A novel separation mechanism for the hydrogen isotopes developed

20-Apr-2022

Deuterium, the heavy brother of hydrogen, is considered a promising material of the future – because of its wide range of applications: in science, for energy generation, or in the production of pharmaceuticals. However, the extraction of deuterium from its natural isotope mixture has so far been ...

A remote control for functional materials

New piece to the elusive puzzle of ultrafast ferroelectricity

11-Mar-2022

When mid-infrared laser pulses hit certain complex materials, their fundamental properties can change in astonishing ways. They may become magnetic, ferroelectric or begin to carry electrical currents without any resistance. A key ingredient of these phenomena is the efficient excitation of the ...

Polymers with Helical Blocks

Forming domains in supramolecular polymers using UV irradiation

02-Dec-2021

Polymers, the basis of all plastics, usually do not have an ordered structure, in contrast to biopolymers such as proteins. A team of researchers has now developed a polymer that can be differentiated into folded (ordered) and unfolded (disordered) domains using UV irradiation. The team’s work ...

Researchers discover a path to a shape-shifting ceramic material

23-Nov-2021

From coffee cups to bathroom tiles, ceramics are brittle. Subject to the slightest deformation, they shatter. On the other end of the spectrum of materials, some of the most deformable materials known - that also support large stresses while they deform - are shape memory alloys. The origin of ...
