Preventing Clumping: How to Keep Proteins Active

Small angle neutron scattering at KWS-1 has enabled scientists of Forschungszentrum Jülich and the University College London to look at the arrangement of proteins inside nanocavities. They showed for the first time, that the molecules do not clump despite limited space and even found the reasons for this behaviour.[more]


Trapped antimatter

For the first time, scientists of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics (IPP) have trapped positrons in a magnetic cage without losses. This is an important step towards a matter-antimatter plasma of electrons and their antiparticles, the positrons, which are assumed to occur in the vicinity of...[more]
