The 5SL4 miniature circuit breaker safely shuts down circuits in buildings in case of overloads or short circuits and thus protects cables and devices from damage. The MCB with an integrated snap-on fixing system for mounting on the standard mounting rail can be integrated with minimum effort in existing electrical installations and combined with additional devices.
The new Siemens 5SL4 miniature circuit breakers are rated for 10-kA applications and can be flexibly expanded to offer additional functions.
The MCB is compatible with all Siemens accessory components, such as AFD units, auxiliary and residual current operated circuit breakers, undervoltage releases and fault signal contacts, and can thus be expanded by a wide range of functions. In addition to high operational and plant safety, the 5SL4 miniature circuit breakers offer protection and convenience during installation and servicing: The touch protection integrated in the terminals protects the installer from electrical shock when connecting the devices. The colored switch position indicator integrated in the handle always clearly indicates the current switching state. A handle locking device prevents unauthorized switching. Thanks to the consistent busbar concept, all the devices can be quickly and easily fitted in existing electrical installations. With the aid of the latching slide, they can be conveniently mounted on or removed from the standard mounting rail in the junction box. The rectangularly-designed terminals offer space for pin busbars, as well as additional conductors with a surface area of 0.75 to 25 mm².
The new Siemens devices in the 5SL4 series are available with the tripping characteristics B, C and D: The miniature circuit breakers with tripping characteristic B are designed for universal use in socket outlet circuits and lighting circuits. In lamp and motor circuits with higher starting currents, miniature circuit breakers with tripping characteristic C are generally used. For electrical circuits with strong pulse-generating equipment, such as transformers or solenoid valves, switches are used with tripping characteristic D.

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...
