Quasi‑1D XY antiferromagnet Sr2Ni(SeO3)2Cl2 at Sakai‑Takahashi phase diagram

Kozlyakova, E. S.; Moskin, A. V.; Berdonosov, P. S.; Gapontsev, V. V.; Streltsov, S. V.; Uhlarz, M.; Spachmann, S.; Elghandour, A.; Klingeler, R.; Vasiliev, A. N.

Uniform quasi-one-dimensional integer spin compounds are of interest as a potential realization of the Haldane conjecture of a gapped spin liquid. This phase, however, has to compete with magnetic anisotropy and long-range ordered phases, the implementation of which depends on the ratio of interchain J′ and intrachain J exchange interactions and both uniaxial D and rhombic E single-ion anisotropies. Strontium nickel selenite chloride, Sr2Ni(SeO3)2Cl2, is a spin-1 chain system which passes through a correlations regime at Tmax ~ 12 K to long-range order at TN = 6 K. Under external magnetic field it experiences the sequence of spin-flop at Bc1 = 9.0 T and spin-flip transitions Bc2 = 23.7 T prior to full saturation at Bsat = 31.0 T. Density functional theory provides values of the main exchange interactions and uniaxial anisotropy which corroborate the experimental findings. The values of J′/J = 0.083 and D/J = 0.357 place this compound into a hitherto unoccupied sector of the Sakai-Takahashi phase diagram.

Trident process in laser pulses

Dinu, V.; Torgrimsson, G.

We study the trident process in laser pulses. We provide exact numerical results for all contributions, including the difficult exchange term. We show that all terms are in general important for a short pulse. For a long pulse, we identify a term that gives the dominant contribution even if the intensity is only moderately high, a0≳1, which is an experimentally important regime where the standard locally constant field (LCF) approximation cannot be used. We show that the spectrum has a richer structure at a0∼1, compared to the LCF regime a0≫1. We study the convergence to LCF as a0 increases and how this convergence depends on the momentum of the initial electron. We also identify the terms that dominate at high energy.

Large linear non-saturating magnetoresistance and high mobility in ferromagnetic MnBi

He, Y.; Gayles, J.; Yao, M.; Helm, T.; Reimann, T.; Strocov, V. N.; Schnelle, W.; Nicklas, M.; Sun, Y.; Fecher, G. H.; Felser, C.

A large non-saturating magnetoresistance has been observed in several nonmagnetic topological Weyl semi-metals with high mobility of charge carriers at the Fermi energy. However, ferromagnetic systems rarely display a large magnetoresistance because of localized electrons in heavy d bands with a low Fermi velocity. Here, we report a large linear non-saturating magnetoresistance and high mobility in ferromagnetic MnBi. MnBi, unlike conventional ferromagnets, exhibits a large linear non-saturating magnetoresistance of 5000% under a pulsed field of 70 T. The electrons and holes’ mobilities are both 5000 cm2V−1s−1 at 2 K, which are one of the highest for ferromagnetic materials. These phenomena are due to the spin-polarised Bi 6p band’s sharp dispersion with a small effective mass. Our study provides an approach to achieve high mobility in ferromagnetic systems with a high Curie temperature, which is advantageous for topological spintronics.

Approximating higher-order nonlinear QED processes with first-order building blocks

Dinu, V.; Torgrimsson, G.

Higher-order tree-level processes in strong laser fields, i.e., cascades, are in general extremely difficult to calculate, but in some regimes the dominant contribution comes from a sequence of first-order processes, i.e., nonlinear Compton scattering and nonlinear Breit-Wheeler pair production. At high intensity the field can be treated as locally constant, which is the basis for standard particle-in-cell codes. However, the locally-constant-field (LCF) approximation and these particle-in-cell codes cannot be used when the intensity is only moderately high, which is a regime that is experimentally relevant. We have shown that one can still use a sequence of first-order processes to estimate higher orders at moderate intensities provided the field is sufficiently long. An important aspect of our new “gluing” approach is the role of the spin and polarization of intermediate particles, which is more nontrivial compared to the LCF regime.

The European XFEL delivers up to 27000 intense (>1012 photons) pulses per second, of ultrashort (≤50 fs) and transversely coherent X-ray radiation, at a maximum repetition rate of 4.5 MHz. Its unique X-ray beam parameters enable groundbreaking experiments in matter at extreme conditions at the High Energy Density (HED) scientific instrument. The performance of the HED instrument during its first two years of operation, its scientific remit, as well as ongoing installations towards full operation are presented. Scientific goals of HED include the investigation of extreme states of matter created by intense laser pulses, diamond anvil cells, or pulsed magnets, and ultrafast X-ray methods that allow their diagnosis using self-amplified spontaneous emission between 5 and 25 keV, coupled with X-ray monochromators and optional seeded beam operation. The HED instrument provides two target chambers, X-ray spectrometers for emission and scattering, X-ray detectors, and a timing tool to correct for residual timing jitter between laser and X-ray pulses.

Nonlinear trident in the high-energy limit: Nonlocality, Coulomb field and resummations

Torgrimsson, G.

We study nonlinear trident in laser pulses in the high-energy limit, where the initial electron experiences, in its rest frame, an electromagnetic field strength above Schwinger’s critical field. At lower energies the dominant contribution comes from the “two-step” part, but in the high-energy limit the dominant contribution comes instead from the one-step term. We obtain new approximations that explain the relation between the high-energy limit of trident and pair production by a Coulomb field, as well as the role of the Weizsäcker-Williams approximation and why it does not agree with the high-χ limit of the locally-constant-field approximation. We also show that the next-to-leading order in the large-a0 expansion is, in the high-energy limit, nonlocal and is numerically very important even for quite large a0. We show that the small-a0 perturbation series has a finite radius of convergence, but using Padé-conformal methods we obtain resummations that go beyond the radius of convergence and have a large numerical overlap with the large-a0 approximation. We use Borel-Padé-conformal methods to resum the small-χ expansion and obtain a high precision up to very large χ. We also use newer resummation methods based on hypergeometric/Meijer-G and confluent hypergeometric functions.

Nonlinear photon trident versus double Compton scattering and resummation of one-step terms

Torgrimsson, G.

We study the photon trident process, where an initial photon turns into an electron-positron pair and a final photon under a nonlinear interaction with a strong plane-wave background field. We show that this process is very similar to double Compton scattering, where an electron interacts with the background field and emits two photons. We also show how the one-step terms can be obtained by resumming the small- and large-\chiχ expansions. We consider a couple of different resummation methods, and also propose new resummations (involving Meijer-G functions) which have the correct type of expansions at both small and large \chiχ. These new resummations require relatively few terms to give good precision.

Loops and polarization in strong-field QED

Torgrimsson, G.

In a previous paper we showed how higher-order strong-field-QED processes in long laser pulses can be approximated by multiplying sequences of ‘strong-field Mueller matrices’. We obtained expressions that are valid for arbitrary field shape and polarization. In this paper we derive practical approximations of these Mueller matrices in the locally-constant- and the locally-monochromatic-field regimes. The spin and polarization can also change due to loop contributions (the mass operator for electrons and the polarization operator for photons). We derive Mueller matrices for these as well, for arbitrary laser polarization and arbitrarily polarized initial and final particles.

Resummation of Quantum Radiation Reaction in Plane Waves

Torgrimsson, G.

We propose a new approach to obtain the momentum expectation value of an electron in a high-intensity laser, including multiple photon emissions and loops. We find a recursive formula that allows us to obtain the O(αn) term from O(αn-1), which can also be expressed as an integro-differential equation. In the classical limit we obtain the solution to the Landau-Lifshitz equation to all orders. We show how spin-dependent quantum radiation reaction can be obtained by resumming both the energy expansion as well as the α expansion.

Resummation of quantum radiation reaction and induced polarization

Torgrimsson, G.

In a previous paper we proposed a new method based on resummations for studying radiation reaction of an electron in a plane-wave electromagnetic field. In this paper we use this method to study the electron momentum expectation value for a circularly polarized monochromatic field with a0=1, for which standard locally constant-field methods cannot be used. We also find that radiation reaction has a significant effect on the induced polarization, as compared to the results without radiation reaction, i.e., the Sokolov-Ternov formula for a constant field, or the zero result for a circularly monochromatic field. We also study the Abraham-Lorentz-Dirac equation using Borel-Padé resummations.

High-field soft-x-ray dichroism of a hard ferrimagnet with easy-plane anisotropy

Yamamoto, S.; Gorbunov, D.; Diaz-Ortega, I. F.; Miyata, A.; Kihara, T.; Kotani, Y.; Nakamura, T.; Mushnikov, N. V.; Andreev, A. V.; Nojiri, H.; Wosnitza, J.

We performed soft x-ray spectroscopic studies of the ferrimagnet TbFe5Al7 with strong easy-plane anisotropy in pulsed magnetic fields up to 29 T along with bulk magnetization and magnetostriction measurements. We observed pronounced amplitude changes of x-ray magnetic circular dichroism and x-ray absorption spectra at the field-induced magnetic transition. This microscopically evidences the simultaneous rotation of the Tb 4 f and Fe 3d magnetic moments from a collinear ferrimagnetic order along the [100] axis to a state with the moments close to [010], the other easy-axis direction of the tetragonal lattice in magnetic fields applied along the [100] axis. We determined the magnetic-anisotropy constant of TbFe5Al7 by simulating the high-field macro- and microscopic magnetization process using a two-sublattice model.

Neutron diffraction of field-induced magnon condensation in the spin-dimerized antiferromagnet Sr3Cr2O8

Gazizulina, A.; Quintero-Castro, D. L.; Wang, Z.; Duc, F.; Bourdarot, F.; Prokes, K.; Schmidt, W.; Daou, R.; Zherlitsyn, S.; Islam, N.; Kolnes, N. H.; Kademane, A. B.; Schilling, A.; Lake, B.

In this work, we investigate the evolution and settling of magnon condensation in the spin-1/2 dimer system Sr3Cr2O8 using a combination of magnetostriction in pulsed fields and inelastic neutron scattering in a continuous magnetic field. The magnetic structure in the Bose-Einstein condensation phase was probed by neutron diffraction in pulsed magnetic fields up to 39 T. The magnetic structure in this phase was confirmed to be an XY-antiferromagnetic structure validated by irreducible representational analysis. The magnetic phase diagram as a function of an applied magnetic field for this system is presented. Furthermore, zero-field neutron diffraction results indicate that dimerization plays an important role in stabilizing the low-temperature crystal structure.

Drastic reduction of the R-Fe exchange in interstitially modified (Nd, Ho)2Fe14B compounds probed by megagauss magnetic fields

Kostyuchenko, N. V.; Tereshina, I. S.; Tereshina-Chitrova, E. A.; Ivanov, L. A.; Paukov, M.; Gorbunov, D.; Andreev, A. V.; Doerr, M.; Politova, G. A.; Zvezdin, A. K.; Veselova, S. V.; Pyatakov, A. P.; Miyata, A.; Drachenko, O.; Portugall, O.

In this paper, the full magnetization process demonstrated by the series of ferrimagnetic intermetallic compounds (Nd, Ho)2Fe14B and Ho2FeB and their hydrides with the maximum possible hydrogen content (for the given crystal structure type) is studied theoretically and experimentally using megagauss magnetic fields. We observe field-induced phase transitions from the initial ferrimagnetic to the forced-ferromagnetic state in magnetic fields up to 130 T and describe the magnetization process analytically.We find a drastic decrease of the critical transition fields in the hydrogenated compounds. This is due to extremely strong, nearly twofold reduction of the R-Fe intersublattice exchange interaction because of the combined substitution and hydrogenation effects. A comparative analysis of the magnetization behavior for the system Ho2Fe17-H is also performed.

Highly sensitive band structure of the Stoner-enhanced Pauli paramagnet SrCo2P2

Götze, K.; Kraft, I.; Klotz, J.; Förster, T.; Uhlarz, M.; Lorenz, V.; Bergmann, C.; Prots, Y.; Bruin, J. A. N.; McCollam, A.; Sheikin, I.; Wosnitza, J.; Geibel, C.; Rosner, H.

The compound SrCo2P2 is a Pauli paramagnet very close to ferromagnetic order. To study its electronic structure in close vicinity to the Fermi level, we report measurements of the de Haas–van Alphen effect in magnetic fields up to 35 T in combination with density-functional-theory band-structure calculations in different approximations. The resulting electronic band structure not only depends significantly on the choice of the functional, but also crucially on the exact values of the structural parameters that have been determined at low temperatures by synchrotron x-ray diffraction. We find the best correspondence between the measured and the calculated de Haas–van Alphen frequencies for the general gradient approximation functional and the structural parameters that were determined at 10 K. Although SrCo2P2 crystallizes in the uncollapsed tetragonal structure with a large P-P distance between the CoP2 layers, we observe a rather three-dimensional Fermi-surface topology. We obtain a mass-enhancement factor of about 2 deduced from the ratio between experimental and calculated quasiparticle masses. The temperature dependence of the structural parameters leads to a significant reduction of the electronic density of states at the Fermi level and in comparison with the measured Sommerfeld coefficient to an overall mass renormalization in line with our experiment.

Multiple field-induced phases in the frustrated triangular magnet Cs3Fe2Br9

Brüning, D.; Fröhlich, T.; Gorkov, D.; Cisarova, I.; Scurschii, I.; Rossi, L.; Bryant, B.; Wiedmann, S.; Meven, M.; Ushakov, A.; Streltsov, S. V.; Khomskii, D.; Becker, P.; Bohatý, L.; Braden, M.; Lorenz, T.

The recently discovered material Cs3Fe2Br9 contains Fe2Br9 bi-octahedra forming triangular layers with hexagonal stacking along the c axis. In contrast to isostructural Cr-based compounds, the zero-field ground state is not a nonmagnetic S = 0 singlet-dimer state. Instead, the Fe2Br9 bi-octahedra host semiclassical S = 5/2 Fe3+ spins with a pronounced easy-axis anisotropy along c, and interestingly, the intradimer spins are ordered ferromagnetically. The high degree of magnetic frustration due to (various) competing intradimer and interdimer couplings leads to a surprisingly rich magnetic phase diagram. The zero-field ground state is already reached via an intermediate phase, and the high-field magnetization and thermal expansion data for H ǀǀ c identify 10 different ordered phases. Among them are phases with constant magnetization of 1/3 , respectively 1/2, of the saturation value, and several transitions are strongly hysteretic with pronounced length changes, reflecting strong magnetoelastic coupling.

Übertragung von SARS Coronaviren über die Luft – Von der Grundlagenforschung zu effizienten Luftreinigungssystemen

Lecrivain, G.; Hampel, U.

Neben Tröpfchen- und Schmierinfektion ist der nach derzeitiger Kenntnis effektivste Übertragungsweg des Corona-Virus der Aerosoltransport. Diese Formen der Übertragung führen leicht zu sogenannten Superspreading-Ereignissen. Solange keine wirksamen Impfstoffe verfügbar sind, sind strenge Hygieneregeln, wie das Tragen von Masken, Abstandhalten, häufiges Reinigen und Desinfizieren von Händen und Oberflächen sowie ausreichendes Lüften von Räumen, einzig wirksame Maßnahmen gegen eine Virenausbreitung. Da der Erfolg solcher Maßnahmen stark vom Faktor Mensch abhängt, ist eine der wesentlichen Erkenntnisse aus dem bisherigen Pandemieverlauf die, dass es dringend notwendig ist, wirksame, sichere und bezahlbare Technologien zur Verhinderung der Virenausbreitung zu entwickeln. Damit können drastische Maßnahmen, wie öffentliche Schließungen und Quarantäne, verhindert werden. Dies gilt nicht nur für die aktuelle, sondern auch für zukünftige Pandemien dieser Art. Das Vorhaben CORAERO der Helmholtz-Gemeinschaft zielt darauf ab, mittels interdisziplinärer wissenschaftlich-technologischer Zusammenarbeit signifikante Beiträge zum Erkenntnisgewinn bezüglich des aerosolgetriebenen Virustransports sowie zur Entwicklung von Technologien für eine effiziente physikalische Virenbekämpfung zu leisten. Es verbindet Wissenschaftler/innen aus der Virologie, der Medizin, der angewandten Physik, der Chemie, der Materialforschung und des Ingenieurwesens, schafft neues Wissen und entwickelt Technologien entlang der Infektionskette von der Aerosolentstehung im Atemweg bis zur effektiven Zerstörung des Virus durch Luftbehandlung in öffentlichen Räumen wie Schulen, Betrieben, Passagierfahrzeugen oder Konzerthallen

Magnetic phase diagram, magnetoelastic coupling, and Grüneisen scaling in CoTiO3

Hoffmann, M.; Dey, K.; Werner, J.; Bag, R.; Kaiser, J.; Wadepohl, H.; Scurschii, I.; Abdel-Hafiez, M.; Singh, S.; Klingeler, R.

High-quality single crystals of CoTiO3 are grown and used to elucidate in detail structural and magnetostructural effects by means of high-resolution capacitance dilatometry studies in fields up to 15 T which are complemented by specific heat and magnetization measurements. In addition, we refine the single-crystal structure of the ilmenite (R¯3) phase. At the antiferromagnetic ordering temperature TN pronounced λ-shaped anomaly in the thermal expansion coefficients signals shrinking of both the c and b axes, indicating strong magnetoelastic coupling with uniaxial pressure along c yielding six times larger effect on TN than pressure applied in-plane. The hydrostatic pressure dependency derived by means of Grüneisen analysis amounts to ∂TN/∂ p ≈ 2.7(4) K/GPa. The high-field magnetization studies in static and pulsed magnetic fields up to 60 T along with high-field thermal expansion measurements facilitate in constructing the complete anisotropic magnetic phase diagram of CoTiO3. While the results confirm the presence of significant magnetodielectric coupling, our data show that magnetism drives the observed structural, dielectric, and magnetic changes both in the short-range ordered regime well above TN as well as in the long-range magnetically ordered phase.

Sputter yields of rough surfaces: Importance of the mean surface inclination angle from nano- to microscopic rough regimes

Cupak, C.; Szabo, P. S.; Biber, H.; Stadlmayr, R.; Grave, C.; Fellinger, M.; Brötzner, J.; Wilhelm, R. A.; Möller, W.; Mutzke, A.; Moro, M. V.; Aumayr, F.

The roughness of a surface is known to have a strong influence on the sputtering process. Commonly used 1D Monte Carlo codes for calculating sputter yields show good agreement with experimental data only for comparably flat surfaces, whereas local ion incidence angles, shadowing and redeposition influence the sputter yields in both magnitude and angular dependence on rough surfaces. In the present work, we therefore investigated tungsten samples of largely different roughness, characterised by atomic force and confocal microscopy. A highly sensitive quartz crystal microbalance was used to determine sputter yields during ion irradiation. Low ion fluences were applied to ensure that the surface morphology did not change during irradiation. The results were used to benchmark our new ray-tracing simulation code SPRAY, which can take microscopy images without limitations in size as input. SPRAY was furthermore applied to perform systematic simulations for artificially roughened and computer-generated surfaces. A clear result was that the governing parameter for description of the sputtering behaviour is the mean value of the surface inclination angle distribution, rather than the commonly used root mean square roughness. Our simulations show that this parameter is universally applicable for a wide range of different surface structures.

Tungsten Oxide/Reduced Graphene Oxide Aerogel with Low-Content Platinum as High-Performance Electrocatalyst for Hydrogen Evolution Reaction

Li, Y.; Jiang, K.; Yang, J.; Zheng, Y.; Hübner, R.; Ou, Z.; Dong, X.; He, L.; Wang, H.; Li, J.; Sun, Y.; Lu, X.; Zhuang, X.; Zheng, Z.; Liu, W.

Designing cost-effective, highly active, and durable platinum (Pt)-based electrocatalysts is a crucial endeavor in electrochemical hydrogen evolution
reaction (HER). Herein, the low-content Pt (0.8 wt%)/tungsten oxide/reduced graphene oxide aerogel (LPWGA) electrocatalyst with excellent HER activity and durability is developed by employing a tungsten oxide/reduced graphene oxide aerogel (WGA) obtained from a facile solvothermal process as a support, followed by electrochemical deposition of Pt nanoparticles. The WGA support with abundant oxygen vacancies and hierarchical pores plays the roles of anchoring the Pt nanoparticles, supplying continuous mass transport and electron transfer channels, and modulating the surface electronic state of Pt, which endow the LPWGA with both high HER activity and durability. Even under a low loading of 0.81 μgPt cm-2, the LPWGA exhibits a high HER activity with an overpotential of 42 mV at 10 mA cm-2, an excellent stability under 10000-cycle cyclic voltammetry and 40 h chronopotentiometry at 10 mA cm-2, a low Tafel slope (30 mV dec-1), and a high turnover frequency of 29.05 s-1 at η = 50 mV, which is much superior to the commercial Pt/C and the low-content Pt/reduced graphene oxide aerogel. This work provides a new strategy to design high-performance Pt-based electrocatalysts with greatly reduced use of Pt.

Development and preliminary evaluation of [18F]JHU94620-d8 for PET imaging of cannabinoid receptors type 2

Moldovan, R. P.

The development PET radioligands for imaging of the cannabinoid type 2 receptors (CB2R) has been intensively explored due to their upregulation in various pathological conditions [1]. Recently, we reported the development of [18F]JHU94620 [2], however, this radioligand suffered from low metabolic stability in vivo. Here, we describe the development of the deuterated analogues [18F]JHU94620-d4 and -d8 as well as their biological evaluation (Figure 1). The precursors for radiofluorination were obtained by coupling 4,5-dimethylthiazol-ylidene-2,2,3,3-tetramethylcyclopropane-1-carboxamide with either d4 or d8 1,4-butanediol-bistosylate and radiofluorinated in the presence of Kryptand K2.2.2. and K2CO3. [18F]JHU94620-d4 and -d8 were obtained in 10% radiochemical yield and >99% radiochemical purity. The fraction of radiometabolites was quantified in mice plasma, brain and spleen of CD1 mice at 30 min p.i. Both [18F]JHU94620-d4 and -d8 demonstrated an improved metabolic stability with 80% intact radioligand detected in the brain vs. 36% for [18F]JHU94620. The CB2 affinity and specificity of [18F]JHU94620-d8 was determined by in vitro binding experiments and a KD(rCB2) of 0.36 nM was determined. Additionally, we evaluated the [18F]JHU94620-d8 uptake by PET-studies into the spleen of healthy rats and in a rat model carrying an adeno-associated viral (AAV2/7) vector expressing hCB2R(D80N) at high densities in the right striatum (hCB2-rs) [3, 4]. Our PET study with [18F]JHU94620-d8 revealed a rCB2 specific uptake into the spleen (AUC0-30min = 33 vs. 17 SUV min after blocking with GW405833). In the hCB2-rs model we could show a target specific uptake of [18F]JHU94620-d8 with a constant SUV of 6.7±0.3 from 6 to 60 min p.i. and an SUVr (right striatum-to-cerebellum) of 43±7at 60 min p.i., as well as a reversible binding in displacement studies. Thus, [18F]JHU94620-d8 is a new PET tracer with improved metabolic stability and excellent ability to image the CB2 receptors in-vivo. Its further evaluation is underway.

Tests of the detector system for the Stopping Target Monitor of the MU2E experiment in a high flux pulsed gamma beam

Alvarez, C.; Chen, J.; Edmonds, A.; Ferrari, A.; Huang, S.; Keshavarzi, A.; Knodel, O.; Koltick, D.; Lancaster, M.; Miller, J. P.; Müller, S.; Popp, J. L.; Rachamin, R.; Simic, M.; Tickle, S.; Ufer, R.; Voigt, M.

This dataset contains data generated with LaBr and Nal detector (DSPEC and oszilloscope data) at the gELBE beam. The gELBE pulsed gamma beam to test the detector system for the Stopping Target Monitor of the MU2E experiment. The gELBE pulsed gamma beam with narrow pulses set to about 600 kHz repetition rate - the choice of the ELBE CW mode with micropulses at 406 kHz or 812.5 kHz is ideal in our case- is the unique facility in the world suited to study the performance of the Stopping Target Monitor detector of the Mu2e Experiment. The STM monitor has the crucial role to normalize the charged lepton flavor muon conversion rate in the Mu2e experiment. The ability to operate at high rate in presence of background is crucial. We have at ELBE the unique possibility to validate the final methodology that will be employed by the STM detector.

Synthesis and Pharmacological Evaluation of 1,8-Naphythyridin-2(1H)-one-3-carboxamides Derivatives as Cannabinoid Receptor Type 2 (CB2R) Ligands

Kaur, S.

The primary aim of the present work was to develop fluorinated containing CB2R
ligands based on the lead compound 26 (Figure 10), reported by Lucchesi et al. with
a binding affinity of Ki(CB2R)< 0.67 nM and Ki(CB1R)>5140 nM [91]. Although the
lead compound 26 had a remarkable binding activity it has rather unfavorable
pharmacological properties (cLogP = 4.99 and MW = 459.52 g/mol). Most of the
compounds with cLogP>5 and MW >500 g/mol have poor absorption due to low
solubility and are also unable to cross BBB resulting in poor pharmacokinetics.
Therefore, this master thesis was aimed to synthesize new derivatives based on the
lead compound 26 with modifications to retain or further increase the CB2R binding
affinity and selectivity and improve the pharmacological properties by introducing
substituents containing electronegative atom (fluoro pyridine, fluoro alkoxy, etc) to
make them more polar and thereby also reducing their molecular weight. In general,
the research work was primarily aimed to variously functionalize at N-1 position. In
addition, the newly derivatized compounds should contain a fluorine atom at a
position that allows a facile incorporation of the 18F-label. The cLogP of the planned
derivatives was calculated (ChemDraw 19.0 software) to analyze the effect of
various substituents on the lipophilicity. The substitution of furyl group with a Br at
C-6 position was aimed to increase the hydrophilicity of the lead compound 26
leading to the bromo substituted derivatives with cLogP < 4.5. In order to further
decrease the lipophilicity of the lead compound (26), the replacement of the pfluorobenzyl
at N-1 position with pyridine (cLogP= 3.57) and alkoxy derivatives
(cLogP= 3.72) was planned to synthesize new derivatives (X= R1: furyl, R2:
fluoropyridine, fluoroalkoxy).

Terahertz pump-probe of liquid water at 12.3 THz

Novelli, F.; Hoberg, C.; Adams, E. M.; Klopf, J. M.; Havenith, M.

The dynamical complexity of the hydrogen-bonded water network can be investigated with intense Terahertz (THz) spectroscopy, which can drive the liquid into the nonlinear response regime and probe anharmonicity effects. Here we report single-color and polarization-dependent pump-probe experiments at 12.3 THz on liquid water, exciting the librational mode. By comparing results obtained on a static sample and a free-flowing water jet, we are able to disentangle the distinct contributions by thermal, acoustic, and nonlinear optical effects. We show that the transient transmission by the static water layer on a time scale of hundreds of microseconds can be described by thermal (slow) and acoustic (temperature-dependent) effects. In addition, during pump probe overlap we observe an anisotropic nonlinear optical response. This nonlinear signal is more prominent in the liquid jet than in the static cell, where temperature and density perturbations are more pronounced. Our measurements confirm that the THz excitation resonates with the rotationally-damped motion of water molecules, resulting in enhanced transient anisotropy. This model can be used to explain the non-linear response of water in the frequency range between about 1 and 20 THz.

Ginzburg effect in a dielectric medium with dispersion and dissipation

Lang, S.; Sauerbrey, R.; Schützhold, R.; Unruh, W.

As a quantum analog of Cherenkov radiation, an inertial photon detector moving through a medium with constant refractive index n may perceive the electromagnetic quantum fluctuations as real photons if its velocity v exceeds the medium speed of light c/n. For dispersive Hopfield type media, we find this Ginzburg effect to extend to much lower v because the phase velocity of light is very small near the medium resonance. In this regime, however, dissipation effects become important. Via an extended Hopfield model, we present a consistent treatment of quantum fluctuations in dispersive and dissipative media and derive the Ginzburg effect in such systems. Finally, we propose an experimental test.

Formation and time dynamics of hydrogen-induced vacancies in nickel

Chiari, L.; Kojima, K.; Endo, Y.; Teshigahara, H.; Butterling, M.; Liedke, M. O.; Hirschmann, E.; Elsherif, A. G. A.; Wagner, A.; Fujinami, M.

The formation and time dynamics of hydrogen-induced defects in nickel by room temperature aging was investigated by positron annihilation spectroscopy. Low temperature conventional positron annihilation lifetime spectroscopy and positron lifetime measurements using a high-flux positron beam evidenced the formation of a large number of monovacancy-level defects simply by hydrogen addition at room temperature. Low-temperature coincidence Doppler broadening measurements proved that hydrogen was trapped and bound to these vacancies during the hydrogen charge. Room temperature aging, i.e. below the stage III temperature in Ni, and the concomitant hydrogen desorption induced the agglomeration of those monovacancies into large vacancy clusters which remained even after all the hydrogen had desorbed and hydrides had disappeared. These results demonstrated that vacancy-hydrogen complexes were induced in Ni only by hydrogen charging and that hydrogen has a primary role in the formation and stabilization of vacancies even at room temperature.

SIMS analytics of quartz

Renno, A.

Secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS), as a high-precision, spatially resolved analytical method, is an alternative to the standard LA-ICP-MS and EPMA methods of quartz analysis. Quartz, with its "notoriously low" trace element contents, presented a welcome challenge from the beginning of the routine application of SIMS methods in mineralogy. In the course of instrument development, there has been an increasingly intensive instrumental differentiation of SIMS instruments. Today, it is possible to analyze almost all naturally occurring elements (H-U), isotope ratios as well as molecular ions and molecular fragments with resolutions from the millimeter to the nanometer range using SIMS. In principle, this allows its use in solving a variety of scientific problems closely related to quartz. Examples are the clarification of crystallochemical questions of the incorporation of different ions into the quartz lattice, questions of element diffusion (e.g. Li, Ti or H) in quartz, the determination of causes for certain spectroscopic features (e.g. CL or EPR), the reconstruction of formation conditions via isotope ratios (O, Si, Li or H), the application of geothermometers (e.g. TitaniQ), the mechanical behavior of quartz as a function of hydrogen content, provenance analyses for natural rocks but also archaeological artifacts, exploration-related questions for quartz deposits and in particular for deposits in which quartz occurs as a genetic-critical accompanying mineral, up to problems of quality testing and quality assurance of high-purity quartz and the engineering evaluation of processing technologies in particular flotation for quartz extraction.
The main limitation of SIMS is the extreme matrix dependence of secondary ion yield. This requires the use of meticulously characterized reference materials (Audétat et al., 2015). New promising developments in this field will be presented (Nachlas, 2016; Wu et al., 2019).
New instrumental developments such as the positive ion SIMS-SSAMS (Grabowski et al., 2019), the Super-SIMS (Rugel et al., 2016) or SIMS analysis in specially modified helium microscopes (Wirtz et al., 2019) and associated enhanced analytical capabilities of quartz will be presented.

Temperature determination during Flash Lamp Annealing

Begeza, V.; Rebohle, L.; Schumann, T.

Flash lamp annealing (FLA) is a modern technology for the thermal treatment of materials which currently opens up new application areas. During FLA, an intense pulse of light with a pulse duration of milliseconds and below is applied to the surface of a material. In contrast to traditional methods like furnace annealing, temperature now strongly depends on the material properties and the thickness of the sample. In addition, the short time scale leads to a temperature distribution over depth and makes direct temperature measurements very challenging.
In this work we first review in brief the existing possibilities for a direct temperature measurement during FLA. The main part presents our own concept which is a combination of direct measurements, calibration and thermodynamic simulation. The latter point is of special interest as it allows to get information about the temperature distribution within the material, provided that the relevant material parameters are known. Finally, the impact of such temperature distributions on physical processes like diffusion, crystallization and phase formation is discussed.

Restoring betatron phase coherence in a beam-loaded laser-wakefield accelerator

Köhler, A.; Pausch, R.; Bussmann, M.; Couperus Cabadağ, J. P.; Debus, A.; Krämer, J. M.; Schöbel, S.; Zarini, O.; Schramm, U.; Irman, A.

Matched beam loading in laser wakefield acceleration (LWFA), characterizing the state of flattening the accelerating electric field along the bunch, leads to the minimization of energy spread at high bunch charges. Here, we experimentally demonstrate by independently controlling injected charge and accelerating gradients, using the self-truncated ionization injection scheme, that minimal energy spread coincides with a reduction of the normalized beam divergence. With the simultaneous confirmation of the micrometer-small beam radius at the plasma exit, deduced from betatron radiation spectroscopy, we attribute this effect to the minimization of chromatic betatron decoherence. These findings are supported by rigorous three-dimensional particle-in-cell simulations tracking self-consistently particle trajectories from injection, acceleration until beam extraction to vacuum. We conclude that beam-loaded LWFA enables highest longitudinal and transverse phase space densities.

Not just a background: pH buffers do interact with lanthanide ions – a Europium(III) case study

Mandal, P.; Kretzschmar, J.; Drobot, B.

The interaction between Eu(III) ion and different pH buffers, popular in biology and biochemistry viz. HEPES, PIPES, MES, MOPS, and TRIS have been studied by solution nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR) and time-resolved laser-induced fluorescence spectroscopy (TRLFS) techniques. The Good’s buffers reveal non-negligible interaction with Eu(III) as determined from their complex stability constants, where the sites of interaction are the morpholine and piperazine nitrogen atoms, respectively. In contrast, TRIS buffer shows practically no affinity towards Eu(III). Therefore, when investigating lanthanides, TRIS buffer should be preferred over Good’s buffers.

Controlled and deterministic creation of synthetic antiferromagnetic domains by focused ion beam irradiation

Samad, F.; Hlawacek, G.; Arekapudi, S. S. P. K.; Xu, X.; Koch, L.; Lenz, M.; Hellwig, O.

We study layered synthetic antiferromagnets (SAFs) with out-of-plane interface anisotropy, where the layer-wise antiferromagnetic (AF)
alignment is induced by interlayer exchange coupling (IEC). By applying low energy He+ focused ion beam irradiation to the SAF, a depth-dependent
reduction of the IEC and anisotropy can be achieved due to layer intermixing. As a consequence, after irradiation, a specific field
reversal sequence of the SAF is energetically preferred. When tuning the pristine SAF to exhibit an inverted field reversal, we are thus able to
create AF domains in the irradiated regions. When irradiated with a fluence gradient, these AF domains can be further deterministically
manipulated by an external magnetic field. Among other applications, this could be utilized for engineering a controllable and local magnetic
stray field landscape, for example, at AF domain walls, within the otherwise stray field free environment provided by the SAF.

DYN3D and CTF Coupling within a Multiscale and Multiphysics Software Development (Part I)

Davies, S.; Litskevich, D.; Rohde, U.; Detkina, A.; Merk, B.; Bryce, P.; Levers, A.; Ravindra, V.

Understanding and optimizing the relation between nuclear reactor components or physical phenomena allows us to improve the economics and safety of nuclear reactors, deliver new nuclear reactor designs, and educate nuclear staff. Such relation in the case of the reactor core is described by coupled reactor physics as heat transfer depends on energy production while energy production depends on heat transfer with almost none of the available codes providing full coupled reactor physics at the fuel pin level. A Multiscale and Multiphysics nuclear software development between NURESIM and CASL for LWRs has been proposed for the UK. Improved coupled reactor physics at the fuel pin level can be simulated through coupling nodal codes such as DYN3D as well as subchannel codes such as CTF. In this journal article, the first part of the DYN3D and CTF coupling within the Multiscale and Multiphysics software development is presented to evaluate all inner iterations within one outer iteration to provide partially verified improved coupled reactor physics at
the fuel pin level. Such verification has proven that the DYN3D and CTF coupling provides improved feedback distributions over the DYN3D coupling as crossflow and turbulent mixing are present in the former.

Modulated rotating waves and triadic resonances in spherical fluid systems: The case of magnetized spherical Couette flow

Garcia Gonzalez, F.; Giesecke, A.; Stefani, F.

The existence of triadic resonances in the magnetized spherical Couette system is related to the development of modulated rotating waves, which are quasiperiodic flows understood in terms of bifurcation theory in systems with symmetry. In contrast to previous studies in spherical geometry, the resonant modes are not inertial waves but related to the radial jet instability, which is strongly equatorially antisymmetric. We propose a general framework in which triadic resonances are generated through successive Hopf bifurcations from the base state. The study relies on an accurate frequency analysis of different modes of the flow, for solutions belonging to two different bifurcation scenarios. The azimuthal and latitudinal nonlinear coupling among the resonant modes is analyzed and interpreted using spherical harmonics, and the results are compared with previous studies in spherical geometry.

Size-Tunable Gold Aerogels: A Durable and Misfocus-Tolerant 3D Substrate for Multiplex SERS Detection

Zhou, L.; Peng, Y.; Zhang, N.; Du, R.; Hübner, R.; Wen, X.; Li, D.; Hu, Y.; Eychmüller, A.

The research on surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) continuously draws wide attention because of its high detection sensitivity. However, the commonly investigated 2D SERS substrates cannot fully utilize the 3D active focal volume and require a tight focus on the correct plane, retarding signal enhancement and flexible use. Here, self-supported gold aerogels of centimeter-dimension with tunable ligament sizes are designed as 3D SERS substrates, featuring hot spots throughout the entire network. Unveiling a universal ligament-size-effect, the optimized gold aerogel showcases much larger enhancement factors compared to a 8 nm Au film toward dyes, pesticides, and carcinogens (up to 109). Aside from an excellent reusability and an exceptional stability (> 1 month), an outstanding misfocus tolerance (>300 μm along the z-axis) is also demonstrated for such aerogel-based SERS substrates for multiplex detection. This work may expand the application scope of metal aerogels and lay the foundation for designing next-generation 3D SERS substrates.

The Al Doping Effect on Epitaxial (In,Mn)As Dilute Magnetic Semiconductors Prepared by Ion Implantation and Pulsed Laser Melting

Yuan, Y.; Xie, Y.; Yuan, N.; Wang, M.; Heller, R.; Kentsch, U.; Zhai, T.; Wang, X.

One of the most attractive characteristics of diluted ferromagnetic semiconductors is the possibility to modulate their electronic and ferromagnetic properties, coupled by itinerant holes through various means. A prominent example is the modification of Curie temperature and magnetic anisotropy by ion implantation and pulsed laser melting in III–V diluted magnetic semiconductors. In this study, to the best of our knowledge, we performed, for the first time, the co-doping of (In,Mn)As diluted magnetic semiconductors by Al by co-implantation subsequently combined with a pulsed laser annealing technique. Additionally, the structural and magnetic properties were systematically investigated by gradually raising the Al implantation fluence. Unexpectedly, under a well-preserved epitaxial structure, all samples presented weaken Curie temperature, magnetization, as well as uniaxial magnetic anisotropies when more aluminum was involved. Such a phenomenon is probably due to enhanced carrier localization introduced by Al or the suppression of substitutional Mn atoms.

Phase evolution of Te-hyperdoped Si upon furnace annealing

Shaikh, M. S.; Wang, M.; Hübner, R.; Liedke, M. O.; Butterling, M.; Solonenko, D.; Madeira, T. I.; Li, Z.; Xie, Y.; Hirschmann, E.; Wagner, A.; Zahn, D. R. T.; Helm, M.; Zhou, S.

Si hyperdoped with chalcogens via ion implantation and pulsed laser melting is known to exhibit strong room-temperature sub-bandgap photoresponse. As a thermodynamically metastable system, an impairment of the optoelectronic properties in hyperdoped Si materials occurs upon subsequent high-temperature thermal treatment (>500 °C). The substitutional Te atoms that cause the sub-bandgap absorption are removed from the Si matrix to form Te-related complexes, which are electrically and optically inactive. In this work, we explore the formation of defects in Te-hyperdoped Si layers which leads to the electrical deactivation upon furnace annealing through the analysis of optical and microstructural properties as well as positron annihilation lifetime spectroscopy. Particularly, Te-rich clusters are observed in samples thermally annealed at temperatures reaching 950 °C and above. Combined with polarized Raman analysis and transmission electron microscopy, the observed crystalline clusters are suggested to be Si2Te3.

Strain-induced switching between noncollinear and collinear spin configuration in magnetic Mn5Ge3 films

Xie, Y.; Yuan, Y.; Birowska, M.; Zhang, C.; Cao, L.; Wang, M.; Grenzer, J.; Kriegner, D.; Doležal, P.; Zeng, Y.-J.; Zhang, X.; Helm, M.; Zhou, S.; Prucnal, S.

We report the temperature-dependent magnetic and structural properties of epitaxial Mn5Ge3 thin films grown
on Ge substrates. Utilizing density-functional theory (DFT) calculations and various experimental methods, we
reveal mechanisms governing the switching between collinear and noncollinear spin configuration in Mn5Ge3.
The Mn atoms in Mn5Ge3 occupy two distinct Wyckoff positions with fourfold (Mn1) and sixfold (Mn2)
multiplicity. The DFT calculations reveal that below a critical distance of approximately 3.002 Å the coupling
between Mn2 atoms is antiferromagnetic (AFM) while ferromagnetic (FM) above that critical distance. The FM
coupling between Mn1 atoms is weakly affected by the strain. The observed noncollinear spin configuration is
due to the coexistence of AFM and FM coupling at low temperatures. The findings give insight in developing
strain-controlled spintronic devices.

Interfacial Synthesis of Layer-Oriented 2D Conjugated Metal-Organic Framework Films toward Directional Charge Transport

Wang, Z.; Walter, L. S.; Wang, M.; Petkov, P. S.; Liang, B.; Qi, H.; Ngan Nguyen, N.; Hambsch, M.; Zhong, H.; Wang, M.; Park, S.; Renn, L.; Watanabe, K.; Taniguchi, T.; Mannsfeld, S. C. B.; Heine, T.; Kaiser, U.; Zhou, S.; Weitz, T. R.; Feng, X.; Dong, R.

The development of layer-oriented two-dimensional conjugated metal-organic frameworks (2D c-MOFs) enables access to direct charge transport, dial-in lateral/vertical electronic devices, and the unveiling of transport mechanisms but remains a significant synthetic challenge. Here we report the novel synthesis of metal-phthalocyanine-based p-type semiconducting 2D c-MOF films (Cu2[PcM-O8], M = Cu or Fe) with an unprecedented edge-on layer orientation at the air/water interface. The edge-on structure formation is guided by the preorganization of metal-phthalocyanine ligands, whose basal plane is perpendicular to the water surface due to their π-πinteraction and hydrophobicity. Benefiting from the unique layer orientation, we are able to investigate the lateral and vertical conductivities by DC methods and thus demonstrate an anisotropic charge transport in the resulting Cu2[PcCu-O8] film. The directional conductivity studies combined with theoretical calculation identify that the intrinsic conductivity is dominated by charge transfer along the interlayer pathway. Moreover, a macroscopic (cm2 size) Hall-effect measurement reveals a Hall mobility of ∼4.4 cm2 V-1 s-1 for the obtained Cu2[PcCu-O8] film. The orientation control in semiconducting 2D c-MOFs will enable the development of various optoelectronic applications and the exploration of unique transport properties.

Physicochemical constraints on indium-, tin-, germanium-, gallium-, gold-, and tellurium-bearing mineralizations in the Pefka and St Philippos polymetallic vein- and breccia-type deposits, Greece

Voudouris, P.; Repstock, A.; Spry, P. G.; Frenzel, M.; Mavrogonatos, C.; Keith, M.; Tarantola, A.; Melfos, V.; Tombros, S.; Zhai, D.; Cook, N. J.; Ciobanu, C. L.; Schaarschmidt, A.; Rieck, B.; Kolitsch, U.; Falkenberg, J. J.

The Pefka Cu-Au-Te-In-Se and nearby St Philippos Pb-Zn-Bi-Sn-Ge-Ga-In vein- and breccia-type deposits in western Thrace, Greece, display strong similarities, but also differences in terms of mineralization style, ore mineralogy, and chemistry, and host rock compositions. The Pefka mineralization consists of two crosscutting vein systems with high sulfidation (HS)- and intermediate-sulfidation (IS) assemblages hosted by andesitic lavas and is unusually enriched in In (up to 700 ppm), Te (>1000 ppm), Se (>100 ppm), and Cu (>1 wt%). The main In-carriers are roquesite (CuInS2) and In-bearing “tennantite-(Cu)” and Cu-rich “tennantite-(In)” which contains up to 6.5 wt% In, substituting into the C site. Roquesite is associated with enargite and arsenosulvanite/colusite, as part of the HS assemblage at Pefka. Selenium-bearing galena and a large suite of tellurides including calaverite, sylvanite, petzite, hessite, kostovite, empressite, tellurantimony, and coloradoite, in addition to native tellurium, account for the marked tellurium and selenium enrichment in the ores from Pefka. Tellurides and native gold at Pefka accompany the precipitation of Te-bearing minerals of the tetrahedrite group, such as “stibiogoldfieldite” and “arsenogoldfieldite”, and Cu-excess varieties of tetrahedrite and tennantite. However, the bulk of telluride deposition is associated with normal, fully substituted tetrahedrite-tennantite varieties.

The St Philippos deposit is associated with a brecciated fault zone hosted by Eocene sandstones and Oligocene quartz-feldspar porphyry dikes. It is enriched in a large suite of incompatible elements, including Bi (>2000 ppm), Sn (>100 ppm), U (up to 200 ppm), Pb (>1 wt%), Zn (>1 wt%), Mo (up to 62 ppm), Ge (>100 ppm), Ga (up to 466 ppm) and In (up to 222 ppm), contrasting with the element suite defining the nearby Pefka deposit. The main carrier of In, Ga, and Ge is sphalerite (and wurtzite) with In-rich zones in sphalerite containing up to 6.1. wt% In. Germanium and Ga in sphalerite reach concentrations of up to 0.27 and 0.32 wt%, respectively. Sphalerite from the St Philippos deposit is extremely Fe-poor (<0.04 wt%), and is associated with an unusual suite of Sn-bearing sulfosalts (kësterite-stannite, Mn-bearing kësterite, unnamed Cu2MnSnS4), and enargite, marking an early HS event. Kësterite also hosts indium (up to 0.6 wt% In). Mn-bearing varieties of tennantite host inclusions of minor tellurides (e.g., hessite, altaite, and tsumoite) and formed later in the paragenetic sequence under transitional HS-IS and IS conditions.

Both deposits are characterized by early high-temperature (>300 °C) and HS fluid conditions, followed by IS assemblages as temperatures waned. Rhyolitic oxidized magmas are considered to be the sources of metals in the St Philippos deposit; however, their anomalous W, Sn, U, and Bi contents suggest a contamination by crustal rocks. The Cu-Au-Te signature of the Pefka deposit is compatible with a genetic relationship to less fractionated andesitic magmas, although a possible contribution of In from rhyolitic magmas could explain the high In contents of the ore. However, other factors, as for example different metal-deposition mechanisms resulting in metal zonation around causative porphyry centers at depth, may also account for the observed metal endowment in these two deposits. The Sn-Te-In-(Ge-Ga) element association at Pefka and St Philippos is unusual in that it has been previously reported from only a few other places in the world (e.g., Capillitas deposit, Argentina, and the Kawazu deposit, Japan). We conclude based on this exotic mineralization-style that the northeastern part of Greece represents an area of great potential for the exploitation of critical metals and metalloids.

The nELBE neutron time-of-flight facility

Beyer, R.; Junghans, A.; Kögler, T.; Schwengner, R.; Urlaß, S.; Wagner, A.

The neutron time-of-flight facility nELBE at Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf features the first photo-neutron source at a superconducting electron accelerator. The electrons are focused onto a liquid lead target to produce bremsstrahlung which in turn produces neutrons via photo-nuclear reactions. The emitted neutron spectrum ranges from about 10 keV up to 15 MeV with a source strength of above 10¹¹ neutrons per second. The very precise time structure of the accelerator with a bunch width of a few ps enables time-of-flight measurements at very short flight path and experiments to investigate the time response of novel detector concepts.
The high repetition rate of 100 to 400 kHz in combination with the low instantaneous flux and the absence of any moderating materials provide favorable background conditions.
The very flexible beam properties at nELBE enable a broad range of nuclear physics experiments. Examples for the versatility of nELBE will be presented: From transmission measurements and inelastic neutron scattering and fission experiments to determine nuclear reaction cross sections with relevance for fundamental nuclear physics, reactor safety calculations, nuclear transmutation or particle therapy to experiments to investigate the response of novel particle detectors e.g. for dark matter search experiments, nuclear instrumentation or the range verification in cancer treatment.

Timing of native metal-arsenide (Ag-Bi-Co-Ni-As±U) veins in continental rift zones – In situ U-Pb geochronology of carbonates from the Erzgebirge/Krušné Hory province

Guilcher, M.; Albert, R.; Gerdes, A.; Gutzmer, J.; Burisch, M.

Hydrothermal native metal-arsenide (five-element or Ag-Bi-Co-Ni-As±U) veins are a globally occurring mineralization style, which is particularly prevalent across Central Europe. Due to the limited amount of geochronological data available, the timing and the detailed geodynamic setting in which this mineralization style formed remains insufficiently understood. To fill this gap in knowledge, we applied innovative LA-ICP-MS U-Pb geochronology on carbonates from six districts in the Erzgebirge/Krušné Hory province of Germany and Czech Republic in order to constrain the timing of ore formation in the context of the geodynamic framework of Central Europe. In situ U-Pb ages of twelve samples, including dolomite-ankerite, calcite, and siderite coeval with Ni-Co-Fe-arsenides, range from ~129 to ~86 Ma. The ages of native metal-arsenide and fluorite-barite-Pb-Zn veins from the same occurrence (Annaberg-Buchholz district) are found to be consistent with each other, providing new and direct geochronological evidence that these two styles of mineralization are genetically related and may form coevally within one hydrothermal system. Complemented with available geochronological data from other occurrences, the formation of native metal-arsenide assemblage in Central Europe can be related to continental rifting affiliated with the Mesozoic opening of the Atlantic and Alpine Tethys Oceans (~200–100 Ma). The youngest age of ~86 Ma coincide with basin inversion associated with the onset of Alpine compressional tectonics, which most likely terminates the conditions favorable for the formation of native metal-arsenide mineralization in Europe. The onset of native metal-arsenide formation in proximal positions to the main rift axis starts at ~230–200 Ma (Penninic Alps, Anti-Atlas). In contrast, it occurs systematically later with increasing distance to the rift axis – namely at ~200–130 Ma in intermediate (Schwarzwald, Odenwald, Spessart) and ~140–86 Ma in distal (Erzgebirge, Harz) positions to the main rift axis.

Scale-dependent anisotropy, energy transfer and intermittency in bubble-laden turbulent flows

Ma, T.; Ott, B.; Fröhlich, J.; Bragg, A.

Data from Direct Numerical Simulations of disperse bubbly flows in a vertical channel are used
to study the effect of the bubbles on the carrier-phase turbulence. We developed a new method,
based on an extension of the barycentric map approach, that allows to quantify and visualize the
anisotropy and componentiality of the flow at any scale. Using this we found that the bubbles
significantly enhance anisotropy in the flow at all scales compared with the unladen case, and
that for some bubble cases, very strong anisotropy persists down to the smallest scales of the
flow. The strongest anisotropy observed was for the cases involving small bubbles. Concerning
the energy transfer among the scales of the flow, our results indicate that for the bubble-laden
cases, the energy transfer is from large to small scales, just as for the unladen case. However,
there is evidence of an upscale transfer when considering the transfer of energy associated with
particular components of the velocity field. Although the direction of the energy transfer is the
same with and without the bubbles, the behaviour of the energy transfer is significantly modified
by the bubbles, suggesting that the bubbles play a strong role in altering the activity of the
nonlinear term in the flow. The skewness of the velocity increments also reveal a strong effect of
the bubbles on the flow, changing both its sign and magnitude compared with the single-phase
case. We also consider the normalized forms of the fourth-order structure functions, and the
results reveal that the introduction of bubbles into the flow strongly enhances intermittency in the
dissipation range, but suppresses it at larger scales. This strong enhancement of the dissipation
scale intermittency has significant implications for understanding how the bubbles might modify
the mixing properties of turbulent flows.

Implementing Heterogeneous Crystal Surface Reactivity in Reactive Transport Simulations: The Example of Calcite Dissolution

Karimzadeh, L.; Fischer, C.

Both surface reactivity and fluid dynamics control the dissolution kinetics of crystalline material. In this study, we performed a 3D reactive transport simulation to investigate the impact of surface topography heterogeneity superimposed to fluid transport heterogeneity on the dissolution rate of calcite. The
model simulates the chemical reaction of calcite dissolution, solute transport, and crystal surface geometry evolution. Importantly, we introduce heterogeneous surface reactivity into the reactive transport simulation. We test the surface slope factor as a proxy value for the intrinsic surface reactivity of dissolving crystal surface nanotopographies. Experimental data sets collected using vertical scanning interferometry validate this approach. The novel parametrization allows for the simulation of surface-controlled heterogeneous reactivity in reactive transport simulations of mineral surface dissolution.

The M4F project brings together the fusion and fission materials communities working on the prediction of radiation damage production and evolution and its effects on the mechanical behaviour of irradiated ferritic/martensitic (F/M) steels. It is a multidisciplinary project in which several different experimental and computational materials science tools are integrated to understand and model the complex phenomena associated with the formation and evolution of irradiation induced defects and their effects on the macroscopic behaviour of the target materials. In particular the project focuses on two specific aspects: (1) To develop physical understanding and predictive models of the origin and consequences of localised deformation under irradiation in F/M steels; (2) To develop good practices and possibly advance towards the definition of protocols for the use of ion irradiation as a tool to evaluate radiation effects on materials. Nineteen modelling codes across different scales are being used and developed and an experimental validation programme based on the examination of materials irradiated with neutrons and ions is being carried out. The project enters now its 4th year and is close to delivering high-quality results. This paper overviews the work performed so far within the project, highlighting its impact for fission and fusion materials science.

Metal–Insulator Transition via Ion Irradiation in Epitaxial La0.7Sr0.3MnO3-δ Thin Films

Cao, L.; Herklotz, A.; Rata, D.; Yin, C.; Petracic, O.; Kentsch, U.; Helm, M.; Zhou, S.

Complex oxides provide rich physics related to ionic defects. For the proper tuning of functionalities in oxide heterostructures, it is highly desired to develop fast, effective and low temperature routes for the dynamic modification of defect concentration and distribution. In this work, we report on the use of helium-implantation to efficiently control the vacancy profiles in epitaxial La0.7Sr0.3MnO3-δ thin films. The viability of this approach is supported by lattice expansion in the out-of-plane lattice direction and dramatic change in physical properties, i.e., a transition from ferromagnetic metallic to antiferromagnetic insulating. In particular, a significant increase of resistivity up to four orders of magnitude is evidenced at room temperature, upon implantation of highly energetic He-ions. Our result offers an attractive means for tuning the emergent physical properties of oxide thin films, via strong coupling between strain, defects and valence.

Layer-Dependent Band Gaps of Platinum-Dichalcogenides

Li, J.; Kolekar, S.; Ghorbani Asl, M.; Lehnert, T.; Biskupek, J.; Kaiser, U.; Krasheninnikov, A.; Batzill, M.

Owing to the relatively strong inter-layer interaction, the platinum-dichalcogenides exhibit tunability of their electronic properties by controlling the number of layers. Both PtSe2 and PtTe2 display a semi-metal to semi-conductor transition as they are reduced to bi- or single-layer. The value of the fundamental band gap, however, has been inferred only from density functional theory (DFT) calculations, which are notoriously challenging, as different methods give different results, and currently there is no experimental data. Here we determine the band gap as a function of the number of layers by local scanning tunneling spectroscopy on MBE-grown PtSe2 and PtTe2 islands. We find band gaps of 1.8 eV and 0.6 eV for mono- and bi-layer PtSe2, respectively, and 0.5 eV for monolayer PtTe2. Tri-layer PtSe2 and bilayer PtTe2 are semi-metallic. The experimental data are compared to DFT calculations carried out at different levels of theory. The calculated band gaps may differ significantly from the experimental values, emphasizing the importance of the experimental work. We further show that the variations in the calculated fundamental band gap in bilayer PtSe2 are related to the computed separation of the layers, which depends on the choice of the van der Waals functional. This sensitivity of the band gap to inter-layer separation also suggests that the gap can be tuned by uniaxial stress and our simulations indicate that only modest pressures are required for a significant reduction of the gap, making Pt-dichalcogenides suitable materials for pressure-sensing.

Elektrische Energiespeicherung mit Flüssigmetallen und Salzschmelzen

Weier, T.; Horstmann, G. M.; Landgraf, S.; Personnettaz, P.; Stefani, F.; Weber, N.

Stationäre Elektroenergiespeicher können helfen, momentane Differenzen von Elektrizitätsangebot und -nachfrage zu balancieren. Mit zunehmender Nutzung volatiler Stromquellen wird diese Aufgabe wichtiger. Dabei stehen verschiedene Speichertechnologien untereinander,
aber auch mit Alternativen im Wettbewerb.
Flüssigmetallbatterien sind Hochtemperaturspeicher. Sie basieren
auf der stabilen Dichteschichtung eines Alkalimetalls, einer Salzschmelze und eines Schwermetalls. Vermittelt durch die hohe Betriebstemperatur, die über den Schmelztemperaturen der einzelnen Phasen liegen
muss, verlaufen Grenzflächenreaktionen und Transportvorgänge sehr
rasch, was in hohen Strom- und Leistungsdichten resultiert. Der vollständig flüssige Zellinhalt ermöglicht einerseits eine konzeptionell einfache Skalierbarkeit auf Zellebene, die sehr günstige energiebezogene
Investitionskosten verspricht. Andererseits gewinnen durch den flüssige Aggregatzustand strömungsmechanische Vorgänge, die eng an den
Ladungstransport und -übergang gekoppelt sind, stark an Bedeutung.
Der Vortrag wird sowohl ausgewählte physikalische Phänomene in
Flüssigmetallbatterien vorstellen, als auch ihre mögliche Rolle in einem
zukünftigen Energiesystem diskutieren.

Rapid synthesis of gold-palladium core-shell aerogels for selective and robust electrochemical CO2 reduction

Du, R.; Jin, W.; Wu, H.; Hübner, R.; Zhou, L.; Xue, G.; Hu, Y.; Eychmüller, A.

Noble metal aerogels (NMAs), one class of the youngest members in the aerogel family, have drawn increasing attention in the last decade. Featuring the high catalytic activity of noble metals and a 3D self-supported porous network of the aerogels, they have displayed profound potential for electrocatalysis. However, considerable challenges reside in the rapid fabrication of NMAs with a well-tailored architecture, constraining the manipulation of their electrochemical properties for optimized performance. Here, a disturbance-assisted dynamic shelling strategy is developed, generating self-supported Au–Pd core–shell gels within 10 min. Based on suitable activation and desorption energies of the involved species as suggested by theoretical calculations, the Au–Pd core–shell aerogel manifests outstanding CO selectivity and stability at low overpotential (faradaic efficiency > 98% at -0.5 V vs. RHE over 12 hours) for the electrochemical CO2 reduction reaction (CO2RR). The present strategy offers a new perspective to facilely design architecture-specified high-performance electrocatalysts for the CO2RR.

Integrated complementary inverters and ring oscillators based on vertical-channel dual-base organic thin-film transistors

Guo, E.; Xing, S.; Dollinger, F.; Hübner, R.; Wang, S.-J.; Wu, Z.; Leo, K.; Kleemann, H.

Lateral-channel dual-gate organic thin-film transistors have been used in pseudo complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) inverters to control switching voltage. However, their relatively long channel lengths, combined with the low charge carrier mobility of organic semiconductors, typically leads to slow inverter operation. Vertical-channel dual-gate organic thin-film transistors are a promising alternative because of their short channel lengths, but the lack of appropriate p- and n-type devices has limited the development of complementary inverter circuits. Here, we show that organic vertical n-channel permeable single- and dual-base transistors, and vertical p-channel permeable base transistors can be used to create integrated complementary inverters and ring oscillators. The vertical dual-base transistors enable switching voltage shift and gain enhancement. The inverters exhibit small switching time constants at 10 MHz, and the seven-stage complementary ring oscillators exhibit short signal propagation delays of 11 ns per stage at a supply voltage of 4 V.

Evidence of collision-induced resuspension of microscopic particles from a monolayer deposit

Banari, A.; Henry, C.; Fank Eidt, R. H.; Pierre, L.; Klaus, Z.; Hampel, U.; Lecrivain, G.

The present Letter addresses the resuspension of microscopic glass particles from a monolayer bed into a turbulent gas flow. With an intermediate surface coverage, here set to about 10% of the field of view, we report two distinct detachment mechanisms. At relatively low flow velocities, few loosely adhering particles move on the wall to eventually collide with neighboring particles resulting in a clustered resuspension. At higher fluid velocities, mostly individual particles resuspend due to their interaction with the turbulent flow. The resuspension curve, showing the remaining particle fraction as a function of the flow velocity, exhibits a strong bimodal character.

A stable home: Autocorrelated Kernel Density Estimated home ranges of the critically endangered Elongated Tortoise

Montano, Y.; Michael Marshall, B.; Ward, M.; Simoes Silva, I. M.; Artchawakom, T.; Waengsothorn, S.; Strine, C. T.

Home range is a fundamental concept in ecology used to describe animal space use over their lifetimes. Numerous studies use a variety of metrics to quantify home range; however, most of these treat spatial data inappropriately. Here we re-analyse a publicly available data-set, collected by the authors of this study, using a relatively novel and appropriate home range metric Autocorrelated Kernel Density Estimators (AKDE). Our data includes the movements of 17 Elongated Tortoises (Indotestudo elongata; 12 females, 5 males) located on average once every three days for an average duration of 353.76 ±33.10 days. We found 14 of 17 individuals appear to be occupying a stable home range (using variograms to determine range residency). We made use of AKDEs bias-mitigating measures to counteract the low effective sample sizes stemming from low temporal resolution radio-tracking data. The average AKDE home range for all 14 individuals with range residency was 44.81 ±10.44 ha. Bayesian Regression Models suggest considerable overlap between male and female home range estimates despite males being physically larger than females in both mass and carapace length. These home range estimates have the added utility of being comparable with other studies, less susceptible to errors from a suboptimal tracking regime, and are optimised with code and data for inclusion in future meta-analyses.

Lots of movement, little progress: A review of reptile home range literature

Crane​, M.; Simoes Silva, I. M.; Marshall, B. M.; Strine​, C. T.

Reptiles are the most species-rich terrestrial vertebrate group with a broad diversity of life history traits. Biotelemetry is an essential methodology for studying reptiles as it compensates for several limitations when studying their natural history. We evaluated trends in terrestrial reptile spatial ecology studies focusing upon quantifying home ranges for the past twenty years. We assessed 290 English-language reptile home range studies published from 2000–2019 via a structured literature review investigating publications’ study location, taxonomic group, methodology, reporting, and analytical techniques. Substantial biases remain in both location and taxonomic groups in the literature, with nearly half of all studies (45%) originating from the USA. Snakes were most often studied, and crocodiles were least often studied, while testudines tended to have the greatest within study sample sizes. More than half of all studies lacked critical methodological details, limiting the number of studies for inclusion in future meta-analyses (55% of studies lacked information on individual tracking durations, and 51% lacked sufficient information on the number of times researchers recorded positions). Studies continue to rely on outdated methods to quantify space-use (including Minimum Convex Polygons and Kernel Density Estimators), often failing to report subtleties regarding decisions that have substantial impact on home range area estimates. Moving forward researchers can select a suite of appropriate analytical techniques tailored to their research question (dynamic Brownian Bridge Movement Models for within sample interpolation, and autocorrelated Kernel Density Estimators for beyond sample extrapolation). Only 1.4% of all evaluated studies linked to available and usable telemetry data, further hindering scientific consensus. We ultimately implore herpetologists to adopt transparent reporting practices and make liberal use of open data platforms to maximize progress in the field of reptile spatial ecology.

Simulating Multi Layer Targets for Grazing Incidence Small Angle X-ray Scattering

Paschke-Brühl, F.-L.

This bachelor thesis studies the feasibility of grazing-incidence small-angle x-ray scattering
(GISAXS) in the UHI laser-target interaction via computational simulations with SMILEI. In
this work we briefly analyze the front and back of the target. We find predominantly that the
compression of the target becomes apparent in the GISAXS pattern, while we can not observe
ablation. We will mainly focus on the density oscillation, a dynamic that has not been mentio-
ned in literature yet. The density oscillation dynamics depend on a simple pressure gradient
in between the layers. We observe the multi layers inversely oscillating in density and a global
density alteration moving through the target. The density alteration allows to recognize the
dynamic in a GISAXS pattern. We learn, that GISAXS is feasible in the high intensity regime,
but not for the same dynamics as in the lower intensity regime.

NeuLAND (New Large-Area Neutron Detector) is the next-generation neutron detector for the R3B (Reactions with Relativistic Radioactive Beams) experiment at FAIR (Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research). NeuLAND detects neutrons with energies from 100 to 1000 MeV, featuring a high detection efficiency, a high spatial and time resolution, and a large multi-neutron reconstruction efficiency. This is achieved by a highly granular design of organic scintillators: 3000 individual submodules with a size of 5x5x250 cm3 are arranged in 30 double planes with 100 submodules each, providing an active area of 250x250 cm2 and a total depth of 3 m. The spatial resolution due to the granularity together with a time resolution of 150 ps ensures high-resolution capabilities. In conjunction with calorimetric properties, a multi-neutron reconstruction efficiency of 50% to 70% for four-neutron events will be achieved, depending on both the emission scenario and the boundary conditions allowed for the reconstruction method. We present in this paper the final design of the detector as well as results from test measurements and simulations on which this design is based.

Laser-induced ionization of ions from liquid alloy ion sources of high brightness

Machalett, F.; Ying, B.; Wustelt, P.; Huth, V.; Kübel, M.; Bischoff, L.; Klingner, N.; Pilz, W.; Stöhlker, T.; Paulus, G. G.

In this work, we have generated ion beam targets of metal and metalloid ions using a high-brightness liquid metal ion source (LMIS) originally applied in focused ion beam systems. Using an eutectic Au-Si alloy as a low melting point source feed material, ions of different ion species were detected: Si^{2+}, Si^+, Au^{2+}, Au^+, Au^{2+}, Au^{3+} and Au^{32+}. The source current between emitter needle and extractor electrode is in the range of 10 - 60 μA and can be adjusted up to about 150 μA. The ion source is characterized by high ion current stability and a suitable emission lifetime of several days, which is limited by the amount of material and can be further increased.
To study the strong-field laser ionization, we used a E x B filter and selected Si^{2+} and Au+ ions as ionic targets, because of their high beam intensity. We investigated ultrafast laser-induced ionization, which leads to higher charge states after multiple ionization of both ion species. Laser intensities of up to 10^{16} W/cm^2 allow observation of up to 10-fold ionization of Au^+ ions and 3-fold ionization of Si^{2+} ions.
The aim of further work is to extend the available ion beam targets to other elements of the periodic table to study ultrafast laser-induced fragmentation and ionization dynamics of atoms and molecules in strong laser fields. Another goal is the further increase of the density of ion laser targets for more reliable statistics and shorter measurement times. Further steps are technical improvements of ion source and ion optics as well as the investigation of heavy metal dimers such as Au^{2+}.

Laser-induced ionization of ions from high brightness ion sources

Machalett, F.; Ying, B.; Wustelt, P.; Huth, V.; Kübel, M.; Bischoff, L.; Klingner, N.; Pilz, W.; Stöhlker, T.; Paulus, G. G.

Au and Si ions from high brightness liquid metal ion sources (LMIS) are used as ionic targets for strong-field laser interaction with femtosecond laser beam. Field ionization processes in the field emission source at electrostatic fields of some 10 V/nm allow the generation of various metallic and metalloid ion beams with charge states such as Au^{2+} and Si^{2+}. Studying the ionization in strong femtosecond laser fields with intensities of up to 1E16 W/cm^2, we observed for these elements charge states up to Au^{11+} and Si^{4+}.

Experimental and numerical investigations of Ni–Co–SiO2 alloy films deposited by magnetic-field-assisted jet plating

Jiang, W.; Huang, M.; Lao, Y.; Yang, X.; Wang, C.; Tian, Z.; Zhou, S.; Mutschke, G.; Eckert, K.

A new method of magnetic-field-assisted jet plating is presented to manufacture Ni-Co-SiO2 alloy films. The influence of different concentrations of Co2+ ions of the electrolyte is investigated with and without magnetic field to study the resulting properties of the deposits. The texture orientation, surface morphology, magnetic properties and corrosion resistance of the alloy films were characterized. The results show that with increasing Co2+ concentration in conventional jet-plating, the surface morphology changes from a granular crystal structure to a needle-like structure at 30 g/L caused by the hexagonal close-packed (HCP) structure of a large Co content. Differently, the assistance of the magnetic field leads to lower Co content in the films, even at a high Co2+ concentration of 30 g/L. The deposit layer remains in the face-centered cubic (FCC) structure and shows a granular morphology. The magnetic field in general leads to grain refinement and inhibits the abnormal Ni–Co co-deposition. The Ni–Co–SiO2 alloy films obtained by magnetic-field-assisted jet plating have a smooth and dense surface. The best soft magnetic properties and corrosion resistance are obtained at a Co2+ concentration of 20 g/L. The coercivity is as low as 7.5 Oe, and the corrosion current density is as low as 1.12 μA·cm-2 in 3.5 wt% NaCl solution without agitation and at room temperature, clearly showing the advantages of the method for preparing superior soft magnetic materials. In addition, a physical model of magnetic-field-assisted jet plating is established. The magnetic forces and the resulting electrolyte flow are analyzed with the help of numerical simulations, and the influence of the magnetic field on the deposition process is discussed from the perspective of magnetohydrodynamics.

Increased dephasing length in heavily doped GaAs

Duan, J.; Wang, C.; Vines, L.; Rebohle, L.; Helm, M.; Zeng, Y.-J.; Zhou, S.; Prucnal, S.

Ion implantation of S and Te followed by sub-second flash lamp annealing with peak temperature about 1100 oC is employed to obtain metallic n++-GaAs layers. The electron concentration in annealed GaAs is as high as 5×1019 cm-3, which is several times higher than the doping level achievable by alternative methods. We found that heavily doped n++-GaAs exhibits positive magnetoconductance in the temperature range of 3-80 K, which is attributed to the magnetic field suppressed weak localization. By fitting the magnetoconductance results with Hikami-Larkin-Nagaoka model, it is found that the phase coherence length increases with increasing carrier concentration at low temperature and is as large as 540 nm at 3 K. The temperature dependence of the phase coherence length follows〖 l〗_∅∝T^η (η~0.3), indicating defect-related scattering as the dominant dephasing mechanism. In addition, the high doping level in n-type GaAs provides the possibility to use GaAs as a plasmonic material for chemical sensors operating in the infrared range.

On the nature of Pb species in Pb-(over)exchanged zeolite: a combined experimental and theoretical study

Roos, D. P.; Scheinost, A.; Churakov, S. V.; Nagashima, M.; Cametti, G.

Structural properties of Pb-exchanged zeolites are of interest because of their applications in environmental remediation and in industrial processes. In this study, we report on a Pb-exchanged aluminosilicate zeolite (Pb-STI), with particular focus on the cationic species, which form inside the zeolitic pores as a result of the exchange experiments. The produced
zeolite had chemical composition Pb13.4(OH)10Al17.4Si54.6O144 ∙38H2O, indicating a Pb2+ overexchange of approximately 50%. The STI framework maintained the Fmmm space group characteristic of the type material. However, the extraframework occupants, Pb2+, H2O and OH-, were characterized by a strong positional-disorder. The latter was resolved and
interpreted combining Extended X-ray Absorption Fine Structure (EXAFS) analysis with Molecular Dynamics (MD) simulations. On average, Pb2+ ions are coordinated by 2 OH- and
1 H2O at distances < 2.5 Å, whereas bonds to framework oxygen-atoms were found only at longer distances (> 2.8 Å). Pb2+ adopts mainly a sided distorted coordination, indicating a
stereochemical activity of the lone pair electrons. The obtained results were compared with those of other mono-cationic forms of STI zeolites. Based on the analysis of the framework
distortion experienced after the incorporation of different metal ions, considerations are drawn on the potential effect of Pb2+ on the thermal stability of STI framework type zeolites.

Compact spectroscopy of keV to MeV X-rays from a laser wakefield accelerator

Hannasch, A.; Laso García, A.; La Berge, M.; Zgadzaj, R.; Köhler, A.; Couperus Cabadağ, J. P.; Zarini, O.; Kurz, T.; Ferrari, A.; Molodtsova, M.; Naumann, L.; Cowan, T.; Schramm, U.; Irman, A.; Downer, M.

We reconstruct spectra of secondary X‑rays from a tunable 250–350 MeV laser wakefield electron accelerator from single‑shot X‑ray depth‑energy measurements in a compact (7.5 × 7.5 × 15 cm), modular X‑ray calorimeter made of alternating layers of absorbing materials and imaging plates. X‑rays range from few‑keV betatron to few‑MeV inverse Compton to > 100 MeV bremsstrahlung emission, and are characterized both individually and in mixtures. Geant4 simulations of energy deposition of single‑energy X‑rays in the stack generate an energy‑vs‑depth response matrix for a given stack configuration. An iterative reconstruction algorithm based on analytic models of betatron, inverse Compton and bremsstrahlung photon energy distributions then unfolds X‑ray spectra,
typically within a minute. We discuss uncertainties, limitations and extensions of both measurement and reconstruction methods.

A new system for real-time data acquisition and pulse parameterization for digital positron annihilation lifetime spectrometers with high repetition rates

Hirschmann, E.; Butterling, M.; Hernandez Acosta, U.; Liedke, M. O.; Elsherif, A. G. A.; Petring, P.; Görler, M.; Krause-Rehberg, R.; Wagner, A.

We present a new system for high repetition rate and real-time pulse analysis imple- mented at the Monoenergetic Positron Source (MePS) at the superconducting electron LINAC ELBE at Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf. Dedicated digital signal processing and op- timized algorithms are employed allowing for high bandwidth throughput, online pulse analysis and filtering. Positrons generated from radioisotopes and from bremsstrahlung pair production by means of highly intense accelerator-based positron beams serve as a microstructure probe allowing material characterizations with respect to chemical, mechanical, electrical, and magnetic properties. Positron annihilation lifetime events with up to 13 MHz repetition rate are being processed online without losses while performing signal selections for pile-up reduction, online energy calibration, and - for radioisotope-based measurements - identification of start and stop events.
