Topological protection versus degree of entanglement of two-photon light in photonic topological insulators

Researchers from HU, MBI, and the University of Central Florida (USA) have identified criteria for robust transport:

Originally discovered in condensed matter systems, topological insulators are two-dimensional materials that support scattering-free (uni-directional) transport along their edges, even in the presence of defects and disorder....

Solar cells: Losses made visible on the nanoscale

Researchers from HZB and University of Utah, USA, have shown how contact layers of silicon solar cells generate loss currents and what their physical origin is:

Solar cells made of crystalline silicon achieve peak efficiencies, especially in combination with selective contacts made of amorphous silicon (a-Si:H). However, their efficiency is limited by losses in these contact layers....

Terahertz waves from electrons oscillating in liquid water

Researchers at Max-Born-Institute have observed radiation in the terahertz range which is initiated during the electron localization process:

Ionization of water molecules by light generates free electrons in liquid water. After generation, the so-called solvated electron is formed, a localized electron surrounded by a shell of water molecules. In the ultrafast...

Adlershof puts you in a good mood: Why kitchenettes and water coolers are vital places for high technology

Essay by Joachim Fahrun, chief reporter at Berliner Morgenpost:

“Adlershof?” said my chief editor. “That’s a bit overcovered.” In the early 2010s, many people, including me, had reported so much on the Technology Park in Berlin’s South East that some eager media consumers thought it a bit...
