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.

  • Researchers turned transparent calcite into artificial gold

    For the first time in the world, researchers at Tel Aviv University developed an innovative nanotechnology that transforms a transparent calcite nanoparticle into a sparkling gold-like particle. In other words, they turned the transparent particle into a particle that is visible despite its very sma more

  • The invisible killer lurking in our consumer products

    Our consumer products, such as food, cosmetics and clothes, might be filled with nanomaterials - unbeknownst to us. The use of nanomaterials remains unregulated and they do not show up in lists of ingredients. This is a cause of concern since nanomaterials can be more dangerous than COVID-19 in the more

  • Metallic surfaces help molecular quantum switch

    The quantum dynamics of hydrogen is central to many problems in nature, being strongly influenced by the environment in which it takes place. In their contribution to PRL, members of the Lise Meitner Group at the MPSD address hydrogen transfer within a supported molecular switch, showing that the su more
