Physicists at MPL and FAU develop novel concept for detecting chiral molecules In contrast to conventional mirrors, light can be reflected on surfaces known as meta surfaces without changing its polarization. This has now been proven by physicists at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnber...

How fast does a diode actually work? If it is operated under ideal conditions, it can be recharged up to 2 trillion times per second - until now, it has not been possible to go faster in conventional high-frequency circuits. Using a physical trick, a research team from Friedrich-Alexander-Universitä...

FAU scientist and H.E.S.S. team observe time-dependent particle acceleration outside our solar system for the first time Novae are powerful eruptions on the surface of a white dwarf in a binary star system, in which a larger star and a smaller star orbit each other. A nova creates a shock wave that...
