Three magnetic states for each hole

Press Release of 02.02.2017

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the HZDR have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".


Future raw materials experts from all over the world attend winter school in Freiberg

Press Release of 16.01.2017

The youngsters attending the Winter Business School (9th - 27th January 2017) come from Brazil, Colombia, China and India as well as many other parts of the world and have already graduated in subjects such as Geology, Mineral Engineering, Physics and Chemistry. They are united by a desire to identify solutions to the challenges faced by the raw materials industry and to obtain a European Master’s in Georesources Engineering. This includes a three-week winter school in Freiberg, Saxony. 18 students from the course are taking part.


Chemische Kriminaltechnik in der Archäologie

Press Release of 10.01.2017

Echt oder falsch? Diese Frage stellt sich in der Archäologie häufig. Man denke etwa an die Himmelsscheibe von Nebra. Hier haben hochentwickelte Analysemethoden aus den Naturwissenschaften dazu beigetragen, deren Echtheit zu bestätigen und damit den Fälschungsverdacht zu enthärten. Die Goldfunde aus dem bayerischen Bernstorf hingegen stammen nicht aus der Bronzezeit. Das weiß Professor Ernst Pernicka vom Curt-Engelhorn-Zentrum Archäometrie in Mannheim aufgrund eigener Analysen. Der Experte für antikes Metall leitete die Untersuchungen der Himmelsscheibe von Nebra und war zudem sieben Jahre lang Leiter der Grabungen in Troja. Sein öffentlicher Abendvortrag am 12. Januar um 19 Uhr in der Schlosskapelle des Dresdner Residenzschlosses trägt den Titel „Chemische Kriminaltechnik in der Archäologie“.


Random Access Memory on a Low Energy Diet: Researchers from Dresden and Basel develop basis for a novel memory chip

Press Release of 03.01.2017

Memory chips are among the most basic components in computers. The random access memory is where processors temporarily store their data, which is a crucial function. Researchers from Dresden and Basel have now managed to lay the foundation for a new memory chip concept. It has the potential to use considerably less energy than the chips produced to date – this is important not only for mobile applications but also for big data computing centers. The results are presented in the latest volume of the scientific journal “Nature Communications”.
