Can we detect quantum behaviour in viruses?

The weird world of quantum mechanics describes the strange, often contradictory, behaviour of small inanimate objects such as atoms. Researchers have now started looking for ways to detect quantum properties in more complex and larger entities, possibly even living organisms.

Molekulare Lichtschalter

Molekuele, die erst bei Bestrahlung mit Licht ihre biologische Funktion entfalten, koennten an genau definierter Stelle im Organismus 'angeschaltet' werden. Wissenschaftlern vom Leibniz-Institut fuer Molekulare Pharmakologie (FMP) und von der Technischen Universitaet Berlin ist es gelungen, solche lichtsensiblen molekularen Strukturen zu entwickeln.

Novel OLED concept uses graphene as conductor

Researchers at Stanford University have successfully developed brand new concept of organic lighting-emitting diodes (OLEDs) with a few nanometer of graphene as transparent conductor. This paved the way for inexpensive mass production of OLEDs on large-area low-cost flexible plastic substrate, which could be rolled up like wallpaper and virtually applied to anywhere you want.
