A true paradigm shift, systems being considered for acquisition will be designed, developed and manufactured on a digital foundation, just like the Boeing eT-7A Red Hawk advanced trainer. The new process is part of the Department’s digital eSeries approach.

Ultrathin layers of tungsten diselenide have potential applications in opto-electronics and quantum technologies. LMU researchers have now explored how this material interacts with light in the presence of strong magnetic fields.


Owing to their astonishing and versatile properties, atomically thin monolayer and bilayer forms of semiconducting transition metal dichalcogenides have aroused great interest in recent years. Most attention has so far been paid to the optical properties of these materials, such as molybdenum sulfide (MoS) and tungsten diselenide (WSe2). These compounds show great promise as nanoscale elements for applications in opto-electronic and quantum technologies.

In a new study, LMU physicists led by Alexander Högele have now developed a theoretical model, which describes the effects of magnetic fields on the behavior of excitons in two-dimensional ultrathin transition metal dichalcogenides. Excitons are strongly bound quasiparticles, composed of an electron in the conduction band and

KULR Technology Group to Participate in United Nations Working Group on Lithium Battery Classification

Company to apply its experience and expertise on UN Working Group’s new lithium battery classification system

SAN DIEGO, Aug. 31, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — KULR Technology Group, Inc. (OTCQB: KULR) (the “Company” or “KULR”) today announces that it will participate in meetings of the United Nations Transport of Dangerous Goods Sub-Committee Informal Working Group to establish test methods and criteria by which lithium batteries can be more effectively regulated based on their inherent hazards. The event will take place in Brussels, Belgium, and virtually online on August 31- September 2, 2020.

Regulatory agencies and international organizations are increasingly concerned with the prevention of battery fires in transport, such as those that have sporadically occurred aboard aircrafts and trucks. The UN Working Group is considering regulations and a new classification system of lithium batteries based on risk factors such as chemistry, form factor, quantities of flame, heat and gas
