When stars like our Sun use up all their fuel, they shrink to form white dwarfs. Sometimes such dead stars flare back to life in a super hot explosion and produce a fireball of X-ray radiation. A research team led by FAU has now been able to observe such an explosion of X-ray light for the very firs...

Simulating complex scientific models on the computer or processing large volumes of data such as editing video material takes considerable computing power and time. Researchers from the Chair of Laser Physics at FAU and a team from the University of Rochester in New York have demonstrated how the sp...

A new DFG research group led by Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg (JMU) is investigating ultra-high energy jets. Two astrophysicists from FAU are also involved. The research group will be funded with a total of 3.6 million euros over the next four years. Black holes can be found in the cent...

The Faculty of Sciences is happy to announce its first Wilhelmine-Lecture for Young Investigators. The Wilhelmine-Lecture-Series, named after one of FAU's earliest benefactors, is a new format which has been set up to provide outstanding young international investigators with the opportunity to pres...

Repairing complex electrical appliances is time consuming and rarely cost-effective. The working group led by Prof. Dr. Karl Mandel, Professorship of Inorganic Chemistry at FAU, has now developed a smart microparticle that enables defective components in these appliances to be identified more quickl...
