At TU Wien, it was possible to create a nanoscale optical element that regulates the flow of light particles at the intersection of two glass fibers like a roundabout. A single atom was used to control the light paths.
Prestigious distinction for the Head of the Institute for Design and Assessment of Technology
How can quantum information be stored as long as possible? An important step forward in the development of quantum memories has been achieved by a research team of TU Wien.
Sharp metal needles can be used to emit electrons. A quantum effect opens up new possibilities of controlling electron emission with extremely high accuracy.
Scientists observe how quantum superpositions build up in a helium atom within femtoseconds. Just like in the famous double-slit experiment, there are two ways to reach the final outcome.
Scientists from TU Wien (Vienna, Austria) and Germany present the most accurate time measurements of quantum jumps to date.
It is the Philosopher’s Stone of Nanotechnology: using a technological trick, scientists at TU Wien (Vienna) have succeeded in creating nanostructures made of pure gold.
How can you produce a magnet with exactly the right magnetic field? TU Wien has a solution: for the first time, magnets can be made with a 3D printer.
A laser and detector in one: a microscopic sensor has been developed at TU Wien, which can be used to identify different gases simultaneously.
The solid state physicist Jan Kuneš is relocating his research project from Prague to Vienna, bringing another ERC Consolidator Grant to TU Wien. He is working on exotic magnetic transitions.
