Verschleiss von nanokristallinen Metallschichten

Forscher vom Fraunhofer-Institut für Werkstoffmechanik IWM in Freiburg haben nun mit einer aufwendigen Computersimulation gezeigt, dass nanokristalline Schichten die Reibung zwar reduzieren, dass es aber dennoch zum Verschleiss kommen kann.

Atomic structure of key muscle component revealed

Adding to the growing fundamental understanding of the machinery of muscle cells, a group of biophysicists describe how actin filaments are stabilized at one of their ends to form a basic muscle structure called the sarcomere.

The birth of topological spintronics

The discovery of a new material combination that could lead to a more efficient approach to computer memory and logic is the first promising indication that it may be possible to build a practical technology with a novel material known as a 'topological insulator'. The research team's results show that such a scheme can be 10 times more efficient for controlling magnetic memory or logic than any other combination of materials measured to date.
