'Frontiers of Knowledge Award' for pioneers of electron microscopy

The Spanish foundation BBVA honors Haider, together with Prof. Harald Rose, senior professor at Ulm University, and Prof. Knut Urban, Forschungszentrum Jülich, for the development of a new generation of so-called aberration-corrected electron microscopes that reach resolutions in the atomic range.

Molecular collisions now imaged better than ever

Molecular physicists from Radboud University Nijmegen have produced images of the changes in direction of colliding nitrogen monoxide molecules (NO) with unprecedented sharpness. By combining a Stark decelerator with advanced imaging techniques, they were able to obtain very high resolution images of the collision processes.

Fine-tuning a rainbow of colors at the nanoscale

By varying the geometry of the nanoholes in plasmonic color filters - their diameter, shape, periodicity and pattern - it is possible to control the colors that are transmitted and to create transmit a broad spectrum of colors for imaging applications.

Helical electron and nuclear spin order in quantum wires

Physicists at the University of Basel have observed a spontaneous magnetic order of electron and nuclear spins in a quantum wire at temperatures of 0.1 kelvin. In the past, this was possible only at much lower temperatures, typically in the microkelvin range.
