They are often referred to as the "building blocks of life": Biomolecules. To understand and use their function in the body, one must know their structure. A complex and sometimes imprecise matter. This is where the new method developed at the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE) together with ...
Atomic Layer Pushes Surface Steps Away
Elbow mentality in a two-dimensional material: This has recently been discovered by an international team led by the Center for Nanointegration (CENIDE) at the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE): The physicists succeeded in creating boron layers with a height of a single atom. While growing, the ...
Coating of Single Atomic Layers for Zinc Sulfide
It is one of the softest white pigments used by the industry. However, zinc sulfide turns gray over time if it is not appropriately pretreated. Chemists under the leadership of the Center for Nanointegration (CENIDE) at the UDE discovered a way to retain its brilliant color and also enable its ...
Award for Electrochemist
Green electricity should be available as soon as possible, at best from all power outlets: electrochemical processes are the basis for a sustainable energy, but they need new, high-performance catalyst materials. Theoretical calculations help to avoid dead ends and to focus on the most promising ...
They are known as "magic sized nano clusters" because they have special properties: The particles consist of only a few atoms, but since they are arranged in a special crystal structure, they are extremely stable. Unless you expose them to light. Scientists from the Center for Nanointegration ...
Industrial Relevance Proven
In catalysts, more surface area usually equals more activity. And hardly anything offers more surface than structures made of nanoparticles. Scientists from the Center for Nanointegration (CENIDE) at the UDEhave shown that it makes sense in economic terms to produce catalytically highly active ...
Seasoning with Nanosilver
Ventilation grilles in aircraft cabins, serial components in cars and lately even mascara brushes: The industry has been using laser-based 3D printers for several years now when precision and good mechanical properties are required. However, these printers are expensive, large and print only in ...
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 ...
