Wave Motion - New Compounds for Molecule Interferometry Experiments


When waves meet, a new single wave is created. This phenomenon is well understood for mechanical waves such as sound, and electro-magnetic waves such as light, and the "interference" of light waves is applied in astronomy, fiber optics, and oceanography. The observation that even individual large ...

Just in time for the New Year, the company relocated from Basel to Kaiseraugst. The new laboratories offer more space to provide the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industry with the spectrum of services that includes analysis of large and small molecules, solid-state development, and ...


Empa researchers clarify reaction pathway to fabricate graphene-like materials


Graphene is a promising material for tomorrow’s nanoelectronics devices. Precise and upscaleable methods to fabricate graphene and derived materials with desired electronic properties are however still searched after. To overcome the current limitations, Empa researchers have fabricated ...


Clicking Tc-99m SPECT Probes Together

Molecular Assembly of Multifunctional 99mTc Radiopharmaceuticals Using "Clickable" Amino Acid Derivatives


Radioactively labeled compounds are important for use as imaging probes or radiotherapeutic agents. Most radioisotopes with suitable decay properties are transition metals or elements with metallic character. Therefore, bifunctional chelators are required for stable tethering of a given ...

X-Ray Vision: Seeing Plastic Mixtures Inside and Out

Simultaneous surface and bulk imaging of polymer blends with X-ray spectromicroscopy


Two scientists working in Europe have paved the way for improved plastic electronics by devising a technique that can be used to take images of plastic mixtures on the nanoscale simultaneously in the body of the material and at the surface. Low-cost plastic solar cells, brighter displays, and a ...
