A novel nanoactuator system has been developed

Researchers at University of Jyväskylä (Finland) and University of Tampere (Finland) together with BioNavis Ltd (Finland) have developed a novel nanoactuator system, where conformation of biomolecule can be tuned by electric field and probed using optical properties of gold nanoparticle.

New data for understanding how heavier elements are made in the Cosmos

Nuclear binding energies of several rare-earth isotopes have been measured for the first time. The experiment carried out in the Accelerator Laboratory of the University of Jyväskylä, Finland, provides essential data for understanding how elements heavier than iron are produced in the Cosmos.
