MPQ/Caltech scientists demonstrate mechanical analogue to an optical laser with single ions
For decades there has been interest in phonon lasers that emit quanta of vibrational energy - so called phonons - instead of light. In solids, because of the short wavelength, the implementation of such a device would make it possible to achieve unprecedented resolution in imaging techniques like ...
Theoretical physicists of the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics reveal limitations of Density Functional Theory using Quantum Information Theory tools
The electric and magnetic properties of solids are impossible to calculate exactly: The complex interactions of the many electrons which underly these phenomena cannot be computed even by the most powerful classical computers. Here, the central task is to determine the ground state of the ...
Tracking down new active agents for cancer or malaria treatment could soon become easier - thanks to a computer program with which researchers from the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Physiology in Dortmund aim to facilitate the search for suitable pharmaceutical substances. The program, which ...
Two new construction manuals are now available for the world's smallest lamps. Based on these protocols, scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces have tailor-made nanoparticles that can be used as position lights on cell proteins and, possibly in the future as well, as ...
Scientists in Germany and the US generate highly oxidised diiron complexes that further our understanding on metalloenzymes in nature. Oxidised diiron species are used in nature in the active sites of several metalloenzymes, such as methane monooxygenase and ribonucleotide reductase. Methane ...
It has a beautiful, but also an unpleasant side: crystallization determines the shape of precious stones, but also causes the lime scale in washing machines. How this comes about, has been known for a long time - or has it? Scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces are now ...
Modern surface chemistry - fuel cells, artificial fertilizers and clean exhaust
The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has decided to award the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for 2007 to Gerhard Ertl ,Fritz-Haber-Institut der Max-Planck-Gesellschaft, Berlin, Germany "for his studies of chemical processes on solid surfaces". The Nobel Prize in Chemistry for 2007 is awarded for ...
A new type of high-frequency ion source developed at Max Planck Institute of Plasma Physics (IPP) in Garching near Munich has been chosen to heat the plasma of the ITER fusion test device. This was now decided, after a unanimous recommendation was made by the international body of experts ...
Overcoming Abbe's law in light microscopy
Max Planck Innovation GmbH, the technology transfer agency of the Max Planck Society, has signed a co-exclusive license agreement with Leica Microsystems and Carl Zeiss MicroImaging GmbH for the RESOLFT (reversible saturable optical fluorescent transitions) technology, a method providing ...
Scientists watch on the atomic level how individual molecules recognize each other
The body is an almost perfect machine. For it to function properly, each individual component, that is each molecule, must reliably fulfill its specific function. Each molecule must thus "recognize" other molecules and work with them. A team of researchers from the Max Planck Institute for Solid ...
