Carbon-neutral “biofuel” from lakes

Lakes as huge energy stores

02-Apr-2021

Lakes store huge amounts of methane. In a new study, environmental scientists at the University of Basel offer suggestions for how it can be extracted and used as an energy source in the form of methanol. Discussion about the current climate crisis usually focuses on carbon dioxide (CO2). The ...

New class of substances for redox reactions

Pyrazinacenes can be reversibly oxidized and reduced

17-Mar-2021

An interdisciplinary, multinational research team presents a new class of chemical compounds that can be reversibly oxidized and reduced. The compounds known as 'pyrazinacenes' are simple, stable compounds that consist of a series of connected nitrogen-containing carbon rings. They are suitable ...

Kagome graphene promises exciting properties

It behaves as a semiconductor and may also have unusual electrical properties

18-Feb-2021

For the first time, physicists from the University of Basel have produced a graphene compound consisting of carbon atoms and a small number of nitrogen atoms in a regular grid of hexagons and triangles. This honeycomb-structured “kagome lattice” behaves as a semiconductor and may also have ...

A tiny instrument to measure the faintest magnetic fields

Applications in areas such as medicine, besides being used to research new materials

08-Sep-2020

Physicists at the University of Basel have developed a minuscule instrument able to detect extremely faint magnetic fields. At the heart of the superconducting quantum interference device are two atomically thin layers of graphene, which the researchers combined with boron nitride. Instruments ...

Efficient valves for electron spins

New concept developed that uses the electron spin to switch an electrical current

17-Aug-2020

Researchers at the University of Basel in collaboration with colleagues from Pisa have developed a new concept that uses the electron spin to switch an electrical current. In addition to fundamental research, such spin valves are also the key elements in spintronics – a type of electronics that ...

A highly light-absorbent and tunable material

New approach to developing optoelectronic devices

13-Aug-2020

By layering different two-dimensional materials, physicists at the University of Basel have created a novel structure with the ability to absorb almost all light of a selected wavelength. The achievement relies on a double layer of molybdenum disulfide. The new structure’s particular properties ...

Porous nitrogen-doped graphene ribbons for future electronics

Attractive for applications in electronics and quantum computing

13-Jul-2020

A team of physicists and chemists has produced the first porous graphene ribbons in which specific carbon atoms in the crystal lattice are replaced with nitrogen atoms. These ribbons have semiconducting properties that make them attractive for applications in electronics and quantum computing, as ...

Flatter graphene, faster electrons

20-Apr-2020

Bumps on a road slow down our pace, so do corrugations in graphene to travelling electrons. By flattening the corrugations out, we help electrons move effectively faster through a graphene sheet. Limits because of microscopic distortions The sample quality of graphene has been improved ...

Perturbation-free studies of single molecules

New applications in the fields of quantum science, spectroscopy and chemistry

16-Mar-2020

Researchers of the University of Basel have developed a new method with which individual isolated molecules can be studied precisely – without destroying the molecule or even influencing its quantum state. This highly sensitive technique for probing molecules is widely applicable and paves the ...

2D materials: arrangement of atoms measured in silicene

03-Jan-2020

Silicene consists of a single layer of silicon atoms. In contrast to the ultra-flat material graphene, which is made of carbon, silicene shows surface irregularities that influence its electronic properties. Now, physicists from the University of Basel have been able to precisely determine this ...
