Towards mimicking metalloenzymes


Scientists in Germany and the US generate highly oxidised diiron complexes that further our understanding on metalloenzymes in nature. Oxidised diiron species are used in nature in the active sites of several metalloenzymes, such as methane monooxygenase and ribonucleotide reductase. Methane ...

A crystal clear view of chalk formation


It has a beautiful, but also an unpleasant side: crystallization determines the shape of precious stones, but also causes the lime scale in washing machines. How this comes about, has been known for a long time - or has it? Scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces are now ...


The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2007

Modern surface chemistry - fuel cells, artificial fertilizers and clean exhaust


The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has decided to award the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for 2007 to Gerhard Ertl ,Fritz-Haber-Institut der Max-Planck-Gesellschaft, Berlin, Germany "for his studies of chemical processes on solid surfaces". The Nobel Prize in Chemistry for 2007 is awarded for ...

IPP technology chosen for ITER


A new type of high-frequency ion source developed at Max Planck Institute of Plasma Physics (IPP) in Garching near Munich has been chosen to heat the plasma of the ITER fusion test device. This was now decided, after a unanimous recommendation was made by the international body of experts ...


Max Planck Innovation Concludes Licensing Agreement for Technology Providing Unlimited Resolution in Microscopy

Overcoming Abbe's law in light microscopy


Max Planck Innovation GmbH, the technology transfer agency of the Max Planck Society, has signed a co-exclusive license agreement with Leica Microsystems and Carl Zeiss MicroImaging GmbH for the RESOLFT (reversible saturable optical fluorescent transitions) technology, a method providing ...


Molecular Rendezvous Caught on Camera

Scientists watch on the atomic level how individual molecules recognize each other


The body is an almost perfect machine. For it to function properly, each individual component, that is each molecule, must reliably fulfill its specific function. Each molecule must thus "recognize" other molecules and work with them. A team of researchers from the Max Planck Institute for Solid ...


To the Edge of Melting


Picking a relatively simple system, an international team of scientists at Stanford Linear Accelerator Center SLAC (Stanford, USA), including two members of Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching), used advanced tools to see the very first instants of change in a solid brought to the ...


Long-lived magnetic fluctuations in a crystal

German scientists measured for the first time long-lived coordinated magnetic fluctuations in a magnetic material using a new neutron beam technique


One of the most familiar magnetic materials is magnetized iron. Much of the observed behaviour of iron and related magnetic materials can be understood using existing theoretical results. However, due to limitations of the experimental techniques that were previously available, important ...


Oscillating Pattern in Nanoparticle Crystallisation

Max Planck researchers in Potsdam demonstrate an oscillating pattern in nanoparticle crystallisation and self-organisation


In order to survive, biological systems need to form patterns and organise themselves. Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Colloids and Interfaces in Potsdam, Germany, have now combined self-organisation with chemical pattern formation. Scientists are especially interested in oscillating ...


Living metals: Microscopic Structure of Crystalline Material Fluctuates


Using Synchrotron x-ray microbeams, a research team from the Max Planck Institute for Metals Research in Stuttgart and the ESRF has been able to observe for the first time that the microscopic structure of a crystalline material fluctuates in time. The results are just shed in Science Express ...
