Two-dimensional electron gas discovered
Superconductors transmit electric current without loss at any distance and play an important role in quantum computers and medical imaging. But the stars among the electrical conductors work exclusively at extremely low temperatures. Since the discovery of high-temperature superconducting ...
Breakthrough in nanooptics
The duration of their snapshot relates to one second as one second relates to the age of the universe: In a joint collaboration with Australian Scientist Tim Davis and the Group around Harald Gießen (University of Stuttgart), Physicists from CENIDEhave developed ultrafast vector microscopy as a ...
Electrocatalysts can help to obtain chemicals from renewable raw materials or to use alternative energy sources. But testing new catalysts brings challenges. Researchers at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) and the University of Duisburg-Essen have developed a new method of depositing catalyst ...
Unexpected behaviour of the material
No volume, not even a surface: a one-dimensional material is like a wire and has properties that are completely different to its 3D counterpart. Physicists at the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE) have now discovered a system that, at warmer temperatures, forms self-organized wires consisting of ...
The tiny rings that chemists at the Center for Nanointegration (CENIDE) at the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE) create in the laboratory are as small as a bacterium. Self-organized, individual polymer chains form the flexible structures that can even squeeze themselves through cell membranes. ...
Patent pending for process
Not much is possible without catalysts: More than 80% of all chemically manufactured products undergo a catalytic step during their production. The active material is usually platinum or another precious metal, so production is correspondingly expensive and requires several steps. Physicists at ...
They look like interlocking egg cups, but a hen's egg is 100,000 times as thick as one of the miniature cups: Scientists at the Center for Nanointegration (CENIDE) at the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE) have made polymers to form themselves into tiny cups on their own. They could, for example, ...
Chemistry in clouds
Certain molecules with fluorine, chlorine or bromine, together with water, can release harmful substances into the atmosphere. The production of chlorofluorocarbons, which damage the ozone layer, has been banned as far as possible. However, other substances can also tear holes in the ozone layer ...
New Teaching and Research Center for Separation
Agilent Technologies Inc. and the University of Duisburg-Essen has formed a collaboration agreement that brings together Agilent's leading analytical technologies with the University's outstanding researchers. As part of the collaboration, Agilent will support the university with a broad range of ...
A team of Israeli and German researchers from Technion in Haifa and the universities of Kaiserslautern, Duisburg-Essen and Stuttgart have been able to reveal for the first time the dynamics of the orbital angular momentum of plasmons. The researchers used a combination of extremely high-quality ...
