The origins of abiotic species


How can life originate from a lifeless chemical soup? This question has puzzled scientists since Darwin's 'Origin of species'. University of Groningen chemistry professor Sijbren Otto studies 'chemical evolution' to see if self-organization and autocatalysis will provide the answer. His research ...


Superconductor survives ultra-high magnetic field


Physicists from the universities of Groningen and Nijmegen (the Netherlands) and Hong Kong have discovered that transistors made of ultrathin layers molybdeendisulfide (MoS2) are not only superconducting at low temperatures but also stay superconducting in a high magnetic field. This is a unique ...

First realization of an electric circuit with a magnetic insulator using spin waves


Researchers at the University of Groningen, Utrecht University, the Université de Bretagne Occidentale and the FOM Foundation have found that it is possible to make an electric circuit with a magnetic insulator. This was first deemed impossible. The circuit is realized using spin waves: wave-like ...


Breakthrough may lead to industrial production of graphene devices


With properties that promise faster computers, better sensors and much more, graphene has been dubbed the 'miracle material'. But progress in producing it on an industrial scale without compromising its properties has proved elusive. University of Groningen scientists may now have made a ...

Thin film produces new chemistry in 'nanoreactor'


Physicists at the University of Groningen led by Professor of Functional Nanomaterials Beatriz Noheda have discovered a new manganese compound that is produced by tension in the crystal structure of terbium manganese oxide. The technique they used to create this new material could open the way to ...


DNA-based asymmetric organometallic catalysis in water


Scientists studying organometallic catalysts attached to DNA have used the technology to perform cyclopropanation reactions in water, and have reported efficient yields and high enantiomeric excesses. By attaching the catalytically active metal complex to a DNA scaffold, the chirality of the DNA ...

A nano car with molecular 4-wheel drive


Reduced to the max: the emission-free, noiseless 4-wheel drive car, jointly developed by Empa researchers and their Dutch colleagues, represents lightweight construction at its most extreme. The nano car consists of just a single molecule and travels on four electrically-driven wheels in an ...


Donut-shaped structures could lead to self-cleaning surfaces


A straightforward method for making films of doughnut-shaped (toroidal) structures could lead to improved smart materials, such as self-cleaning surfaces and scaffolds for biological sensors. Ordered patterns of the structures can by formed by simply dropping then evaporating solutions of chiral ...


Mysterious charge transport in self-assembled monolayer transistors unraveled


An international team of researchers from the Netherlands, Russia and Austria discovered that monolayer coverage and channel length set the mobility in self-assembled monolayer field-effect transistors (SAMFETs). This opens the door to extremely sensitive chemical sensors that can be produced in ...
