Synthetic Batteries for the Energy Revolution

Redox-flow battery based on organic polymers and water presented

23-Oct-2015

Sun and wind are important sources of renewable energy, but they suffer from natural fluctuations: In stormy weather or bright sunshine electricity produced exceeds demand, whereas clouds or a lull in the wind inevitably cause a power shortage. For continuity in electricity supply and stable ...

Pushing the limits of lensless imaging

23-Sep-2015

Using ultrafast beams of extreme ultraviolet light streaming at a 100,000 times a second, researchers from the Friedrich Schiller University Jena, Germany, have pushed the boundaries of a well-established imaging technique. Not only did they make the highest resolution images ever achieved with ...

Nanocrystals Make Dentures Shine

Chemists of Jena University develop novel glass ceramics for dentistry

09-Jan-2012

The hardest substance in the human body is moved by its strongest muscles: When we heartily bite into an apple or a schnitzel, enormous strengths are working on the surface of our teeth. “What the natural tooth enamel has to endure also goes for dentures, inlays or bridges“, glass chemist Prof. ...

AFM Tips from the Microwave

Chemists from the Jena University (Germany) improve the process for the fabrication of sharp Atomic Force Microscopy tips

28-Oct-2010

Scientists from the Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena (Germany) were successful in improving a fabrication process for Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) probe tips. Atomic Force Microscopy is able to scan surfaces so that even tiniest nano structures become visible. Knowledge about these structures ...

How the first step affects the (watery) result

German Scientists from Jena and Erlangen-Nürnberg show the way to a more effective creation of hydrogen

28-Jun-2010

Energy from hydrogen - scientists from all over the world work on this solution to overcome the energy crisis. Amongst other things they try to use the sunlight as driving force for the splitting of water into hydrogen and oxygen. In trying to copy the photosynthesis in the laboratory a team of ...

Chemists of Jena University discover what spoils the appetite of slugs

14-Jun-2010

Slugs are every gardener’s enemy: They can destroy overnight, what he has sown and looked after lovingly. But snails don’t like all plants in the same way – they shun moss. Why is that so? This question was already posed by the botanist and founder of Chemical Ecology, Ernst Stahl, at the end of ...
