxy adhesive system from Huntsman Advanced Materials has been used in an experiment conducted by a research group, under the direction of Dr Trevor Young of the Irish Centre for Composites Research at the University of Limerick, in which the bondline stress concentrations and the influence of adhesive ductility on composite single lap joints were investigated.
 
Super black - world’s darkest material - launched at Farnborough International
Surrey Nanosystems : 10 August, 2014  (Company News)
Sensitive electro-optical imaging and target-acquisition systems will achieve new levels of range and sensitivity performance thanks to a UK company’s breakthrough in developing a ′super black’ material to be launched at the Farnborough International Air Show.
 
Neutron scattering experiment resolves a contentious superconducting issue
Technische Universitaet Muenchen (Walter Schottky Institute) : 10 August, 2014  (Technical Article)
Scientists around the globe are trying to understand the phenomenon of loss-free electric power transmission by high-temperature superconductors. Materials that exhibit this effect at room temperature would bear huge technical potential. Recently symmetry changes in the electronic phases of high-temperature superconductors near their transition temperature had been attributed to doping effects. But an international team of scientists has now discovered that solely spin dynamics of the electrons are responsible for these spontaneous changes.
 
All-in-one camera for transmission electron microscopy
Gatan : 10 August, 2014  (New Product)
Gatan has announced the OneView camera for transmission electron microscopy.
 
Perovskite spray-on solar cells could help cut the cost of solar energy
University of Sheffield : 10 August, 2014  (Company News)
Perovskite is a promising new material for solar cells, combing high efficiency with low materials costs. A team of scientists at the University of Sheffield are the first to fabricate perovskite solar cells using a spray-painting process – a discovery that could help cut the cost of solar electricity. The spray-painting method could be used in high volume manufacturing.
 
Joint development for commercialising graphene development
Morgan Advanced Materials (Stourport) : 10 August, 2014  (Company News)
Morgan Advanced Materials has announced a new joint development agreement with The University of Manchester, aimed at scaling up a new process for manufacturing graphene – a one-atom thick carbon allotrope first isolated at the university ten years ago and for which two Nobel Prizes were awarded.
 
Drakelands tungsten mine development gets revised planning approval
SLR Consulting : 10 August, 2014  (Company News)
SLR Consulting has helped secure a revised planning approval for a £75 million processing facility at Wolf Minerals’ Drakelands tungsten mine near Plymouth. On completion the plant will produce up to 5000 tonnes of tungsten concentrate and 1000 tonnes of tin concentrate a year at what is the third largest tungsten resource in the world.
