Vacuum fluctuations may be among the most counter-intuitive phenomena of quantum physics. Theorists from the Weizmann Institute (Rehovot, Israel) and the Vienna University of Technology propose a way to amplify their force.
For the first time, a strategic concept for international activities in research and teaching has been developed at the TU Wien.
The Symposium will take place from September 29 until September 30 2014.
Several universities have come together to construct Austria’s most powerful mainframe computer. Phase VSC-3 (Vienna Scientific Cluster 3) offers not only impressive computing power, but also serious energy efficiency.
The Vienna University of Technology is the first venue of the Olympic Games of Logic. Teams from all over the world have developed computer programs which will compete during the “Vienna Summer of Logic”.
The calorie free sweetener erythritol is widely used in Asia; it is also gaining popularity in Europe and America. At the Vienna University of Technology, a new cheap method has been developed to produce erythritol from straw...
The great Viennese logician Kurt Gödel studied statements which refer to themselves – and his results shook the foundations of mathematics.
At the Vienna University of Technology a system of coupled lasers has been created which exhibits truly paradoxical behaviour: An increase in energy supply switches the lasers off, reducing the energy can switch them on.
Once again, Vienna is one of the capitals of logic research, more than 80 years after Kurt Gödel wrote down his incompleteness theorems. The Vienna Circle started the golden age of logic. Now, a new “silver age” has begun.
Using miniaturized laser technology, a tiny sensor has been built at the Vienna University of Technology which can test the chemical composition of liquids.
