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.
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.
