Mo, 22. June 2020 Long-lasting products are sustainable. This applies to smartphones in the same way as to engine control units or battery cells for electric mobility. For that reason, electric and electronic components must be protected from intruding moisture, so that they endure for the complete service life. Only when plastics tightly seal, e.g. the metal electrodes of a pacemaker, thee sensitive inner electronics are protected from potential damages caused by penetrating bodily fluids. A new measuring device allows researchers at Aalen University to detect the smallest leakages in the interface of adhesively bonded plastic-metal joints and thus help to improve the seal tightness of such interfaces.

Tu, 21. April 2020 Where normally hundreds of new students would be informed about the first steps of their studies, is now a gaping void. Because of that, Aalen University’s YouTube channel keeps getting „fuller”. Instead of on campus, the approx. 650 new students were greeted by University President Prof. Dr. Gerhard Schneider via livestream. “This semester will be an adventure for all of us”, he explains, “but together, we can do this”.
