Imaging a molecular switch

Scanning probe microscopes like the scanning tunneling microscope and the atomic force microscope give researchers valuable information about individual molecules. One of the most interesting areas of research is molecular ...

How metal atoms can arrange themselves on an insulator

In order to produce tiny electronic memories or sensors in the future, it is essential to be able to arrange individual metal atoms on an insulating layer. Scientists at Bielefeld University's Faculty of Chemistry have now ...

Stable catalysts for new energy

On the way to a CO2-neutral economy, we need to perfect a whole range of technologies—including the electrochemical extraction of hydrogen from water, fuel cells, or carbon capture. All these technologies have one thing ...

Surfaces help quantum switches

The quantum dynamics of hydrogen are central to many problems in nature, being strongly influenced by the environment in which a reaction takes place. In their contribution to PRL, members of the Lise Meitner Group at the ...
