  • Thermoelectricity at nanocontactsSeptember 3, 2019
    Thermoelectricity is a physical phenomenon that describes how temperature differences within a solid produce electrical voltages. An illustrative application of this would be, for example, charging a wristwatch by exploiting the temperature difference between wrist and environment. Matthias Popp and Prof. Heiko Weber from the Chair of Applied Physics have...
  • Computer programs for a celestial eyeJune 18, 2019
    On 21 June, 14:17 Central European Summer Time, when a Proton M rocket launches in the Russian space port of Baikonur to bring the eROSITA X-ray telescope into space on board the SRG satellite, a piece of FAU know-how will also be on board. Astronomers from the Dr. Karl Remeis...
  • Higgs particle in condensed matterApril 3, 2019
    Recently published experiments with inelastic neutron scattering in Nature Physics (Nature Physics 13, 638 (2017)) have identified the amplitude or Higgs excitation in the two-dimensional quantum magnet C9H18N2CuBr4, i.e. a quantum material of coupled spin ladders with weak Easy-Axis spin anisotropy. Motivated by these data, researchers from the RWTH Aachen,...
