Untersuchung von Bodenproben nach Mikroplastik


BAM researchers detect microplastics in soils quickly and accurately

Investigation of soil samples by NIR probe & decision on microplastics content by multivariate data analysis of NIR spectra:

Microplastics can be found in almost every ecosystem, in water, air and soil. Nevertheless, there is a lack of precise knowledge about the actual quantities and their distribution. The reason for this lies in the similarity...


How Molecules teeter in a laser field

MBI scientists demonstrate the first attosecond transient absorption spectroscopy (ATAS) experiment on a polyatomic molecule:

When molecules interact with the oscillating field of a laser, an instantaneous, time-dependent dipole is induced. This very general effect underlies diverse physical phenomena such as optical tweezers, for which Arthur...



How could artificial photosynthesis contribute to limiting global warming?

Researchers publish calculations to remove CO2 from the atmosphere:

If CO2 emissions do not fall fast enough, then CO2 will have to be removed from the atmosphere in the future to limit global warming. Not only could planting new forests and biomass contribute to this, but new technologies...
