European Research Council (ERC) has awarded a Starting Grant of 1.75 million Euros to Dr. Sebastian Öner

The European Research Council (ERC) has awarded a Starting Grant of 1.75 million Euros to Dr. Sebastian Öner, group leader at the Interface Science Department of the Fritz Haber Institute. Dr. Öner’s research aims at sensing and controlling ions at liquid-solid and vapor-solid interfaces that are broadly relevant across many scientific domains, including electro-, thermal- and biochemistry. With the ERC grant ORION, Dr. Öner’s group will develop a new electrochemical scanning probe microscopy that enables spatial control over the free energy of interfacial ions, such as protons (H+) and hydroxide ions (OH-) during interfacial water dissociation (H2O-> H+ + OH-).

Royal interest in clean energy storage - King Felipe the VI of Spain visited the Fritz Haber Institute

On Monday, 17 October 2022, King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia of Spain began their three-day visit to Germany with a reception hosted by President Frank-Walter Steinmeier at Bellevue Palace. The Spanish royal couple last visited Germany together in 2014. In the evening, the Federal President will host a state banquet in honour of the royal couple. The afternoon, however, was all about science: King Felipe, who is interested in the subject of energy,  paid a visit to Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society, together with his wife Queen Letizia, to inform himself about the institute’s energy research. more

International conference in Prague started today

The international conference "Challenges on renewable energy storage" at Liblice Castle near Prague started today with strong FHI participation. The conference from 29 to 31 August is being held jointly with the Czech J. Heyrovský Institute for Physical Chemistry and with the support of the CatLab project. more

Research talents on their way

Two "Jugend-Forscht" award winners are interns at the Fritz Haber Institute this summer. In July, Robin Winkelhage from Osnabrück (project "Obtaining carbon dioxide-neutral fuels") spent two weeks at the CatLab in Adlershof. Today Alexandra Simion (project "The Marangoni effect using the example of a water-alcohol drop on oil") from Nuremberg has her first day of internship. more

MIT Professor as guest at FHI

This summer, Prof. Yang Shao-Horn from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is staying at the Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society with a Humboldt Research Award from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. The stay had been delayed due to the worldwide corona pandemic. more
