New catalyst for fuel cells

Researchers discover a potential substitute for platinum

17-Dec-2013

Fuel cells represent an important component of the energy transition, as they supply electrical energy without first having to create heat and steam from fossil fuels. Instead, they create the energy directly from a reaction of hydrogen and oxygen to form water. For that reason, they can create ...

New citation indicators needed to measure research performance

14-Feb-2013

How do you compare the impact of a researcher in chemistry or physics with a molecular biologist who may be working on similar projects? Two experts support the use of citation indicators that are based on percentiles, a statistical parameter that allows for comparisons with a carefully defined ...

Constructive conflict in the superconductor

22-Aug-2012

Whether a material conducts electricity without losses is not least a question of the right temperature. In future it may be possible to make a more reliable prediction for high-temperature superconductors. These materials lose their resistance if they are cooled with liquid nitrogen, which is ...

Chemists explain the molecular workings of promising fuel cell electrolyte

24-Apr-2012

Researchers from New York University and the Max Planck Institute in Stuttgart reveal how protons move in phosphoric acid in a Nature Chemistry study that sheds new light on the workings of a promising fuel cell electrolyte. Phosphoric acid fuel cells were the first modern fuel cell types to be ...

The world's smallest magnetic data storage unit

16-Jan-2012

Scientists from IBM and the German Center for Free-Electron Laser Science (CFEL) have built the world's smallest magnetic data storage unit. It uses just twelve atoms per bit, the basic unit of information, and squeezes a whole byte (8 bit) into as few as 96 atoms. A modern hard drive, for ...

Molecular Rendezvous Caught on Camera

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

04-May-2007

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 ...

Golden Nano-Dumbbells

Selective binding of gold nanoparticles to the ends of rod-shaped viruses

10-Apr-2007

Nanotechnology appears to be an unstoppable trend and it requires defined nanoscale building blocks and patterns. "A typical difficulty with the synthesis of nanostructures is the modification of nanoscale objects at specific positions" says Alexander Bittner, whose work with a team from the Max ...

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

06-Jul-2006

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 ...

2006 Agilent Technologies Europhysics Prize awarded for theory that explains properties of materials

10-Mar-2006

Agilent Technologies Inc. today announced that the European Physical Society (EPS) has awarded the 2006 Agilent Europhysics Prize for Outstanding Achievement in Condensed Matter Physics to four scientists for their development and application of the Dynamical Mean Field Theory, which explains ...
