Sapere Aude grant to Professor Philip Hofmann

Philip Hofmann awarded advanced grant


A double layer of graphene keeps on charging

2014.06.26The thin carbon material graphene is even better at converting light to electricity than previously thought – it just requires two layers. Researchers at Aarhus University have just shown that stacking two layers on top of each other can – by means of light – create ‘hot’ electrons with a long service life. This will make it possible to use a double layer of graphene to harvest or store energy in optical components such as solar cells.

Heading towards a gamma-ray laser?

2014.06.25A group of Aarhus University researchers headed by Ulrik Uggerhøj has produced intense gamma radiation for the first time ever by sending an electron beam through a specially made silicon-germanium (SiGe) crystal – known as a crystalline undulator.
