Microdrones with light-driven nanomotors

A hand-held laser pointer produces no noticeable recoil forces when it is "fired"—even though it emits a directed stream of light particles. The reason for this is its very large mass compared to the very small recoil impulses ...

Columns designed from nanographenes

Graphene is a carbon material that forms extremely thin layers. Because of its unusual properties, it is interesting for many technical applications. This also applies to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), which can ...

Possible weakness found in neuroblastoma cells

The cells of a certain tumor type, neuroblastoma, divide very rapidly. This rapid division can have potentially fatal consequences for the cells. A new study shows how neuroblastoma cells deal with this dilemma.
