Contactless high performance power transmission
Contactless high performance power transmission
Superconducting coils for contactless power transmission in the kilowatt range Such devices could be placed on a charging station whenever they are not in use. This would make it possible to effectively utilize even short idle times to recharge their batteries. However, the currently available transmission systems for high performance recharging in the kilowatt range and above are large and heavy, since they are based on copper coils.

Mystery of solar cycle illuminated
In the convection zone of the star, the plasma currents make a huge turnover that lasts about 22 years (mps) Solar activity fluctuates in a rhythm of about eleven years, which is reflected among other things in the frequency of sunspots. A complete magnetic period lasts 22 years. Scientists have long been puzzling over what causes this cycle.

From the Little Brother of Benzene to Deltic Liquid Crystals
From the Little Brother of Benzene to Deltic Liquid Crystals
Cyclopropenium cations are aromatic three-membered rings and belong to Hückel type aromatic systems. Thus, they are the smaller brothers of the well-known benzene. In contrast to benzene cyclopropenium cations were considered for a long time as curiosities without any practical relevance. However, in recent years their potential as organocatalysts has been recognized.
