"Cavity Protection Effect" Helps to Conserve Quantum Information

20-08-2014

Coupling atomic spins in diamonds to microwave resonators could lead to new quantum technologies. Researchers at the Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien) have now managed to dramatically prolong the time these systems can store information. The electronics we use for our computers only knows ...

Efficient production of hydrogen by algae

20-08-2014

Microalgae need only sunlight and water for the production of hydrogen. However, in order to make hydrogen production by microalgae economically feasible their efficiency has to be increased by 1-2 orders of magnitude. In the current issue of Energy and Environmental Science scientists from the ...

The interstellar dust particles from the Stardust mission show great variations in their elemental composition and structure

19-08-2014

The space between the stars is not empty, but filled with interstellar matter – gas and dust particles. But all dust is not the same: An international team from 33 research institutes, including the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry in Mainz, discovered that the structure and chemical ...

On the edge of graphene

19-08-2014

Researchers at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) have discovered that the conductivity at the edges of graphene devices is different to that of the central material. Local scanning electrical techniques were used to examine the local nanoscale electronic properties of epitaxial graphene, in ...

Polymers in two dimensions

14-08-2014

The ultrathin material graphene is the current favourite of many materials scientists. ETH researchers have now managed to create a synthetic polymer that is almost as thin. This is the first time that a flat synthetic polymer has been produced and its structure analysed using X-ray ...

Flexible tapes from the nanoworld

Chemical reaction yields "tapes" of porphin molecules

14-08-2014

Dr.Wilhelm Auwärter and his team are working on a research project to develop tiny flat molecule tapes at the Department of Physics of Technische Universität München (TUM). These structures could find versatile applications. Via direct coupling on a silver surface, the scientists successfully ...

Where scientists from abroad want to conduct research

Universities in smaller cities becoming increasingly popular

13-08-2014

The universities in the major conurbations Berlin and Munich are in particular demand among foreign researchers according to the Humboldt Rankings released today. The ranking list shows how many researchers have come to Germany on a fellowship from the Humboldt Foundation in the last five years ‒ ...

Living organisms in oil

13-08-2014

Miniscule water droplets in oil provide a habitat for a number of microorganisms. Scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum München have discovered that these communities of microorganisms play a part in breaking down the oil and have published their findings in the journal Science. Oil might not, at ...

Synthesis of structurally pure carbon nanotubes using molecular seeds

08-08-2014

For the first time, researchers at Empa and the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research have succeeded in "growing" single-wall carbon nanotubes (CNT) with a single predefined structure - and hence with identical electronic properties. And here is how they pulled it off: the CNTs "assembled ...

Toward fuel cells built from renewable and abundant components

07-08-2014

In the development of fuel cells the effort of generations of scientist and engineers have led to efficient and stable catalysts based on noble metals. These catalysts have reached the required threshold in terms of performance for applications such as electric cars. However, the high costs of ...
