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
MEPS: Steep rise in nickel costs boosts stainless steel prices
22 April, 2014
The forecast upturn in demand for stainless steel did not materialise during the first quarter of 2014. As a result, basis figures, net of alloy adjustments, have risen very little, if at all. However, recent increases in nickel costs have lifted

Highly non-linear metamaterials for laser technology
Technische Universitaet Muenchen (Walter Schottky Institute) : 03 July, 2014  (Special Report)
Non-linear optical materials are widely used in laser systems. However, high light intensity and long propagation are required to produce strong non-linear optical effects. Researchers at The University of Texas at Austin and the Technische Universitaet Muenchen have created metamaterials with a million times stronger non-linear optical response, compared to traditional non-linear materials, and demonstrated frequency conversion in films 100 times thinner than a human hair, using light intensity comparable to that of a laser pointer.
Conflict minerals - moving beyond compliance
Bureau Veritas : 03 July, 2014  (Special Report)
Certain minerals originating in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and adjoining countries have been a major source of international concern. Armed groups in the region are accused of severe human rights abuses and of using proceeds from the sales of these minerals to fuel regional conflicts. A broad range of public, private, and civil society groups have been working to bring light to this issue and, in recent years, legislation has been passed to address this problem. Bureau Veritas, in partnership with Estelle Levin Ltd. (ELL), offers public training to issuer and non-issuer manufacturers, suppliers, and vendors to educate them on conflict minerals regulations and to present the solutions available to address their challenges and build capacity for action.
3D printing: cutting through the hype
Juniper Research : 03 July, 2014  (Special Report)
Juniper Research announces the launch of a new report and Excel dataset, which provides a guide to the development of the Consumer 3D Printing ecosystem.
Density functional theory shows Ti-V alloys’ superconductivity is inherent, not accidental
Springer Science+Business Media : 03 July, 2014  (Technical Article)
Research shows that all of the Ti-V alloys could display a relatively high superconducting transition temperature. It is deduced that spin fluctuations are reflected in the properties of the normal state of electrons. They therefore influence the superconductivity of the alloys in a similar way to that observed in high-temperature oxide and iron-based superconductors; as such, the influence of spin fluctuations on superconductivity is not necessarily confined to certain classes of exotic compounds, as previously thought.
Application integrates materials knowledge with PLM
Granta Design : 03 July, 2014  (New Product)
At the PTC Live Global event, Granta Design demonstrated a new materials data integration application for the PTC Windchill PLM system. This is the latest in the growing list of leading CAD, CAE, and PLM software supported by dedicated Granta MI:Materials Gateway applications.
