All about hydrogen: VIP visit at the MPIE

September 24, 2020
Dr. Baptiste Gault, head of the group "Atom Probe Tomography" and this year's Leibniz Award winner, explains how to detect and trap hydrogen atoms in a material to Dr. Stefan Kaufmann.
Dr. Jazmin Duarte, heading the group "Hydrogen Mechanics and Interfaces", and Dr. Stefan Kaufmann in the nanomechanics laboratory.

Dr. Stefan Kaufmann, Member of the German Bundestag and Commissioner for Green Hydrogen at the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, visited the Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung in Düsseldorf on 21 September 2020.

In the laboratories for atom probe tomography and nanomechanics, Dr. Jazmin Duarte and Leibniz prize winner Dr. Baptiste Gault presented their research on hydrogen detection in materials down to the atomic scale. They showed how they understand its behaviour in materials and even prevent its harmful effects through trapping or resistant coatings.

Kaufmann is currently visiting institutions from research and industry in Germany to find out about conditions and funding opportunities in the field of hydrogen research.
