Clearstream began 2005 with growth in its core businesses and new business streams continuing progress made in 2004. The value of assets held in custody on behalf of customers rose to approximately EUR 7.7 trillion, a rise of 2.5 percent from the same month last year. The number of international transactions processed by Clearstream stood at 1.5 million for January 2005 compared to 1.7 million for the same month last year. Of these transactions, 15 percent are registered as stock exchange transactions, 85 percent were Over the Counter (OTC) transactions. For domestic settlement transactions in Germany, the figure for the month stood at 2.6 million representing a decrease of 23 percent due to central counterparty efficiencies (January 2004: 3.5 million). The ratio for domestic settlement transactions was 66 percent stock exchange transactions to 34 percent OTC transactions.
Within the Global Securities Financing services business at Clearstream strong growth continued with the monthly average outstandings reaching EUR 140 billion. The combined services include tripartite repo, securities lending and collateral management and collectively experienced a rise of over 29.4 percent from the same month last year (January 2004: EUR 108.2 billion).
In January, Clearstream launched an enhanced version of its investment funds service called Vestima+. The improved investment funds service showed further volume increases with the number of investment funds related instructions processed reaching 165,795 in January 2005, a rise of 24.2 percent from the same month last year (January 2004: 133,464).

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.
To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...
The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.
Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...

Physicists in the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (run jointly by LMU Munich and the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics) have developed an attosecond electron microscope that allows them to visualize the dispersion of light in time and space, and observe the motions of electrons in atoms.
The most basic of all physical interactions in nature is that between light and matter. This interaction takes place in attosecond times (i.e. billionths of a...
