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.
A novel method for curing of epoxy resins has been developed at TU Wien. Local UV flashes initiate a chemical cascade and cure the entire material.
It was considered a practically unreachable goal: focused light in the Terahertz regime consisting of a broad spectrum of wavelengths. At TU Wien (Vienna) this feat has now been accomplished – using a surprising trick.
Charged particles can form via self-organization processes an unexpectedly large range of crystal structures entirely by themselves. A research team with participants from TU Wien has demonstrated how easily the formation of these structures can be...
Scientists at TU Wien (Vienna) found a way to compress ultrashort laser pulses, increasing its peak power to half a terawatt – which is equivalent to the output of hundreds of nuclear reactors.
Intricate nanostructures can be created on crystal surfaces by hitting them with high energy ions. Scientists from TU Wien (Vienna) can now explain these remarkable phenomena.
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.
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.
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.
