How fine bubbles lead to more efficient catalysts

Newly discovered effect boosts productivity of green hydrogen transport processes


Catalysts are of utmost relevance for the production of chemicals and energy storage with hydrogen. Researchers at the Helmholtz Institute Erlangen-Nürnberg for Renewable Energy (HI ERN) and Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) have now discovered that the formation of bubbles ...

New Insights into the Interaction of Topological Insulators


Tungsten di-telluride (WTe2) has recently proven to be a promising material for the realization of topological states. These are regarded as the key to novel "spintronic" devices and quantum computers of the future due to their unique electronic properties. Physicists at Forschungszentrum Jülich ...

Perovskite solar cell with ultra-long stability

Success through high throughput


Perovskites are the great hope for further increasing the efficiency of solar modules in the future. Until now, their short service life has been considered the biggest hurdle to their practical use, but this could soon change. In the current issue of the journal Nature Energy, researchers from ...

New State of Matter: Crystalline and Flowing at the Same Time

Particles with pompom-like structure


The predictions of researchers that certain particles of matter with sufficiently high density would form a new state - crystalline and flowing at the same time - could be confirmed in the laboratory. More than 20 years ago, researchers predicted that with sufficiently high density certain ...

Nano Dominoes with Molecules

Important step towards opening up the third dimension for molecular fabrication


Three years ago, a group of physicists from Jülich successfully manipulated a single flat molecule into an upright, standing position. Their findings were published at the time in Nature. After months of experiments, they have now managed to knock the molecule back down again. The insights gained ...

Braids of Nanovortices Discovered

“These types of structures inside magnetic solids suggest unique electrical and magnetic properties"


A team of scientists from Germany, Sweden and China has discovered a new physical phenomenon: complex braided structures made of tiny magnetic vortices known as skyrmions. Skyrmions were first detected experimentally a little over a decade ago and have since been the subject of numerous studies, ...


image description
A unique scanning tunnelling microscope with magnetic cooling to study quantum effects developed

"Adiabatic cooling is a real quantum leap for scanning tunneling microscopy"


Scanning tunnelling microscopes capture images of materials with atomic precision and can be used to manipulate individual molecules or atoms. Researchers have been using the instruments for many years to explore the world of nanoscopic phenomena. A new approach by physicists at Forschungszentrum ...
