Bauanleitung für Nanolampen

Für die kleinsten Lampen der Welt gibt es jetzt gleich zwei neue Bauanleitungen. Nach diesen Plänen haben Wissenschaftler des Max-Planck-Instituts für Kolloid- und Grenzflächenforschung Nanopartikel maßgeschneidert, die als Positionsleuchten an Zellproteinen, künftig vielleicht aber auch als Lichtquellen für Bildschirme oder für die optische Informationstechnik dienen könnten.

Spintronic - the new electronic?

European researchers have developed novel concept devices using ferromagnetic semiconductors. Spintronic devices have created enormous advances in microelectronics, leading to faster, instant-on start times and orders-of-magnitude increases in data storage capacity. Spintronics is short for spin transport electronics ? electronic devices that use the spin of an electron to carry information.

Nerve repair with a crab shell and polyester mix

In the clothing industry it's common to mix natural and synthetic fibers. Take cotton and add polyester to make clothing that's soft, breathable and wrinkle free. Now researchers at the University of Washington are using the same principle for biomedical applications. Mixing chitosan, found in the shells of crabs and shrimp, with an industrial polyester creates a promising new material for the tiny tubes that support repair of a severed nerve, and could serve other medical uses.

Bio-friendly nanocrystals as individual investigators of activity within a cell

Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have created bright, stable and bio-friendly nanocrystals that act as individual investigators of activity within a cell. These ideal light emitting probes represent a significant step in scrutinizing the behaviors of proteins and other components in complex systems such as a living cell.
