Dance of the Nanovortices

The trajectories of small magnetic entities referred to as skyrmions have been captured and recorded with the help of X-ray holography. Researchers gained new insight from the analysis of this motion: these nanoscale vortices possess mass. The discovery is published in Nature Physics 2 February 2015.

Pump-probe powder diffraction on ferroelectric materials with a time resolution of 50µs at ALBA

An international group of researchers from Germany and France have investigated structural changes of industrially relevant ferroelectric materials on a time scale down to 50 microseconds. Ferroelectrics find a multitude of applications as actuators, sensors, or data storage devices.

Exploring microsolvation of the anethetic propofol

This infrared spectroscopic investigation provides a deeper understanding of the microsolvation process of the widely-used, short-acting anethetic propofol. Microsolvation is one of the cornerstones in revealing the precise mechanism underlying the action of this anesthetic agent.

Nanosolvation of a protonated peptide dimer in the gas phase

The structure and functionality of biomolecules are intrinsically linked with the aqueous environment dominating in vivo. In particular, scientists are aiming at understanding the effect of the surrounding water solvation shell on the conformation and stability of these species.
