In ihrer natürlichen Umgebung sind menschliche Zellen nie allein. Ob Blut- Haut- oder Nervenzellen, sie leben in Kolonien zusammen, ziehen aneinander und rempeln sich an. Diese mechanischen Impulse bleiben nicht ohne Folge, sondern stoßen bestimmte biochemische Prozesse an.
The opening of the exhibition “Colorful – Small – Everywhere. Microplastics from the river to the sea” will take place on Friday, 11.06.2021 at 15:00, in the NTNM Library as a closed event. The exhibition will be open until July 31.
It is impossible to imagine the modern world without electronic sensors, and certainly not the automotive world. They increase the reliability of vehicles, enable new functions, and help reduce costs. To do this, they must be safe from manipulation – which is not always the case today.
All over the world, hydrogen is seen as a beacon of hope for the energy transition. But to produce it on an industrial scale, seawater is needed. However, its desalination has so far only been possible with the use of large amounts of energy. Energy experts Yuan Zhang and Volker Presser have found a way
Self-ventilating sportswear, self-healing concrete walls, bio-plastics that dissolve after use, or implants for the long-term and personalized delivery of drugs to the body are just a few examples of the application of so-called “living materials”. The Leibniz ScienceCampus “Living Therapeutic Materials” based in Saarbrücken is dedicating this four-day international conference “Engineered Living Materials” to the
What makes a gecko able to climb almost any wall? And how can we benefit from the underlying phenomenon for industrial pick-and-place applications?
Nanoscribe News gives you the answer.
The INM – Leibniz Institute for New Materials in Saarbrücken is a partner in the EU project I-Seed. The goal of the project is to develop intelligent plant seed-inspired soft robots that disperse on and in the soil to monitor soil and climate parameters.
The INM – Leibniz Institute for New Materials names Martin Müser as its sixth INM Fellow. The professor of materials simulation is the first materials scientist at Saarland University with whom INM is cooperating more closely in this way. He uses simulations to investigate how to improve adhesive structures.
Professor of New Materials and Scientific Director and Chairman of the INM – Leibniz Institute for New Materials Eduard Arzt will receive the “Excellence in Adhesion Award” of the American Adhesion Society on February 22, 2021. The award ceremony will include an honorary colloquium at the annual meeting of the Adhesion Society with a keynote
Thousands of tons of space debris are currently orbiting the Earth, and the number is growing. Most of it is the remnants of completed space missions or decommissioned satellites. The dangerous thing about it is that even centimeter-sized pieces can cause immense damage in a collision with active satellites, spacecraft, and space stations. Researchers at
Since January 1, 2021, the junior research group “Electrofluids” at INM – Leibniz Institute for New Materials in Saarbrücken has been investigating unusual electrically conductive materials. Dr. Lola González-García, head of the new group, was awarded a Starting Grant of 1.5 million Euros by the European Research Council (ERC) last year.
