Hidden Phases in Quantum Materials: A Key to the Next Generation of Data Storage
The 21st century is the Age of Data. In our modern, data-driven world, we need better ways to store data. Current technologies, like magnetic recording, are reaching their limits. However, new materials, called quantum materials, could provide exciting new ways to store data.
Anode Models for Green Hydrogen Production
Researchers from the Interface Science Department at the Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society conducted experiments using atomically defined model pre-catalysts to unveil intricate details of the electrocatalytic water splitting reaction, targeting the advancement of green H2 production.
Watching a Bimetallic Catalytic Surface in Action
A team of researchers from the Department of Interface Science at the Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society addressed the question: what happens to a Ga-promoted Cu surface under reaction conditions required for the synthesis of methanol? They found complex structural transformations of this bimetallic catalyst that might change the common view on the catalytically active surface structure.
