Ultrafast Electron Dynamics in Space and Time

"We believe that our findings represent a crucial breakthrough towards the goal of tracing electrons through chemical reactions in space and time"

22-Feb-2021

In textbooks and explanatory videos, they are often depicted as colourful balloons or clouds: electron orbitals provide information on the whereabouts of electrons in molecules, a bit like fuzzy snapshots. In order to understand the exchange of electrons in chemical reactions, it is not only ...

Talent Scout in the Cell Factory

New biosensor facilitates the search for efficient microorganisms

07-Oct-2020

They’re small, but mighty: microorganisms. The industry known as “white biotechnology” takes advantage of their potential in a variety of ways, for example to produce chemicals, medicines, or dietary supplements. The little powerhouses’ work can be found in a whole series of products, the number ...

Genetic key to "healthy" tea

Genome of an ancient tea tree elucidated and more than 200 different tea varieties analysed

03-Aug-2020

Tea (Camellia sinensis) is one of the world's most popular drinks with a wide range of flavours and health benefits. Researchers from Huazhong Agricultural University of Wuhan (China), Forschungszentrum Jülich, Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf and the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Plant ...

New Indication of a Link Between Alzheimer’s and Diabetes

High-resolution 3D model shows strong similarity in the structure of the fibrils

17-Jun-2020

Pathological protein clumps are characteristic of a series of diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, and type 2 diabetes. Scientists at Forschungszentrum Jülich, Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf, and Maastricht University have now used cryo-electron microscopy to obtain a ...

Assemblies of proteins relevant not only for Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease

23-Aug-2019

Amyloid fibrils play a crucial role in neurodegenerative illnesses. Scientists from Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf (HHU) and Forschungszentrum Jülich have now been able to use cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) to decode the spatial structure of the fibrils that are formed from PI3K SH3 ...

Nano Puzzle for More Stable Data Storage

18-Jul-2019

Being able to arrange individual atoms systematically on a surface has nowadays become routine for researchers. However, being able to use them as tiny magnetic data storage devices for computers is still a long way off. If this could be achieved, it would bring with it enormous advantages: more ...

New Quantum Dot Microscope Shows Electric Potentials of Individual Atoms

17-Jun-2019

A team of researchers from Jülich in cooperation with the University of Magdeburg has developed a new method to measure the electric potentials of a sample at atomic accuracy. Using conventional methods, it was virtually impossible until now to quantitatively record the electric potentials that ...

Looking deeper into brain function

New concept to discover the "operational functions" of brain areas

29-Mar-2018

As neuroscience enters the era of big data bases, a new approach could offer a deeper and more systematic understanding of brain function, HBP scientists argue. To uncover connections between brain regions and specific cognitive functions, neuroscientists have long made extensive use of ...

New electron source for materials analysis

16-Mar-2017

How can solar cells be made more efficient? How can solar and wind energy be best stored for later use? Technologies for the transformation of the German energy sector (Energiewende) require tailor-made materials which are both affordable and efficient. One important tool in the search for such ...
