Special awards for this year's 'Jugend forscht' winners

Once a year the CeNTech GmbH and its partner Bioanalytik Münster e. V. award young researchers in the field of physics and biology, winners from the 'Jugend forscht' regional competition operated by the IHK Nordwestfalen, with a special recognition. In their welcomes the heads of the two awarding institutions, Dr. Robbers und Dr. Weltring, payed tribute to the achievements of the 3 high school graduates. "For many years we have been accompanying the competition and honoring outstanding work by talented young scientists."

Sensing interactions between molecules

CeNTech scientists develop a method to visualize interactions between molecules with exceptional resolution in real-space. The method is based on low-temperature atomic force microscopy (AFM) and uses a copper-based probe tip, which is terminated by a single oxygen atom. The team around Dr. Harry Mönig, Dr. Saeed Amirjalayer and Prof. Harald Fuchs demonstrates the exceptional mechanical and chemical stability of this atomically defined probe tip. These properties allow a spatial resolution on the sub-molecular scale allowing to visualize the bonding structure of a hydrogen bonded molecular network. This study has now been published in Nature Nanotechnology.

Prof. Pernice: grant for the development of adaptable computers

Faster and more powerful computers: CeNTech Prof. Wolfram Pernice from the Physical Institute of the University of Münster, together with scientists from Belgium, France, Great Britain and Switzerland, want to develop an intelligently networked computer technology that works in a similar way to a brain. The consortium was granted more than 4 mio Euros by the EU.
