The Future of Computing


Recently five international high potential professors started their research at the Faculty of Informatics at TU Wien. Their research areas cover an extensive bandwidth within the discipline that plays a key role in our society.

Ganz unterschiedliche Oberflächenstrukturen lassen sich mit Laserstrahlen herstellen.

Microscopic structures for vibration-resistant plugs


In an Austrian-German research project, laser technology is being used to produce microscopic structures on electrical plugs in order to increase fail safety.

Licht auf dem Weg durch eine Flüssigkeit: Im Falle einer transparenten Flüssigkeit (links) sind Lichtpfade geradlinig. Im Falle einer Trübung durch Nanopartikel (rechts) werden Lichtpfade durch Streuung komplizierter. Manche der Pfade werden dadurch länger

The Path Length of Light in Opaque Media


A seemingly paradoxical prediction in physics has now been confirmed in an experiment: No matter whether an object is opaque or transparent, the average length of the light’s paths through the object is always the same.
