21 Current news of Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energierss
So far, it has only been possible to image magnetic domains in two dimensions. Now, for the first time, Scientists at Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) have managed to create three-dimensional images of these domains deep within magnetic materials. Although they exist in almost every magnetic ...
HZB researchers may have observed the fastest melting of all time
Scientists from Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) observed exotic be-haviour from beryllium oxide (BeO) when they bombarded it with high-speed heavy ions: After being shot in this way, the electrons in the BeO appeared “confused”, and seemed to completely forget the material properties of their ...
HZB researchers solve the case of lost current in organic solar cells
Scientists have been working on organic solar cells for about a decade. Their manufacture is environmentally friendly and they can be applied to all kinds of materials, such as plastic film, for instance. The trouble is, they only yield a fifth of the electrical energy that silicon solar ...
HZB researcher honoured with solar award for his successful research
Prof. Dr. Hans-Werner Schock, department head and spokesman for Solar Energy Research at Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB), received the prestigious “Becquerel Prize” at the 25th “European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition” in Valencia. The EU Commission honoured the HZB ...
Using “dark channel” fluorescence, scientists can explain how biochemical substances carry out their function
Spectroscopic techniques are among the most important methods by which scientists can look inside materials. They exploit the interaction of light waves with a given sample. Now, using X-ray absorption spectroscopy, researchers from Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie (HZB) ...
Novel storage materials of the future will be made out of magnetic films. Researchers at HZB are the first to find out just how fast magnetic particles can be controlled. Christian Stamm and his colleagues at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Mate-rialien und Energie (HZB) can look back on ...
Hidden Symmetry observed for the first Time in Solid State Matter
Researchers from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie (HZB), in cooperation with colleagues from Oxford and Bristol Universities, as well as the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, UK, have for the first time observed a nanoscale symmetry hidden in solid state matter. They ...
Phenomenon known from Particle Theory observed for the first time in Condensed Matter
The concept of confinement is one of the central ideas in modern physics. The most famous example is that of quarks which bind together to form protons and neutrons. Now Prof. Bella Lake from Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin together with an international team of scientists report for the first time ...
At the "First Joint BER II and BESSY II Users' Meeting" on November 12th / 13th the "Freundeskreis Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin e. V." bestowed the "Ernst-Eckhard-Koch-Prize" and the "Innovation-Award on Synchrotron Radiation" for 2009. Dr. Stephen Peter Berkebile from the ...
Superconductors are materials that conduct electricity with almost no resistance, and engineers are simply crazy about them. Physicists around the world are working hard to explain this physical phenomenon. Yet, to this day, nobody knows exactly why some materials suddenly become ...
