Consortium from Erlangen receives roughly 3 million euros from the Free State of Bavaria In recognition of our outstanding expertise in quantum research: a consortium consisting of eleven researchers from Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) will receive roughly three million eur...

Start of new ARIADNE programme rounds: Female students and young scientists from the Faculty of Engineering and the Faculty of Sciences can now apply for admission to a new round of the career mentoring programme ARIADNETechNat. The two qualification-specific programme lines will start in parallel i...

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...

Physicist Prof. Dirk Englund has been selected for the most prestigious international research prize in Germany It is the ninth Humboldt Professorship for Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) and the sixth in a row for the University: physicist Prof. Dirk Englund has been selecte...

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...

On the occasion of this year’s APS March Meeting and the DPG Spring Meetings, QuCoLiMa partnered with APS-TV to produce a 6 minute film about the research within QuCoLiMa. The overall message of the film is to convey the central idea of "Quantum Cooperativity of Light and Matter" and how this topic ...

Consortium publishes the first X-ray data from eROSITA The German eROSITA consortium, including researchers from FAU, has released the first set of data taken by the eROSITA X-ray telescope, which can scan the entire sky in the X-ray range. Researchers across the globe can now access data from the ...

The Department of Physics at FAU is involved in the FAIRmat project, which was selected on Friday, July 2, 2021 by the Joint Science Conference (Gemeinsame Wissenschaftskonferenz - GWK) in a multi-stage competition of the National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI). The project will receive funding...

Organisms of varied size rely on different techniques to swim efficiently. The macroscopic world comprising of land and aquatic mammals, as well as bacteria and sperms in the microscopic realm have been investigated extensively for their swimming dynamics. However, the dynamics of organisms in-betwe...

The kick-off meeting of the Collaborative Research Center/Transregio TRR 306 "QuCoLiMa" (Quantum Cooperativity of Light and Matter) took place digitally on Friday, March 19, 2021. The TRR 306 QuCoLiMa was established beginning of this year, together with the Max Planck Institute for the Science of ...
