Drops in motion
When liquids are moved on a surface, similar frictional forces arise as those acting on solid bodies more
Nuclear magnetic resonance scanner for individual proteins
Thanks to improved resolution, a quantum sensor can now identify individual atoms in biomolecules more
Gecko-inspired multipurpose gripper
An elastic membrane covered with tiny fibres paired with a pressure differential enables a new soft gripper system with a high adhesion performance even on curved surfaces more
A filter for heavy hydrogen
Deuterium and tritium can be separated from each other relatively easily using a functionalized metal-organic framework compound more
Optical fibre with Einstein effect
Twisted photonic crystal fibres guide light by a mechanism similar to the bending of light rays by large celestial masses more
