meet you at DIET16

The abstract submission and registration of this year’s DIET meeting at the Eibsee at the foot of the Zugspitze is now open.


recalcitrant material

Ta2NiSe5 does not want to undergo photoinduced phase transitions. Selene Mor‘s experiments show that it self-protects from a structural phase transition and, instead of undergoing an insulator-to-semiconductor phase transition, becomes more insulating through exciton condensate density enhancement when photoexcited sufficiently strongly.

water splitting

Sarah King and Daniel Wegkamp showed that amorphous solid water layers adsorbed on Cu(111) host extremely long-lived excess electrons that can drive the two-electron hydrogen evolution reaction.
