New ceramics for domestic and cryogenic magnetic refrigeration

A continuously growing energy demand worldwide intensifies the need for development of new, high-performance energy conversion and storage technologies. A large part of energy consumption is due to cooling in the industrial sectors such as food conservation as well as air-conditioning for housing, buildings and vehicles. Hence, refrigeration appears as a major concern for the future involving both energy consumption and impact on the environment. To date, the energy for refrigeration comes primarily from fossil fuels which produce CO2, and it uses HFCs (hydrofluorocarbon type) gases for the classical gas-compression cycle. Both these gases pollute the environment. From this point of view, cooling based on using magnetocaloric ceramic oxides as the refrigerant material appears as a promising alternative. Full text.

Grapheal : Therapeutics and diagnostics of chronic wounds

Grapheal is a spin-off project of the Institut NEEL. This startup company, currently in the creation phase, aims to develop innovative solutions for treating people with chronic wounds. Typically, chronic wounds are deep skin injuries that do not heal after 4-6 weeks. Large populations are at risk, including diabetics (whose numbers are rapidly rising around the world) as well as the elderly. The recent epidemic of chronic wounds is a major concern, as they are the leading source of necrosis, which can unfortunately lead to amputations. Such wounds are the cause of more than half a million amputations each year worldwide. Full text.
