Excellence achieved, great things expected to come: this is how the conditions for the Humboldt Research Award can be summarised. Award winner Prof. Hai Wang from Stanford is now spending six months researching with colleagues at NETZ.
Even a tiny drop would be far too much: a team from the Center for Nanointegration (CENIDE) had polymers autonomously formed into tiny cups – for possible applications in medicine or environmental technology. They published their results in "Angewandte Chemie".
Mathematician and UDE Professor Dr. Marc Levine is receiving one of the much sought-after ERC Advanced Grants. With these grants the European Research Council is supporting groundbreaking and visionary research.
In the future, our smartphone could suggest that when it notices that we're under a lot of stress. The basis for this is mood tracking apps that can help structure our everyday lives. Scientists are now looking for volunteers.
Imagine designing a new material with a Lego kit: Put simply, this is what Dr. Anna Grünebohm does. She succeeded in recruiting one of the coveted Emmy Noether junior research groups, and will be funded with more than €1.3 million for six years.
Dr Corina Andronescu was appointed junior professor for electrochemical catalysis at the UDE. She is researching a complementary solution – the electrochemical conversion of CO2 into usable fuels such as methanol, called "Dream Reaction".
A previously unknown network of fine capillaries directly connecting the bone marrow with the circulation of the periosteum has been discovered by a team of scientists led by Prof. Matthias Gunzer and Dr. Anja Hasenberg.
Prof.nDoris Segets took up the professorship for “Process Engineering of Electrochemical Functional Materials” at the UDE. Already, she has been appointed to the board of directors of the NanoEnergieTechnikZentrum (NETZ).
Social media are often criticized: fake news and social bots manipulate and disturb public communication. At the same time, they generate a large amount of data in real time during disasters. A new research project deals with this area of tension.
Researchers pave the way for graphene-based nanoelectronics
Scientists have shown for the first time that graphene can actually convert electronic signals with frequencies in the gigahertz range extremely efficiently into signals with several times higher frequency.
