After numerous attempts and experiments, it has finally been possible to integrate a luminous fibre into a fabric, giving its own brilliance. Luminex is a new fabric that can emit its own light. Itís the result of a close collaboration between a highly technological electronics company like CAEN spa, which is in fact the worldís leading company in the planning and production of electronic equipment for use in Nuclear physics experiments, and two companies operating in textiles sector FIT spa in Prato and the Swiss company STABIO sa.

Modern protective clothing needs to meet a variety of multifunctional requirements and offer a very high level of protection as well as remarkable comfort and wearability, influencing the wearerís physical performance which puts it far beyond usual definitions of comfort. The demand for multifunctional properties makes it necessary to develop and improve fibre and textile materials and structures (suits, uniforms, Ö). Introduction of nanotechnology and the use of a variety of (wearable) sensors / embedded electronics and processors turn traditional protection into a value added market posing ever increasing challenges to researchers and engineers at universities, institutes and industry. Design and manufacturing of sophisticated interactive protective textiles and clothing, meeting very tight specifications, has to be done taking into account cost-effectiveness, environmental issues and even the need to be applied to military as well as civil purposes.
Riso National Laboratory (Riso National Laboratory ) sustainable energy, research, institute, nuclear technologies, laboratory, scientific approach, solar cells, print
Riso carries out research on future generations of photovoltaic technologies (PV) and in particular polymer solar cells. In addition, we look into other means of utilizing sunlight; for instance to reduce carbon dioxide to synthetic fuels (solar fuels). Solar energy is a focus point in many strategies for a sustainable energy supply. The European Commissionís Strategic Energy Plan (SET-plan) envisages a Solar Europe Initiative, where photovoltaics and concentrated solar power (CSP) supply as much power as wind mills in the future.
