Atomic insights into 3D

Togeher with colleagues from the Jülich Research Center and the Federal Institute of Physics and Technology in Berlin, Peter Puschnig of the Institute for Physics at the University of Graz published the results of their experimental and theoretical research in the scientific journal "Nature Communications".

Puschnig and his colleagues are trying to record the orbitals and making them visible. With the help of photoelectron spectroscopy, a sample of a molecular layer on a silver surface is bombarded with photons from an ultraviolet source of light. The energetically excited electrons are released,. Thier angular and energy distributions enable the scientists to draw conclusions about the molecular orbitals.

For the first time orbitals could be recorded for larger, complex molecules. For this purpose, the researchers carried out the experiment with different energies i.e. different wavelengths of light. Recently the researchers were able to reconstruct the electron distribution of a complex molecule in 3D by using the data from the precisely calibrated flow of photos of the "Metrology Light Source“ of the Federal Institute of Physics and Technology in Berlin.

Austria as a Trailblazer for the Circular Economy

For years the idea of the circular economy embodies the vision of an economy with controllable resource consumption. Pioneer work was carried out, for example, by the European Union with its “Circular Economy Package”. This creates the foundation for enabling (secondary) raw materials to remain in the economic cycle as long and efficiently as possible. This can be done if attention is paid to economical raw material use, durability and repairability and reusability at the beginning of the value chain, and that the materials can be optimally collected, sorted and recycled after their use.
