  • Calcium batteries: new electrolytes, enhanced properties
    Calcium-based batteries promise to reach a high energy density at low manufacturing costs. This lab-scale technology has the potential for replacing lithium-ion technology in future energy storage systems. ...
  • Producing Graphene from Carbon Dioxide
    The general public knows the chemical compound of carbon dioxide as a greenhouse gas in the atmosphere and because of its global-warming effect. However, carbon dioxide can also be a useful raw material for ...
  • Fuels From Air-conditioning Systems
    Researchers at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and the University of Toronto have proposed a method enabling air conditioning and ventilation systems to produce synthetic fuels from carbon dioxide (CO2) and water fr...
  • Chemical Storage of Renewable Energies
    In 2050, 80% of the electric power in Germany has to be based on renewable resources. To reach this goal, it is required to store electric power in the form of chemical energy carriers. Within the prior...


  • Green Production of Chemicals for Industry
    Industry consumes large quantities of crude oil to produce basic substances for drugs, cosmetics, plastics, or food. However, these processes consume a lot of energy and produce waste. Biological proces...
  • Growing Polymer Pelts
    Polymer pelts made of the finest of fibers are suitable for many different applications, from coatings that adhere well and are easy to remove to highly sensitive biological detectors. Researchers at Karlsruhe In...
  • 3D Inks that Can Be Erased Selectively
    3D printing by direct laser writing enables production of micro-meter-sized structures for many applications, from biomedicine to microelectronics to optical metamaterials. Researchers of Karlsruhe Inst...
  • Neutrinos weighed by the world's most precise scale
    What is the mass of neutrinos? To answer one of the most fundamental and important open questions in modern particle physics and cosmology, the KATRIN Karlsruhe Tritium Neutrino Ex-periment was designed and built by an in...
  • Solve the nitrate problem in agriculture with new filter methods
    Nitrate concentrations of German groundwater are among the highest in the European Union. The main reason is overfertilization of fields with feces from livestock farming. Every year, a "liquid manure s...
  • Simple Organic Molecules form complex materials through self-organization
    Floor parquetings are typically found in living rooms. But microstructured parquetings, or rather tessellations, may occur in materials as well. Materials with tessellations can, for example, be charact...


  • Gips-Schüle Research Award for Ultracompact Photodetector
    Researchers of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) demonstrated a novel plasmonic photodetector that is a hundred times smaller and much quicker than conventional detectors. For this, scientists Sascha Mühlbr...
  • Self-healing Gold Particles
    Self-healing materials are able to repair autonomously defects, such as scratches, cracks or dents, and resume their original shape. For this purpose, they must be composed of several components wh...
  • Natural molecule to boost the performance of electrodes for rechargeable batteries
    Chlorophyll, blood, and vitamin B12 are all based on the porphyrin molecule. But porphyrin can also be used as an electrode material where it speeds up the charging process of rechargeable batterie...
  • Water droplets as miniaturized test tubes
    Modern laboratory technology cannot only help develop new medicine, but also make quicker diagnoses of higher precision. Scientists of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) have now developed laboratory eq...
  • Electric impulses clean Industrial water and paints
    Most paints for households or industry are based on water and, hence, are environmentally more compatible than paints based on solvents. Water-based paints, however, have one drawback: Microorganisms, s...
  • 3D-Printing of Glass Now Possible
    Three-dimensional printing allows extremely small and complex structures to be made even in small series. A method developed at the KIT for the first time allows also glass to be used for this technique...
  • Reliable molecular toggle switch developed
    Nanotechnology constantly allows for new records in miniaturization. Reduction of the dimension of electronic components, however, has physical limits that will be reached soon. Novel materials and component...
  • Single molecule switch
    The progressing miniaturisation of electronic components will reach a fundamental barrier at the dimension of single atoms. For this reason researchers in the field of molecular electronics aim at realising functional elec...
  • Producing two-dimensional textiles from monomolecular polymer threads
    Researchers of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) have made major progress in the production of two-dimensional polymer-based materials. To produce cloths from monomolecular threads, the scien...
