User research at BESSY II: Formation of a 2D meta-stable oxide in reactive... A research team from the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Energy Conversion has now described an important phenomenon that can occur when metal alloys are exposed to reactive environments at the synchrotron source BESSY II.
BESSY II: Experiment shows for the first time in detail how electrolytes become... For the first time an experiment was developed at BESSY II that shows how electrolytes become metallic. The transition to the state is shown by a change of colour from blue to gold. The publication even appears on the front page of SCIENCE Magazine.
User research at BESSY II: How new materials increase the efficiency of direct... A group from Brazil and an HZB team have investigated a novel composite membrane for ethanol fuel cells. It consists of the polymer Nafion, in which nanoparticles of a titanium compound are embedded by the rarely explored melt extrusion process.
Corona research: Consortium of Berlin research and industry seeks active... The Berlin biotech company Molox GmbH and a team at HZB have initiated a consortium of regional research groups and BASF. They want to identify a starting point for the development of a potential active substance against the new coronavirus.
Coronavirus SARS-CoV2: BESSY II data accelerate drug development At the Berlin X-ray source BESSY II, researchers have decoded a protein involved in the replication of the corona virus. Analysing the 3D architecture allows the systematic development of drugs which inhibit the reproduction of the virus.
Ernst-Eckhard-Koch-Award and Innovation Award for Research in Synchrotron... This year, the circle of friends of the HZB awarded the Ernst Eckhard Koch Prize to two young scientists for their outstanding PhD theses. The European Synchrotron Radiation Innovation Award went to a team of physicists from DESY and PSI.
X-ray microscopy at BESSY II reveals how antimalaria-drugs might work An international team has now been able to investigate malaria pathogens in red blood cells under natural conditions using X-ray microscopy at BESSY II, ALBA and ESRF. They show which mechanisms are used by active substances to attack the pathogens.
Physicists develop "time machine" for materials research Researchers from Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU), Freie Universität Berlin and Technische Universität München will develop fast electronics for data acquisition at BESSY II. This will enable researchers to evaluate the data more extensively - ...
World record in tomography: Watching how metal foam forms Researchers from the HZB and the Paul Scherrer Institute have developed a more powerful imaging method with which more than 200 three-dimensional tomographic X-ray images can be taken every second during measurement intervals of just several minutes.
