Because trust is based on many things in everyday life, research on trust needs to follow many paths of inquiry. Research and real-life events show that the foundation of trust is the willing suspension of uncertainty. When people trust, they set uncertainty aside and make a leap of faith, all the while knowing they might need to bring uncertainty back in if facts contradict their expectations. more
Millions of modes of vibration, excited by turbulent convection, enable solar physicists to see inside the Sun. Three dimensional helioseismic techniques offer unique prospects for probing complex magnetohydrodynamical processes and uncovering the mechanism of the solar cycle, while the extension of seismic investigations to distant stars will open a new era of observational stellar research. more

A Concept for Synthesis Planning in Solid State and Materials Chemistry

Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research Schön, J. Christian; Putz, Holger; Wevers, Marcus A. C.; Hannemann, Alexander; ¿an¿arevi¿, ¿eljko; Pentin, Ilya; Fischer, Dieter; Jansen, Martin
Rational synthesis planning in solid state chemistry is presented as a self-consistent concept. The unbiased prediction of new compounds followed by an analysis of their properties allows the selection of the most appropriate route for their synthesis. more
Heterostructures consisting of superconducting and ferromagnetic oxides open a new field of research to study the mutual interaction of incompatible ground states in solids. As an example spin-polarized quasiparticle injection into high-temperature superconductors is used to study non-equilibrium effects and thus to contribute to the understanding of superconductivity in cuprates. more
