Exzellente Möglichkeiten für Leipziger Forscher

Press Release of 22.03.2017

Der Ministerpräsident des Freistaates Sachsen, Stanislaw Tillich, der Sächsische Staatsminister für Umwelt und Landwirtschaft, Thomas Schmidt, und der Oberbürgermeister der Stadt Leipzig, Burkhard Jung, haben heute die sanierten Laborräume in der Forschungsstelle Leipzig des Helmholtz-Zentrums Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) eingeweiht.


Kristalle, die flüssiger als Flüssigkeiten sind

Press Release of 20.03.2017

Physiker aus Augsburg und Dresden finden experimentelle Hinweise, dass sich Superfluidität und Supersolidität in magnetischen Systemen realisieren lassen.


Sharp Eye into the Ultra-fast

Press Release of 15.03.2017

Many technological processes for example in information technology occur on very short timescales of the order of one picosecond or less. Scientists use the term ultra-fast when referring to techniques that allow monitoring dynamics on these timescales by means of stroboscopic movies based on pump-probe techniques. Researchers from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) in Dresden, together with colleagues from Hamburg, Berlin and California now demonstrate how this type of movies can be taken with an exceptional dynamic range at superconducting radiofrequency (SRF) accelerator-based light sources.


Copper mining with bioactive substances derived from bacteria

Press Release of 06.03.2017

Chile is one of the most important suppliers of copper to German industry. Within the framework of the scientific and technological cooperation between the two countries, research is now being pursued into how Chilean copper ores can be extracted in a more environmentally sustainable way. Bioactive substances derived from bacteria may replace or reduce chemicals. A further aim is to increase metal yield while extracting metals that are traditionally difficult to separate out, in particular the molybdenum content. The joint project between Helmholtz Institute Freiberg for Resource Technology (HIF) – part of HZDR – and the Advanced Mining and Technology Center at the Universidad de Chile in Santiago de Chile began in February.


Digital gestützter Unterricht: Sachsens Lehrer bilden sich am HZDR weiter

Press Release of 22.02.2017

Dass Lehrer am Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) selbst zu Lernenden werden, ist mittlerweile Tradition: Seit 1998 findet am HZDR einmal jährlich eine Lehrerfortbildung statt. Über 60 Lehrerinnen und Lehrer aus ganz Sachsen folgen in diesem Jahr der Einladung des Schülerlabors DeltaX. Das Thema der ganztägigen Veranstaltung am 24. Februar 2017: „Physik trifft Informatik – Aktuelle Aspekte für Wissenschaft & Schule“.


TELBE User Meeting 2017 at the HZDR

News of 20.02.2017

43 terahertz researchers from the materials and life sciences from overall 15 universities and research institutions participated at the “TELBE User Meeting 2017” and two satellite workshops on February 16 and 17 at the HZDR. These regularly held meetings serve the purpose to optimally develop the TELBE user facility at the ELBE Center for High-Power Radiation Sources towards the user’s needs.


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”.
