Heat flow through single molecules detected

After several years of theorizing and experimenting, an international team of researchers including scientists at Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (OIST) has finally succeeded in measuring how heat passes between two gold electrodes through a single molecule. They report their findings in Nature on July 17, 2019.

Around 2000, scientists first measured how electrons flow through single molecules. Other properties, such as how molecules emit light, have also been studied....

Better thermal conductivity by adjusting the arrangement of atoms

Adjusting the thermal conductivity of materials is one of the challenges nanoscience is currently facing. Together with colleagues from the Netherlands and Spain, researchers from the University of Basel have shown that the atomic vibrations that determine heat generation in nanowires can be controlled through the arrangement of atoms alone. The scientists will publish the results shortly in the journal Nano Letters.

In the electronics and computer industry, components are becoming ever smaller and more powerful. However, there are problems with the heat generation. It is...

Neutrino-Observatorium IceCube am Südpol wird ausgebaut

Das internationale Neutrino-Observatorium IceCube am Südpol wird in den kommenden Jahren erheblich erweitert. Zusätzlich zu den bestehenden 5160 Sensoren werden weitere 700 optische Module im ewigen Eis der Antarktis installiert. Die National Science Foundation in den USA hat 23 Millionen US-Dollar für den Ausbau bewilligt. Die Helmholtz-Zentren DESY und KIT unterstützen mit insgesamt 5,7 Millionen Euro (6,4 Millionen US-Dollar) den Bau von 430 neuen optischen Modulen, mit denen das Observatorium unter anderem zu einem Neutrinolabor erweitert wird. Mit insgesamt neun beteiligten Universitäten und den beiden Helmholtz-Zentren ist Deutschland der größte IceCube-Partner nach den USA.

IceCube hatte im vergangenen Jahr überzeugende Hinweise auf eine erste Quelle hochenergetischer Neutrinos aus dem Kosmos veröffentlicht. “Das IceCube-Upgrade...

Im Focus: A miniature stretchable pump for the next generation of soft robots

Soft robots have a distinct advantage over their rigid forebears: they can adapt to complex environments, handle fragile objects and interact safely with humans. Made from silicone, rubber or other stretchable polymers, they are ideal for use in rehabilitation exoskeletons and robotic clothing. Soft bio-inspired robots could one day be deployed to explore remote or dangerous environments.

Most soft robots are actuated by rigid, noisy pumps that push fluids into the machines' moving parts. Because they are connected to these bulky pumps by tubes,...

Im Focus: Vehicle Emissions: New sensor technology to improve air quality in cities

Researchers at TU Graz are working together with European partners on new possibilities of measuring vehicle emissions.

Today, air pollution is one of the biggest challenges facing European cities. As part of the Horizon 2020 research project CARES (City Air Remote Emission...

Im Focus: Self healing robots that "feel pain"

Over the next three years, researchers from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, University of Cambridge, École Supérieure de Physique et de Chimie Industrielles de la ville de Paris (ESPCI-Paris) and Empa will be working together with the Dutch Polymer manufacturer SupraPolix on the next generation of robots: (soft) robots that ‘feel pain’ and heal themselves. The partners can count on 3 million Euro in support from the European Commission.

Soon robots will not only be found in factories and laboratories, but will be assisting us in our immediate environment. They will help us in the household, to...
