  • A hybrid renewable energy solution
    Grid operators need to do more than simply distribute the electricity generated by wind farms and photovoltaic plants. They also have to ensure a consistent quality of supply. Achieving this with t...
  • Beer can lift your spirits
    Visitors to the Oktoberfest have always known it and now it has been scientifically proven - beer can lift your spirits. Scientists at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) examin...
  • Observing individual atomic collisions during diffusion
    In the world of research, diffusion is understood as a process in which tiny particles uniformly disperse throughout a gas or liquid. Although these media are made up of individual particles, diffu...
  • Is it possible to reduce resistance to chemotherapy?
    Glioblastomas (GBMs) are considered to be the most malignant and dangerous form of brain tumours. The primary form of treatment of these is chemotherapy, which is at least capable of extending life...
  • How molecules are arranged on surfaces
    Individual pieces of a jigsaw puzzle joined together as if moved by magic - that is what FAU materials researchers imagine when they apply molecules to surfaces to produce materials for new technol...
  • Mechanism behind granular capillary effect
    The origin of the granular capillary effect - the rise of sand or other granules in a tube - was a long-standing mystery. Only recently did an international team of physicists succeed in unveiling ...
  • How butterflies form their iridescent wing scales
    It has only been one year since the material scientists around Prof. Erdmann Spiecker from the Centre for Nanoanalysis and Electron Microscopy (CENEM) at FAU were granted funding for one of the wor...
  • Molecular Lego for nanoelectronics
    The ability to assemble electronic building blocks consisting of individual molecules is an important objective in nanotechnology. An interdisciplinary research group at FAU is now significantly cl...
  • Chemically tailored Graphene
    Graphene is considered as one of the most promising new materials. However, the systematic insertion of chemically bound atoms and molecules to control its properties is still a major challenge. No...
  • Method for DNA programmed material synthesis
    For the first time, FAU engineers have succeeded in producing complex crystal lattices, so-called clathrates, from nanoparticles using DNA strands. The programmed synthesis of clathrates represents...
  • Exhaust fumes as a resource
    Chemists at FAU have developed a process in which nitrogen oxides generated during industrial processes can be used in the manufacture of colourants and medicines. Using the method, businesses will...
  • Deep look into protein structure
    Light microscopy continues to reveal the microscopic world at an ever increasing resolution. Using a new method coined COLD, scientists at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light in Erlan...
