1,9 million EU grant for Mikhail Eremets from the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry


Dr. Mikhail Eremets from the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry has been awarded an Advanced Grant from the European Research Council end of October. The sum of € 1.9 million was granted for exploring conductive and metallic hydrogen. In his project, Eremets plans to study molecular hydrogen ...


Empa researchers clarify reaction pathway to fabricate graphene-like materials


Graphene is a promising material for tomorrow’s nanoelectronics devices. Precise and upscaleable methods to fabricate graphene and derived materials with desired electronic properties are however still searched after. To overcome the current limitations, Empa researchers have fabricated ...


Trapping charged particles with laser light

MPQ-scientists demonstrate the feasibility of optical trapping for ions, which may lead to a new kind of hybrid quantum systems.


In the past decades setups for trapping single particles have played a key role in high precision quantum measurements because they allow for an ultimate control of all important experimental parameters. However, up to now scientists had to choose between two alternative strategies: either to ...


Turbo test for chemical catalysts

Prof. Ferdi Schüth (MPI für Kohlenforschung, Mülheim), Dr. Dirk Demuth and Dr. Wolfram Stichert (hte AG, Heidelberg) have been nominated for the award “Deutscher Zukunftspreis“


Thanks to a process developed by Prof. Dr. Ferdi Schüth, Director at the Max-Planck-Institut für Kohlenforschung in Mülheim (Germany), and the scientists and technologists of hte Aktiengesellschaft in Heidelberg (Germany) headed by Dr. Dirk Demuth and Dr. Wolfram Stichert, the search for new and ...

The Amazon rainforest -- a cloud factory


The forest in the Amazon Basin produces its own rain. During the wet season, aerosol particles, which serve to condensate clouds and precipitation here, mainly consist of organic material. These aerosols are released by the rainforest itself. This has been demonstrated by scientists from the Max ...


Turning over a new leaf


Researchers have transformed the skeleton of a leaf into iron carbide. The new technique enables the conversion of metal carbides into intricate microstructures in just one step. As recently confirmed by a group of chemists from the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces, nature can ...

Hot Water in Cold Comets


Comets, also named “dirty snowballs”, are largely composed of water. An international research team around Andreas Wolf, of the Max-Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg, Germany, recently succeeded deciphering an important aspect of the way by which water molecules often form in ...


Prof. Abdel Salam Makhlouf wins Prize of Excellence and Innovation in Materials Science and their Applications, Egypt, 2010


A recipient of the Alexander von Humboldt Experienced Researchers Program, Prof. Dr. Abdel Salam Hamdy Makhlouf, has been awarded the Prize of Excellence and Innovation in Materials Science and their Applications, Egypt, 2010. The award recognizes his research achievements and strong ...


Observing Quantum Particles in Perfect Order

Scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics succeed in recording single-atom resolved images of a highly correlated quantum gas


Ultracold atoms in optical lattices have evolved in the last years into an interdisciplinary tool for many-body solid state and quantum physics. But so far only limited possibilities were available to manipulate and to image the quantum gas on a microscopic scale. For the first time a team around ...

Attosecond real-time Observation of a Quantum Hole


For the first time ever, physicists from the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (LAP) at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics have observed what occurs inside an atom from which a single electron has been ejected. An international team from the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics, led by ...
