Ion beams pave way to new kinds of valves for use in spintronics

Researchers have tested a new approach to fabricating spin valves. Using ion beams, the researchers have succeeded in structuring an iron aluminium alloy in such a way as to subdivide the material into individually magnetizable regions at the nanometer scale. The prepared alloy is thus able to function as a spin valve, which is of great interest as a candidate component for use in spintronics.

The thousand-droplets test in artificial cell-scale systems

In the future, an entire chemistry lab could be accommodated in a tiny little droplet. While simple reactions already work in these simplest models of an artificial cell now a group of scientists of the Cluster of Excellence Nanosystems Initiative Munich (NIM) have established and investigated for the first time a complex biochemical system. They discovered a surprising diversity.

Soft nanoporous metal-organic framework materials

Researchers have developed a method to construct a series of soft nanoporous metal-organic framework (MOF) materials by polycatenation of an isoreticular 1D ribbon of rings, and systematically functionalize the pore metrics.
