  • How salt in the rainforest becomes clouds
    In the ecosystem of the rainforest, fungi and plants are important contributors to the development of mist and clouds. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry have now found out that ...
  • Project MICREAgents: self-assembling smart microscopic reagents to pioneer pourable electronics
    First place in an EU competitive call on "Unconventional Computing" was awarded to a collaborative proposal coordinated by Prof. John McCaskill from the RUB Faculty of Chemistry and Biochemistry. T...
  • Internet Addiction - Causes at the Molecular Level
    Everybody is talking about Internet addiction - many people spend hours online and immediately start feeling bad if they are unable to do so. Medically, this phenomenon has not yet been as clearly ...
  • Matthias Mann to receive the Körber Prize 2012
    The physicist and bioinformatician Matthias Mann has developed a high-precision mass-spectrometry technique with which all the proteins in a cell can be analysed at once. Previously, researchers co...
  • Force Meter for Molecular Bonds
    How strongly superglue, magnetic clamps and clamp connections adhere to each other can be determined fairly precisely by mechanical load tests. The case is quite different on the microscopic level....
  • Surface emitters developed at the TU Darmstadt set a new world record for spectral bandwidth
    Working in collaboration with their partners under the EU's "Subtune" project, scientists at the TU Darmstadt have developed semiconductor lasers that emit light over a wavelength range of 100 nm, ...
  • Merck Acquires Cell Culture Media Specialist Biochrom AG
    Merck announced that it has entered into definitive agreements to acquire Biochrom AG located in Berlin, Germany. The company, with approximately 60 employees and sales of approximately € 13 millio...
  • Single photons produced electrically
    Physicists have succeeded in using semiconductor nanostructures to produce single photons electrically and transfer them via a quantum channel. The application of these single photon sources is see...
  • When Aerosols Age
    Natural and anthropogenic substances that enter the atmosphere react with each other and form minute particles known as aerosols. The reaction with hydroxyl radicals (OH radicals) plays an importan...
  • "BlueCompetition 2012" starts soon
    The German manufacturer of gas analyzers for bioprocesses is launching this large-scaled event this year for the second time. Scientific workgroups from research institutions all over the world can...

    Merck announced today that the 2012 Heinrich Emanuel Merck Award for Analytical Science will be given to Professor Wheeler from the University of Toronto for his development of a digital microfluid...
  • Cancer biomarkers re-evaluated
    Researchers from ETH Zurich have developed a procedure to test the clinical benefits of cancer biomarkers. The method could radically shorten the path from the lab to their application.Protein biom...
  • Ultra-short X-ray laser pulses precisely surveyed for the first time
    X-ray lasers belong to a modern generation of light sources from which scientists in widely different disciplines expect to obtain new knowledge about the structure and function of materials at the...
  • Salvaging treasures from waste
    Resources are becoming more scarce. Metal prices are rising steadily. Reason enough to find new sources of raw materials. A team of scientists and engineers from industry and various research insti...
