Novel microscope makes slow-motion movies of tiny nanostructures

Physicists have developed a novel microscope that allows them to record slow-motion movies of tiny nanostructures with groundbreaking time resolution - faster even than a single oscillation cycle of light. With their new microscope they have directly imaged the super-fast motion of electrons.

Fullerene spheres - nanobearings on the test bench (w/video)

Fullerenes seemed to many an excellent candidate for nano-bearings. Unfortunately, the results so far have been conflicting, calling for further studies. Through a series of computer simulations, scientists uncovered the reason for the experimental discrepancies and shed light on the true potential of this material.

Simultaneous imaging of ferromagnetic and ferroelectric domains

Researchers have discovered a new way to simultaneously image both the ferromagnetic and the ferroelectric domain structures of multilayer devices in which a ferromagnetic film is grown on a ferroelectric substrate. These structures have attracted significant recent interest due to their ability to efficiently use voltage to change the magnetization in low-energy magnetic devices.

Creating nanostructures using simple stamps

Nanostructures of virtually any possible shape can now be made using a combination of techniques. Especially the unique properties of so-called perovskites can be exploited further: their crystal structure is not influenced by the process.
