single molecules

Molecular telegraphy

– precisely sending and receiving single molecules Researchers of the University of Graz, Austria, managed to send single molecules to a distant location and receive them from there. The study…

Charges cascading along a molecular chain

Removing one charged molecule from a one-dimensional array causes the others to alternately turn ‘on’ or ‘off,’ paving the way for information transfer in tiny circuits. Small electronic circuits power…

Researchers observe ultrafast processes of single molecules in liquid helium for the first time

Markus Koch, head of the research group Femtosecond Dynamics at the Institute of Experimental Physics at TU Graz, and his team develop new methods for…

Ultrafast stimulated emission microscopy of single nanocrystals in Science

Ultrafast microscopy studies entirely rely on detecting nanoparticles or single molecules with luminescence techniques, which require efficient emitters to…

The ever-changing brain: Shining a light on synaptic plasticity

Synapses – specialized structures in neurons – allow these nerve cells to communicate with one another. In the synapse, one neuron emits chemical messengers…

Heat flow through single molecules detected

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

Heat transport through single molecules

Combining novel theoretical and experimental approaches, researchers from the University of Michigan (USA), Kookmin University (South Korea), the University of…

Better microring sensors for optical applications

Despite the variety of schemes used for optical sensing, they all share the same principle: The quantity to be measured must leave a “fingerprint” on the…

New way of optical visualization of nano objects proposed

High-resolution optical microscopy methods promise breakthroughs in materials science, biology, and medicine. Today, their possibilities basically reach those…

Copper compound as promising quantum computing unit

Quantum computers could vastly increase the capabilities of IT systems, bringing major changes worldwide. However, there is still a long way to go before such…
