Novel approach to the storage of solar energy

Molecular approach enables light-driven photochemistry in the dark for the first time

21-Sep-2020

Using the energy from the sun as efficiently as nature does and converting it into chemical energy could drastically reduce global CO2 emissions. A research team from the Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz IPHT) and the Friedrich Schiller University Jena has now come one step ...

Water bacteria have a green thumb

Newly discovered species of bacteria produce bioactive natural substances

16-Jun-2020

The sheer endless expanses of the oceans are hostile deserts — at least from the perspective of a bacterium living in water. Tiny as it is, its chances of finding sufficient nutrients in the great mass of water would seem to be vanishingly small. However, as in other deserts, there are ...

Synapses in 3D

Scientists develop new method to map brain structures

12-Nov-2019

Our brain consists of countless nerve cells that transmit signals from one cell to the next. The connections between these cells, the synapses, provide a key to understanding how our memory works. An American research team in collaboration with Rainer Heintzmann from the Leibniz Institute of ...

Motion pictures from living cells

Research team improves superresolution microscopy

24-Sep-2019

In order to observe cells at work, researchers have to bypass a physical law. One of the fastest techniques to overcome the resolution limit of classical light microscopy is high-resolution structured illumination microscopy. It makes visible details that are about a hundred nanometres in size. ...

Fungus produces highly effective surfactant

26-Jun-2019

Mortierella alpina lives in the soil and likes to keep cool. This fungus, which belongs to the zygomycetes, grows best at temperatures of 10 to 15°C and occurs mainly in alpine or arctic habitats. In biotechnology, the fungus has been used for the large-scale production of polyunsaturated fatty ...

Simulating nature’s cosmic laboratory, one helium droplet at a time

27-Mar-2019

Two astronomers from the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy and from the University of Jena have found an elegant new method to measure the energy of simple chemical reactions, under similar conditions as those encountered by atoms and molecules in the early solar system. Their method promises ...

How a fungus can cripple the immune system

Research team clarifies the mechanism of gliotoxin, a mycotoxin from the fungus Aspergillus fumigatus

11-Feb-2019

It is everywhere – and it is extremely dangerous for people with a weakened immune system. The fungus Aspergillus fumigatus occurs virtually everywhere on Earth, as a dark grey, wrinkled cushion on damp walls or in microscopically small spores that blow through the air and cling to wallpaper, ...

When Proteins Shake Hands

Materials scientists create innovative nanomaterial from natural substances

21-Feb-2018

Be it in spider silk, wood, the spaces between body cells, in tendons, or as a natural sealant for small wounds: protein fibres are found virtually everywhere in nature. These small protein fibres, also referred to as protein nanofibres by experts, often have outstanding properties such as a high ...

High resolution without particle accelerator

Physicists are first to achieve optical coherence tomography with XUV radiation at laboratory scale

10-Aug-2017

A visit to the optometrist often involves optical coherence tomography. This imaging process uses infrared radiation to penetrate the layers of the retina and examine it more closely in three dimensions, without having to touch the eye at all. This allows eye specialists to diagnose diseases such ...

Tunable materials clear the way for advanced optics

18-Jan-2016

Now you see it, now you don’t: In books and movies, wizards use magic spells to easily change things from a solid to see-through state. However, in reality, materials with properties called phase transition can pull off a similar trick, changing from clear to cloudy depending on the temperature ...
