Nanoscale ruler reveals organization of the cell membrane

Freiburg biologists measure distances and the arrangement of membrane molecules in nanometer range

27-06-2014

After a ten-year effort, Prof. Dr. Michael Reth from the Institute of Biology III of the University of Freiburg and the Max Planck Institute of Immunobiology and Epigenetics has developed a method to investigate the cell surface's organization on a nanometer scale. This allows him to monitor how ...

No evidence of the double nature of neutrinos

The Majorana nature of neutrinos and the neutrinoless double-beta decay

16-06-2014

After two years of searching for a special radioactive decay that would provide an indication of new physics beyond the standard model, an experiment deep under ground near Carlsbad (New Mexico, USA) has so far found no evidence of its existence. If this decay indeed exists, its half -life must ...
