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...
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...
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...
quantum

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...
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...
lattice gauge theories, human liver tissue, Ageing, Gaucher disease, psychiatric disorder, Neuron, deuteron, DNA structure, glioblastoma

A Simplified Formulation of Lattice Gauge Theories for Applications in Particle...

It is not the daily occurrence that physicists from entirely different fields closely work together. However, in theoretical physics a general ansatz can offer...
miniaturised sensor

A Chip for Environmental and Health Monitoring

Sensors for incorporation in inexpensive measuring devices or virtual personal support systems are increasingly in demand in the environmental, safety, and health-monitoring fields.  To...
solid bodies

Drops in Motion

Some knowledge gaps persist for a surprisingly long time. While the friction between a solid body and a surface has been well researched for...

Max-Planck-Princeton Partnership in Fusion Research Confirmed

The scientific performance of Max-Planck-Princeton Center for Plasma Physics, established in 2012 by the Max Planck Society and Princeton University, USA, has been evaluated...
human heart

Proteome of the Human Heart Mapped for the First Time

A healthy heart beats about two billion times during a lifetime – thanks to the interplay of more than 10,000 proteins. Researcher from the...
