Long-range tunneling of quantum particles

The quantum tunnel effect manifests itself in a multitude of well-known phenomena. Experimental physicists have now directly observed quantum particles transmitting through a whole series of up to five potential barriers under conditions where a single particle could not do the move.

Antibodies from the desert as guides to diseased cells

Researchers have developed nanoparticles that not only bypass the body's defence system, but also find their way to the diseased cells. This procedure uses fragments from a particular type of antibody that only occurs in camels and llamas.

Creating a water layer for a clearer view

Scientists have invented a new permanent surface coating that attracts water instead of repelling it, for a better, clearer view. The patented technology simplifies the coating process, making it more cost-effective for manufacturers.

Looking deeper into the quantum world

Researchers have experimentally demonstrated that interferometers, the most sensitive measuring instruments yet invented, can be improved using nonlinear physics. The result answers a fundamental question in quantum mechanics and could open the way to more sensitive detection of magnetic fields in delicate systems such as the human heart.

Chemical sensor on a chip

They are invisible, but perfectly suited for analysing liquids and gases; infrared laser beams are absorbed differently by different molecules. This effect can for instance be used to measure the oxygen concentration in blood. This technique has now been miniaturized and implemented in the prototype for a new kind of sensor.
