Engineers use droplet microfluidics to create glucose-sensing microbeads

Standard methods to monitor glucose levels require invasive and time-consuming handling of the cell culture. A team of engineers is developing an alternative approach that takes advantage of new microfluidic techniques. In a continuous and controlled process, the researchers created small droplets of polymer that encapsulated pairs of fluorescing molecules.

In Nullkommanichts durch den Quantentunnel

Wenn Elektronen die Energie zum ueberwinden einer Energiebarriere nicht haben, "tunneln" sie einfach durch diese Barriere hindurch. Forscher koennen den Zeitpunkt des Austritts aus der Barriere zum ersten Mal exakt bestimmen und schlussfolgern daraus: Die Zeit, die das Elektron fuer das Tunneln braucht, ist gleich Null.
