Science and Politics: The Fritz Haber Institute in Dialogue

The Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society recently opened its doors for a dialogue between science and politics. more

Breakthrough at the Fritz Haber Institute: First Operation of a Two-Color Mode in an Infrared Free-Electron Laser

A technological milestone has been achieved at the Fritz Haber Institute (FHI) of the Max Planck Society in Berlin. For the first time, an infrared Free-Electron Laser (FEL) has been operated in a two-color mode. This globally unique technology enables experiments with synchronized two-color laser pulses, opening up new possibilities in research. more

Batteries go solar – Project <em>SolBat</em><br />funded by the Max Planck Foundation with around 3 Mio. Euros

Joint project between the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research (Stuttgart) and the Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society (Berlin) explores new avenues to solar batteries and other optoionic technologies. more

Bane and boon of oxygen mediating the performance of nickel catalysts in dry reforming of methane

Catalysis is one of the key technologies in the chemical industry and has a wide-reaching impact on various aspects of our daily lives, including plastics manufacturing, drug synthesis, and production of both fertilizers and fuels. It is estimated that over 90% of chemical products are nowadays manufactured with the involvement of catalysis in at least one stage (Catal. Today, 2011, 163(1)). Catalysis is a complex process that relies on the precise structural control of several elements at the crossroads of phase (in-)stabilities. While long-term stable catalysts are indispensable in order to promote high-performance and efficient reactions, reactants undergo major chemical changes, leading to the formation of final and desired products. In heterogeneous catalysis, catalyst and reactants exist in different phases. more
