Discovery of a new form of magnetism in strontium ruthenate
Since the discovery of superconductivity in Sr2RuO4 in 1994, hundreds of studies have been published on this compound, which have suggested that Sr2RuO4 is a very special system with unique properties. These properties make Sr2RuO4 a material with great potential, for example, for the development ...
Femtosecond light creates switchable nano-waves in MXenes and moves the materials’ atoms at a record-breaking speed
Ultrafast laser spectroscopy allows to observe the motion of atoms at their natural time scales in the range of femtoseconds, the millionth of a billionth of a second. Electron microscopy, on the other hand, provides atomic spatial resolution. By combining electrons and photons in one instrument, ...
Chemists have developed a method for more sustainable recycling of polyethylene-like plastics
Plastics belong to the most widely used materials, and they are vital components of all modern technologies. So far, it has been possible to recycle these valuable materials only to a limited extent. In order to offer novel solutions, chemists of Professor Stefan Mecking’s group at the University ...
Discovery of liquid glass sheds light on the old scientific problem of the glass transition
An interdisciplinary team of researchers from the University of Konstanz has uncovered a new state of matter, liquid glass, with previously unknown structural elements – new insights into the nature of glass and its transitions. While glass is a truly ubiquitous material that we use on a daily ...
Watching metamaterials at work in real time using ultrafast electron diffraction
Physicists from the University of Konstanz, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (LMU Munich) and the University of Regensburg have successfully demonstrated that ultrashort electron pulses experience a quantum mechanical phase shift through their interaction with light waves in nanophotonic ...
Attosecond time resolution in a transmission electron microscope by combining it with a continuous-wave laser achieved
Electron microscopes provide deep insight into the smallest details of matter and can reveal, for example, the atomic configuration of materials, the structure of proteins or the shape of virus particles. However, most materials in nature are not static and rather interact, move and reshape all ...
They look like toothpicks, but much, much smaller: 10,000 times shorter and 1,000 times thinner. The research team around physicist Professor Eva Weig succeeded in constructing nanopillars so closely together that they can be coupled via the strain field and succinctly oscillate together. This ...
International team of researchers with participation of the University of Konstanz achieves breakthrough in the area of heat transport at molecular scales
Combining novel theoretical and experimental approaches, researchers from the University of Michigan (USA), Kookmin University (South Korea), the University of Konstanz (Germany) and the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (Japan) have successfully measured and ...
New catalysis concept for obtaining polyester from castor oil
The development of future technologies that are not based on mineral oil and can be used for producing chemicals and plastics is one of the major tasks in modern materials science and a key challenge that needs to be addressed if sustainable industrial production is to have a future. A range of ...
Extremely short and specifically-shaped electron pulses for materials studies in the femtosecond and attosecond range
Our world is basically made up of atoms and electrons. They are very small and move around very rapidly in case of processes or reactions. Although seeing atoms is nowadays possible, for example with modern electron microscopes, tracking atomic movements requires ultrashort measurement periods in ...
