The force of the vacuum

Scientists’ theory of polaritonically amplified electron lattice interaction reveals new material design possibilities

07-Dec-2018

Scientists from the Theory Department of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science (CFEL) in Hamburg have shown through theoretical calculations and computer simulations that the force between electrons and lattice ...

Goodbye, silicon?

On the way to new electronic materials with metal-organic networks

18-Oct-2018

Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) in Mainz (Germany) together with scientists from Dresden, Leipzig, Sofia (Bulgaria) and Madrid (Spain) have now developed and characterized a novel, metal-organic material which displays electrical properties mimicking those of ...

A chemical criterion for rating movies

The isoprene concentration in the air is an objective indicator for setting the age rating of films

15-Oct-2018

A measurable criterion now exists for determining the age rating of films. A group of scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry in Mainz has found that the concentration of isoprene in cinema air correlates with the cinema industry‘s voluntary classification of films. Evidently, the ...

Electrons go with the flow

12-Oct-2018

You turn on a switch and the light switches on because electricity "flows". The usual perception is that this is like opening a faucet and the water starts to flow. But this analogy is misleading. The flow of water is determined by the theory of hydrodynamics, where the behavior of the fluid ...

Researchers develop method to structure surfaces using visible light

08-Oct-2018

The functionalization of surfaces with different physical or chemical properties is a key challenge for many applications. For example, the defined structuring of a surface with hydrophobic and hydrophilic areas can be used for the separation of emulsions, like water and oil. However, the ...

Towards a new design paradigm for high-performance catalysts

05-Oct-2018

Mark Greiner and Travis Jones from the Max-Planck Institute for Chemical Energy Conversion and the Fritz-Haber Institute, along with a team of international researchers, have recently made a discovery that could transform the way chemicals are synthesized. The chemical industry relies on ...

Multiyear Tracking of Atmospheric Radicals

New method derive both short-lived atmospheric hydroxyl and chlorine radical concentrations over several years

13-Sep-2018

Hydroxyl radicals (OH) keep our atmosphere clean. They react away toxic gases such as carbon monoxide (CO), and slow climate warming by removing greenhouse gases like methane (CH4). In some parts of the atmosphere, chlorine radicals (Cl) can also help this purification process, for example in the ...

Novel 3D printed polymer lenses for X-ray microscopes: highly efficient and low cost

07-Sep-2018

Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Stuttgart invented a new and cost-effective method for making X-ray lenses with nanometer-sized features and excellent focusing capabilities. By using an advanced 3D printing technique, a single lens can be manufactured under a ...

A boost for biofuel cells

03-Sep-2018

In chemistry, a reaction is spontaneous when it does not need the addition of an external energy input. How much energy is released in a reaction is dictated by the laws of thermodynamics. In the case of the spontaneous reactions that occur in the human body this is often not enough to power ...

Success for the particle accelerators of the future

Electrons ride plasma wave

31-Aug-2018

There is a good chance that soon a new door will open to physicists, offering them new insights into the mysteries of the universe. The international AWAKE collaboration has made a breakthrough in its efforts to build a new type of particle accelerator. The experiment, in which electrons surf on ...
