An international team of scientists around members of the Department of Inorganic Chemistry has now succeeded in microscopically observing continuous chemical processes on the surface of a working catalyst in real time with the help of state-of-the-art imaging methods. They found that continuous phase transitions are responsible for the functioning of catalysts. more

Scientists from the University of Innsbruck and the Theory Department of the Fritz-Haber-Institute find highly dynamic structural changes at the surface of working Copper electrocatalysts. These changes turn out to be key to the high performance and could be a design target for future improved catalysts. more

The European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grant has been awarded to the Group Leader of the “Cold and ultracold molecules” research group at the Department for Molecular Physics. The Grant provides an endowment of €1.9 million over a period of five years. more

For her contributions and dedication to the advancement of scientific research in Europe the Director of the Department of Interface Science was awarded with a membership to the Academy. more

This summer, four new scientists will be joining the Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society with a Fellowship for Postdoctoral Researchers by the Humboldt Foundation. more

A research team from the Departments of Interface Science and Inorganic Chemistry was able to observe a copper catalyst during the reaction that converts the greenhouse gas CO2 into a chemical energy source. The information gained through their technique will further advance technologically important reactions for green energy production. more

Remembering Horst Conrad

July 06, 2020

The Physicist Horst Günther Conrad, who worked at the Surface Physics and Molecular Physics Departments for more than 30 years, sadly passed away in March this year. The FHI will miss a patient scientist and educator. more
