Crystals are not necessarily hard and resistant but also occur in soft matter when weakly bound molecules arrange in a regular order. Such organic crystals are widespread in pharmaceuticals products, but also occur as tiny nanocrystals in the active layer of organic solar cells. Here, the organic na...

In situ TEM investigations in environmental conditions are a powerful approach to analyze materials for catalysis, especially if you utilize dedicated MEMS heating systems to operate at elevated temperatures. However, how can we be certain that the heating devices achieve the required temperature at...

The article “Effect of size and shape on the elastic modulus of metal nanowires” by Lilian Vogl, Peter Schweizer, Gunther Richter and Erdmann Spiecker has recently been published in MRS Advances. Congratulations, Lili and Peter! The IMN researchers make use of the resonance vibration of metal nanowi...
