Magnetismus Supraleiter Shedding light on cold Higgs

For the first time physicists at the University of Stuttgart provide experimental proof of a stable and well-defined Higgs mode in superconductors – a direct analog to the Higgs particle, discovered only recently at the world´s largest particle accelerator, the Large Hadron Collider at the CERN – however, using not more than a table-top experiment.

Little Box Challenge ILEA ILH Power Electronics Institutes of the University of Stuttgart win the „Little Box Challenge Academic Award“

With the „Little Box Challenge“ Google and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) called for the development of an extremely compact inverter with a power density of at least 3 watt per cubic centimeter. A prize of one million US dollar will be awarded to the winners of this competition. Already, the ten best concepts worldwide have been awarded a funding of 30.000 US dollar. The joint team of the Institute of Robust Power Semiconductor Systems (ILH) and the Institute of Power Electronics and Electrical Drives (ILEA) of the University of Stuttgart has secured this prize.

Highspeed Satellitenfunk For the first time 15 gigabit/second over a distance of 15 kilometres

Scientists from the University of Stuttgart have succeeded in transmitting a data rate of 15 gigabit per second (Gbit/s) with a microwave radio link in the so-called E-band over a distance of more than 15 kilometres. This corresponds to three times the data rate and distance compared to today’s state of the art. The transmission was even possible in fog and light rain. Such microwave radio links could be used for the next generation of satellite communication where large amounts of data have to be brought from the satellite through the earth’s atmosphere to the ground station. The same frequency range, however, is also permitted for the terrestrial data transmission and is currently experiencing a global upswing. Mehr...

Pantoffeltierchen How Paramecium protozoa claw their way to the top

The ability to swim upwards – towards the sun and food supplies – is vital for many aquatic microorganisms. Exactly how they are able to differentiate between above and below in often murky waters is still not understood today. An extremely simple trick of physics involving the self-organised balancing of two forces could offer a reliable and effective explanation of this phenomenon. This has been demonstrated by an international research team headed by Clemens Bechinger from the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems and the University of Stuttgart. Mehr...
