Artificial opals measure temperature and time

Researchers discover novel sensors

30-Sep-2021

Due to their iridescent colors, opals have been considered particularly precious gemstones since antiquity. The way these stones shimmer is caused by their nanostructures. A research group led by Prof. Dr. Markus Retsch at the University of Bayreuth has produced colloidal crystals mimicking such ...

On our way to "green" flow batteries

"Our goal is to develop environmentally friendly and highly efficient flow batteries based on iron"

13-Apr-2021

The long-term storage of energy generated from the sun and wind power is of central importance for the transition to green energy. Flow batteries (redox flow batteries) have already proven to be a form of energy storage with great economic and ecological potential. A new research project by Prof. ...

Nitrogen – an exception in the periodic system?

New high-pressure material discovered and a puzzle of the periodic table solved

03-Jun-2020

In the periodic table of elements there is one golden rule for carbon, oxygen, and other light elements. Under high pressures they have similar structures to heavier elements in the same group of elements. Only nitrogen always seemed unwilling to toe the line. However, high-pressure researchers ...

Ceramic coatings for high-tech applications: New spraying method optimized

Powder Aerosol Deposition dense ceramic films can be applied to very different types of materials

24-Apr-2020

For a long time, the production of ceramic coatings has only been possible by means of sintering techniques conducted at more than 1,000 degrees Celsius. However, a novel spraying method, Powder Aerosol Deposition (PAD), enables their production at normal room temperatures. It is therefore highly ...
