Scientists Decode Molecular and 3D Structure of Spiegelmers

Scientists Decode Molecular and 3D Structure of Spiegelmers

Using DESY's ultra bright X-ray source PETRA III, scientists have decoded the molecular and three-dimensional structure of two promising drug candidates from the new group of Spiegelmers for the first time. The results provide a deeper understanding of the mode of action of these substances that have already entered clinical trials. The researchers from the Universities of Hamburg and Aarhus (Denmark) together with colleagues from the biotech company NOXXON in Berlin present their work in the journal Nature Communications.

Researchers Discover Efficient Terahertz Emission from 2D Arrays of Gold Split-Ring Resonator Metamaterials

Researchers Discover Efficient Terahertz Emission from 2D Arrays of Gold Split-Ring Resonator Metamaterials

The Science
Metamaterials allow design and use of light-matter interactions at a fundamental level. An efficient terahertz emission from two-dimensional arrays of gold split-ring resonator metamaterials was discovered as a result of excitation by a near-infrared pulsed laser. [More]
Novel Device Measures Terahertz Waves with Extreme Precision

Novel Device Measures Terahertz Waves with Extreme Precision

Light can come in many frequencies, only a small fraction of which can be seen by humans. Between the invisible low-frequency radio waves used by cell phones and the high frequencies associated with infrared light lies a fairly wide swath of the electromagnetic spectrum occupied by what are called terahertz, or sometimes submillimeter, waves. Exploitation of these waves could lead to many new applications in fields ranging from medical imaging to astronomy, but terahertz waves have proven tricky to produce and study in the laboratory.

Irregularity of Nanopillars Contributes to Low Reflection of Butterfly Wings

Irregularity of Nanopillars Contributes to Low Reflection of Butterfly Wings

The effect is known from the smart phone: Sun is reflected by the display and hardly anything can be seen. In contrast to this, the glasswing butterfly hardly reflects any light in spite of its transparent wings. As a result, it is difficult for predatory birds to track the butterfly during the flight. Researchers of KIT under the direction of Hendrik Hölscher found that irregular nanostructures on the surface of the butterfly wing cause the low reflection. In theoretical experiments, they succeeded in reproducing the effect that opens up fascinating application options, e.g. for displays of mobile phones or laptops. [More]
