06/07/2016 Shapes of DNA ropes condensed within viruses

A new paper by Antonio Šiber published in Scientific Reports models the structure and geometry of DNA molecules within viruses. The new work comprises not only the known shapes of packed DNA but also predicts certain novel conformations, which helps explain the functioning of viruses.

05/04/2016 Enhancement of bulk skyrmion stability under pressure

Skyrmions are vortices of spin which appear in chiral magnets. Nanometer-sized domains and low energy make them ideal candidates for future data storage devices. However, their application is hampered by their very narrow temperature window. The latest paper by our colleagues shows that the skyrmion phase can be widened significantly under pressure.

11/11/2015 Drag force on a DNA-protein complex pulled through a glass nanocapillary

Sanjin Marion published a paper in Nano Letters (IF=13.6 in 2014.) together with UKF project collaborators prof. A. Rađenović and R. Bulushev from EPFL on the topic of controlled translocation of individual DNA bound proteins using optical tweezers. S. Marion contributed through interpretation and theoretical modeling of experimental results.


05/10/2015 Nano-rippled graphene – a modified graphene for large scale applications

In their latest Carbon paper, I. Šrut Rakić and M. Kralj together with D. Čapeta (PMF) and M. Plodinec (IRB) describe synthesis of macroscopic nano-rippled graphene on a vicinal metal surface and its transfer to a dielectric support. The procedure opens up possible applications in sensors, electrodes, optoelectronics, spintronics, and straintronics.
