Organic Nanospintronics
[PROJECT] ORANOS - Organic Nanospintronics
ID: 280020
Start date: 2012-03-01, End date: 2017-02-28
Research on organic spintronics, which is especially promising due to the prospects of exceptionally long spin lifetimes in organic semiconductors, is currently in a critical phase. After a very successful starting period, progress is now being hampered, largely due to a limi...

Smart Systems for Small Molecule Activation and Sustainable Homogeneous Catalysis
ID: 279097
Start date: 2012-01-01, End date: 2016-12-31
This proposal addresses currently unresolved fundamental questions concerning the activation and functionalization in homogeneous catalysis of challenging, inherently unreactive substrates like NH3, CO2 or water. Responsive ligands in combination with earth-abundant first row...

Theoretical Foundations and Observational Tests of Inflationary Cosmology
ID: 279617
Start date: 2011-10-01, End date: 2016-09-30
Observations of the temperature fluctuations in the cosmic microwave background (CMB) have transformed cosmology into a quantitative science. This revolution has led to a detailed understanding of the geometry and composition of the universe. However, the microphysical origin...

Electrochemistry in fluidic nanodevices: From fundamentals to integrated sensor platforms
ID: 278801
Start date: 2011-09-01, End date: 2016-08-31
I propose to explore the frontiers of electrochemistry at the nanometer scale by developing new experimental approaches based on lithographically fabricated fluidic nanodevices. This will allow groundbreaking experiments on a broad range of fundamental topics including double...

Modular Assembly of DNA-based systems; bio-inspired artificial allosteric assemblies
ID: 280010
Start date: 2011-09-01, End date: 2016-08-31
Artificial allosteric systems, i.e. (semi-)synthetic systems that give an autonomous response to changes in their environment, are of great interest for applications as sensors, drug delivery and drug targeting. The overall aim of this proposal is the development of bio-inspi...

Chatting with Neurons: A novel approach to the study of neurophysiologic responses of neuronal tissue in vitro, combining nanotechnology, tissue engineering, microfluidics and neuroelectrophysiology
ID: 280281
Start date: 2011-10-01, End date: 2016-09-30
Laboratory-on-a-Chip technology was introduced in this field. To avoid the complexity of an animal model and to reduce the number of animals for pre-clinical research cell culture models are important. Here, the combination of microfluidics, tissue engineering and neuroelectr...

Analysis of the Dark Universe through Lensing Tomography
ID: 279396
Start date: 2012-01-01, End date: 2016-12-31
The discoveries that the expansion of the universe is accelerating due to an unknown “dark energy” and that most of the matter is invisible, highlight our lack of understanding of the major constituents of the universe. These surprising findings set the stage for research in ...

Prostate cancer localization by contrast-ultrasound angiogenesis imaging
ID: 280209
Start date: 2012-06-01, End date: 2018-05-31
Prostate cancer causes over 1/4 of new cancer cases and 1/10 of cancer deaths in western males. Efficient methods for early treatment are available. Many lives could therefore be saved by early cancer detection, but this is not viable due to the inadequacy of the available no...

The Moment of Truth for WIMP Dark Matter
[PROJECT] WIMPS KAIROS - The Moment of Truth for WIMP Dark Matter
ID: 277591
Start date: 2011-11-01, End date: 2016-10-31
Identifying Dark Matter is a top priority in Particle Physics and Cosmology. Among Dark Matter candidates, WIMPs (weakly interacting massive particles) play a special role, since they naturally arise from well motivated extensions of the standard model of particle physics. As...

Phosphorus dynamics in low-oxygen marine systems: quantifying the nutrient-climate connection in Earth’s past, present and future
ID: 278364
Start date: 2012-01-01, End date: 2016-12-31
Phosphorus (P) is a key and often limiting nutrient for phytoplankton in the ocean. A strong positive feedback exists between marine P availability, primary production and ocean anoxia: increased production leads to ocean anoxia, which, in turn, decreases the burial efficienc...
