"Really to "see" electrons flowing through a thin piece of metal like water through a pipe is very exciting"
Electrons flow through most materials more like a gas than a fluid, meaning they don’t interact much with one another. It was long hypothesized that electrons could flow like a fluid, but only recent advances in materials and measurement techniques allowed these effects to be observed in 2D ...
“These twisted materials are fascinating as they can be used to engineer novel electronic properties with unprecedented flexibility“
A team of researchers from Germany, China and the United States has discovered that two twisted layers of MoS₂ can be used to control kinetic energy scales in solids. In addition to using the twist angle to control the material’s electronic properties, the researchers have also now demonstrated ...
Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) in Hamburg and RWTH Aachen University have suggested a surprising connection between the nematic behavior of a superconductor in a magnetic field — a state that resembles liquid crystals used in LCDs — and its ...
With smart materials toward more sustainable chemistry
Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces have developed a sustainable and "smart photocatalyst". The special feature: as a so-called smart material, it can distinguish between the colors of light (blue, red and green) and, in response, enables a specific chemical ...
Dr. Yafang Cheng has been selected as one of the 10 winners of the Falling Walls Science Breakthroughs of the Year 2021 in the category Physical Sciences for “Breaking the Wall to understanding COVID-19 transmission through aerosols”. “Top-class researchers globally are pushing the boundaries to ...
Scientists sucessfully decoded the structure of the enzyme responsible for ethane fixation
Hot vents in the deep sea are home to microbes that feed on ethane. They were discovered recently from scientists of the Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology. Now the researchers from Bremen succeeded in finding an important component in the microbial conversion of the gas. They were able ...
The spatially resolved determination of which of the two enantiomorphic structural variants - the left-handed or the right-handed - of a chiral phase is present in a polycrystalline material is the focus of a publication in Science Advances. With the EBSD (electron backscatter diffraction) -based ...
New and environmentally friendly method for synthesizing materials
In the journal Nature Communications, an interdisciplinary team from the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces presents for the first time a laser-driven technology that enables them to create nanoparticles such as copper, cobalt and nickel oxides. At the usual printing speed, ...
Chemical isomerism in Nature’s water splitting catalyst may explain the high efficiency of the photosynthetic reaction
Green hydrogen is often said to be “the petroleum of tomorrow”. For a climate-neutral energy supply in the future, we must turn away from carbon-based sources and harness solar fuels. The road ahead is long and requires, among other things, a precise knowledge of the functional principles of ...
Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) in Hamburg and the Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) in South Korea have found that the existing method to calculate a particular insulating state produces errors and suggest a new ...
