Lenses Made from Pure Gravity Help to Solve a Cosmic Contradiction
Sherry Suyu made headlines when she and her team came up with a third, independent measurement method for the Hubble constant. Their work helps solve one of the most hotly disputed questions in astrophysics.
Unlocking the Secrets of Long-lasting Success
Ancient adhesives made from materials found in nature have been holding together cathedrals for hundreds of years. Cordt Zollfrank investigates this long-forgotten knowledge with the aim to develop environmentally friendly adhesives.
The Best of Both Worlds
Friedrich Simmel and his team study how robotic systems can be created from molecules or cells. Future visions expect such systems to enter into application in robotics and medicine.
Climate Change in Your Backyard
The interdisciplinary collaborative research project BAYSICS strives to engage citizens across Bavaria in research into climate change. Annette Menzel initiated and coordinates the project.
Turning Algae into Lightweight Building Materials
Within the Green Carbon project, Thomas Brück developed a process to produce carbon fiber reinforced polymers based on algae.
Many Features, One Material, One Process
Moritz Mungenast investigates the potential of 3D-printed, multifunctional, recyclable facades. The result of his research are facades made from only a single material. The various functions are realized via dedicated geometries.
The Molecular Engineers
Johannes Barth, Willi Auwärter and Joachim Reichert are exploring new ways of producing functional units made from individual molecules.They are exploring novel avenues towards future nanoelectronics, photonics or catalysis applications.
Getting Everything Flowing Nicely
