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.
Scientists from Vienna and Moscow have created a high-energy mid-infrared laser powerful enough to create shining filaments in the air. Such devices could be used to detect chemical substances in the atmosphere.
Ultrashort laser pulses have become an indispensable tool for atomic and molecular research. A new technology makes creating short infrared pulses easy and cheap.
A new invention opens the door to a new generation of outdoor displays. Different pictures can be seen at different angles, creating 3D effects without the need for 3D glasses.
Laser pulses can be used to track the motion of electrons in metals with attosecond precision. This helps to understand and possibly improve important electronic effects.
Joyeux Noël et Bonne Année!
