Completely new source of light for many applications
Physicists from the University of Bonn have developed a completely new source of light, a so-called Bose-Einstein condensate consisting of photons. Until recently, expert had thought this impossible. This method may potentially be suitable for designing novel light sources resembling lasers that ...
Materials based on water ferns could reduce fuel consumption massively
The hairs on the surface of water ferns could allow ships to have a 10 per cent decrease in fuel consumption. The plant has the rare ability to put on a gauzy skirt of air under water. Researchers at the University of Bonn, Rostock and Karlsruhe now show in the journal Advanced Materials (doi: ...
First evidence that a method proposed 3 decades ago really works
In their experiment the scientists tested a completely new principle of cooling. For this, they used the property that atoms can be stimulated by light. In this process an electron changes from its orbit around the atom's nucleus to an orbit that is further away. However, this is only successful ...
PTB measures the pinpointed transport of therapeutics for cardiovascular diseases
Health professionals send genes and healthy cells on their way through the bloodstream so that they can, for example, repair tissue damage to arteries. But do they reach their destination in sufficient quantities? Scientists of the PTB have developed a highly sensitive measuring method with which ...
Minerals act as oxygen reservoirs, stopping the earth from becoming a barren planet
If our planet did not have the ability to store oxygen in the deep reaches of its mantle there would probably be no life on its surface. This is the conclusion reached by scientists at the University of Bonn who have subjected the mineral majorite to close laboratory examination. Majorite ...
In addition to the well-known compounds carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide, carbon and oxygen form other compounds of which carbon suboxide (C3O2) is one of the most stable. C3O2 was discovered in 1906; it is a linear molecule in which all five atoms are bound to each other with double bonds, ...
