Sebastian Schöder wins poster price at ESRF Students' Day (Oct 27, 2006)
Sebastian Schöder, PhD student at MPI-MF, wins poster price at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility ESRF in Grenoble. Schöder investigates in his PhD work the behaviour of ice at solid interfaces, using the highly brilliant X-ray radiation provided by the ESRF.
The Nanoworld of Corrosion (Feb 9, 2006)
ESRF experiments unveil a protective surface layer that hinders corrosion of a metal alloy.
The first neutron reflectivity measurement has been completed at the new X-ray/neutron reflectometer N-REX+ at FRM-II.

Fluctuations of crystalline material observed with X-ray microbeam (April 22, 2005)
Using Synchrotron X-ray microbeams, a research team from the Max Planck Institute for Metals Research in Stuttgart and the ESRF has been able to observe for the first time that the microscopic structure of a crystalline material fluctuates in time.
Over the last few years, the whole world has been awakened to the potential of nanoscience and nanotechnology to profoundly change the way we live. This "revolution" is not only the concern of scientists and engineers, but is also having a real impact on many sectors of industry, including electronics, telecommunications, chemicals, transport, energy, and the environment, to name a few.

The European Commission has agreed on the funding of the project
NanO2, Oxidation of Nanomaterials.
The project, a so-called STRP, started on 1.1.2004. Its main goal is the understanding of the oxidation behavior of matter in reduced dimensions under ambient conditions and at elevated temperatures. It involves the collaboration of 10 European research laboratories. Further information at the NanO2 webpage, containing information about the objectives of the project, the participants and recent developments.
