Quantum Sensors for High-Precision Magnetometry of Superconductors

04-May-2016

Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute and the Department of Physics at the University of Basel have developed a new method that has enabled them to image magnetic fields on the nanometer scale at temperatures close to absolute zero for the first time. They used spins in special diamonds ...

Mimicking the ingenuity of nature

04-May-2016

A clean, climate-friendly energy source that is virtually inexhaustible: This is the promise artificial photosynthesis holds. Chemists from the University of Würzburg have now got one step closer to reaching this goal. Nature shows how to do it: Photosynthesis is a process used by plants to ...

An Experiment Seeks to Make Quantum Physics Visible to the Naked Eye

04-May-2016

Predictions from quantum physics have been confirmed by countless experiments, but no one has yet detected the quantum physical effect of entanglement directly with the naked eye. This should now be possible thanks to an experiment proposed by a team around a theoretical physicist at the ...

Little ANTs: Researchers build the world's tiniest engine

04-May-2016

Researchers have developed the world's tiniest engine - just a few billionths of a metre in size - which uses light to power itself. The nanoscale engine, developed by researchers at the University of Cambridge, could form the basis of future nano-machines that can navigate in water, sense the ...

Method stabilizes, enhances phosphorene

04-May-2016

Two years ago, Northwestern University's Mark Hersam discovered a way to stabilize exfoliated black phosphorus - or phosphorene - a layered semiconductor that chemically degrades in open air but shows great promise for electronics. By encapsulating it in aluminum oxide, he was able to stabilize ...

Tiny microbots that can clean up water

Self-propelled tiny ‘microbots’ that can remove pollution from contaminated water developed.

03-May-2016

Working with colleagues in Barcelona and Singapore, Samuel Sánchez’s group used graphene oxide to make their microscale motors, which are able to adsorb lead from industrial wastewater from a level of 1000 parts-per-billion to down to below 50 parts-per-billion in just an hour. The lead can ...

Micro labs control chemical processes from the inside

Electronically controlled reactions

03-May-2016

Autonomous micro labs the size of cells that monitor chemical systems from the inside – pure fiction, as yet. But several crucial steps have been taken. Lablet, is the name Prof Dr John McCaskill from the Ruhr-Universität Bochum has given to the microscopic electronic component that he has been ...

2+1 is Not Always 3

In the microworld unity is not always strength

03-May-2016

If a person pushes a broken-down car alone, there is a certain effect. If another person helps, the result is the sum of their efforts. If two micro-particles are pushing another microparticle, however, the resulting effect may not necessarily be the sum their efforts. A recent study published in ...

Bees research shows not all neonicotinoids are the same

03-May-2016

The group of chemical insecticides known as neonicotinoids have been identified as presenting a serious risk to bee populations, leading to bans on their use. But at least one may be unfairly named among the offenders when it comes to risks to bumblebees, according to new research led by the ...
