Wirkstoffe auf freien Fuss setzen mit Nanoshuttles

In der Zukunft koennten wenige Millionstel Millimeter grosse Nanofaehren Wirkstoffe oder auch Gene in Zellen schleusen. Derartige Therapien haetten den Vorteil, dass der Wirkstoff keine Nebenwirkungen auf dem Weg durch den Organismus ausloesen kann. Der therapeutische Effekt entfaltet sich erst am Ziel, sodass etwa auch toxische Krebsmedikamente in der Chemotherapie relativ niedrig dosiert werden koennen.

Researchers hear puzzling new physics from graphene quartet's quantum harmonies

Using a one-of-a-kind instrument designed and built at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), an international team of researchers have 'unveiled' a quartet of graphene's electron states and discovered that electrons in graphene can split up into an unexpected and tantalizing set of energy levels when exposed to extremely low temperatures and extremely high magnetic fields.
