Topology and Magnetism

The Marriage of Topology and Magnetism in a Weyl System

Topology is a global aspect of materials, leading to fundamental new properties for compounds with large relativistic effects. The incorporation of heavy elements give...
solar cells

What Happens in a Solar Cell When the Lights Go Out?

What happens in a solar cell when the lights go out depends heavily on the material being used. In conventional silicon solar cells, as...
plasma heating

IPP’s ELISE Test Rig Achieves First ITER Objective

The heating beam in the ELISE test rig at Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics (IPP) at Garching near Munich has attained the values...
Dendritic Spines

New Software Designed for Rapid, Automated Identification of Dendritic Spines

Is it possible for microscopes to learn a bit about the brain? Even be taught by neuroscientists to reliably recognize parts of brain cells…...
bubonic plague

Oldest Bubonic Plague Genome Decoded

An international team of researchers led by the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History has analyzed two 3,800-year-old Y. pestis genomes that suggest...
Phosphors

Positrons Are Shining Brighter

Phosphors have long been in daily use, e.g. in TV screens or PC monitors and in science for investigating plasmas and particle or antiparticle...
femtosecond light source

Molecules Brilliantly Illuminated

Molecules are the building blocks of life. Like all other organisms, we are made of them. They control our biorhythm, and they can also...
Ultrafast Solid-State

The Future of Ultrafast Solid-State Physics

Physicists can now control light in both time and space with hitherto unimagined precision. This is particularly true for the ability to generate ultrashort...
thin film

Splicing Together a Thin Film in Motion

Technology reliant on thin film materials has become ubiquitous in our everyday life. Control of the electronic properties of materials at the nanometer level...
Organic light-emitting diodes

OLED: Nanometer-Thin Layer Improves Efficiency

Organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) are used as light sources in high-quality smartphone displays and large-area high-end products such as OLED televisions. The main active...
malaria

Fighting Malaria with Green Chemical Synthesis

The most important active ingredient against malaria can now be produced in a considerably more efficient and environmentally friendly way. Researchers at the Max...
Parkinson's

TSRI Researchers Uncover Culprit in Parkinson’s Brain Cell Die-Off

An estimated 10 million people worldwide are living with Parkinson’s disease—an incurable neurodegenerative disorder that leads to an increasing loss of motor control. If we...
Attoseconds

Attoseconds Break into Atomic Interior

This has made it possible to observe the interaction of multiple photons in a single such pulse with electrons in the inner orbital shell...
broadband infrared

A Keen Sense for Molecules

Infrared light has a keen sense for molecules. With the help of this light, researchers are able to go in search of the small...
quadrillionth

A Quadrillionth of a Second in Slow Motion

Many chemical processes run so fast that they are only roughly understood. To clarify these processes, a team from the Technical University of Munich...

Light Controls Two-Atom Quantum Computation

Some powerful rulers of the world may dream of the possibility to get in touch with their colleagues on different continents unnoticed by friends...
Superconductors

Superconductors Earn Their Stripes

Understanding high temperature superconductivity (high Tc) has been a long-standing challenge since its discovery in copper oxide compounds in 1986. A key issue in...
quantum physics

In the Kaleidoscope of Quantum Physics

Roughly 100 years after the quantum nature of light and matter was discovered, quantum physics is experiencing a kind of revolution. New techniques based,...
bone marrow

By Altering Bone Marrow, ‘Training’ Can Prepare Innate Immune System for...

When you receive a vaccine against a disease like polio or influenza, your immune system gears up to defend against that particular infection. If...
genomics

Lights, Camera, Action of Genes in Development

Levine uses live-imaging and other methods to study the regulation of genes involved in the development of an organism from embryo to adulthood. He...
