Breakthrough in material science: analysing frozen water atom by atom
How to analyse ice down to its atomic scale? And how to analyse objects embedded in ice without melting it? An international team of material scientists mainly from the Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung (MPIE) found a way to analyse micron-thick layers of ice by atom probe tomography (APT) ...
Scientists analyse the deformation behaviour of silicon in nano/micro devices
Mobile phones, data storage for laptops, solar cells, power electronics for renewable energy, or sensors in cars are applications where silicon is the first-choice material despite that its mechanical behaviour at elevated temperature is not yet fully understood. To design efficient and reliable ...
Aniruddha Dutta, doctoral student at the Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung, wins championship in Vienna
Aniruddha Dutta, doctoral student at the Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung (MPIE) in Düsseldorf and acting German science slam champion 2018/19, has won the European Science Slam Championship 2019/20 against his competitors from Austria, Switzerland, Sweden, Slovakia, Slovenia, the Czech ...
“The theoretical possibilities seem almost too good to be true,” says researcher Tobias Löffler. Numerous chemical reactions relevant for the energy revolution are highly complex and result in considerable energy losses. This is the reason why energy conversion and storage systems or fuel cells ...
Severe plastic deformation and powder processing techniques are used to produce nanostructured materials with tailor-made compositions and without the effort of precasting. They allow the production of novel metallic nanocrystalline materials by mechanically alloying immiscible elements. Oxide ...
Electrocatalysts are important for many industrial processes as they enhance the conversion of electrical energy into chemical energy and thus help to store excessive electrical energy generated by renewable energy resources. Hydrogen is expected to be crucial for the storage of chemical energy. ...
How geometric structures at surfaces can be formed with atomic precision by water
A central element in such diverse technological problems as corrosion protection, battery materials or hydrogen production via electrolysis or fuel cells is the contact between two conducting elements – the electrolyte and the solid electrode at which a voltage is applied. Despite its importance ...
Scientists discover peculiarities in crystal structure of titanium alloy
Metals which can be bent as gum pave the way for new industrial applications for example in the aerospace industry. These so-called gum metals exist but the mechanism behind this behaviour was still unsettled and thus difficult to be used for applications. Scientists from the Max-Planck-Institut ...
The crystal structure of metals can change at linear defects
Steel has already been around for roughly 3000 years and in several thousand variations today - yet it is always good for a surprise. Scientists at the Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung in Düsseldorf have now made a discovery in manganese steel which is thought to affect the properties of ...
Award honors outstanding research results in the area of electrocatalysts
The international “Science Award Electrochemistry” from BASF and Volkswagen goes in 2013 to Dr. Karl Mayrhofer, work group “Electrocatalysis”, Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung, Düsseldorf. The jury of representatives from BASF, Volkswagen and from academia selected Mayrhofer for the ...
