Technology for People

Our mission is "technology for people". Through our research we "develop scientific excellence",
through our teaching we "enhance comprehensive competence".

The Vienna University of Technology – TU Wien (TUW) – is located in the heart of Europe, in a cosmopolitan city of great cultural diversity. For nearly 200 years, the TU Wien has been a place of research, teaching and learning in the service of progress. The TU Wien is among the most successful technical universities in Europe and is Austria’s largest scientific-technical research and educational institution.

Two circular Raman lasers are coupled and supplied with energy through an optical fiber (see yellow line).

Winning by Losing


A seemingly paradoxical laser effect, which had been predicted by scientists from the Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien) has now been confirmed by a new experiment, published in „Science“.more ...

Light hits a gold particle, which then emits light into a glass fibre - into only one direction.

Nanoparticles Break the Symmetry of Light


Nanoparticles can emit light into ultra-thin glass fibres. Physicists at the Vienna University of Technology have now managed to select the direction of the light using an unusual kind of coupling between spin and the direction...more ...

Computer simulations show the electron flux from one atom to the others.

Laser Pulse turns Glass into a Metal


For tiny fractions of a second, quartz glass can take on metallic properties, when it is illuminated be a laser pulse. This has been shown by calculations at the Vienna University of Technology. The effect could be used to build...more ...
