    Physik am Samstag: Erzeugung von Synchrotronstrahlung und ihre Anwendung in der Medizinphysik
    Prof. Dr. Atoosa Meseck

    Prof. Dr. Atoosa Meseck über das Thema „Erzeugung von Synchrotronstrahlung und ihre Anwendung in der Medizinphysik“. Im Mittelpunkt ihres Vortrags stehen Undulatoren. Diese alternierende Abfolge von Dipolmagneten erzeugt besonders brilliante Synchrotronstrahlung, die wiederum die Möglichkeit neuer Verfahren in der Bildgebung eröffnet. So können Strukturen unter einem Millimeter Größe aufgelöst werden – an Fliegenbeinen zu Forschungszwecken oder dreidimensional im lebendigen menschlichen Gehirn zur Diagnose von neuronalen Erkrankungen.

    International tandemPV Workshop 2021

    Dear PV-Scientists,

    Photovoltaics (PV) is rapidly becoming one of the most important energy sources for a clean and widespread energy supply. In 2019 alone, 120GWp of PV capacity was installed globally. Every country has now realized that PV is not only the best solution ecologically, but also increasingly economically, with an average levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) of around 3ct/kWh, and in some cases as little as 1-2ct/kWh. End 2020 IEA declared PV the cheapest energy source ever. And we are only at the beginning of PV´s success story. In order to reach 50-80TW by 2050, further improvements in module efficiencies and reductions in the Balance of System (BOS) costs are key areas that require ongoing focus. Bifacial tandem technologies will play an important role in the coming 5-10 years and it is therefore high time to connect R&D and industry players from this emerging area to discuss standards, technology, and markets.

    So, we are proud to announce:

    tandemPV2021 workshop on 13th-16th April 2021 - Online

    The goal of this workshop is not only to review existing technologies on the market for tandem PV, but also to set standards, identify further market potential, and improve bankability prospects. We hope to see you at the workshop in Berlin!

    Addressing Scientific Challenges Towards Mitigating Climate Change
    Moderated by Prof. Robert Schlögl (Fritz-Haber-Institut)

    It is an urgent need to reduce our global carbon dioxide emissions to mitigate climate change. While low-cost electricity from solar and wind provides exciting opportunities to reduce emissions, converting electricity to efficient carbon-free or carbon-neutral energy carriers at scale such as stored electrons, fuels and heat remains challenging to deep decarbonization. Electrochemical reactions are central to electrification via batteries, electrolysis in making chemicals, fuels and materials, and negative emission technologies, which represent three important capabilities to connect electricity with our energy demands. Fundamental research on surface and molecular sciences, electron/ion transfer, and ion transport is instrumental to address scientific challenges and make breakthroughs in the core technologies such as lithium batteries and production of hydrogen-based carriers and metals.

    In this lecture, we will address scientific challenges and recent progress in regulating surface oxygen activity and tuning interfacial hydrogen bonds to enhance the functions of lithium batteries, and electrocatalysis of water splitting.

    Barend Mons

    Barend Mons will talk about How to materialise FAIR. First, he will share with us the experiences of the early implementation phase of the FAIR guiding principles: He will give a brief historical review, address how FAIR became a hype term (already more than 5000 citations in the 2016 article) and how this also distracted FAIR from its core at some points. He then will zoom in on lessons learned, and how to make FAIR ‘materialise’.  Finally, he will make a plea for proper and well-budgeted data stewardship plans, compliant with the FAIR guiding principles for each and every research project we may contemplate (yes already when we contemplate, not in hindsight!).
