New insights into quantum phenomena at phase transitions

Quantum matter: entanglement of many atoms detected for the first time

In the past, quantum phenomena could be investigated only in the realm of just a few atoms. A research team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and the Technical University of Dresden (TUD) has now discovered conditions for which quantum entanglement dominates on much larger scales. The results suggest new approaches to the exploration of quantum phenomena and their practical applications such as quantum computing.

Detailed images of cells with X-ray contrast agents

How contrast agents disperse inside cells

Contrast agents are often used to improve the imaging of soft tissue in micro-computed tomography (microCT). Now a research team led by the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has investigated how these agents disperse inside cells. Their findings could improve the assessment and further development of contrast agents and might contribute to future medical diagnostics.

Comparative study by TUM and DSW for 2021

DAX Managing Board members enjoy 24 percent income hike

In 2021 Managing Board members of companies listed on the German stock index DAX (Deutschen Aktienindex) earned an average of 24 percent more than they did in the previous year, according to the results of an annual comparative study conducted by the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and German investor protection advocate Deutsche Schutzvereinigung für Wertpapierbesitz (DSW).

TUM student Benedict Scheu talks about his experiences with taking module courses in philosophy at the HFPH

“A natural extension of my studies”

Since 2019, TUM students have had the opportunity to take courses at the Munich School of Philosophy (HFPH) and earn extra credits. This allows them to take a look at completely different disciplines and put the content of their studies into a broader perspective. For example, they deal in depth with ethical and philosophical issues that are of central importance for technological or economic contexts. Benedict Scheu has seized this opportunity. In the interview, he talks about his experiences.

Study shows molecular profile of 19th-century beer sample

Scientific analysis of Germany’s oldest beer

Researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have opened a sample of lager beer that was stored at constant room temperature for over 140 years. The beer, brewed in 1885, was analyzed in terms of its sensory properties and chemical composition. The results offer insights into technological aspects of historical brewing.

Flow velocity in the gut regulates nutrient absorption and bacterial growth

More than a gut feeling

The flow velocity in our digestive system directly determines how well nutrients are absorbed by the intestine and how many bacteria live inside it. This is the result of a new study by researchers from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization (MPI-DS). The researchers revealed the physics mechanisms of how the intestine can regulate itself to optimize nutrient absorption while limiting unwanted bacterial growth at the same time.

Lecture by Prof. Rupert Seidl in the TUM@Freising lecture series

Forest Dieback 2.0

Forest ecosystems are central to life on Earth. However, forest ecosystems worldwide are undergoing rapid transformation. Prof. Rupert Seidl, Professor of Ecosystem Dynamics and Forest Management in Mountain Landscapes at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), conducts research on the effects of global change on tree mortality and regeneration. As part of the TUM@Freising lecture series Prof. Seidl will highlight the development of tree mortality in Europe since the beginning of the “forest dieback” in the 1980s. On October 18 at 7:00 p.m. in the “Lindenkeller” in Freising he will present the causes and effects of the current excess mortality in the forests and give insight into possible future developments.

Weihenstephan Forum: Contributions to an Urban Green Infrastructure

Green fingers and colorful flowering strips

The loss of landscape structures and the associated decline of insects and other wildlife contribute to the biodiversity crisis. However, current environmental changes are not only leading to species declines but are also having negative impacts on ecosystem services, including those in cities. The upgrade of urban “green infrastructure” in many countries is considered to be able to contribute significantly to solutions. City landscape designs for plants, animals, and people will be discussed at the 15th Weihenstephan Forum on October 21. This hybrid event is being organized by the Department of Restoration Ecology at the Technical University of Munich (TUM).
