Directly coupling two closely located nanoscale sensors

Coupled oscillations

02-Dec-2019

They look like toothpicks, but much, much smaller: 10,000 times shorter and 1,000 times thinner. The research team around physicist Professor Eva Weig succeeded in constructing nanopillars so closely together that they can be coupled via the strain field and succinctly oscillate together. This ...

Heat transport through single molecules

International team of researchers with participation of the University of Konstanz achieves breakthrough in the area of heat transport at molecular scales

22-Jul-2019

Combining novel theoretical and experimental approaches, researchers from the University of Michigan (USA), Kookmin University (South Korea), the University of Konstanz (Germany) and the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (Japan) have successfully measured and ...

Obtaining polyester from plant oil

New catalysis concept for obtaining polyester from castor oil

14-Dec-2018

The development of future technologies that are not based on mineral oil and can be used for producing chemicals and plastics is one of the major tasks in modern materials science and a key challenge that needs to be addressed if sustainable industrial production is to have a future. A range of ...

Tilted pulses

Extremely short and specifically-shaped electron pulses for materials studies in the femtosecond and attosecond range

06-Sep-2018

Our world is basically made up of atoms and electrons. They are very small and move around very rapidly in case of processes or reactions. Although seeing atoms is nowadays possible, for example with modern electron microscopes, tracking atomic movements requires ultrashort measurement periods in ...

The limits of friction

03-Apr-2018

Friction is created when two surfaces slide one on top of the other. Since this consumes additional energy, this so-called sliding friction is considered an irksome yet inevitable aspect of dynamic processes. However, to set a stationary object in motion, its static friction must be overcome ...

Stable quantum bits

13-Dec-2017

Milestone on the path to the quantum computer: Scientists of the University of Konstanz, Princeton University, and the University of Maryland develop a stable quantum gate for two-quantum bit systems made of silicon. The quantum gate is able to perform all necessary basic operations of the ...

A material with promising properties

Successful synthesis of an important ferromagnetic semiconductor

23-Nov-2017

The Collaborative Research Centre CRC 1214 at the University of Konstanz has developed a method for synthesising Europium (II) oxide nanoparticles - a ferromagnetic semiconductor that is relevant for data storage and data transport Ferromagnetic semiconductors have attracted increasing attention ...

Breakthrough with a chain of gold atoms

Breakthrough in understanding heat transport

20-Feb-2017

The precise control of electron transport in microelectronics makes complex logic circuits possible that are in daily use in smartphones and laptops. Heat transport is of similar fundamental importance and its control is for instance necessary to efficiently cool the ever smaller chips. An ...

Single electrons at top speed

Physicists control currents ten thousand times faster than high-speed electronics

22-Sep-2016

At the University of Konstanz, the Chair for Ultrafast Phenomena and Photonics succeeded in controlling the movement of single electrons on attosecond timescales. One attosecond is the billionth part of a billionth second. The electric field of ultrashort light pulses in this process determines ...

Natural mother of pearl structure, synthetic replication

22-Aug-2016

Biomaterials play a crucial role in the development of future high-performance materials. A naturally occurring example of such biomaterial, the mollusk shell, guides chemical replication processes in laboratories. Due to its complex chemical construction, however, these processes are not easy to ...
