Better Imaging Using Sound

A microscopy technique in which sound is measured instead of light.

28-Sep-2018

Individual molecules cannot be photographed – if you wish to visualise objects that are smaller than the wavelength of light, you'll need a few special tricks up your sleeve. You can use electron microscopes for example, or determine the position of specific fluorescent molecules by taking a ...

Superradiance: Quantum Effect Detected in Tiny Diamonds

05-Sep-2018

Under certain conditions, an atom can cause other atoms to emit a flash of light. At TU Wien (Vienna), this quantum effect has now been measured. The effect has been predicted theoretically decades ago - but it is very hard to provide experimental evidence for it: "Superradiance" is the ...

Watching two-dimensional materials grow

30-Aug-2018

Atomically thin crystals will play an ever greater role in future – but how can their crystallisation process be controlled? A new method is now opening up new possibilities. They are among the thinnest structures on earth: “two dimensional materials” are crystals which consist of only one or a ...

The world’s cleanest water droplet

24-Aug-2018

What effect does water have on ultra-clean surfaces? Using a novel method, researchers at TU Wien and Cornell University have succeeded in demonstrating that smallest impurities can have a surprising effect. In nature there is no such thing as a truly clean surface. Contact with normal air is ...

Tailored Polymers from a Printer

Efficient chain transfer for 3D-printing of tough photopolymers

10-Jul-2018

An ever-growing number of coatings, including varnishes and printing inks, as well as tooth fillings, are cured with light. Yet, homogenous, tailored, polymer networks cannot be produced, and the materials tend to be brittle, which limits the use of photopolymers in applications like 3D printing, ...

Perfect Images: A High-Performance Microscope Dangling From Bungee Cords

Patented vibration damping system enables images of highest quality

10-Apr-2018

To produce images of individual atoms, a microscope shouldn't shake. A patented vibration damping system developed at the TU Wien enables images of the highest quality. It is one of the most accurate measurement instruments available today: the high-performance microscope at the Institute of ...

Incorporating high proportions of foreign atoms into crystals

07-Mar-2018

When you bake a cake, you can combine the ingredients in almost any proportions, and they will still always be able to mix together. This is a little more complicated in materials chemistry. Often, the aim is to change the physical properties of a material by adding a certain proportion of an ...

Exotic state of matter

26-Feb-2018

What is inside an atom, between the nucleus and the electron? Usually there is nothing, but why could there not be other particles too? If the electron orbits the nucleus at a great distance, there is plenty of space in between for other atoms. A "giant atom" can be created, filled with ordinary ...

Quantum Recurrence: Everything Goes Back to the Way it was

26-Feb-2018

At some point, complex systems return almost exactly to their initial state. For the first time, this recurrence theorem has now been demonstrated with complex quantum many-body systems at TU Wien (Vienna). It is one of the most astonishing results of physics: when a complex system is left alone, ...

Strange things happen when a crystal gets split in two

05-Feb-2018

When a crystal is broken along certain directions the atoms reorganize in amazing ways. Researchers in Vienna have watched this happen, and have learned to control it. The remarkable strength of ionic crystals is easily explained at the atomic scale: Positively and negatively charged atoms sit ...
