Researchers patent a natural ventilation system of roofs that prevents heat build-up‬

Researchers at the Universitat Jaume I of Castellón have developed a modular ventilation system for pitched roofs that solves the problem of heat accumulation by solar radiation under the roofs without the need for refrigeration. ‪The patented system by the UJI is a passive and energy efficient solution for thermal conditioning of buildings. The module can be applied to restoration and rehabilitation of roofs, especially to those of historical value, and to new premises.

Lofar’s record-sharp image gives astronomers a new view of galaxy M82

An international team of astronomers led from Chalmers University of Technology has used the giant radio telescope Lofar to create the sharpest astronomical image ever taken at very long radio wavelengths. Made by observing simultaneously from four countries, including Sweden, the image shows the glowing centre of the galaxy Messier 82 – and many bright remnants of supernova explosions.

LG Chem ups bending radius in OLED lighting milestone

South Korea-based LG Chem continues to work on the potential of OLED technology. Tom Dawson, editor in chief of AndroidHeadlines, said, “LG has quickly become a name when it comes to flexible OLED displays and if there’s one company that can find a solution to use this sort of technology in everyday life, then it’s LG.” He said, “LG Chem has taken flexible OLED to a whole new level with new displays that can still be lit and be flexed in ways we never thought possible.” The company recently announced two milestones in their work on OLED lighting. First, they announced the completion of the R&D phase for a new plastic-based OLED light panel; second, they announced the start of manufacturing of a 320 x 320 mm OLED light panel. They said it is the world’s largest available in the market.
