The myelin sheath is an essential part of the nervous system, which enables rapid signal conduction. Damage of this complex membrane system results in demyelinating diseases such as multiple sclerosis (MS). The process in which myelin is generated in vivo is called myelination. In our study, we investigated the adhesion process of large unilamellar vesicles with a supported membrane bilayer...

After exposure to mixed water/cosolvent vapor, hydrated thin films of stimuli-responsive block copolymers with PNIPAM or PNIPMAM blocks exhibit a co-nonsolvency behavior. In a rapid film contraction, in either system, both water and cosolvent are expelled. Film swelling and contraction kinetics from saturated vapor are investigated in time-of-flight neutron reflectometry (ToF-NR) with...

In organic photovoltaics, donor - acceptor bulk heterojunctions are often used as active layer due to their superior performance compared to e.g. planar structured devices. In this optically active polymer layer, photons are absorbed, excitons are created, subsequently dissipated at a material interface and hence free charges are provided. A promising low-bandgap electron donor material is the...

The small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) on the rat lymphocyte nuclei demonstrates the bi-fractal nature of the chromatin structural organization. The measurements were carried out at the KWS-3 instrument in the momentum transfer range $[ 10^{-3} - 9 \cdot 10^{-2}]$ nm$^{-1}$ and at the KWS-2 instrument in the momentum transfer range $[9 \cdot 10^{-2} - 2]$ nm$^{-1}$ at MLZ, Garching,...

We report a new, simplified approach for analysis of grazing incidence scattering
measurements used to investigate supported lipid bilayers on hexagonal arrays of
nanowires. The method exploits measurements of different physical structures or different scattering contrasts in studies of a fixed array of nanowires. The ratio of the intensity at peaks can be calculated for models simply as a...

Upon heating through the cloud point, poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAM) in aqueous solution forms long-lived dispersions of mesoglobules. At atmospheric pressure, these mesoglobules are small and strongly dehydrated, and their further growth and coalescence are hindered by the viscoelastic effect. On the contrary, at high pressures, large, water-rich aggregates are formed by PNIPAM [1]....

This study investigates the role of charged lipids in the plasma membrane with respect to the interaction of the antiviral saponin glycyrrhizin with such membranes. Glycyrrhizin is a natural triterpenic-based surfactant found in licorice. Vesicles made of 1,2-dioleoyl-sn-glycero-3-phospho-rac-(1’-glycerol) (DOPG)/glycyrrhizin are characterized by small-angle scattering with neutrons and X-rays...

It is well known, the properties of magnetic fluids can be controlled by external magnetic field. However, inhomogeneous distribution of magnetic particles in non-polar ferrofluids was observed recently under external electric fields and formation of large aggregates was concluded in such systems. It was shown that aggregation process depends on the magnitude of the DC electric field, and in...

The vibrational density of state (VDOS) of the most stable crystal of a given species follows the prediction of the Debye model. In contrast, glasses generally exhibit excess in the VDOS visible as a bump in the meV range and widely known as the boson peak. Its magnitude depends on the thermodynamic state of the glass. Specifically, the magnitude of the boson peak scales with the entropy and...
