Mutually worn mouth-nose protection reduces the risk of infection with the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

Out of mutual consideration and for the protection of persons at particular risk, the wearing of a protective mask (for stronger self-protection, if necessary, FFP2 mask) is still recommended indoors, especially in confined space situations and at events.

29.08.2022 Floating nanoparticles - surprising connection through light

Held only by a beam of light, nanoparticles float in space and seemingly suspend the laws of physics. In experiments, researchers from UDE together with partners from Vienna were able to observe a completely new mechanism in the light-induced bonding of nanoparticles. Their research results now appear in the renowned Science magazine.
