When droplets become stars: charged droplets beyond Rayleigh instability

MPSD Seminar
The charge-induced instabilities of conducting and dielectric drops in an electric field have been studied over a century, starting from the seminar works of Lord Rayleigh, J. Zeleny, G. I. Taylor. The significance of the study is found in the presence of charged droplets in jets, electrospray mass spectrometry methods and atmospheric aerosols. In low temperature physics, applications of the confinement of electrons on the surface of liquid helium add new perspective on the significance of the study of the instabilities. [mehr]

Advances in membrane-protein crystallization: From detergent-free crystallization to in situ approaches

MPSD Seminar
Three-dimensional structures of membrane proteins are of paramount value for understanding protein function on a molecular level. However, in vitro studies such as structure determination are impaired by the necessity to purify membrane proteins with the aid of detergents that often compromise protein stability and function.
