Invitation to the HZB Science Slam: TODAY at 18.30 o’clock in Adlershof

We invite you to the HZB Science Slam that takes place today at 18.30 o’clock at the Melli Beese Kabinett (Adlershof Forum). Three scientists present their topics in an understandable, entertaining and concise way and, moreover, in only 10 minutes. The audience is the judge and jury, voting using numbered cards. This participation provokes discussion as they begin to talk about science and the presentation. The Science Slam is part of the HZB User Meeting.

The Science Slamers are:
Christan Gollwitzer; Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt
Tobias Bock, Helmholtz-Zentrum für Infektionsforschung
Janik Wolters, Technische Universität Berlin

The presentations are in English.

Time and location
18.30 - 21.00

    Fertilisation under the X-ray beam
    After the egg has been fertilized by a sperm, the surrounding egg coat tightens, mechanically preventing the entry of additional sperm and the ensuing death of the embryo. A team from the Karolinska Institutet has now gained this new insight through measurements at the X-ray light sources BESSY II, DLS and ESRF.

    Neutron experiment at BER II reveals new spin phase in quantum materials
    New states of order can arise in quantum magnetic materials under magnetic fields. An international team has now gained new insights into these special states of matter through experiments at the Berlin neutron source BER II and its High-Field Magnet. BER II served science until the end of 2019 and has since been shut down. Results from data at BER II are still being published.
