Molecular hard drives could be up to 100 times smaller

Research team at Kiel University saves information on a single molecule Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage

Environmentally-friendly anti-fouling coatings get much better

Kiel University and a close spin-off jointly develop coating that prevents the accumulation of organisms It is one of the shipping industry’s major problems: marine organisms like barnacles, algae or muscles quickly cover the hulls of ships and damage their paintwork. The phenomenon of so-called “biofouling” increases the ship’s weight and its flow resistance, causing

New composite carbon nanotube material makes a stable 3D network

CAU research team develops new composite material made of carbon nanotubes Extremely lightweight, electrically highly conductive, and more stable than steel: due to their unique properties, carbon nanotubes would be ideal for numerous applications, from ultra-lightweight batteries to high-performance plastics, right through to medical implants. However, to date it has been difficult for science and

Flexible inorganic double helix material can be adapted to a wide range of applications

A flexible semiconductor for electronics, solar technology and photo catalysis It is the double helix, with its stable and flexible structure of genetic information, that made life on Earth possible in the first place. Now a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has discovered a double helix structure in an inorganic material. The

Breakthrough in materials science: can bond metals with nearly all surfaces

How metals can be used depends particularly on the characteristics of their surfaces. A research team at Kiel University has discovered how they can change the surface properties without affecting the mechanical stability of the metals or changing the metal characteristics themselves. This fundamentally new method is based on using an electro-chemical etching process, in

Scientists at Kiel University revolutionize the nanostructure production process

UV-sensors from the oven Placed in fire detectors and water treatment units UV-sensors can save lives; also in many areas of industry and environment the demand for these devices is rising steadily. Scientists of Kiel University have been able to ”bake” nanostructures within seconds, in order to fabricate very fast UV-sensors. This new technique totally

Ethereal aerographite is lightest stuff ever made

It looks like a wisp of smoke or even the work of a very confused spider, but this is actually a close up of the lightest material that has ever been created. Previous record holders include aerogel, which was used by NASA to collect dust from a comet and is 99.9 per cent air with

A new temperature-responsive smart material is 1,800 times stiffer than the original hydrogel when heated

A new material that stiffens 1,800-fold when exposed to heat could protect motorcyclists and racecar drivers during accidents. Hokkaido University researchers have developed a hydrogel that does the opposite of what polymer-based materials, like plastic bottles, normally do: their material hardens when heated and softens when cooled. Their findings, published in the journal Advanced Materials, could

Developing satellites that can fix other satellites

For his latest study, professor Ou Ma engineered robots to work independently but collaboratively When satellites break, which is surprisingly often, there isn’t much you can do about them. They become expensive and dangerous flotsam, orbiting Earth for years or generations until gravity eventually draws them to a fiery death in the atmosphere. University of
