The marine super glue

Mega-strong and very mobile

09-Aug-2016

Barnacles exude an adhesive with exceptional bonding properties. In a project supported by the Austrian Science Fund FWF, biologists from Vienna have investigated this substance which has enormous medical and engineering potential and have thereby gained many new insights. It was a typical case ...

Stability of cheap solar cells improved

04-Aug-2016

The stability of a very efficient and cheap material for solar cells has now been enhanced by up to two orders of magnitude. The material manipulations that enabled this enhancement were developed in a project supported by the Austrian Science Fund FWF. Lead-halide perovskites are the darling of ...

Silicon chip "replaces" rare earths

03-Mar-2011

Rare earths are an expensive and necessary component of strong permanent magnets. However, their use for this purpose can be optimised and thereby reduced. This has been demonstrated in computer simulations by a Special Research Program funded by the Austrian Science Fund FWF. The results show ...

New Light On Electron Density

Measuring electron orbitals

18-Nov-2009

For the first time, it has been possible to measure electron density in individual molecular states using what is known as the photoelectric effect. Now published in Science, this method represents a key building block in the development of organic semiconductor elements. Supported by the ...

Under observation - restless atoms cause materials to age

15-Sep-2009

Atoms have the habit of jumping through solids - a practice that physicists have recently been able to follow for the first time using a brand new method. This scientific advance was made possible thanks to the utilisation of electron synchrotrons. The detailed findings of the project, backed by ...

Stable thanks to dynamics: DNA component resists UV radiation

25-Feb-2009

Complex computer simulations have, for the first time, allowed scientists to examine in detail the processes that help to ensure the stability of DNA when exposed to UV light. The findings, achieved primarily in relation to DNA component 9H-adenine, have been published in the Journal of the ...
