X-rays reveal catalytic converter interactions

X-rays reveal catalytic converter interactions
How do catalytic converters work? Scientists of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) studied the reactions under close-to-reality conditions: With the help of X-rays, they observed the interactions of the nitrogen monoxide pollutant molecule and of the reduction agent ammonia with iron and copper centers, i.e. transition metal ions in Fe-ZSM-5 and Cu-SSZ-13, where the reaction takes place.

Digital bus architecture reduces audio system costs

Digital bus architecture reduces audio system costs
Car manufacturers strive to make future generations of vehicles safer, smarter and more fuel efficient than their predecessors. To accomplish this, electronics systems continue to increase in number and complexity as more ECUs (Electronic Control Units) are deployed in the vehicle – enabling features such as active noise cancellation, internet connectivity and in-car communications.
