<strong>Background</strong><br> Many industrial processes rely on metal oxides with high surface area. Thin porous metal oxide films offer unique physical, electrical and magnetic properties with applications in various fields including catalysis, gas sensing and separation, power storage and generation as well as biology and medicine. However, several attempts to prepare alkali and alkaline earth metal oxide films have been unsuccessful.<br><br> <strong>Technology</strong><br> We offer an improved method for the production of porous metal oxide films. The metal oxides are prepared by a micelle-templated synthesis via a metal carbonate intermediate. This method enables the fabrication of alkali and alkaline earth as well as rare earth metal oxide films with high surface area. <br><br> <strong>Benefits</strong> <ul> <li>High surface area</li> <li>Enables the preparation of mesoporous metal oxide films such as:</li> <li>Alkali metal oxide films (e.g. Li2O)</li> <li>Alkaline-earth metal oxide films (e.g. MgO)</li> <li>Rare earth metal oxide films (e.g. ZnO, TiO2, MnO2)</li> <li>Oxides of other metals (e.g. Al2O3)</li> <li>Mixed metal oxide films (e.g. BaTiO3)</li> </li> </ul> <p><strong>IP Rights</strong><br> DE patent application (02/2012) <br> <br> <strong>Patent Owner</strong><br> Technische Universität Berlin</p>

In power electronics systems bonded connections create the central electrical connections between adjoining surfaces.
The quality of these bonded connections is one of the main factors that determines the reliability and availability of drive systems in electric vehicles, and hence constitutes a major design challenge for German auto manufacturers aiming to electrify their vehicles.

International team of scientists develops new feedback method for optimizing the laser pulse shapes used in the control of chemical reactions
In many ways, traditional chemical synthesis is similar to cooking. To alter the final product, you can change the ingredients or their ratio, change the method of mixing ingredients, or change the temperature or pressure of the environment of the ingredients.
Like an accomplished chef, chemists have become very skilled ...
A genetic defect protects mice from infection with influenza viruses
A new study published in the scientific journal PLOS Pathogens points out that mice lacking a protein called Tmprss2 are no longer affected by certain flu viruses.
The discovery was made by researchers from the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research (HZI) in Braunschweig in collaboration with colleagues from Göttingen and ...
The Light: Global study gets underway with online user survey
Light has a fundamental impact on our sense of well-being and performance. In cooperation with Zumtobel, a supplier of lighting solutions, Fraunhofer IAO has launched a global user survey of lighting quality in offices. The objective is to identify the best lighting conditions for a variety of spaces and lighting ...
Quantum entanglement, a perplexing phenomenon of quantum mechanics that Albert Einstein once referred to as “spooky action at a distance,” could be even spookier than Einstein perceived.
Physicists at the University of Washington and Stony Brook University in New York believe the phenomenon might be intrinsically linked with wormholes, hypothetical features of space-time that in popular science fiction can provide a much-faster-than-light shortcut from one part of the universe to another.
But here’s the catch: One couldn’t actually ...
