In the Graduate Center, six Max Planck Institutes including MPI CPfS bring together their expertise in the research of quantum materials and offer a unique graduate program in this intriguing research area.
The topological nature of the surface states in SmB6 is exposed by means of scanning tunneling spectroscopy on samples with magnetic substituents or by using magnetic tunneling tips. These local measurements are complemented by global transport measurements on identical samples.[more]
On 19th Sept. 2018, there was a racially motivated assault on a foreign PhD student in a tram of DVB. In an open letter, the PhD representatives from six Dresden research institutes clearly position themselves against any violence and oppression towards other people on the basis of their origin or culture. Furthermore, they emphasize the importance of an open and diverse society, especially for Dresden as a research location.
Hydrodynamic electron flow can only be observed in high-purity quantum materials. An international team of members from the IBM Research Laboratory Zurich, the University of Hamburg and the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids has now found signatures of electron hydrodynamics in the semimetal tungsten diphosphide. The results were published in the journal Nature Communications.[more]
A universal strategy based on electrochemically induced fast reconstruction of amorphous nanofilm precursors is proposed for exploring ultrahigh mass activity and extremely stable bifunctional water splitting catalysts. The facile reconstruction strategy is promising for the development of novel efficient catalysts for other advanced energy conversion and storage devices.
In a recent study, scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids in Dresden have performed a comprehensive study of thermoelectric and thermomagnetic properties of polycrystalline Weyl semimetal NbP.
Die drei Dresdner Max-Planck-Institute – das MPI für die Chemische Physik fester Stoffe, das MPI für die Physik komplexer Systeme und das MPI für molekulare Zellbiologie und Genetik – organisieren eine gemeinsame Veranstaltung zum bundesweiten „Max-Planck-Tag“ in der Dresdner Innenstadt, genauer gesagt im Plenarsaal des Rathauses, um die Arbeit speziell ihrer Institute den Dresdnern und ihren Gästen zu präsentieren.[more]
