Nanotechnology

Small but effective – purposefully employed nanostructures can lend new, unique properties to materials. Because nano-innovations can lead to product enhancements or even new products in a wide range of industries, research and development in nanotechnology has been supported with several thousand million euros of public funding in the EU over the past ten years.

  • Putting a nanomachine to work

    A team of chemists at LMU has successfully coupled the directed motion of a light-activated molecular motor to a different chemical unit – thus taking an important step toward the realization of synthetic nanomachines. Molecular motors are chemical compounds that convert energy into directed motions more

  • Complete filling of batches of nanopipettes

    Nanopipettes, in which a nanoscale channel is filled with a solution, are used in all kinds of nanotechnology applications, including scanning-probe microscopy. Bringing a solution into a nanopipette with a pore diameter below 10 nanometer is challenging, however, since capillary forces prevent the more

  • More efficient risk assessment for nanomaterials

    Nanotechnology is booming, but risk assessment for these tiny particles is a laborious process that presents significant challenges to the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR). To find more efficient test methods, researchers at the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ) in more
