Ane Etxebarria from the Interface Science Department of the Fritz Haber Institute was awarded a prestigious MSCA Individual Fellowship. Her work will help design better catalysts for the oxygen evolution reaction (OER) to make future hydrogen production more efficient. more

Obituary for Elmar Zeitler

February 17, 2021

The former director of the Fritz Haber Institute, Prof. Dr Elmar Zeitler, enabled many advances in electron microscopy. In December 2020, he sadly passed away. Prof. Dr. Robert Schlögl remembers him as an uncompromising yet modest scientist, and looks back on his scientific achievements. more

A group of researchers from the Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society and the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin have found out that semiconductors can be converted to metals and back more easily and more quickly than previously thought. This discovery may increase the processing speed and simplify the design of many common technological devices. more

Researchers from the Physical Chemistry Department at the Fritz Haber Institute have together with other European research institutions and companies formed the research consortium OPTOlogic. It aims to develop optical topological computing as a means to reduce energy consumption of electronic circuits. The EU funds the project with almost 4 Million Euros. more

The Fritz Haber Institute, the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Energy Conversion and the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin are building a research platform for catalysis named CatLab to achieve leaps of innovation in hydrogen research. The project is being funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) with more than 50 million Euros. more

The Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society is once again the most popular research institution for Humboldt Fellowships and Awards in Germany. In the last ten years, the FHI has also nearly doubled the share of female scientists from the Humboldt Foundation. The Interface Science Department welcomes two more fellows this winter. more

A research team from the Department of Physical Chemistry was able to observe for the first time the ultrafast hydration dynamics of electrons under real electrochemical conditions using a newly developed optoelectronic sampling scheme. The information gained from their study is essential for understanding the charge transfer at the metal/solution interface, which is at the heart of most electrochemical reactions. more
