12.03.18 Dancing robots follow the whip

Physicists from Friedrich Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg (FAU) and Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf (HHU) have proved that systems of oppositely rotating mac-roscopic particles separate and form homogenous fractions of particles that rotate either clockwise or counter-clockwise. For their experiment, the researchers used mini robots fabricated by means of 3D printing. The results have now been published in the renowned scientific journal Nature Communications.

22.02.18 Lessons from yeast may help tackle dementia

Together with Japanese colleagues, biophysicists at Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf (HHU) and Jülich Research Centre have examined the folding of specific proteins in yeast fungi. They discovered similar mechanisms to those found in prions, i.e. proteins that are misfolded and can trigger neurodegenerative diseases. From the prions in yeast, the researchers were able to acquire new insights into the misfolding of these harmful proteins. Their results have been published in the scientific journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).

20.02.18 HHU researchers develop new concept for efficient OLEDs

In collaboration with British colleagues, chemists at Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf (HHU) have discovered that simple organic carbonyls are potential emitters for organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs). These molecules are much cheaper and easier to produce than the compounds used today. The research results were presented as a cover story in the scientific journal CHEMPHYSCHEM.
