New gas adsorption heating device for single- and multi-family homes
For a long time, thermal heat pumps were generally considered too large to cover the relatively low heating requirements of single- and multi-family homes efficiently. Newly developed gas adsorption heating devices can now change that.
They have been developed specifically for this application. The BINE-Projektinfo brochure “Heating with gas adsorption heat pumps“ (03/2015) presents one of the new devices. This combines condensing boiler technology with a zeolite/water-based thermal heat pump module.
The device consists of two modules: the thermal heat pump module covers the base load for the building heating. The necessary drive heat is provided by a gas condensing module. This also covers the peak heating requirement on very cold days.
Compared with an electric heat pump, the new concept requires significantly less environmental heat. Borehole heat exchangers, ground collectors and geothermal baskets as well as solar thermal energy can be used as heat sources. An up to 40% greater annual utilisation rate can be achieved relative to pure gas condensing boilers.
The gas-adsorption heating device has been developed by the Viessmann company from Allendorf, Germany. In the subsequent field tests, plant operators and heating installers confirmed their excellent experience with the devices. The operators particularly highlighted the low noise emissions and intuitive operation. The effort required for the installation and commissioning is no greater than for conventional heating systems.

A newly developed laser technology has enabled physicists in the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (jointly run by LMU Munich and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics) to generate attosecond bursts of high-energy photons of unprecedented intensity. This has made it possible to observe the interaction of multiple photons in a single such pulse with electrons in the inner orbital shell of an atom.
In order to observe the ultrafast electron motion in the inner shells of atoms with short light pulses, the pulses must not only be ultrashort, but very...
A group of researchers led by Andrea Cavalleri at the Max Planck Institute for Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) in Hamburg has demonstrated a new method enabling precise measurements of the interatomic forces that hold crystalline solids together. The paper Probing the Interatomic Potential of Solids by Strong-Field Nonlinear Phononics, published online in Nature, explains how a terahertz-frequency laser pulse can drive very large deformations of the crystal.
By measuring the highly unusual atomic trajectories under extreme electromagnetic transients, the MPSD group could reconstruct how rigid the atomic bonds are...

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.
In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...
