Nanosale Reduction of Thickness Changes Lanthanum Nickelate from a Metal to an Insulator

Nanosale Reduction of Thickness Changes Lanthanum Nickelate from a Metal to an Insulator

Ever-shrinking electronic devices could get down to atomic dimensions with the help of transition metal oxides, a class of materials that seems to have it all: superconductivity, magnetoresistance and other exotic properties. These possibilities have scientists excited to understand everything about these materials, and to find new ways to control their properties at the most fundamental levels. [More]
Electron Microscopy Helps Detect Filament Assembly of Parasite Actin II Proteins

Electron Microscopy Helps Detect Filament Assembly of Parasite Actin II Proteins

The tropical disease malaria is caused by the Plasmodium parasite. For its survival and propagation, Plasmodium requires a protein called actin. Scientists of the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research (HZI) in Germany used high-resolution structural biology methods to investigate the different versions of this protein in the parasite in high detail.

Novel Breakthrough Enables Nanofabrication of Porous Graphene Membranes

Novel Breakthrough Enables Nanofabrication of Porous Graphene Membranes

Researchers have produced a stable porous membrane that is thinner than a nanometre. This is a 100,000 times thinner than the diameter of a human hair. The membrane consists of two layers of the much exalted "super material" graphene, a two-dimensional film made of carbon atoms, on which the team of researchers, led by Professor Hyung Gyu Park at the Department of Mechanical and Process Engineering at ETH Zurich, etched tiny pores of a precisely defined size.
