A protein showcases modern measuring and control technology

A dual sensing protein establishes robust control of calcium household in bacteria

22-Jun-2016

Modern heating systems use an indoor and an outdoor sensor in order to efficiently achieve homely temperatures. Now a team of scientists from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich (LMU) discovered exactly such a dual sensor strategy realized by a ...

Film in 4-D with ultrashort electron pulses

Electron pulses shortened to 30 femtoseconds duration - giving insight to atomic motions

30-Oct-2015

A team from Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) and Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (MPQ) has now managed to shorten electron pulses down to 28 femtoseconds in duration. Such shutter speeds enable us to directly observe the truly fundamental motions of atoms and molecules in solids, ...

Laser-based molecular fingerprinting

24-Sep-2015

Researchers and regulators in many fields often need to detect and measure levels of specific substances in a sea of irrelevant molecules, and infrared light offers an ideal tool for this task. Infrared radiation is invisible to the human eye, but molecules react with mid-infrared light in ways ...

Mini X-ray source with laser light

18-Aug-2015

Physicists from Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität, the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics and the TU München have developed a method using laser-generated X-rays and phase-contrast X-ray tomography to produce three-dimensional images of soft tissue structures in organisms With laser light, ...

DNA barcoding discloses diversity

06-Jul-2015

LMU researchers have used DNA barcoding to elucidate the diversity of the sponge fauna found in Antarctic waters. The data provide new insights into the evolution of this poorly characterized group. Sponges constitute an important component of marine ecosystems in the waters around Antarctica. As ...

Bacterial defense policies

14-Oct-2014

High-resolution cryo-electron microscopy has now revealed in unprecedented detail the structural changes in the bacterial ribosome which results in resistance to the antibiotic erythromycin. Multiresistant bacterial pathogens that are insensitive to virtually all available antibiotics are one of ...

Tracing how the embryo takes over

07-Mar-2014

Embryonic development is initially controlled by maternal genetic information stored in the egg. LMU researchers now describe a methodology that allows the succeeding activation of the zygotic genome to be mapped at high resolution. In multicellular organisms, the earliest steps in embryonic ...

200-year long dispute resolved: First direct evidence that elemental fluorine occurs in nature

09-Jul-2012

Fluorine is the most reactive chemical element. That is why it is not found in nature in its elemental form, but only in compounds, such as fluorite – that was the accepted scientific doctrine so far. A special fluorite, the “fetid fluorite” or “antozonite”, has been the subject of many ...

High-resolution measurement of photocurrents

18-Jun-2012

The continuing trend toward miniaturization in electronics demands the use of new materials. Components made of carbon nanotubes may meet this need – and the properties of single nanotube devices can now be characterized with the required resolution. Given the demand for further miniaturization ...
