Researchers from FAU, the University of Bristol and the University of Nottingham (UK) have developed a new procedure which allows fat residues to be analysed better than ever before in vessels that are thousands of years old. Mass spectrometry imaging can be used to determine the distribution and co...

After 182 days, the x-ray telescope eROSITA on board the Spectrum-X-Gamma space probe has completed its first complete survey of the sky. This new map of the hot, energetic universe includes more than one million objects, effectively doubling the number of known x-ray sources discovered in the 60 ye...

In a network within the ‘Central Innovation Programme for SME’ led by geologists from FAU, scientists and representatives of SMEs are investigating the potential of a new form of geothermal energy: shallow geothermal systems and low-temperature district heating networks. The network partners have al...
