The world’s smallest resistances

nature_willke_90

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...

Sulphor feeds “living fossils” in the deep sea

Tiefsee_Kiel_90

Most life on Earth depends on food produced through photosynthesis by plants or marine plankton. In contrast, animals at deep-sea hydrothermal vents and methane seeps live in symbiosis with sulphur-oxidising bacteria. Dr. Steffen Kiel, palaeontologist from the University of Göttingen, has analysed the fossil record of these ecosystems in the past 150 million years. more...



Living fossils with modern limbs

A team of researchers from the Universities of Göttingen and Uppsala investigated the genetic developmental mechanisms in prehistoric onychophorans. They were thus quite surprised, because they hardly found noteworthy differences to the gene regulation of modern-day arthropods and onychophorans. more...
