New insights into the properties of sweet coating: The results could be used to optimize the industrial production process in the future
04-Sep-2023 - For many, the german sweet "Amerikaner" - a pastry with a sweet, whitish coating - is a childhood memory at the bakery. But there's a lot of physics and chemistry in the frosting. A team led by Thomas Vilgis at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research, together with colleagues from the ...
With light into the nanoworld: How optical microscopes allow detailed investigations of nanoparticles
The goal: the development of novel nanoparticles for biomedical applications.
21-Dec-2022 - It sounds like trying to scan a vinyl record with a hammer: Light is actually too "coarse" to image small particles on the nanometer scale. However, in their project "Supercol"- funded by the European Union - scientists want to achieve just that: The investigation of nanoparticles with light. To ...

Opportunities for a "new" chemistry
20-Apr-2022 - Chemical syntheses in liquids and gases take place in three-dimensional space. Random collisions between molecules have to result in something new in an extremely short time. But there is another way: on a gold surface under ultrahigh vacuum conditions, molecules lying still next to each other ...
How graphene nanoparticles improve the resolution of microscopes
Small particles, big effects
22-Nov-2019 - Conventional light microscopes cannot distinguish structures when they are separated by a distance smaller than, roughly, the wavelength of light. Superresolution microscopy, developed since the 1980s, lifts this limitation, using fluorescent moieties. Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for ...
Empa researchers clarify reaction pathway to fabricate graphene-like materials
11-Nov-2010 - 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 ...
