Advanced milling technique produces slow-release soil nutrient crystals
A purely mechanical method can produce a novel, more sustainable fertiliser in a less polluting way. That is the result of a method optimised at DESY's light source PETRA III. An international team used PETRA III to optimise the production method that is an adaptation of an ancient technique: by ...
Live view into methanol synthesis
An international research team led by researchers of Stockholm University has for the first time been able to study the surface of a copper-zinc catalyst when carbon dioxide is reduced to methanol. The results – obtained at DESY´s brilliant light source PETRAIII – are published in the scientific ...
Important step for filming chemical reactions
Exploding a photo subject in order to take its picture? An international research team at the world's largest X-ray laser, the European XFEL, used this “extreme” method to take pictures of complex molecules. With the ultra-bright X-ray flashes generated by the facility, the scientists were able ...
Investigating the harsh environment of interstellar space in a FLASH
Using DESY's free-electron laser FLASH, scientists have recreated some of the harsh environment of interstellar space in the lab and analysed the reaction of astrochemical molecules to these conditions. The results show a comprehensive picture of the dynamics of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons ...
Innovative ideas for the energy carrier of the future
An innovative approach could turn nanoparticles into simple reservoirs for storing hydrogen. The highly volatile gas is considered a promising energy carrier for the future, which could provide climate-friendly fuels for airplanes, ships and lorries, for example, as well as allowing ...
Organic radicals enable new applications and might become a sustainable replacement for rare earths
Magnets from organic materials can enable new applications and offer a sustainable alternative to metal magnets containing rare earths. With a worldwide unique experimental setup at DESY's X-ray source PETRA III, scientists from Tübingen, Hamburg, Berlin, Nebraska und Italy have demonstrated ...
Analysis points the way to more durable iridium electrodes
Green hydrogen is expected to play a central role in the energy industry of the future: Among other things, it can replace oil and gas as energy carriers and also enable emission-free production of steel and cement. For an efficient hydrogen economy, however, the production of the ...
X-rays reveal compositional changes on active surface under reaction conditions
A DESY-led research team has been using high-intensity X-rays to observe a single catalyst nanoparticle at work. The experiment has revealed for the first time how the chemical composition of the surface of an individual nanoparticle changes under reaction conditions, making it more active. The ...
Analysis helps to understand fragmentation of catalyst particles in ethylene polymerisation
An X-ray study at DESY is pointing the way towards a better understanding of plastics production. A team led by Utrecht University investigated so-called Ziegler-type catalysts, the workhorses in the world's polyethylene and polypropylene production, at DESY's X-ray source PETRA III. As the ...
The future is moving in: Start-up Labs Bahrenfeld, a project jointly managed by DESY, the University of Hamburg and the City of Hamburg, is the new place for science entrepreneurship on DESY’s research campus. The innovation centre for deep-tech start-ups will also enhance the profile of the ...
