Energymaterials at HZBblog.de

The Blog www.energymaterials.hzbblog.de is a place, where we mention nice papers of HZB scientists, too specialized for the mass media, but really interesting for colleagues and experts. We also might link to relevant articles in science journals and we would be glad if you want to contribute to this blog.

    First “Freigeist”-Workshop at HZB ?Dynamics of Energy Transfer on the Nanoscale?

    Last week 50 scientists from all over the world have gathered at BESSY II. Physicists or chemists, experimentalists or pure theoreticians. It was an interdisciplinary crowd, discussing openly and in an extraordinary friendly way about new and sometimes hypothetical processes in hybrid nanomaterials, how to model them and how to explore and characterizethem experimentally. Freigeist fellow Dr. Annika Bande has invited to this big workshop, sponsored by Volkswagen Foundation. Together with her young team, the theoretical chemist is modelling the dynamics of electrons in semiconductor materials , which upon miniaturization give rise to so called quantum dots. The result: Exchange and new ideas [...].

    Summerstudents 2017: Final presentation on Thursday 28. September, 11:00

    All summerstudents will present their projects in a conference at HZB Campus Wannsee on thursday 18 September. The conference will start at 11:00 with four talks. The speakers have been elected by the summerstudents themselves. After lunch, the poster session starts. Every student has prepared a poster presenting her or his project, the context, the motivation and what has been achieved during the two months project in summer 2017. An award is given to the best poster along criteria such as communications skills, layout and design, and – of course – scientific achievement. 11.00-12.00 Oral Presentations 13.30 -15:30 Poster session 16.00 Presentation of the posterRead More → [...].

    Development of a mechanically stable and radiation-hard macromolecular crystal system

      Protein crystals are a tricky matter to study. Sometimes you can get them easily, without any effort, but sometimes to obtain one, you need to work hard and even that doesn?t bring success for a long. Once you get the crystal, it opens the gate to a long process to determine the molecular structure. Crystals are often very delicate and can be easily destroyed by mechanical and chemical agents as well as temperature changes. In view of these obstacles, many applications in macromolecular crystallography would benefit from the availability of a macromolecular crystal system, which exhibits outstanding diffraction properties, which is mechanically stable and radiation-hardRead More →Der [...].
