Boundaries no barrier for thermoelectricity

Rice researchers find potentially useful electrical phenomenon in gold nanowires Though the Summer Olympics were postponed, there’s at least one place to see agile hurdlers go for the gold. You…

Observation charge accumulation at nanocavity on plasmonic photocatalyst

Strong interaction between plasmonic nanoparticles and free-space light induced the evanescently confined modes on the nanoparticle surfaces, which holds great promise in plasmonic nanophotonic technologies. Plasmonic nanoparticle with the capability…

Natural radiation can interfere with quantum computers

Study shows the need to shield qubits from natural radiation, like cosmic rays from outer space A multidisciplinary research team has shown that radiation from natural sources in the environment…

Reducing side effects during the treatment of brain tumours

Interdisciplinary research team at Kiel University develops a microchannel matrix for tailored drug release. Glioblastomas are among the most aggressive brain tumours in adults and difficult to treat due to…

On the way to the optical cochlear implant

The cochlear implant (CI) enables worldwide over 700,000 people with profoundly reduced hearing and deaf people to hear again. So far, the auditory nerve has…

How smart, ultrathin nanosheets go fishing for proteins

An interdisciplinary team from Frankfurt and Jena has developed a kind of bait with which to fish protein complexes out of mixtures. Thanks to this “bait”, the…

Biodiversity in the Agricultural Landscape

How does ecological farming influence plant biodiversity in the agricultural landscape?

A fresh twist in chiral topology

The concept of chirality is well-established in science: when an object cannot be superimposed on its mirror image, both the object and its mirror image are…
