Scientists at the Fraunhofer FEP have investigated new approaches for depositing low-defect insulating layers, part of the joint project “NaFuSS“ (German Federal Ministry of Education and Research/BMBF promotional reference number 13N13171). The aim is to increase the reliability and durability of pressure sensors for hydrogen technology, an area that is becoming increasingly important.
Electric autmobiles have experienced a real boom in recent years. Due to an increasing change in thinking favoring environmentally friendlier behavior in everyday life, more and more people are buying electric cars or using car-sharing services. Those also are increasingly committed to fleets of electric cars. But electric cars still have a major shortcoming. Due to their long charging times, they are not a viable alternative yet for drivers who use their vehicles frequently, for people needing a lot of flexibility such as on-call services, for local public transport, and trucks.
