Is the “supermarket revolution” in developing countries only a symptom of the new lifestyles in these countries, or is the spread of supermarkets causing changes in people’s diets and weights? This question was recently analysed by a team of researchers from the University of Göttingen. more...



Electronic charge distribution on the atomic scale

PI_80_2015_90

Scientists from the University of Göttingen and the Jülich Research Centre have made an important step towards a deeper understanding of metal-semiconductor interfaces. By means of a novel experimental approach the researchers investigated the distribution of the electronic charge at these interfaces on the atomic scale. more...



Watching synapses at work

fiala_synapsen1_90

Using a novel method, scientists at Göttingen University can monitor the activity of nerve cells in the brains of living fruit flies. Using high-resolution two-photon microscopy, researchers are now able to follow how certain synapses in the intact brain of the Drosophila melanogaster fruit fly react to odour stimulation more...



The world’s smallest resistances

Scientists from the Universities of Göttingen and Erlangen have made an important step towards a deeper understanding of smallest resistances. Using a scanning tunnelling microscope, the researchers succeeded in resolving the spatial extent of a voltage drop with sub-nanometer resolution for the first time. more...
