Record-breaking Terahertz Laser Beam

22-Jan-2020

A new, extremely efficient source of terahertz radiation has been developed at TU Wien (Vienna): Lasers turn air into plasma, thereby producing terahertz rays for many possible applications. Terahertz radiation is used for security checks at airports, for medical examinations and also for quality ...

A new look at 'strange metals'

20-Jan-2020

For years, a new synthesis method has been developed at TU Wien (Vienna) to unlock the secrets of "strange metals". Now a breakthrough has been achieved. Superconductors allow electrical current to flow without any resistance - but only below a certain critical temperature. Many materials have to ...

New Material Breaks World Record Turning Heat into Electricity

15-Nov-2019

A new type of material generates electrical current very efficiently from temperature differences. This allows sensors and small processors to supply themselves with energy wirelessly. Thermoelectric materials can convert heat into electrical energy. This is due to the so-called Seebeck effect: ...

Researchers develop new 3D printing for the direct production of nanostructures

14-Nov-2019

A team from Graz University of Technology succeeded in using the FEBID method to produce complex 3D-printed nano-components for the first time without additional support structures. In the nanometer range, complex, free-standing 3D architectures are very difficult to produce in a single step due ...

Atomic images reveal unusually many neighbors for some oxygen atoms

22-Oct-2019

The identification of new chemical bonds is crucial for the design of new material structures. A team led by Jani Kotakoski at the University of Vienna and Jannik Meyer at the University of Tübingen has found unexpected new configurations of oxygen and nitrogen in graphene. Direct images of the ...

The fast dance of electron spins

Chemists investigate the interactions of metal complexes and light

07-Oct-2019

Metal complexes show a fascinating behavior in their interactions with light, which for example is utilized in organic light emitting diodes, solar cells, quantum computers, or even in cancer therapy. In many of these applications, the electron spin, a kind of inherent rotation of the electrons, ...

2000 atoms in two places at once

A new record of quantum superposition

30-Sep-2019

The quantum superposition principle has been tested on a scale as never before in a new study by scientists at the University of Vienna in collaboration with the University of Basel. Hot, complex molecules composed of nearly two thousand atoms were brought into a quantum superposition and made to ...
