A pigment from ancient Egypt to modern microscopy

Research team produces new nanosheets for near infrared imaging

25-Mar-2020

Egyptian blue is one of the oldest manmade colour pigments. It adorns, for instance, the crown of the world famous bust of Nefertiti. But the pigment can do even more. An international research team led by Dr Sebastian Kruss from the Institute of Physical Chemistry at the University of Göttingen ...

Graphene layer enables advance in super-resolution microscopy

Eesearchers develop a new method allowing ten-fold improvement in optical resolution

05-Sep-2019

Researchers at the University of Göttingen have developed a new method that takes advantage of the unusual properties of graphene to electromagnetically interact with fluorescing (light-emitting) molecules. This method allows scientists to optically measure extremely small distances, in the order ...

How the cell protects itself

Researchers discover the mechanism that prevents damage caused by shortened proteins

14-Jun-2019

The cell contains transcripts of the genetic material, which migrate from the cell nucleus to another part of the cell. This movement protects the genetic transcripts from the recruitment of “spliceosomes”. If this protection does not happen, the entire cell is in danger: meaning that cancer and ...

Researchers combine light and X-ray microscopy for comprehensive insights

11-Sep-2018

Researchers at the University of Goettingen have used a novel microscopy method. In doing so they were able to show both the illuminated and the "dark side" of the cell. The team led by Prof. Dr. Tim Salditt and Prof. Dr. Sarah Köster from the Institute of X-Ray Physics "attached" small ...

Maelstroms in the heart

New, promising imaging technique for cardiac arrhythmias

23-Feb-2018

Every five minutes in Germany alone, a person dies of sudden cardiac arrest or fibrillation, the most common cause of death worldwide. This is partly due to the fact that doctors still do not fully understand exactly what goes on in the heart during the occurrence. Until now, it was impossible to ...

How do immune cells enter the cerebrospinal fluid and what is their function there?

11-Mar-2016

A research team headed by scientists at the Institute of Neuroimmunology and the Institute for Multiple Sclerosis Research (IMSF), University Medical Center Göttingen (UMG), has gained new insights into the immune function of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). They used real-time microscopy to film the ...

Filming the film: Scientists observe photographic exposure live at the nanoscale

Advanced method opens up new opportunities for investigation of dynamic processes

11-Jun-2015

Photoinduced chemical reactions are responsible for many fundamental processes and technologies, from energy conversion in nature to micro fabrication by photo-lithography. One process that is known from everyday's life and can be observed by the naked eye, is the exposure of photographic film. ...

Researchers watch lipid molecules in motion

X-ray stroboscope offers new insights into biomolecular dynamics

12-Sep-2014

Researchers from Göttingen in collaboration with colleagues from Augsburg have 'filmed' the movement of lipid molecules using an X-ray stroboscope at DESY. In the scientific journal Physical Review Letters, researchers lead by Professor Tim Salditt of the University of Göttingen report that ...
