Controlled coupling of light and matter


Researchers from Würzburg and London have built the foundations for a new field of nano-optics: they have succeeded in controlling the coupling of light and matter at room temperature. Publishing in a journal like Science Advances usually heralds a particularly exciting innovation. Now, ...

Newly designed molecule binds nitrogen


Chemists from the University of Würzburg have developed a boron-based molecule capable of binding nitrogen without assistance from a transition metal. This might be the first step towards the energy-saving production of fertilisers. Whether wheat, millet or maize: They all need nitrogen to grow. ...

Individual Receptors Caught at Work

Technological developments allow new insights


Using a revolutionary live-cell microscopy technique, an international team of scientist has observed for the first time individual receptors for hormones and widely used drugs at work in intact cells. G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) are among the "hottest” targets for the therapy of diseases ...

Chewing gum rapid test for inflammation

Chewing gum to screen for oral inflammation


Dental implants occasionally entail complications: Six to fifteen percent of patients develop an inflammatory response in the years after receiving a dental implant. This is caused by bacteria destroying the soft tissue and the bone around the implant in the worst case. In future, patients will ...

Cancer detection with sugar molecules


Scientists from the University of Würzburg have synthesized a complex sugar molecule which specifically binds to the tumor protein Galectin-1. This could help to recognize tumors at an early stage and to combat them in a targeted manner. Galectins are a family of proteins that have become a ...

Novel light sources made of 2D materials


Physicists from the University of Würzburg have designed a light source that emits photon pairs. Two-photon sources are particularly well suited for tap-proof data encryption. The experiment's key ingredients: a semiconductor crystal and some sticky tape. So-called monolayers are at the heart of ...

Trojan horses for hospital bugs


Staphylococcus aureus is a bacterium that is frequently found on the human skin and in the nose where it usually behaves inconspicuously. However, once inside the body, it can have life-threatening consequences such as abscesses, sepsis, pneumonia or myocarditis. How the pathogen manages to ...

Mimicking the ingenuity of nature


A clean, climate-friendly energy source that is virtually inexhaustible: This is the promise artificial photosynthesis holds. Chemists from the University of Würzburg have now got one step closer to reaching this goal. Nature shows how to do it: Photosynthesis is a process used by plants to ...

New lasers for police and petrochemistry


Laser to replace breathalyser – this principle could be the future of traffic controls: Physicists of the University of Würzburg have developed a laser that can be used to measure alcohol in the driver's cab. But the new laser can do much more. Is this the future of traffic controls? A special ...

Aphids as biosensors


Do plants have some kind of nervous system? This is difficult to establish as there are no suitable measurement methods around. Plant researchers from Würzburg used aphids for this purpose – and discovered that plants respond differently to different kinds of damage. When a plant is mechanically ...
