Bruker Introduces New High-Resolution X-ray nano-CT system, SkyScan 2211

At Analytica 2014, Bruker today introduced the SkyScan TM 2211, a new high-resolution X-ray nano-CT (computed tomography) system with the widest available range of object sizes and spatial resolutions. [More]
Non-Invasive Optical Procedure for Rapid and Accurate Analysis of Living Cells

Non-Invasive Optical Procedure for Rapid and Accurate Analysis of Living Cells

In order to investigate inflammation, tumors or stem cells, medical practitioners analyze living cells. Non-invasive optical procedures such as Raman spectroscopy accelerate this procedure. Researchers have now developed it to industrial scale. [More]
Colloidal Crystals Trapped Acoustically can be Reconfigured in Real-Time

Colloidal Crystals Trapped Acoustically can be Reconfigured in Real-Time

Using an acoustic metadevice that can influence the acoustic space and can control any of the ways in which waves travel, engineers have demonstrated, for the first time, that it is possible to dynamically alter the geometry of a three-dimensional colloidal crystal in real time. [More]
Nanoparticles in Laser Traps Violate Second Law of Thermodynamics

Nanoparticles in Laser Traps Violate Second Law of Thermodynamics

Objects with sizes in the nanometer range, such as the molecular building blocks of living cells or nanotechnological devices, are continuously exposed to random collisions with surrounding molecules. In such fluctuating environments the fundamental laws of thermodynamics that govern our macroscopic world need to be rewritten. [More]
Terahertz Spectroscopy and Molecular-Dynamics Simulations Render Glycine Motion Visible in Water

Terahertz Spectroscopy and Molecular-Dynamics Simulations Render Glycine Motion Visible in Water

Chemists at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) have, for the first time, completely analysed the fingerprint region of the Terahertz spectrum of a biologically relevant molecule in water, in this case, an amino acid. [More]
