  • Why organisms shrink26. February 2020
    Everyone is talking about global warming. A team of palaeontologists at GeoZentrum Nordbayern at FAU has recently investigated how prehistoric organisms reacted to climate change, basing their research on belemnites. These shrunk significantly when the water temperature rose as a result of volcanic activity approximately 183 million years ago, during...
  • How quickly are electrons transferred?31. January 2020
    A team of researchers at the Department of Physics has developed a method which can be used to reliably measure the speed of electron transfer between two materials. This could lead to the development of innovative electronic components with ultrafast transfer rates. The results were published in the specialist journal...

  • 3 million EUR for atomic layer 3D printing31. January 2020
    The prospects of additive manufacturing (3D printing) as a versatile tool for prompt and inexpensive prototyping are extremely promising. This family of methods are set to make fabrication processes faster, more efficient in terms of the raw materials and energy required, and more flexible. However, additive manufacturing has not yet...
  • EU funds “NeutroCure” with 3 Mio. Euros8. January 2020
    A medicine is being developed at FAU which controls the concentration of oxygen radicals in immune cells, and could revolutionise treatment of inflammatory diseases or even cancer. The ‘NeutroCure’ project has received funding of approximately three million euros from the European Union as part of the Horizon 2020 programme. Reactive...
