'Organic', the new electronics revolution

'Organic and large-area electronics' (OLAE) is focused on materials and devices built from organic carbon-based molecules that are able to conduct electricity. Because these are lighter, more flexible and less expensive than inorganic conductors, such as copper or silicon, they are a viable alternative for many electronics applications.

Baby crystal discovery big step for nanoscience

How small can a chemical compound be and still retain the properties of that same compound in bulk? With computer models and laboratory experiments, researchers have determined the smallest crystal configuration, or as they call it, a "baby crystal", of lead sulfide.

Die Zelle als Operationsfeld

Wissenschaftler der Friedrich-Alexander-Universitaet Erlangen-Nuernberg und des Uniklinikums Erlangen arbeiten daran, die Prinzipien der klassischen Chirurgie auf Behandlungen innerhalb der Zellmembran zu uebertragen. Vom gewohnten Handwerkszeug der Chirurgen bleiben jedoch nur Begriffe; Nanopartikel und Laser ersetzen das Operationsbesteck.
