Team tracks real-time molecular motions

Important new insights into a key process for the development of more efficient solar cells

09-Jul-2021

The efficiency of solar cells can be significantly increased with a certain physical effect. A research team has now observed in detail for the first time how molecular movements influence this effect. Researchers from the Fritz Haber Institute (FHI) in Berlin, the Max Planck Institute for the ...

Toward new solar cells with active learning

To deal with the myriad of possibilities for candidate molecules, the machine decides for itself which data it needs

27-Apr-2021

Scientists from the Theory Department of the Fritz-Haber Institute in Berlin and Technical University of Munich use machine learning to discover suitable molecular materials. To deal with the myriad of possibilities for candidate molecules, the machine decides for itself which data it needs. How ...

The light side of the Force: Creating a metal with laser light

The conversion to a metal only takes 20 femtoseconds

16-Feb-2021

A group of researchers from the Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society and the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin have found out that semiconductors can be converted to metals and back more easily and more quickly than previously thought. This discovery may increase the processing speed and ...

A 40-year-old catalyst unveils its secrets

Findings will help catalyst research take an important step forward

30-Oct-2020

“Titanium silicalite-1” (TS-1) is not a new catalyst: It has been almost 40 years since its development and the discovery of its ability to convert propylene into propylene oxide, an important basic chemical in the chemical industry. Now, by combining various methods, a team of scientists from ...

'Resonance' raman spectroscopy with 1-nm resolution

06-Sep-2019

Tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy resolved "resonance" Raman scattering with 1-nm resolution in ultrathin zinc oxide films epitaxially grown on a single-crystal silver surface. Tip-enhanced "resonance" Raman scattering can be used to investigate a specific chemical structure at nanoscale and at the ...

Scientists demonstrate the wavelike nature of van der Waals Forces

14-Mar-2016

Like the gravitational forces that are responsible for the attraction between the Earth and the moon as well as the dynamics of the entire solar system, there exist attractive forces between objects at the nanoscale. These are the so-called van der Waals forces, which are ubiquitous in nature and ...

X-ray laser reveals chemical reaction

18-Mar-2013

What happens when a chemical bond is broken? That question was recently answered with the help of a so-called free electron x-ray laser, which makes it possible to follow in real time how bindings in a molecule are changed and broken. The study, published in Science, found, among other things, ...

Cheap and Cheerful: Iron to Replace Palladium

Scientists Develop Alternative Catalyst for Polyethylene Production

19-Jun-2012

Precious metals are expensive and in demand, not just for jewellery or as a financial investment, but also in industry. Here, valuable metals are used, among other things, as catalysts in chemical reactions. For example, palladium is crucial in a decisive step in the production of polyethylene, ...
