Wasserstoff aus dem Reagenzglas

Die umweltfreundliche Herstellung ausreichender Mengen Wasserstoffs beschaeftigt die Forschung seit langem. Als mikroskopisch kleine Fabrik steht dabei die Gruenalge Chlamydomonas reinhardtii im Mittelpunkt, die unter Stress Wasserstoff bilden kann. Bochumer Biologen ist es jetzt gelungen, die dafuer verantwortlichen Bestandteile der Alge zu isolieren und die Produktion ins Reagenzglas zu verlegen.

Physicists achieve quantum entanglement in solid-state circuits

For the first time, physicists have convincingly demonstrated that physically separated particles in solid-state devices can be quantum-mechanically entangled. The achievement is analogous to the quantum entanglement of light, except that it involves particles in circuitry instead of photons in optical systems.

Nanotechnology boosts the lifespan of medical implants

To overcome the problems associated with metallic implants, many research organizations and commercial companies have tried to develop orthopedic implants that have a bioactive surface to promote cellular adhesion and bony in-growth. Efforts have been made to create a stable fit that more closely resembles the original tissue, thus eliminating the need for additional surgery to repair the damage or gaps.
