Disruptive 2D mass spectrometry spin-out secures seed investment

18-Jun-2019

Verdel Instruments Ltd - a spin-out company of the University of Warwick UK – has developed new disruptive two-dimensional mass spectrometry (2DMS) technology and raised seed investment of over £230,000 from Longwall Ventures and Innovate UK. Designed by world-leading researchers, this is the ...

New Quantum Dot Microscope Shows Electric Potentials of Individual Atoms

17-Jun-2019

A team of researchers from Jülich in cooperation with the University of Magdeburg has developed a new method to measure the electric potentials of a sample at atomic accuracy. Using conventional methods, it was virtually impossible until now to quantitatively record the electric potentials that ...

How to separate nanoparticles by “shape”

New strategy to separate molecules

13-Jun-2019

In our daily lives, the purpose and function of an item is defined by either its material, e.g. a rain jacket is fabricated of water-proof material, or its shape, e.g. a wheel is round to enable a rolling motion. What is the impact of the two factors on the nanoscale? The impact of material, ...

Fiber-optic probe can see molecular bonds

Pointing the new nanoscopy tool like a Harry Potter wand reveals a high-resolution image of molecules

12-Jun-2019

In "Avengers: Endgame," Tony Stark warned Scott Lang that sending him into the quantum realm and bringing him back would be a "billion-to-one cosmic fluke." In reality, shrinking a light beam to a nanometer-sized point to spy on quantum-scale light-matter interactions and retrieving the ...

Merck and Rigaku Form Partnership to Develop Novel Molecular Structure Analysis Technology

11-Jun-2019

Merck and Rigaku Corp., Tokyo, Japan, have signed a joint development agreement to develop lab consumables based on crystalline sponge technology, which determines the absolute chemical structure of organic molecules and enables X-ray crystallography without crystallization of the analyte. “We ...

Direct Observation of Giant Molecules

Physicists achieved to form giant diatomic molecules and optically detect them afterwards by using a high-resolution objective

07-Jun-2019

The tiny size of conventional diatomic molecules in the sub-nanometer regime hinders direct optical resolution of their constituents. Physicists from the Quantum Many Body Division at MPQ led by Prof. Immanuel Bloch were able to bind pairs of highly excited atoms at a distance of one micrometer. ...

Exposing modern forgers

Chemical processes extend radiocarbon dating

06-Jun-2019

Researchers at ETH Zurich have developed a process that can provide conclusive evidence with regard to modern fakes of paintings, even in cases where the forger used old materials. This verification process requires less than 200 micrograms of paint. Art forgeries have been around since time ...

On-site detection of hazardous substances

05-Jun-2019

Together with partners from research and industry, Fraunhofer IAF has developed a hand-held scanner for hazardous substances within the EU project CHEQUERS. The sensor detects explosive, toxic and other dangerous substances in real time and will help emergency personnel with on-site detections at ...

Sensitive new laser technique detects volatile organic compounds

Accurate measurements of mixed airborne molecules could improve breath alcohol tests, climate research and sensors for occupational health and safety

05-Jun-2019

Researchers have developed a new way of operating miniature quantum cascade lasers (QCLs) to rapidly measure the absorption spectra of different organic molecules in the air simultaneously. The technique offers a sensitive method for detecting low concentrations of volatile organic compounds ...

Original kilogram replaced

New International System of Units (SI) entered into force

23-May-2019

In addition to Ampere, Kelvin, Mol and Co., the kilogram also is now defined by a natural constant. In concrete terms, this means that the original kilogram, which has been the measure of all things for 130 years, has now served its purpose in Paris. This is made possible by the single crystals ...
