  • Racing electrons under control15. November 2018
    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 faster than those...
  • Greater sustainability thanks to improved isotope analysis7. November 2018
    Extracting hydrogen using water electrolysis, that is separating water into oxygen and hydrogen using electric current, could contribute to making energy generated from renewable sources more efficient and cheaper to store in future. This method is still too costly at the moment. An interdisciplinary team of researchers at FAU and...
  • Women in Science – 1st Erlangen Symposium26. October 2018
    Young female scientists of the Department of Chemistry and Pharmacy of Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg invite you to the first “Women in Science” Symposium of FAU. One of the outstanding characteristics of this symposium, which takes place from December 9th – 11th, 2018, is that the organizing committee consists exclusively of...
  • Little helpers react to ultrasound19. September 2018
    Nanoparticles are to be used like transporters to deliver medication in a targeted manner exactly where it is required in the human body? All over the world, scientists are working on so-called drug delivery technologies, as are researchers at FAU. The idea is that nanoparticles should react to ultrasound frequencies...
  • The first predators and their self-repairing teeth18. September 2018
    The earliest predators appeared on Earth 480 million years ago – and they even had teeth which were capable of repairing themselves. A team of palaeontologists led by Bryan Shirley and Madleen Grohganz from the Chair for Palaeoenviromental Research at FAU have been able to discover more about how these...
