Improving the efficiency of organic light emitting diodes with aromatic carbonyls
Organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) are presently conquering the market for displays of smartphones and TVs. They also have a great potential in lighting applications. Current devices for the blue part of the visible spectrum lag behind their green and red counterparts in terms of efficiency ...
Automated exposure of human lung cells at the air-liquid interface
The current debates on driving bans in European cities show not only how important air quality is to the public but also reveal the lack of available methods to directly assess the adverse effects of air pollutants on human health.
Electrochemical dark-field microscopy can visualize and help investigate the reactions of individual nanoparticles
A combination of dark-field microscopy and electrochemistry can make individual nanoparticles in a liquid medium visible. The technique is suited to determine the activity of catalysts during their use.
The new definition of the SI base unit of mass and its significance to the weighing world
For about 200 years, any mass given in kilograms, grams and micrograms referred to a defined artifact accessible in only a single location on earth. A small metal cylinder had represented one kilogram since the metric system was introduced in France. Its successor became world famous as the ...
A fundamental change in the International System of Units
The 20th of May 2019 is a special day. From that day on, the old definitions of what a kilogram, a mole, an ampere and a kelvin represent, are history. The future of the International System of Units will see natural constants play the star roles.
Determining the basis for the redefinition of the units kilogram and mole
Since the 20th of May 2019, the mass unit kilogram is no longer defined by the international kilogram prototype but by the numerical value of the Planck constant, the most important fundamental constant in quantum physics. For this definition, the Planck constant needed to be measured with the ...
Microorganisms use impressive strategies for dealing with uncertainty
Bacteria are true survivors. In the course of evolution, they have developed numerous strategies to adapt to rapidly changing, uncertain environmental conditions. Their metabolism is much more sophisticated than that of human beings. Within minutes they can regulate their gene expression and, if ...
A novel microspectroscopic method allows sugar mapping across the plant tissue
Quantitative mapping of metabolite distribution has widespread applications in medicine and biology, but has remained a key analytical challenge. A novel method for sugar imag-ing in plants based on the principles of infrared spectroscopy, which was developed at the IPK-Gatersleben, allows the ...
An emerging technology to comprehensively describe entire lipid profiles
Progress in research is – to a large extent – driven by technological and analytical advance-ments. This is particularly true for the field of lipid research in the biomedical field, which was hampered for decades by the limited availability of analytical tools to address the enormous complexity ...
Multi-omics approach opens up new insights into the microbiome and mammalian lipid synthesis
Nature provides an enormous diversity of lipid molecules that originate from various pathways. Fatty acids are key modules for various lipids, including cell membrane lipids such as phospholipids or triacylglycerols, which are the major components of lipid droplets. Excess lipids or defects in ...
q&more – the networking platform for quality excellence in lab and process
