How lipids are flipped

14-Aug-2015

A team of researchers at ETH Zurich and the University of Bern has succeeded in determining the structure of a lipid flippase at high resolution, which has provided insight into how this membrane protein transports lipids by flipping. Biological membranes have a fundamental role, countless vital ...

New technique speeds nanoMRI imaging

Multiplexing technique for nanoscale magnetic resonance imaging cuts normal scan time from two weeks to two days

01-Jun-2015

NanoMRI is a scanning technique that produces nondestructive, high-resolution 3-D images of nanoscale objects, and it promises to become a powerful tool for researchers and companies exploring the shape and function of biological materials such as viruses and cells in much the same way as ...

Shaking the topological cocktail of success

17-Nov-2014

Take ultracold potassium atoms, place a honeycomb lattice of laser beams on top of them and shake everything in a circular motion: this recipe enabled ETH researchers to implement an idea for a new class of materials first proposed in 1988 in their laboratory. Graphene is the miracle material of ...

When a doughnut becomes an apple

24-Sep-2014

In experiments using the wonder material graphene, ETH researchers have been able to demonstrate a phenomenon predicted by a Russian physicist more than 50 years ago. They analysed a layer structure that experts believe may hold unimagined promise. Anastasia Varlet works as a doctoral candidate ...

Nanoscale assembly line

28-Aug-2014

ETH researchers have realised a long-held dream: based on an industrial assembly line, they have developed a minuscule production line for the assembly of biological molecules. Cars, planes and many electronic products are now built with the help of sophisticated assembly lines. Mobile assembly ...

Thinnest feasible membrane produced

29-Apr-2014

A new nano-membrane made out of the “super material” graphene is extremely light and breathable. Not only can this open the door to a new generation of functional waterproof clothing, but also to ultra-rapid filtration. The membrane produced by the researchers at ETH Zurich is as thin as is ...

Protecting olive oil from counterfeiters

28-Apr-2014

Who guarantees that expensive olive oil isn't counterfeit or adulterated? An invisible label, developed by ETH researchers, could perform this task. The tag consists of tiny magnetic DNA particles encapsulated in a silica casing and mixed with the oil. Just a few grams of the new substance are ...
