Source code of nano-archimedes now online

nano-archimedes is a Technology Computer Aided Design tool for the simulation of various technology relevant situtations involving the dynamics of electrons such as the transport in nanometer scale semiconductor devices (nanodevices) and the dynamics of N-body problems in quantum chemistry.

Researchers take first pictures of baby nanotubes

In a step toward understanding the factors that influence how nanotubes form, researchers have succeeded in filming them when they are only a few atoms old. These nanotube 'baby pictures' give crucial insight into how they germinate and grow, potentially opening the way for scientists to create them en masse with just the properties that they want.

How bacteria use nanodrills to kill our cells

A team of scientists has revealed how certain harmful bacteria drill into our cells to kill them. Their study shows how bacterial 'nanodrills' assemble themselves on the outer surfaces of our cells, and includes the first movie of how they then punch holes in the cells' outer membranes.

Amyloid-Oligomere: Biologische Nanopartikel im Dienst der Medizin

Bisher haben Amyloid-Proteinkomplexe vor allem als mutmaßliche Alzheimer-Auslöser eher unliebsame Bekanntheit erlangt. Biochemiker und Molekularbiologen aus Ulm und Jena haben nun entdeckt, dass sich diese Komplexe aufgrund ihrer Molekülstruktur aber auch nützlich machen können.

Possible diamond-graphene read head for quantum computers

Nitrogen-vacancy centers in diamonds could be used to construct vital components for quantum computers. But hitherto it has been impossible to read optically written information from such systems electronically. Using a graphene layer, researchers have now implemented just such a read unit.
