Smallest lattice structure worldwide

04-Feb-2016

KIT scientists now present the smallest lattice structure made by man. Its struts and braces are made of glassy carbon and are less than 1 µm long and 200 nm in diameter. They are smaller than comparable metamaterials by a factor of 5. The small dimension results in so far unreached ratios of ...

How copper makes organic light-emitting diodes more efficient

Researchers measure intersystem crossing directly in a thermally activated delayed fluorescence copper complex

06-Jan-2016

Use of copper as a fluorescent material allows for the manufacture of inexpensive and environmentally compatible organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs). Thermally activated delayed fuorescence (TADF) ensures high light yield. Scientists of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), CYNORA, and the ...

Hardened steels for more efficient engines

24-Nov-2015

Combustion engines still have much potential to save energy and reduce emissions. The present trend is to use smaller engines of the same or even increased power. Engines with a reduced cylinder capacity consume less fuel due to their smaller weight, smaller friction, and smaller amount of ...

Crack it! Energy from a fossil fuel without carbon dioxide

Technology to produce hydrogen from methane without carbon dioxide emissions

23-Nov-2015

The production of energy from natural gas without generating carbon dioxide emissions could fast become a reality, thanks to a novel technology developed by researchers of the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (IASS) in Potsdam and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). In a ...

Volcanic eruptions slow down climate change

15-Jul-2015

Although global concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere has continuously increased over the past decade, the mean global surface temperature has not followed the same path. A team of international reseachers, KIT scientists among them, have now found an explanation for this slowing ...

First Solar Cell Made of Highly Ordered Molecular Frameworks

New Material Based on Metal-organic Frameworks (MOFs) Is Suited for Photovoltaics

22-Jun-2015

Researchers at KIT have developed a material suited for photo-voltaics. For the first time, a functioning organic solar cell con-sisting of a single component has been produced on the basis of metal-organic framework compounds (MOFs). The material is highly elastic and might also be used for the ...

Novel superconducting undulator provides first X-ray light at ANKA

Successful installation and testing of high-performance superconducting undulator SCU15

12-May-2015

Synchrotron radiation facilities provide insights into the world of very small structures like microbes, viruses or nanomaterials and rely on dedicated magnet technology, which is optimized to produce highest intensity beams. The ANKA synchrotron radiation facility at KIT and Babcock Noell GmbH ...

Free Pores for Molecule Transport

Researchers Identify Cause of Surface Barriers of Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs)

05-Aug-2014

Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) can take up gases similar to a sponge that soaks up liquids. Hence, these highly porous materials are suited for storing hydrogen or greenhouse gases. However, loading of many MOFs is inhibited by barriers. Scien-tists of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) now ...

New self-healing plastics developed

15-Apr-2014

Scratches in the car finish or cracks in polymer material: Self-healing materials can repair themselves by restoring their initial molecular structure after the damage. Scientists of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and Evonik Industries have developed a chemical crosslinking reaction that ...

Microparticles show molecules their way

25-Feb-2014

A team of researchers of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and the University of Michigan/USA has produced novel microparticles, whose surface consists of three chemically different segments. These segments can be provided with different (bio-) molecules. Thanks to the specific spatial ...
