Tightly wound nanomolecules respond to external forces faster than classical springs. They can be readily extended and rapidly return to their original form.
Smart glass can change its color through electricity. A new material developed by an e-conversion team has now set a speed record for such a color change.
Organic semiconductors such as those in OLEDs would be more efficient if parts of the energy did not disappear secretly into the material. A team from the e-conversion cluster has successfully followed the trail – equipped with an elegant method that counts the excited electrons and discloses how they vanish.
LMU researchers show that the light emitted by a single molecule can be detected with a low-cost optical setup. Their prototype could facilitate medical diagnostics.
Institute for Chemical Epigenetics Munich ICEM is arousing interest in Prime Time News even before its completion.
How do you repair the world's smallest machines? The best way is to let them do it on their own. Many nano-machines are made of artificial DNA building blocks, and a group from the e-conversion cluster has now shown that this material can replace its own defective parts by itself.
LMU researchers simplify the MINFLUX microscope and have succeeded in differentiating molecules that are extremely close together and tracking their dynamics.
