Formation of honeycomb nanostructures finally explained

A few years ago, a promising new type of nanomaterial was observed experimentally, combining the virtues of semiconductors with those of graphene. The material is formed by nanocrystals that spontaneously assemble into a ...

Chemists design faster production process for essential sugars

Cells of all living organisms are covered by a dense layer of highly complex carbohydrates. These carbohydrates, which are also known as glycans, are essential mediators of a wide range of biological and disease processes. ...

Physicists build fractal shape out of electrons

In physics, it is well-known that electrons behave very differently in three dimensions, two dimensions or one dimension. These behaviours give rise to different possibilities for technological applications and electronic ...

Viral infection a matter of simple physics

The manner in which some viruses inject their DNA into bacteria or other types of cells appears to be much simpler than scientists had previously thought. Rather than using molecular engines or complicated mechanisms, viruses ...

Warm wind melts snow in Antarctica in winter as well

Even though the sun does not shine in Antarctica in winter, in some places, snow on the glaciers can melt as a result of warm wind. Utrecht glacier researcher Peter Kuipers Munneke discovered that fact by combining the results ...
