Background: Indicating local spots of thermal load on large-scale components is challenging, because the area of interest may not be accessible by electronic sensors or the complete coverage of the area may require an excessive number of sensors. Solution of the Swiss school of technology: The hardware of interest can be covered with a new functional coating, which will indicate the thermal history. First, a layer of TiN (titanium nitride) is applied, then an ultrathin layer of TiAlN (titanium aluminium nitride).

Background: The oxygen isotopes O-17 and O-18 are extremely useful for tracing molecular processes in chemistry, agrochemistry, biology and pharmacy. The isotopes O-17 or O-18 are used to replace the common O-16 in a compound of interest. The O-17 and O-18 labelled compound can be traced by mass spectroscopy because O-17 and O-18 are both heavier than O-16. The O-17 compound can also be traced by NMR (nuclear magnetic resonance) spectroscopy as O-17 has a nuclear spin. Using oxygen isotopes, a pharmacist can label a drug and monitor its activity in a cell.

Plastic gears offer economic advantages, i.e design flexibility, reduced noise, ability to operate without lubrication and corrosion-resistance. Etc. In some cases they can be a better choice than metal gears. The research group on gear technology of a Swiss university of applied sciences carries out research, product and process development in the area of transmission systems and gearwheels made from steel and plastic in order to test the limitations of plastic gears relative to metal gears and improve quality, process productivity, and sustainability.

Requests
A DCCT is a high-precision transducer based on the zero-flux detection principle. The current to be measured (primary current) is passed through the centre of a toroidal core (transducer head). The output of a zero flux detector is used in a current control loop to generate a compensation current (secondary current) which is an accurate fraction of the primary current according to the primary-secondary turns ratio.

Diabetes mellitus is one of the major health concerns worldwide affecting 425 million people and its prevalence is expected to increase to 629 million in 2045. It is estimated that 12% of the global health expenditure is spent on diabetes (around $727 billion). One serious complication of diabetes mellitus is the diabetic foot ulcer (DFU). Impaired local blood circulation and the resulting low tissue oxygenation, nutrient supply and waste elimination is a major cause for compromised wound healing in diabetic patients and wounds often become chronic and non-healing.

An established research institute of a Swiss university of applied sciences has invented a new topology for highly efficient switched mode power converters with low electromagnetic interferences (EMI). Along with the right method of control, this topology allows to reduce the power losses by approximately 50% compared to conventional switched mode power converters, which allows very high energy savings. Thus, conversion efficiency of 99% or more can be achieved. Despite the superior performance, the topology is simple and easy to drive.
