Producing hydrogen using less energy

International research team describes complete reaction path for electrocatalytic hydrogen generation

24-Jun-2021

The way in which a compound inspired by nature produces hydrogen has now been described in detail for the first time by an international research team from the University of Jena and the University of Milan-Bicocca. These findings are the foundation for the energy-efficient production of hydrogen ...

Hybrid membrane doubles the lifetime of rechargeable batteries

Chemists prevent dendrite formation in lithium metal batteries

21-Jun-2021

The energy density of traditional lithium-ion batteries is approaching a saturation point that cannot meet the demands of the future – for example in electric vehicles. Lithium metal batteries can provide double the energy per unit weight when compared to lithium-ion batteries. The biggest ...

Making the invisible visible

New method for studying atomic structures in material surfaces

21-May-2021

Researchers from Friedrich Schiller University Jena, the University of California Berkeley and the Institut Polytechnique de Paris use intense laser light in the extreme ultraviolet spectrum to generate a non-linear optical process on a laboratory scale – a process which until now has only been ...

A sharper look at the interior of semiconductors

A research team is developing a high-resolution imaging technique that can be used to determine internal structures in materials and their chemical composition in a non-destructive manner and with nanometre precision

19-Feb-2021

Images provide information – what we can observe with our own eyes enables us to understand. Constantly expanding the field of perception into dimensions that are initially hidden from the naked eye, drives science forward. Today, increasingly powerful microscopes let us see into the cells and ...

Teamwork in a molecule

Chemists harness synergy effect of gallium

22-Jan-2021

Chemists at Friedrich Schiller University Jena have demonstrated the value of “teamwork” by successfully harnessing the interaction between two gallium atoms in a novel compound to split the particularly strong bond between fluorine and carbon. The gallium compound is also cheaper and more ...

Novel glass materials made from organic and inorganic components

Research team from Jena and Cambridge develops glass materials with novel combinations of properties

18-Nov-2020

Linkages between organic and inorganic materials are a common phenomenon in nature, e.g., in the construction of bones and skeletal structures. They often enable combinations of properties that could not be achieved with just one type of material. In technological material development, however, ...

Intelligent nanomaterials for photonics

Physicists and chemists engineer optical fibres with 2D materials

13-Oct-2020

2D materials – nanosheets with atomic thickness – have enormous potential for a wide variety of applications. For instance, combined with optical fibres, 2D materials can enable novel applications in the areas of sensors, non-linear optics, and quantum technologies. However, combining these two ...

New storage battery more efficient and heat-resistant

Chemists develop new polymer electrolytes for redox flow batteries

30-Sep-2020

The share of energy from renewable sources is constantly on the rise in Germany. At the beginning of 2020, for the first time ever, renewable energy was able to cover more than half of the electricity consumed in Germany. But the more important renewable energy sources become, the more urgent is ...

Novel approach to the storage of solar energy

Molecular approach enables light-driven photochemistry in the dark for the first time

21-Sep-2020

Using the energy from the sun as efficiently as nature does and converting it into chemical energy could drastically reduce global CO2 emissions. A research team from the Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz IPHT) and the Friedrich Schiller University Jena has now come one step ...
