In an important step towards sustainable energy solutions, a recent study published in Energy & Environmental Science reveals progress in the field of green hydrogen production. Led by researchers from the Department of Interface Science at the Fritz Haber Institute (FHI), the study entitled "Role of Fe decoration on the oxygen evolving state of Co3O4 nanocatalysts" uncovers how the addition of iron (Fe) to cobalt oxide (Co3O4) nanocatalysts improves their efficiency and stability in water electrolysis processes.

New synergy between the Fritz Haber Institute and the Berliner Hochschule für Technik to foster innovation in science education

The Fritz Haber Institute is pleased to announce the successful conclusion of two collaborative projects with the Berliner Hochschule für Technik (BHT). During winter semester 2023/2024, two groups of master´s students in Computer Science for Digital Media from BHT, supported by colleagues of the Theory Department and their coordinator, BHT guest lecturer Heinz Junkes, have worked on meliorating tools for visualization and analysis of scientific data, alongside with improving accessibility to server-based scientific simulations. more

Correcting Self-Interaction in Solid-State Electronic Structure Theory

Researchers from the NOMAD Laboratory at the Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society, along with colleagues from Fudan University in Shanghai, have developed a method to correct for a well-known error in density-functional theory (DFT). This error often leads to inaccurate predictions about the electronic properties of materials, complicating the development of new materials. more
