Fertilisers of the Future

The Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung (BAM) is developing processes for phosphorus recycling from sewage sludge:

(Almost) nothing works without phosphorus: all living creatures need this nutrient and must absorb it from their food. Although phosphorus is a valuable raw material and its supply is limited, large amounts of it are...


Calls for rapid planning of BESSY III

Evaluation by international panel of experts supports HZB:

The Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) has received an evaluation of “excellent” in a review of science programmes undertaken at all Helmholtz Research Centres. This provides the foundation for future financing of HZB. Two...

Writing and deleting magnets with lasers

Scientists at BESSY II are encountering a completely new phenomenon:

Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) together with colleagues from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, USA have found a way to write and delete...



Bacteria with a magnetism sense

Experiments at BESSY II reveal how the inner compass is constructed:

Bacteria exist in many shapes and with very different talents. Magnetotactic bacteria can even sense the earth’s magnetic field by making use of magnetic nanoparticles in their interior that act as an internal compass....



Freeing electrons to better trap them

For the first time, researchers from UNIGE and MBI in Berlin have placed an electron in a dual state - neither freed nor bound:

Atoms are composed of electrons moving around a central nucleus they are bound to. The electrons can also be torn away, overcoming the confining force of their nucleus, using the powerful electric field of a laser. Half a...

From insulator to conductor in a flash

MBI scientists gain deep insights into the materials of the future using ultrashort laser pulses:

Over the past decades, computers have become faster and faster and hard disks and storage chips have reached enormous capacities. But this trend cannot continue forever: we are already running up against physical limits that...

Scientists from Max Born Institute report an ultrafast x-ray experiment

Wiggling atoms switch the electric polarization of crystals:

Ferroelectric crystals display a macroscopic electric polarization, a superposition of many dipoles at the atomic scale which originate from spatially separated electrons and atomic nuclei. The macroscopic polarization is...

Well networked for the future

Short paths are a good basis for cooperation projects – that are also funded by a fair number of initiatives in the Technology Park:

What do researchers work on? What innovations do companies need? Answers to these simple, yet essential questions can be found at “Economy Meets Science”, an annual event organised by Humboldt University of Berlin (HU) with...
