  • Contacting the molecular world through graphene nanoribbons

    A single molecule can behave as the smallest electronic component of an electronic system. With this premise in mind, researchers in the field of molecular electronics have endeavoured in the last years to develop new approaches that bring closer the long-awaited objective of using molecules as elec more

  • Liquid crystals form nano rings

    At DESY's X-ray source PETRA III, scientists have investigated an intriguing form of self-assembly in liquid crystals: When the liquid crystals are filled into cylindrical nanopores and heated, their molecules form ordered rings as they cool – a condition that otherwise does not naturally occur in t more

  • Silk fibers could be high-tech 'natural metamaterials'

    New research has demonstrated how the nano-architecture of a silkworm's fiber causes "Anderson localization of light," a discovery that could lead to various innovations and a better understanding of light transport and heat transfer. The discovery also could help create synthetic materials and stru more

Plasmonics and Nanophotonics

The fields of plasmonics and nanophotonics encompass the science and engineering of optical interactions with nanostructures. Prospects of enhanced light harvesting, subwavelength confinement and strong local electromagnetic fields near nanoscale objects have motivated extensive investigation of nan


Nanomaterials in food and food-related products (applications, characterisation and regulation)

The use of nanomaterials such as ultra-fine powders, additives or complex nanostructures in food and drink products has distinct advantages as well as potential risks. The advantages may be listed in great number from novel functionality, flavours and product texture to packaging, longevity and cost
