The C.H.S. research groups are supported by the Chica and Heinz Schaller Foundation for a period of five years. In addition to funding the position of group leader, the foundation also provides funds for one postdoctoral researcher, one doctoral candidate, and one technical assistant. Funds are also made available for equipment and materials.The research groups were established between October 2011 and April 2012 at the Cluster of Excellence CellNetworks and the German Cancer Research Center. “Our aim is to strengthen basic biomedical research in Heidelberg, especially in the fields of infectious diseases and the neurosciences”, notes founder Prof. Dr. Chica Schaller. After an international call for proposals, five outstanding young researchers, who previously worked in Japan, the USA, Great Britain, and Switzerland, amongst others, were recruited to Heidelberg University and the DKFZ.

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.
This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...
Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.
"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...
In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.
A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...
By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
