NANOSCALE NONCOLLINEAR SPIN TEXTURES IN THIN FILMS OF A D2D HEUSLER COMPOUNDTue Aug 09 2022

Nanoscale Noncollinear Spin Textures in Thin Films of a D2d Heusler Compound
Magnetic nano-objects, namely antiskyrmions and Bloch skyrmions, have been found to coexist in single-crystalline lamellae formed from bulk crystals of inverse tetragonal Heusler compounds with D2d symmetry. * Skyrmions can be observed in real-space by various direct imaging techniques. * In the article “Nanoscale Noncollinear Spin Textures in Thin Films of a D2d Heusler Compound” […]

Elastic shell theory for plant cell wall stiffness reveals contributions of cell wall elasticity and turgor pressure in AFM measurementThu Aug 04 2022

The stiffness of a plant cell in response to an applied force is determined not only by the elasticity of the cell wall but also by turgor pressure and cell geometry, which affect the tension of the cell wall. Although stiffness has been investigated using atomic force microscopy (AFM) and Young’s modulus of the cell […]

NanoWorld Electrochemically Synthesized Poly(3-hexylthiophene) Nanowires as Photosensitive Neuronal Interfaces - news

Electrochemically Synthesized Poly(3-hexylthiophene) Nanowires as Photosensitive Neuronal InterfacesTue Jul 19 2022

Poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT), a hole-conducting polymer, generates a lot of interest especially because of its excellent optoelectronic properties (such as good electrical conductivity and high extinction coefficient) and good processability, which make this polymer an excellent choice for building organic optoelectronic devices (e.g., organic solar cells).  Read more...

MikroMasch Small graphene sealed nanocavities

MikroMasch® HOPG ZYA as the graphene source and MikroMasch® HQ:NSC36/Al BS AFM Probe in useWed Jul 06 2022

Small graphene sealed nanocavities have potential applications as pressure sensors. In this paper hydrogen nanobubbles are induced electrochemically at graphene-mica interfaces. MikroMasch HOPG ZYA is used as the graphene source and MikroMasch HQ:NSC36/Al BS AFM probes are used to study the bubbles.

NANOSENSORS Efficient long-range conduction in cable bacteria through nickel protein wires - news

Efficient long-range conduction in cable bacteria through nickel protein wiresTue Jun 28 2022

Bio-materials typically have an intrinsically low electrical conductivity, and so the availability of a bio-material with extraordinary electrical properties has great potential for new applications in bio-electronics. This prospect of technological application however requires a deeper understanding of the mechanism of electron transport as well as the structure and composition of the conductive fibers in cable bacteria.

NanoWorld Real-time tracking of ionic nano-domains under shear flow - news

Real-time tracking of ionic nano-domains under shear flowMon Jun 20 2022

The behaviour of ions at solid–liquid interfaces underpins countless phenomena, from the conduction of nervous impulses to charge transfer in solar cells. In most cases, ions do not operate as isolated entities, but in conjunction with neighbouring ions and the surrounding solution. In aqueous solutions, recent studies suggest the existence of group dynamics through water-mediated clusters but results allowing direct tracking of ionic domains with atomic precision are scarce.

NANOSENSORS Stress- and Time-Dependent Formation of Self-Lubricating In Situ Carbon (SLIC) Films on Catalytically-Active Noble Alloys - news

Stress- and Time-Dependent Formation of Self-Lubricating In Situ Carbon (SLIC) Films on Catalytically-Active Noble AlloysThu Jun 16 2022

Although catalysis is a popular explanation for tribopolymer generation, the interplay of catalysis, mechanochemistry, and electrostatic interactions remain incompletely understood. There is consensus, however, that the mechanisms for forming a frictional polymer in situ require at least three conditions: the presence of organics, a catalytically-active substrate, and shear between surfaces (i.e., sliding contacts).

NanoWorld Adsorption of SARS-CoV-2 Spike Protein S1 at Oxide Surfaces Studied by High-Speed Atomic Force Microscopy - news

Adsorption of SARS-CoV-2 Spike Protein S1 at Oxide Surfaces Studied by High-Speed Atomic Force MicroscopyWed Jun 08 2022

The ongoing coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) represents a serious threat to the health of millions of people. Respiratory viruses such as SARS-CoV-2 can be transmitted via airborne and fomite routes. The latter requires virion adsorption at abiotic surfaces and most likely involves the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein subunit 1 (S1), which is the outermost point of its envelope. Understanding S1 spike protein interaction with fomite surfaces thus represents an important milestone on the road to fighting the spread of COVID-19.*
In the article “Adsorption of SARS-CoV-2 Spike Protein S1 at Oxide Surfaces Studied by High-Speed Atomic Force Microscopy “ Yang Xin, Guido Grundmeier and Adrian Keller describe how high-speed atomic force microscopy (HS-AFM) is used to monitor the adsorption of the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein S1 at Al2O3(0001) and TiO2(100) surfaces in situ. *
