  • 3D-Printing of Glass Now Possible
    Three-dimensional printing allows extremely small and complex structures to be made even in small series. A method developed at the KIT for the first time allows also glass to be used for this tech...
  • Chip-based nanoscopy: Microscopy in HD quality
    Physicists at Bielefeld University and tThe Arctic University of Norway in Tromsø have developed a photonic chip that makes it possible to carry out superresolution light microscopy, also called 'n...
  • Can the behavior of nanoparticles be predicted?
    The way that nanoparticles behave in the environment is extremely complex. There is currently a lack of systematic experimental data to help understand them comprehensively, as ETH environmental sc...
  • Discovering of the first three-dimensional quantum liquid crystal
    Physicists at the Institute for Quantum Information and Matter at Caltech have discovered the first three-dimensional quantum liquid crystal-a new state of matter that may have applications in ultr...
  • Nuclease-resistant hybrid nanoflowers
    An eco-friendly method to synthesize DNA-copper nanoflowers with high load efficiencies, low cytotoxicity, and strong resistance against nucleases has been developed by Professor Hyun Gyu Park in t...
  • Atomic structure reveals how cells translate environmental signals
    In all living cells, chemical signals are harnessed for intracellular communication. The inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP3) is one such signal that binds to the IP3 receptor (IP3R) to release calci...
  • Algal residue - an alternative carbon resource for pharmaceuticals and polyesters
    Microalgae have received much attention in biomass production due to many strains having a high biomass productivity per unit time and per unit area. Algae produce high levels of oil as well as car...
  • Monitor and remove pharmaceuticals from water
    The research involves the detection and removal of pharmaceuticals in or from water, as contamination from pharmaceuticals can enter the aquatic environment as a result of their use for the treatme...
  • Structure of key system for TB infection revealed
    The Wilmanns group at EMBL together with scientists from across Europe reveal the overall architecture of an assembly of proteins known as Type VII secretion systems found in a group of bacteria wh...
  • Measuring without gravity
    On Friday, April 7, 2017, the research rocket MAXUS-9 successfully launched from the Esrange rocket launch site near Kiruna in northern Sweden. After 12 minutes of weightlessness, the scientific pa...
  • Novel catalyst to convert carbon dioxide invented
    Researchers from the University of Amsterdam (UvA) have invented a new catalyst that can efficiently convert carbon dioxide to carbon monoxide. This soon-to-be patented invention enables the sustai...
  • Study examines foods for radioactive substances
    In co-operation with the Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR), the Federal Office for Radiation Protection (BfS) will examine prepared food for radiation caused by radioactive elements such ...
  • New treatment for antibiotic resistant bacteria and infectious disease
    Researchers from Newcastle University and the University of Birmingham have found a treatment for patients with bronchiectasis who suffer the chronic bacterial infection, pseudomonas aeruginosa. Th...
  • Nanopowders for the synthesis of new aluminum alloys
    The research team of Siberian Federal University together with the scientists of the Krasnoyarsk Scientific Center of the SB RAS has developed a method for the synthesis of aluminum alloys, the use...
  • EFSA Annual Activity Report 2016 published
    EFSA completed the strategic review of its work and published the EFSA Strategy 2020: "Trusted science for safe food" as its new guiding document, introducing the mission statement "Trusted science...
  • Understanding nanomaterial toxicity by leveraging mechanistic information on chemicals
    JRC scientists carried out a study illustrating how the mechanisms of nanomaterial toxicity can be better understood by exploiting the broader body of mechanistic information on chemicals in genera...
  • Nanomaterials or Non-Nanomaterials
    The JRC contributed to the development of a low cost and highly efficient screening strategy to implement the European Commission's Recommendation for a definition of nanomaterials. A variety of...
  • Reliable molecular toggle switch developed
    Nanotechnology constantly allows for new records in miniaturization. Reduction of the dimension of electronic components, however, has physical limits that will be reached soon. Novel materials and...
  • Tracking perfluorinated chemicals in the body
    They are the chemicals that made consumers think twice about using nonstick cookware. New research shows scientists have developed a method to track perfluorinated alkyl substances (PFAS) in the bo...
  • Weyl semimetals split water
    Catalysis significantly affects our way of life. Catalysis plays an important role in many biological and technological processes. For example, the world's food supply is based on a famous catalyt...
