Transistors are needed wherever current flows, and they are an indispensable component of virtually all electronic switches. In the field of power electronics, transistors are used to switch large currents. However, one side-effect is that the components heat up and energy is lost as a result. One w...

Coralline red algae have existed for 130 million years, in other words since the Cretaceous Period, the time of the dinosaurs. At least this was the established view of palaeontologists all over the world until now. However, this classification will now have to be revised after fossils discovered by...

Zombies, Aliens and Dinosaurs are not everyday topics in class at the Faculty of Sciences. However, it is time for FAU's first International Science Slam! Six MSc students have prepared entertaining presentations that will show how those (fantasy) creatures relate to the subjects studied at the Facu...

Being able to control electronic systems using light waves instead of voltage signals is the dream of physicists all over the world. The advantage is that electromagnetic light waves oscillate at petaherz frequency. This means that computers in the future could operate at speeds a million times fast...
