FBH Developed Compact Brilliant Laser Light Source
Scientists from the Ferdinand-Braun-Institut (FBH) have developed small, compact brilliant laser light sources, which enable significantly smaller systems for laser projectors and other display technologies. “This rollercoaster ride made me feel really sick,” said Dr. Katrin Paschke, head of a junior research group at the FBH – although she has not even been sitting in the wagon, but watching the ride in a film. The particularly realistic... [more]
The 1.1 MW (820 MWh/year) System is Installed on the “Am Oktogon” at Adlershof
Sulfurcell Solartechnik GmbH today announced its high-performance thin-film modules have been used to construct Berlin’s largest rooftop PV system. The newly installed system at the "Am Oktogon” building at the Adlershof business park in Berlin has a rated output of 1,010 kilowatts peak (kWp) and an annual energy yield of approximately 820 megawatt hours (MWh), enough energy to power 300 private homes. "Sulfurcell is extremely honored... [more]
HZB researchers can take images of small cellular components in their natural environment – while the cell remains intact
Researchers at Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) have developed a new X-ray nanotomography microscope. Using their new system, they can reveal the structures on the smallest components of mammalian cells in three dimensions. For the first time, there is no need to chemically fix, stain or cut cells in order to study them. Instead, whole living cells are fast-frozen and studied in their natural environment. The new method delivers an... [more]
HZB researchers may have observed the fastest melting of all time
Scientists from Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) observed exotic be-haviour from beryllium oxide (BeO) when they bombarded it with high-speed heavy ions: After being shot in this way, the electrons in the BeO appeared “confused”, and seemed to completely forget the material properties of their environment. The researchers’ measurements show changes in the electronic structure that can be explained by extremely rapid melting around the firing line... [more]

Explosives in the travelling bag? Lead in the rubber duck? Hormones in the river water? Questions like these can be put to the Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM), for instance Professor Ulrich Panne. There he is head of the Analytica lChemistry Department. Panne is convinced: “Sociopolitical controversies like those concerning food safety or public places lend themselves to sensible solutions only when there are reliable... [more]
The answer testified to his self assurance: “We integrate our technology basis specifically in partnerships,” replied Ulrich Reineke, head of 3B Pharmaceuticals (3BP), when asked to describe his company’s role in peptide based material research. The company Rina GmbH also works with a similar business model for its activities, which include cell free protein synthesis. Founded in 2008 and operating since 2009 following a buyup from Jerini AG,... [more]
Sometimes, explained Dr Andreas Rolfs, we are challenged by events on the other side of the world. When, for instance, baby food laced with melamine turned up in China, an affordable analytical standard for melamine detection was developed by Witega, a company based in Adlershof and run by Rolfs as the managing director. A similar challenge proved to be the detection of the synthetic dye Sudan Red, a highly carcinogenic substance which was an... [more]
Strings of slime snake through the lemonade. When opened it gives off a cheesy smell. The culprit is Leuconostoc, a lactic acid bacterium that metabolises highly concentrated sugar and forms slime. A whole cargo of the new soft drink is ruined. Goods spoiled by microorganisms cause German companies huge economic losses. Nevertheless, Birgit Fiedler is no fan of sweeping condemnation of microorganisms like yeasts, fungi or bacteria. Twelve years... [more]
Fourteen years ago AZBA GmbH, the analytics centre in Berlin-Adlershof, started operations with ten employees as a WISTA tenant. Today AZBA has a new building and twice as many specialists that support the Adlershof companies and institutes with their analyses. What use is the most modern technology for producing solar cells when the solvents they need are not pure enough? What help is top level research when the institute’s waste water fails... [more]
Every improvement adds to the price – a rule that until today has applied unvaryingly to new developments in the health care system. But now the laboratories of life scientists have set off a revolution that not only promises considerable ease in the treatment of patients or the search for new medicines, but will also enhance their cost effectiveness. Three companies at the Adlershof Environmental Technology Centre ZBU1 were at the head of the... [more]
ADLERSHOF SPECIAL: What induced the EUROPA-CENTER real estate group to invest in this location three years ago? DR. BRENDEL: There were many decisive factors, above all the location’s potential and its development. Adlershof’s encouraging growth figures fulfilled all of our expectations. How does EUROPA-CENTER fit in here exactly as a lessor of office and industrial space? With a huge range of research, technology and media production... [more]
