For the first time, FAU engineers have succeeded in producing complex crystal lattices, so-called clathrates, from nanoparticles using DNA strands. Their findings have recently been published in the acclaimed journal ‘Science’.
In a test reactor, FAU material researchers succeeded in producing the world’s largest diamond foil with a diameter of 28 centimetres.
Physicists at FAU have entered new territory with regard to the pulsing of electron beams. In the near future, their method could be used to develop electron microscopes suitable for ultra-short time scales such as needed for observing the motion of atoms.
