In Nullkommanichts durch den Quantentunnel

Wenn Elektronen die Energie zum ueberwinden einer Energiebarriere nicht haben, "tunneln" sie einfach durch diese Barriere hindurch. Forscher koennen den Zeitpunkt des Austritts aus der Barriere zum ersten Mal exakt bestimmen und schlussfolgern daraus: Die Zeit, die das Elektron fuer das Tunneln braucht, ist gleich Null.

Shaping up nanoparticles for DNA delivery to cancer cells

To treat cancer, scientists and clinicians have to kill cancer cells while minimally harming the healthy tissues surrounding them. However, because cancer cells are derived from healthy cells, targeting only the cancer cells is exceedingly difficult.

Achieving the world's highest efficiency in hydrogen production by water electrolysis using an oxide photoelectrode

Researchers at AIST have developed a very high-performance multilayered photoelectrode for hydrogen production by water electrolysis using an oxide semiconductor photoelectrode. In the reaction to convert solar energy into hydrogen energy, a solar energy conversion efficiency of 1.35 % has been achieved in a carbonate electrolyte by stacking two photoelectrodes.
