In der Vortragsreihe „Wissenschaft mit Wirkung“ wollen wir uns ganz konkret der Frage widmen, wie Forschung in postfaktischen Zeiten Wirkung und Nutzen für die Gesellschaft entfalten kann. Das ganze Jahr über werden Referent*innen der BAM sowie aus unserem weltweiten Netzwerk mit ihren Vorträgen aktuelle Fragen aus unseren fünf Themenfeldern Energie, Infrastruktur, Umwelt, Material und Analytical Sciences beleuchten.

Den Auftakt bildete im März das digitale Symposium zum Thema “Vertrauen in Zukunftstechnologien”.

Hier finden Sie die bisherigen Vorträge.

TopicThe Materials Science of Sustainable Metals and a Circular Economy
PresenterProf. Dierk Raabe
Max-Planck Institut für Eisenforschung
SummaryFor more than five millennia metallic alloys have been serving as the backbone of civilization. Today >2 billion tons of metals are produced every year. The demand for some materials such as steels, aluminum and copper is expected to double or even triple by 2050. Metals require a lot of energy for their extraction, synthesis and downstream manufacturing, qualifying them as the largest single industrial source of greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption. The success of metals thus brings them into a position where they must play an important role in addressing the associated environmental challenges and the coming of a partially circular economy. The presentation discusses pathways for improving the direct sustainability of structural metals, in areas including reduced-carbon-dioxide primary production, recycling, scrap-compatible alloy design, contaminant-tolerance of alloys and improved alloy longevity. The lecture also discusses the effectiveness and technological readiness of individual measures, and also shows how novel structural materials enable improved energy efficiency.

TopicSources, Spectrometers, and Systems for Elemental, Molecular, and Biomolecular Analysis
PresenterProf. Dr. Gary M. Hieftje
Department of Chemistry, Indiana University
Summary

In the 150 years during which BAM and its predecessors have been in existence, the field of spectrochemistry has evolved from a laboratory curiosity to a workhorse employed to measure almost anything in everything. In the area of elemental analysis alone, atomization/excitation sources have evolved from moderate-temperature chemical flames to high-temperature electrical discharges powered by dc, low-frequency, radiofrequency, and microwave supplies. Similarly, primary light sources used for absorption and fluorescence have progressed from those of natural origin (e.g. the sun) to devices powered by supplies ranging from electrical to nuclear. During the same period, spectrometers moved from optical systems operated manually and employing detection by the human eye to sophisticated simultaneous multichannel arrangements operated under computer control and guided by artificial intelligence. It is therefore natural to question whether this trend can continue. Is spectrochemistry approaching a plateau? Can new, ever better sources and spectrometers be conceived and developed? Even more important, can newly developed instruments address all problems likely to be critical in coming years?

In this presentation, these questions will be placed in the context of past and recent developments in instrumentation and methods for elemental, molecular, and biomolecular analysis. It will be argued that progress in instrumentation science and, indeed, science in general is evolutionary rather than revolutionary; true breakthroughs are impossible to presage. As a result, near-future advances can be gauged in part by reviewing recent, promising innovations. Several of these innovations will be described and critiqued, with emphasis being placed on multidimensional, information-rich sources, spectrometers, and detectors.
