High-efficiency water splitting process revealed
Reaction of high interest to clean-energy innovations is closely analysed in X-ray study
17-Feb-2023 - Experiments at DESY’s light sources PETRA III and FLASH have revealed the complex mode of action behind the artificial splitting of water at its most efficient level. Using X-rays, a team led by DESY leading scientist Simone Techert managed to observe the interaction of water with a perovskite, a ...
Soft X-ray method promises nanocarrier breakthroughs
Before the huge potential of tiny nanocarriers for highly targeted drug delivery and environmental clean-up can be realized, scientists first need to be able to see them
27-May-2021 - Currently researchers have to rely on attaching fluorescent dyes or heavy metals to label parts of organic nanocarrier structures for investigation, often changing them in the process. A new technique using chemically-sensitive "soft" X-rays offers a simpler, non-disruptive way of gaining insight ...
How deadly parasites ‘glide’ into human cells
X-ray analysis reveals structure of molecular machinery of malaria and toxoplasmosis pathogens
03-Nov-2020 - An investigation at DESY's X-ray source PETRA III provides new insights into the molecular machinery by which certain parasites travel through the human organism. The study, led by Christian Löw from the Hamburg branch of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory EMBL, analyzed the so-called ...
Researchers describe structure of SARS-CoV-2 proteins suitable for design of new drugs
04-Aug-2020 - COVID-19 has changed the lives of millions and even billions of people around the world. The disease is caused by SARS coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), an RNA virus, i.e. a virus that uses RNA to store its genetic information. In order to confront it, we must have a detailed understanding of the ...
X-ray experiments reveal important mechanism behind parkinsonian disorders
Gene defect in hereditary forms of the neurological disorder results in manganese poisoning inside cells
21-Jan-2019 - A new X-ray study has revealed one of the key mechanisms behind certain familial-parkinsonian disorders. The study demonstrates in detail how poisoning with the metal manganese occurs inside a cell, leading to parkinsonian symptoms. It found that a specific genetic defect results in manganese ...
