SGLPH: An Initiative to Make the World a Better Place to Live In (www.sglph.org)
Students for Global Love Peace and Harmony (SGLPH) has been developed to build a platform for the youth, the future leaders of the world, to express their opinions and views about world affairs, connect with other students and youth across the globe to promote a better understanding of various cultures and become messengers of love, peace, and harmony around the world. If you also want to organize, share and connect with youth over the world through campaigns, organized activities, messages, blogs, creative write-ups, artwork, scientific innovations, and much more, then enroll at www.sglph.org/enroll. Let's make this initiative successful.

TIET Establishes Training Partner Network in Emerging Technologies

TIET establishes a Training Partner Network in India, a model training program in Emerging Technologies, under the brand name IET (Institute of Emerging Technologies). It is an initiative of Prof. Sham Tickoo, Purdue University Northwest and CADCIM Technologies, USA. The training centers will retain their name and identity, but will become Training Partners of IET. The IET organization will develop the best learning and teaching resources, provide discounted software, and represent the network to negotiate deals with government and private organizations in India and overseas.

Benefits of Joining IET Training Partner Network
  • Access to the database of partners with their profile and specialties
  • Ease of doing business with any of the partners in the network
  • Access to the best negotiated prices for various Software / Hardware from different suppliers
  • Promotion of individual products through IET network
  • Open Forum to discuss the problems/challenges faced by the network partners
  • Avail Books/Workbooks /eBook from CADCIM/TIET on huge discounted rates

University Of Oxford Researchers Develop Artificial Retina
In buses, you might have seen an LED button used to open the door quickly. In these buttons, LEDs light up in a circle around the corresponding hand symbol, but at night the diodes can be so bright that it can be difficult to see, especially for older people. Bus manufacturer EvoBus of Mannheim is therefore looking for ways to produce a new kind of button that does not dazzle and yet remains clearly visible in any light conditions.

A team under Dr. Hans Martin Sauer of the Institute of Printing Science and Technology (IDD) at the TU Darmstadt, which is run by Professor Edgar DÖrsam is researching an innovative process for printing luminescent materials in the project "Electroluminescence display in capacitive sensor technology (ELSE)". The advantage of these materials is that once voltage is applied, they light up gently by themselves—making LEDs superfluous. What is required is a precise and efficient printing process that allows us to produce any motifs using the minimum amount of materials. The research team opted for the pad printing process. It is used for products with uneven surfaces, such as model railways and PC keyboards. An elastic pad made of silicone rubber takes up the colour from a print form and transfers it to the object. The pad printing process is extremely flexible because no one has ever combined it with luminescent material. These materials are usually applied by screen printing because they are quite coarse grained - seen under a microscope, they look like a cinder track.

3-D Printing in Water Using Novel Hybrid Nanoparticles
3-D printing has become an important tool for fabricating different organic based materials for a variety of industries. However, printing structures in water has always been challenging due to lack of water soluble molecules known as photoinitiators—the molecules that induce chemical reactions necessary to form solid printed material by light. Now, Researchers at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem's Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology have developed a new type of photoinitiator for three-dimensional (3-D) printing in water. These novel nanoparticles could allow for the creation of bio-friendly 3-D printed structures, further the development of biomedical accessories and drive progress in traditional industries such as plastics.

Writing in Nano Letters, Prof. Uri Banin and Prof. Shlomo Magdassi at the Hebrew University's Institute of Chemistry describe an efficient means of 3-D printing in water using semiconductor-metal hybrid nanoparticles (HNPs) as the photoinitiators. 3-D printing in water opens exciting opportunities in the biomedical arena for tailored fabrication of medical devices and for printing scaffolds for tissue engineering. For example, the researchers envision personalized fabrication of joint replacements, bone plates, heart valves, artificial tendons and ligaments, and other artificial organ replacements. 3-D printing in water also offers an environmentally friendly approach to additive manufacturing, which could replace the current technology of printing in organic based inks of materials required to create the final product. The whole process can also be used in advanced polymerization modalities, such as two photon printers, which allows it to produce high resolution features.
