Benchmarks to better catch the sun

Simulations unveil efficiency targets and design rules to maximize the conversion of light into electricity using organic solar cells.

Turning up the heat on pathogenic bacteria

Pathogenic bacteria come alive at the metabolic level when they enter the warmth of the human gut, firing up genes that encode toxins and other compounds harmful to our bodies. A KAUST-led study shows how a critical bacterial ...

Saturn's moon Mimas, a snowplow in the planet's rings

The Solar System's second largest planet both in mass and size, Saturn is best known for its rings. These are divided by a wide band, the Cassini Division, whose formation was poorly understood until very recently. Now, researchers ...

How acids behave in ultracold interstellar space

A research group from Ruhr-Universität Bochum has investigated how acids interact with water molecules at extremely low temperatures. Using spectroscopic analyses and computer simulations, they investigated the question ...
