    11/20/2018

    A new method of selectively binding proteins to nanoparticles has been described by a team of German and Chinese researchers headed by Prof. Bart Jan Ravoo, a chemist at the “Center for Soft Nanoscience” at the University of Münster.

  2. New Insight Into Molecular Processes
    11/20/2018

    A research team headed by Prof. Dr. Frank Stienkemeier and Dr. Lukas Bruder of the University of Freiburg’s Institute of Physics has succeeded for the first time in applying 2D-spectroscopy to isolated molecular systems and thus in tracing the interactive processes at a molecular level more precisely.

  4. Meta-Surface Corrects For Chromatic Aberrations Across All Kinds Of Lenses
    11/19/2018

    Today’s optical systems — from smartphone cameras to cutting-edge microscopes — use technology that hasn’t changed much since the mid-1700s.

  5. Imec, Ghent University And SEED Demonstrate Electronics In Hydrogel-Based Soft Lenses
    11/19/2018

    imec, Ghent University, and SEED Co., Ltd. have developed a contact lens with autonomous electronics, opening the door to unique applications such as lenses with sensors and/or drug-delivery systems for the treatment of eye disorders.

  6. Making X-Ray Microscopy 10 Times Faster
    11/19/2018

    Microscopes make the invisible visible. And compared to conventional light microscopes, transmission x-ray microscopes (TXM) can see into samples with much higher resolution, revealing extraordinary details

  7. A Major Step Toward Non-Viral Ocular Gene Therapy Using Laser And Nanotechnology
    11/19/2018

    In January 2009, the life of engineer Michel Meunier, a professor at Polytechnique Montréal, changed dramatically. Like others, he had observed that the extremely short pulse of a femtosecond laser (0.000000000000001 second) could make nanometre-sized holes appear in silicon when it was covered by gold nanoparticles.

  8. NRL Demonstrates New Nonmechanical Laser Steering Technology
    11/19/2018

    Scientists at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory have recently demonstrated a new nonmechanical chip-based beam steering technology that offers an alternative to costly, cumbersome and often unreliable and inefficient mechanical gimbal-style laser scanners.

  9. Error Correction In The Quantum World
    11/19/2018

    "Here, at the bottom of this white container, are the circuits," explains Sebastian Krinner with obvious pride, after guiding the visitor through the large space of high-tech equipment. At the very back of the lab of the Quantum Device Lab, the physicist has set up his experiment - and here he will probably spend several hours working in the next few years

  10. Bending Light Around Tight Corners Without Backscattering Losses
    11/19/2018

    Engineers at Duke University have demonstrated a device that can direct photons of light around sharp corners with virtually no losses due to backscattering, a key property that will be needed if electronics are ever to be replaced by light-based devices.
