Young start-up team develops new reference materials for direct microanalysis of solids

Setting new standards in solids analysis

14-Mar-2018

How badly plants are affected by contaminated soil, what the sea floor can reveal about past climate, or what yield an ore mine could deliver in future - an analysis of the chemical composition of minerals and rocks can often provide valuable information. For accurate results, not only are ...

The hidden Nano Power Switch

Researchers discover switching function in molecular wire

01-Nov-2017

The increasing miniaturisation in electronics will result in components which consist of only a few molecules, or even just one molecule. Tiny wires are required to connect these to an electrical circuit at the nano level. An international research team from Kiel University (CAU) and the Donostia ...

Tugging at cells with molecules and light

A new method for cellular stimulation

20-Dec-2016

Everyone is made up of approximately 100 trillion cells – if they were laid end to end, they would circle the globe 60 times. Most of these cells arise from mitosis and differentiation of a single egg cell. To orientate themselves, they constantly explore their environment and communicate with ...

UV-sensors from the oven

Scientists at Kiel University revolutionize the nanostructure production process

22-Nov-2013

Placed in fire detectors and water treatment units UV-sensors can save lives; also in many areas of industry and environment the demand for these devices is rising steadily. Scientists of Kiel University have been able to ”bake” nanostructures within seconds, in order to fabricate very fast ...

Watching the quantum race of electrons

22-Jun-2012

For the first time ever, a German team of physicists has observed the race of two electrons that are liberated from atoms in the course of photoionization, i.e. under the influence of laser radiation. In order to resolve the electron’s movement during only 50 femtoseconds, scientists from Hamburg ...

Lattice of magnetic vortices

Researchers find magnetic skyrmions in atomically thin metal film

04-Aug-2011

Physicists at Hamburg and Kiel University and the Forschungszentrum Jülich have found for the first time a regular lattice of magnetic skyrmions – cycloidal vortex spin structures of exceptional stability – on a surface. This fascinating magnetic structure was discovered experimentally at the ...

Can genetic information be controlled by light?

Researchers at Kiel University report sequence-dependent effects of light on DNA

13-Oct-2008

DNA, the molecule that acts as the carrier of genetic information in all forms of life, is highly resistant against alteration by ultraviolet light, but understanding the mechanism for its photostability presents some puzzling problems. A key aspect is the interaction between the four chemical ...
