Sensing magnetism in atomic resolution with just a scanning tunneling microscope

Researchers use single molecule on microscope tip as a sensor to detect magnetic moments with unprecedented spatial resolution

07-Nov-2019

Scientists from the University of Strasbourg, France, in close collaboration with colleagues from the research centers in San Sebastián, Spain, and Jülich, Germany, have achieved a breakthrough in detecting the magnetic moments of nanoscale structures. They succeeded in making the magnetic ...

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 ...

Cellular "Light Switch" Analysed Using Neutron Scattering

29-Mar-2016

The internal movements of proteins can be important for their functionality; researchers are discovering more and more examples of this. Now, with the aid of neutron spectroscopy, dynamic processes have also been detected in so-called "LOV photoreceptors" by scientists from Jülich, Aachen, ...

Alzheimer’s Disease: New Test Identifies the Most Promising Drug Candidates

16-Oct-2015

Despite enormous efforts of scientists around the world, an effective and causal treatment against Alzheimer’s disease is yet to be found. Many substances that seemed promising initially, later failed in clinical trials, proving ineffective only after years of costly and time consuming tests. ...

Imprisoned molecules move

Crystal cage does not hinder molecule movement

06-Oct-2015

X-ray crystallography reveals the three-dimensional structure of a molecule, thus making it possible to understand how it works and potentially use this knowledge to subsequently modulate its activity, especially for therapeutic or biotechnological purposes. For the first time, a study has shown ...

Researchers Develop Ultrahigh-Resolution 3D Microscopy Technique for Electric Fields

Down to the Quantum Dot

09-Jul-2015

Using a single molecule as a sensor, scientists in Jülich have successfully imaged electric potential fields with unrivalled precision. The ultrahigh-resolution images provide information on the distribution of charges in the electron shells of single molecules and even atoms. The 3D technique is ...
