The quantum refrigerator

Computer simulations show how quantum fields could be used to break low-temperature records

30-Jul-2021

At first glance, heat and cold don't have much to do with quantum physics. A single atom is neither hot nor cold. Temperature can only be defined for objects that consist of many particles. But at TU Wien, in collaboration with Freie Universität Berlin, Nanyang Technological University in ...

Electrons in quantum liquid gain energy from laser pulses

The findings open new doors for ultra-fast electron microscopy

14-Jul-2021

The absorption of energy from laser light by free electrons in a liquid has been demonstrated for the first time. Until now, this process was observed only in the gas phase. The findings, led by Graz University of Technology, open new doors for ultra-fast electron microscopy. The investigation ...

Human environmental genome recovered in the absence of skeletal remains

Innovative approach permits the identification of DNA in samples of environmental material

14-Jul-2021

Ancient sediments from caves have already proven to preserve DNA for thousands of years. The amount of recovered sequences from environmental sediments, however, is generally low, which difficults the analyses to be performed with these sequences. A study led by Ron Pinhasi and Pere Gelabert of ...

The bitumen puzzle

Mix of methods provides new info

07-Jul-2021

Although the history of bitumen dates back to the third millennium BC, only little is known about its surface structure. Researchers from TU Wien are now shedding light on the nature of the bitumen surface using physicochemical analyses. While atomic force microscopy and scanning electron ...

Scientists develop “scifi-RNA-seq” method for ultra-high-throughput RNA sequencing in single cells

An efficient high-throughput method with a wide range of applications

02-Jun-2021

Molecular analysis of single cells provides an important basis for precision medicine. Five years ago, scientists around the world came together to pursue the “Human Cell Atlas” project, with the aim of cataloging all cells in the human body. These data have helped, for example, to identify those ...

Crystalline supermirrors for trace gas detection in environmental science and medicine

Analysis of particularly complex gas mixtures with unprecedented accuracy

25-May-2021

In an international cooperation with partners from industry and research, physicists from the University of Vienna, together with Thorlabs, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and the University of Kansas, have now succeeded for the first time in demonstrating ...

How acidic are atoms?

Precisely understand and improve chemical properties of surfaces

30-Apr-2021

The acidity of molecules can be easily determined, but until now it was not possible to measure this important property for atoms on a surface. With a new microscopy technique from the Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien), this has now been achieved. The degree of acidity or alkalinity of a ...

The body as a network

A new VR platform enables the display of huge amounts of data. This can be helpful in the study of rare genetic defects, among other things

27-Apr-2021

Networks offer a powerful way to visualize and analyze complex systems. However, depending on the size and complexity of the network, many visualizations are limited. Protein interactions in the human body constitute such a complex system that can hardly be visualized. Jörg Menche, Adjunct ...

The indestructible light beam

Researchers create special light waves that can penetrate even opaque materials as if the material was not even there

14-Apr-2021

Why is sugar not transparent? Because light that penetrates a piece of sugar is scattered, altered and deflected in a highly complicated way. However, as a research team from TU Wien (Vienna) and Utrecht University (Netherlands) has now been able to show, there is a class of very special light ...

Electromagnetic Fields of Nanostructures Visualized in 3D for the First Time

30-Mar-2021

Researchers at Graz University of Technology (TU Graz) and the University of Graz, together with experts from France, have succeeded in imaging so-called surface phonons in three dimensions for the first time. The research success could accelerate the development of new, efficient ...
