The situation in Berlin's doctors’ surgery is becoming increasingly acute due to the lack of important protective clothing and disinfectants. Some practices have already had to close for this reason. The HZB has therefore decided to provide quick help and is donating 65 boxes of protective clothing that are normally used for work in the laboratories and clean rooms. The boxes were handed over to the Kassenärztliche Vereinigung Berlin on 27.03.2020.

"Protective clothing and disinfectants are desperately needed in the medical practices. This is the moment when we as HZB can help unbureaucratically. That is why I am pleased that so many laboratory managers and OE managers have responded to our request and collected protective equipment that is currently not needed," says Thomas Frederking, Commercial Director, and thanks everyone involved for their great willingness to help.

A large number of boxes were collected - both from the stocks at the Wannsee and Adlershof sites. They mainly contain breathing masks, disposable gloves, overalls and disinfectants. The HZB's transport service will personally hand over the donation to the Kassenärztliche Vereinigung Berlin today. From there, the protective equipment will be distributed to the doctors in Berlin.

    World record back at HZB: Tandem solar cell achieves 32.5 percent efficiency
    The current world record of tandem solar cells consisting of a silicon bottom cell and a perovskite top cell is once again at HZB. The new tandem solar cell converts 32.5 % of the incident solar radiation into electrical energy. The certifying institute European Solar Test Installation (ESTI) in Italy measured the tandem cell and officially confirmed this value which is also included in the NREL chart of solar cell technologies, maintained by the National Renewable Energy Lab, USA.

    On the way to mass production: perovskite silicon tandem cells
    In order to transfer tandem solar cells from laboratory scale to production, HZB is cooperating with the solar module manufacturer Meyer Burger, which has great expertise in heterojunction technology (HJT) for silicon modules. Within the framework of this cooperation, mass production-ready silicon bottom cells based on heterojunction technology are to be combined with a top cell based on perovskite technology.
