Physicists have developed an innovative method that could enable the efficient use of nanocomponents in electronic circuits. To achieve this, they have developed a layout in which a nanocomponent is connected to two electrical conductors, which uncouple the electrical signal in a highly efficient manner. The scientists at the Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel have published their results in the scientific journal Nature Communications together with their colleagues from ETH Zurich. more...

Physicists of the University of Basel and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute were able to show for the first time that the nuclear spins of single molecules can be detected with the help of magnetic particles at room temperature. In Nature Nanotechnology, the researchers describe a novel experimental setup with which the tiny magnetic fields of the nuclear spins of single biomolecules – undetectable so far – could be registered for the first time. The proposed concept would improve medical diagnostics as well as analyses of biological and chemical samples in a decisive step forward. more...

Optical measurement systems will play a key role when running the fusion reactor ITER that is currently built in Southern France. Researchers at the Department of Physics of the University of Basel have successfully tested a method with which mirrors can be cleaned inside the reactor. The results are summarized in the Journal of Nuclear Materials. Further information can also be found in the ITER News. more...
