BIOENGINEERING SEMINAR Abstract: Super-resolution fluorescence microscopy is a powerful tool for biological research. We use the transient binding of short fluorescently labeled oligonucleotides (DNA-PAINT) for simple and easy-to-implement multiplexed super-resolution imaging that technically achieves sub-5-nm spatial resolution. However, this does not translate to achievable image resolution in biological specimen, mainly due to the lack of ... Read more about "Super-Resolution Microscopy with DNA Molecules"

Magnetic configurations with chiral properties have attracted enormous interest after the discovery of the magnetic skyrmions lattice in non-centrosymmetric bulk crystals. The asymmetric exchange interaction, Dzylonshinskii-Moriya interaction (DMI) that cooperates with symmetric exchange interaction, dipolar and Zeeman interactions, allows for further non-collinear spin structures beyond skyrmions, such as e.g. spin helices, conical states, and spin ...
