Fluorescence microscopy is one of the most convenient and widespread tools used in the life sciences. An important challenge, however, is to improve its spatial resolution, which is limited to about 200 nm. Recent “super-resolution” techniques such as photoactivation-localization microscopy (PALM) can provide images with a spatial resolution of tens of nm. Most studies performed with these techniq ...

Polymer - Carbon Nanotubes Active Systems for Photovoltaics (POCAONTAS)

Start date: Nov 1, 2012, End date: Oct 31, 2016,

Organic solar cells (OSC) feature several advantages over “classical” silicon solar cells: low cost, energy effective production, low weight and semi-transparency. This makes them apt for novel applications like, building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) with high market potential. However, both the efficiency and the long-term stability must be enhanced for OSCs to become profitable. POCAONTAS wil ...

Ensuring STABiLIty in organic Solar cells (ESTABLIS)

Start date: Jan 1, 2012, End date: Dec 31, 2015,

The Earth receives the energy in 1 hour required for all human needs in a year. Harvesting solar energy will reduce harmful CO2 emissions and resolve the forthcoming energy deficit that other sources alone cannot make up. The market for stable, cheap, roll-to-roll mass-produced organic solar cells (OSCs) is estimated at 1 billion Euros by 2016. The ITN ESTABLIS will produce a team of 11 ESRs and 4 ...

"Bacterial resistance to antibiotics is one of medicine's most vexing challenges. Most antibiotics initially work really well, killing more than 99.9% of microbes they target. But through mutation and the selection pressure exerted by the antibiotic, a few inevitably manage to survive, and flourish as antibiotic-resistant strains. Hence, new strategies to design antibiotic to combat drug-resistant ...
