IBU-tec AG of Weimar and its cooperating partner have succeeded for the first time in working nanoscale zinc oxide into a concentrated additive. One of the preconditions is the special properties of ZincOx in which the ZnO particles are bound to each other only by soft agglomeration and exhibit no hard aggregates. The special feature of the nanoscale powder results from using patented pulsation reactor technology which allows the processing temperature to be set below the specific sinter temperature of the material being processed. The melt phase can not be formed in the particles during a thermal production process, thus eliminating the cause of undesirable hard aggregates and sinter necks that result when other processes are used. The successful inclusion of ZincOx in an additive concentrate creates an enormous potential market in the field of transparent plastics, especially where long-term UV protection is required for esthetic or functional reasons.

While object-oriented programming languages are good at modelling real-world concepts and benefit from rich libraries and developer tools, logic programming languages are well suited for declaratively solving computational problems that require knowledge reasoning. Non-trivial declarative applications could take advantage of the modelling features of object-oriented programming and of the rich software ecosystems surrounding them. Linguistic symbiosis is a common approach to enable complementary use of languages of different paradigms. However, the problem of concepts leaking from one paradigm to another often hinders the applicability of such approaches. This issue has mainly been reported for object-oriented languages participating in a symbiotic relation with a logic language. To address this issue, we present LogicObjects, a linguistic symbiosis framework for transparently and (semi-) automatically enabling logic programming in Java, that aims to solve most of the problems of paradigm leaking reported in other works. © 2013 Springer-Verlag.

Low cost, lightweight, multifunctional “smart materials” can now be micro-engineered so as to be inherently Rad-Hard, thereby eliminating the need for secondary, “bolt-on” attachment schemes. Furthermore, the same micro-engineering techniques provide a dual-use capability by also providing a material with excellent stiffness; again without incurring cost or weight penalties. These micro-engineered “smart materials” are also environmentally safe and provide opportunity for rapid change-out in existing space systems. This is an extremely important factor in the current climate of reduced spending and urgency for programs to remain fixed on current parts and suppliers. Cost reductions can allow for the investigation new materials and the ability to increase overall system performance

The number of approaches existing to enable a smooth interaction between Java and Prolog programs testifies the growing interest in solutions that combine the strengths of both languages. Most of these approaches provide limited support to allow programmers to customise how Prolog artefacts should be reified in the Java world, or how to reason about Java objects on the Prolog side. This is an error-prone task since often a considerable amount of mappings must be developed and organised. Furthermore, appropriate mappings may depend on the particular context in which a conversion is accomplished. Although some libraries alleviate this problem by providing higher-level abstractions to deal with the complexity of custom conversions between artefacts of the two languages, such libraries are difficult to implement and evolve, because of a lack of appropriate underlying building blocks for encapsulating, categorising and applying Java-Prolog conversion routines. We therefore introduce a new library, JPC, serving as a development tool for both programmers willing to categorise context-dependent conversion constructs in their Java-Prolog systems, and for architects implementing frameworks providing higher-level abstractions for better interoperability between these two languages. © 2015 Elsevier B.V.
