    Surface modification using accelerated electrons

    Surfaces must satisfy a wide range of requirements: they need to be decorative, and even contribute substantially to hygiene. They also play a large role in biomedicine. There are numerous processes for functionalizing surfaces, depending on the application. Many are already well establishe ... more

    Sensor the size of a nitrogen atom investigates hard drives

    Integrated circuitry is becoming increasingly complex. These days a Pentium processor contains some 30 million transistors. And the magnetic structures found in hard drives measure just 10 to 20 nanometers across – less than a flu virus at 80 to 120 nanometers in diameter. Dimensions are ra ... more

    Flexible bonding: hard and soft at the same time

    To connect components with each other, gluing is preferred today instead of welding, riveting or using screws. That makes cars, planes and agricultural machines lighter. The requirements placed on the adhesive are high, though: it has to be flexible enough to compensate for stress peaks in ... more
