A New Tool for Cryo-Electron Microscopy

New method that combines cryo-EM with a method otherwise used in materials research

12-Sep-2022

Researchers at Forschungszentrum Jülich and Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf led by Prof. Dr. Carsten Sachse are using cryo-electron microscopy, or cryo-EM for short, to make biomolecules visible at the atomic level. In a paper now published in the journal Nature Methods, they present a new ...

Synapses as a model: solid-state memory in neuromorphic circuits

Scientists at Forschungszentrum Jülich publish guide for memristor hardware design

17-Aug-2022

They are many times faster than flash memory and require significantly less energy: memristive memory cells could revolutionize the energy efficiency of neuromorphic computers. In these computers, which are modeled on the way the human brain works, memristive cells function like artificial ...

Alzheimer’s Research: New Insights into the Formation of Toxic Protein Clumps

In slightly acidic conditions Aβ oligomers form around 8,000 times quicker than for a neutral pH

12-Aug-2021

Small aggregates of proteins known as Aβ oligomers are suspected as the main cause for the development of Alzheimer’s disease. However, it is not yet clear where and under what conditions these toxic aggregates form. Researchers from Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf and Forschungszentrum ...

Increasing the Activity of Catalysts

A key to producing green hydrogen more efficiently

13-Jan-2021

A layer as thin as a single atom makes a huge difference: On the surface of an electrode, it doubles the amount of water split in an electrolysis system without increasing the energy requirements. Thus, the ultrathin layer also doubles the amount of hydrogen produced without increasing costs. ...

Talent Scout in the Cell Factory

New biosensor facilitates the search for efficient microorganisms

07-Oct-2020

They’re small, but mighty: microorganisms. The industry known as “white biotechnology” takes advantage of their potential in a variety of ways, for example to produce chemicals, medicines, or dietary supplements. The little powerhouses’ work can be found in a whole series of products, the number ...

Autonomous Robot Plays with NanoLEGO

Scientists are developing an autonomous artificial intelligence system that can selectively grip and move individual molecules

07-Sep-2020

Molecules are the building blocks of everyday life. Many materials are composed of them, a little like a LEGO model consists of a multitude of different bricks. But while individual LEGO bricks can be simply shifted or removed, this is not so easy in the nanoworld. Atoms and molecules behave in a ...

New Indication of a Link Between Alzheimer’s and Diabetes

High-resolution 3D model shows strong similarity in the structure of the fibrils

17-Jun-2020

Pathological protein clumps are characteristic of a series of diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, and type 2 diabetes. Scientists at Forschungszentrum Jülich, Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf, and Maastricht University have now used cryo-electron microscopy to obtain a ...

Sensing magnetism in atomic resolution with just a scanning tunneling microscope

Researchers use single molecule on microscope tip as a sensor to detect magnetic moments with unprecedented spatial resolution

07-Nov-2019

Scientists from the University of Strasbourg, France, in close collaboration with colleagues from the research centers in San Sebastián, Spain, and Jülich, Germany, have achieved a breakthrough in detecting the magnetic moments of nanoscale structures. They succeeded in making the magnetic ...

Assemblies of proteins relevant not only for Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease

23-Aug-2019

Amyloid fibrils play a crucial role in neurodegenerative illnesses. Scientists from Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf (HHU) and Forschungszentrum Jülich have now been able to use cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) to decode the spatial structure of the fibrils that are formed from PI3K SH3 ...

New Quantum Dot Microscope Shows Electric Potentials of Individual Atoms

17-Jun-2019

A team of researchers from Jülich in cooperation with the University of Magdeburg has developed a new method to measure the electric potentials of a sample at atomic accuracy. Using conventional methods, it was virtually impossible until now to quantitatively record the electric potentials that ...
