Looking deeper into the quantum world

Researchers have experimentally demonstrated that interferometers, the most sensitive measuring instruments yet invented, can be improved using nonlinear physics. The result answers a fundamental question in quantum mechanics and could open the way to more sensitive detection of magnetic fields in delicate systems such as the human heart.

Chemical sensor on a chip

They are invisible, but perfectly suited for analysing liquids and gases; infrared laser beams are absorbed differently by different molecules. This effect can for instance be used to measure the oxygen concentration in blood. This technique has now been miniaturized and implemented in the prototype for a new kind of sensor.

New nanocomposite protects from corrosion at high mechanical stress

Material researchers present a composite material which prevents metal corrosion in an environmentally friendly way, even under extreme conditions. It can be used wherever metals are exposed to severe weather conditions, aggressive gases, media containing salt, heavy wear or high pressures.

Einmaliger Einblick ins Molekül

Prozesse, die auf atomarer Grössenskala ablaufen, lassen sich nur mit den Gesetzen der Quantenmechanik genau beschreiben. Physikern der Universität Würzburg ist es jetzt erstmals experimentell gelungen, den Zustand eines solchen quantenmechanischen Systems vollständig zu erfassen.
