Like a string of pearls, the microscopes align in the FAU University Library’s meeting room. Small groups of people stand talking excitedly, others concentrate on their microscopes. They are all participants in the one-week Flügel Course 2017, which due to high demand is offered regularly – twice ye...

The ability to precisely control the interaction between light and atoms is crucial for advancing quantum technology. Many scientists have one long-term goal: To build quantum computers that exceed the power of today’s computers many times over. Dr. Bharath Srivathsan who is a new Alexander von Humb...

Physicists at FAU have entered new territory with regard to the pulsing of electron beams. Their method could soon be used to develop electron microscopes suitable for ultra-short time scales such as needed for observing the motion of atoms. The results of their work have recently appeared in the le...

Chemists at FAU have developed a process in which nitrogen oxides generated during industrial processes can be used in the manufacture of colourants and medicines. Using the method, businesses will in future be able to combine the decontamination of exhaust fumes with the production of new substance...

Light microscopy continues to reveal the microscopic world at an ever increasing resolution. Using a new method coined COLD, scientists at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light in Erlangen have now visualized protein structures with a resolution of around 5 Å. COLD achieves this unpreced...
