New International Forum for Heavy Metal Research

01-Nov-2012

Research on radioactive heavy metals in environmental systems considers diverse tasks, e.g. restoration measures for contaminated industrial fallow grounds, the safe storage of chemical-toxic and radioactive waste, carbon dioxide sequestration to reduce green-house gas emissions as well as the ...

Solar power day and night

KIT controls fluctuation of renewable energies by using modern storage systems

14-Aug-2012

Energy storage systems are one of the key technologies for the energy turnaround. With their help, the fluctuating supply of electricity based on photovoltaics and wind power can be stored until the time of consumption. At Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), several pilot plants of solar ...

Video reveals wave character of particles

Wave properties of individual heavy molecules can also be observed experimentally

30-Mar-2012

Quantum theory describes the world of atoms very precisely. Still, it defies our macroscopic conception of everyday's world due to its many anti-intuitive predictions. The wave-particle dualism probably is the best known example and means that matter may spread and interfere like waves. Now, an ...

Chemical element 112 is named 'Copernicium'

The name proposed by GSI for the heaviest chemical element has been officially endorsed

26-Feb-2010

IUPAC accepted the name proposed by the international discovering team around Sigurd Hofmann at the GSI Helmholtzzentrum. The team had suggested "Cp" as the chemical symbol for the new element. However, since the chemical symbol "Cp" gave cause for concerns, as this abbreviation also has other ...

Smallest nanoantennas for high-speed data networks

23-Oct-2009

More than 120 years after the discovery of the electromagnetic character of radio waves by Heinrich Hertz, wireless data transmission dominates information technology. Higher and higher radio frequencies are applied to transmit more data within shorter periods of time. Some years ago, scientists ...

Scientific pathways into the nanoworld

EUMINAfab -- Europe's first virtual infrastructure facility in micro- and nanotechnologies is ready for use

03-Sep-2009

EUMINAfab offers open access to machines and know-how in micro- and nanotechnologies for users from science and industry. This European infrastructure facility coordinated by KIT is starting operation: Ten leading institutions from research and industry in eight EU member states make available a ...

Bioavailable contaminants come from the Exxon Valdez oil catastrophe

Researchers disprove theory that natural coal deposits are the source of environmental pollution

02-Sep-2009

Contaminants from natural coal deposits in the Gulf of Alaska are not easily bioavailable, unlike the crude oil from the Exxon Valdez tanker catastrophe. This clearly disproves the theory that natural coal deposits were the cause of observed environmental damage. PAH pollutants were blamed for ...

'Green' energy from algae

10-Aug-2009

In view of the shortage of petrochemical resources and climate change, development of CO2-neutral sustainable fuels is one of the most urgent challenges of our times. Energy plants like rape or oil palm are being discussed fervently, as they may also be used for food production. Hence, ...
