After a live broadcast the programme "Die Profis" is now online as a podcast.

Loads of excitements on Friday in Adlershof, when the cafeteria is transformed into a radio station.

Saturday 13th November, RadioEins' science magazine "Die Profis" was broadcast live from the control room of BESSY II.

The focus was particularly on sustainability, climate protection and photovoltaics, regarding COP 26 in Glasgow and the Helmholtz Climate Initiative conference in mid-November.

Moderator Stephan Karkowski welcomed the following guests: Rudger Schlatmann (Institute Competence Centre Photovoltaics, PVcomB), Friedrich Bohn (Department of Ecological Modelling at the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research, UFZ), Claudia Traidl-Hoffmann (School of Medicine, Technische Universität München), Roland Dittmeyer (Director of the Institute for Micro Process Engineering, KIT) and Thomas Jung (Spokesperson for the research programme "Changing Earth - Sustaining our Future" and Vice Director of the Alfred Wegener Institute, AWI).

>> You can listen to the programme now as a podcast (in German).

    Nanodiamonds can be activated as photocatalysts with sunlight
    Nanodiamond materials have potential as low-cost photocatalysts. But until now, such carbon nanoparticles required high-energy UV light to become active. The DIACAT consortium has therefore produced and analysed variations of nanodiamond materials. The work shows: If the surface of the nanoparticles is occupied by sufficient hydrogen atoms, even the weaker energy of blue sunlight is sufficient for excitation. Future photocatalysts based on nanodiamonds might be able to convert CO2 or N2 into hydrocarbons or ammonia with sunlight.

    New monochromator optics for tender X-rays
    Until now, it has been extremely tedious to perform measurements with high sensitivity and high spatial resolution using X-ray light in the tender energy range of 1.5 - 5.0 keV. Yet this X-ray light is ideal for investigating energy materials such as batteries or catalysts, but also biological systems. A team from HZB has now solved this problem: The newly developed monochromator optics increase the photon flux in the tender energy range by a factor of 100 and thus enable highly precise measurements of nanostructured systems. The method was successfully tested for the first time on catalytically active nanoparticles and microchips.
