Novel microscope traces the first steps of achemical reaction by measuring the interaction of oxygen with a single molecule with unprecedented resolution.
To gain an in-depth understanding of the mechanistic complexity and dynamics of hAgo2 researchers at the RUN performed time-resolved single-molecule FRET measurements – a method that allows distance measurements in the subnanometer range. Combining biochemical and biophysical expertise in one lab ultimately allowed the team led by Prof. Dina Grohmann and Dr. Sarah Willkomm to monitor conformational changes of hAgo2 in real-time with millisecond time resolution.
Researchers at the RUN have found a fascinating way to push a select atom with controlled forces so quickly that we can choreograph the motion of a single molecule within less than a trillionth of a second.
Researchers unveil the unprecedented capability to precisely gauge the authentic count of chromophores and track exciton diffusion in DNA origami and conjugated polymer aggregates at mind-boggling ultrafast time scales.
The RUN is a research facility dedicated to combine biology, chemistry and physics in understanding dynamics at the smalles length scales
