HZDR stellt Uniklinikum Schutzequipment zur Verfügung

News of 23.03.2020

Um das Universitätsklinikum Carl Gustav Carus Dresden im Kampf gegen die weitere Ausbreitung des Corona-Virus zu unterstützen, hat das Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) am Montag, dem 23. März 2020, Schutzequipment an den Kooperationspartner geliefert. Das abgegebene neue Material umfasst unter anderem Einweg-Schutzanzüge, Handschuhe, Schutzmasken sowie Seife und Desinfektionsmittel. Unter normalen Bedingungen benötigen die Forscher die Ausrüstung zum Beispiel beim Umgang mit giftigen Chemikalien, bei der Arbeit in Reinräumen oder, wie am Helmholtz-Institut Freiberg für Ressourcentechnologie (HIF), bei der Aufbereitung von Gestein. Momentan befindet sich das HZDR im Basis-Betrieb. Forschung auf dem Campus findet dementsprechend nur im reduzierten Umfang oder im Schichtbetrieb statt. Bislang gibt es am HZDR keine bestätigte Corona-Infektion.


Peppered with gold

Press Release of 16.03.2020

Terahertz waves are becoming ever more important in science and technology. They enable us to unravel the properties of future materials, test the quality of automotive paint and screen envelopes. But generating these waves is still a challenge. A team at Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR), TU Dresden and the University of Konstanz has now made significant progress. The researchers have developed a germanium component that generates short terahertz pulses with an advantageous property: the pulses have an extreme broadband spectrum and thus deliver many different terahertz frequencies at the same time. As it has been possible to manufacture the component employing methods already used in the semiconductor industry, the development promises a broad range of applications in research and technology, as the team reports in the journal Light: Science & Applications (DOI: 10.1038/s41377-020-0265-4).


Sustainable exploration from the air

Press Release of 11.03.2020

The firms SkyTEM and CGG Multi-Physics are currently testing new methods for environmentally friendly raw material exploration in the southern reference area of the EU project INFACT (Innovative, Non-Invasive and Fully Acceptable Exploration Technologies) in the Spanish region of Andalusia. Using a helicopter and an electromagnetic probe, they fly over the area, covering approximately four hundred square kilometers. Utilizing the data collected, the INFACT researchers can subsequently check whether the sensors they used function as expected by comparing the results with the existing geological information. The INFACT project is coordinated by the Helmholtz Institute Freiberg for Resource Technology (HIF), an institute at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR).

Auf der Tagung werden die Wissenschaftler den Stand ihres Detektorsystems HADES für die geplante Nutzung am internationalen Beschleunigerzentrum FAIR erörtern sowie einen Fahrplan für zukünftige Messungen besprechen.


HZDR awards for outstanding achievements in 2019

News of 26.02.2020

At Wednesday's ceremony of the HZDR Awards, Dr. Denys Makarov, head of Intelligent Materials and Systems Group, received the HZDR Research Award 2019, in recognition of his outstanding work in the field of magnetic sensor technology for microfluidics and augmented reality. The HZDR Doctoral Prize 2019 was awarded to Dr. Jacob König-Otto, who received his doctorate at the Institute of Ion Beam Physics and Materials Research with his dissertation on charge carrier dynamics in graphene below optical phonon energy.


Innovative ways to battle Parkinson’s disease

Press Release of 26.02.2020

An interdisciplinary team from the Institute of Radiopharmaceutical Cancer Research headed by Prof. Peter Brust has won HZDR’s (Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf) third Innovation Contest. The researchers succeeded in developing a new substance that could improve image-based differential diagnostics of Parkinson’s disease. The four-member team, which includes Dr. Thu Hang Lai, Dr. Rodrigo Teodoro and Dr. Magali Toussaint, received the first prize among a total of 21 submissions. They invented a stable molecule that can dock onto receptors on nerve cells and contains a radionuclide, which can be detected by positron emission tomography (PET). The team is now ready for the next decisive step on the way to market approval of the so-called radiotracer: clinical studies to test whether the new substance also proves its value in everyday medical practice.


Directing nanoparticles straight to tumors

Press Release of 24.02.2020

Modern anticancer therapies aim to attack tumor cells while sparing healthy tissue. An interdisciplinary team of researchers at Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) and FU Berlin has made important progress in this area: the scientists have produced tiny nanoparticles that are designed to specifically target cancer cells. They can navigate directly to the tumor cells and visualize those using advanced imaging techniques. Both in petri dishes and animal models, the scientists were able to effectively guide the nanoparticles to the cancer cells. The next step is to combine the new technique with therapeutic approaches.


Hermetically sealed semi-conductors

Press Release of 28.01.2020

Tomorrow’s electronics are getting ever smaller. Researchers are thus searching for tiny components that function reliably in increasingly narrow configurations. Promising elements include the chemical compounds indium selenide (InSe) and gallium selenide (GaSe). In the form of ultra-thin layers, they form two-dimensional (2D) semi-conductors. But, so far, they have hardly been used because they degrade when they get in contact with air during manufacturing. Now, a new technique allows the sensitive material to be integrated in electronic components without losing its desired properties. The method, which has been described in the journal ACS Applied Materials and Interfaces (DOI: 10.1021/acsami.9b13442), was developed by Himani Arora, a doctoral candidate of physics at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR).
