The demise of the Maya civilisation: water shortage can destroy cultures

Warum wurden nach der "klassischen Periode" keine Maya-Tempel mehr gebaut? [1]

Mathematical models analysing the interplay between society and hydrological effects have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna). They provide insights into ancient cultures – as well as into our own future. More

„Artificial Atom“ Created in Graphene

Die elektrisch geladene Spitze eines Rastertunnelmikroskops (oben) und ein zusätzliches Magnetfeld führen zu stabilen, lokalisierten Elektronenzuständen im Graphen.

Electrons reveal their quantum properties when they are confined to small spaces. Scientists from TU Wien (Vienna), Aachen and Manchester have created tiny quantum dots in Graphene. More

Lonely Atoms, Happily Reunited

Zwei Platinatome auf der Magnetitoberfläche können eine Bindung eingehen, wenn sie mit CO-Molekülen verbunden sind.

The remarkable behaviour of platinum atoms on magnetite surfaces could lead to better catalysts. Scientists at TU Wien (Vienna) can now explain how platinum atoms can form pairs with the help of carbon monoxide. More

The Exception and its Rules

Ausnahmepunkte - Lösungen von Gleichungen in komplexen Räumen

"Exceptional points" give rise to counter-intuitive physical effects. Researchers from TU Wien (Vienna) make use of these phenomena to create a novel kind of wave guide, which is now being presented in the journal “Nature”. More

A glimpse inside the atom

So kann man sich die Graphen-Orbitale rund um eine Fehlstelle vorstellen.

Using electron microscopes, it is possible to image individual atoms. Scientists at TU Wien have calculated how it is possible to look inside the atom to image individual electron orbitals. More

Shaping Drops: Control over Stiction and Wetting

Je nach Beschaffenheit der Oberfläche benetzt Wasser das Material unterschiedlich gut (blau und rot)

Some surfaces are wetted by water, others are water-repellent. TU Wien (Vienna), KU Leuven and the University of Zürich have discovered a robust surface whose adhesive and wetting properties can be switched using electricity. This remarkable result... More

How a cold gets into cells

Victor Weiss, Christina Löcker, Günter Allmaier

Viruses smuggle their genetic material into our cells. How this actually works is currently being investigated at TU Wien (Vienna) using a new combination of analysis methods. More

Misleading Images in Cell Biology

Mehrfachbelichtung heißt nicht unbedingt, dass es Cluster gibt.

Virtually all membrane proteins have been reported to be organized as clusters on cell surfaces, when in fact many of them are just single proteins which have been counted multiple times. A method developed at TU Wien (Vienna) can now distinguish... More

Euro 2016: Computer Predicts Football Results

Gerhard "Hardy" Hanappi hat die wahrscheinlichsten Ergebnisse der EM2016-Gruppenphase vorausberechnet.

A computer simulation created at TU Wien (Vienna) predicts the results of the group stage of the Euro 2016: France, Slovakia, Poland, Belgium and Austria are predicted to win all three group stage matches, Italy will not make it to the next round. More
