Live broadcast at HZB - now as podcast!
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).
Spintronics at BESSY II: Domain walls in magnetic nanowires
Magnetic domains walls are known to be a source of electrical resistance due to the difficulty for transport electron spins to follow their magnetic texture. This phenomenon holds potential for utilization in spintronic devices, where the electrical resistance can vary based on the presence or absence of a domain wall. A particularly intriguing class of materials are half metals such as La2/3Sr1/3MnO3 (LSMO) which present full spin polarization, allowing their exploitation in spintronic devices. Still the resistance of a single domain wall in half metals remained unknown. Now a team from Spain, France and Germany has generated a single domain wall on a LSMO nanowire and measured resistance changes 20 times larger than for a normal ferromagnet such as Cobalt.

Graphene on titanium carbide triggers a novel phase transition
Researchers have discovered a Lifshitz-transition in TiC, driven by a graphene overlayer, at the photon source BESSY II. Their study sheds light on the exciting potential of 2D materials such as graphene and the effects they can have on neighboring materials through proximity interactions.
