The Hagen-Smith Prize of Aerosol research goes 2014 to an international team with participation of TROPOS researchers for a summary paper about chemical characteristics of particulate matters in Europe. The team has been analysing data of 24 sites across the continent. One of these is the TROPOS research site in Melpitz near Leipzig. During the last 10 years these paper was cited around 400 times.
The selection has been made by an international committee of eminent scientists from six countries. „Your contributions are truly seminal and have been...09.12.2014 | Read more

Ralf Beyer and Peter Faubel are two of the twelve employees who have won the Siemens “Inventor of the Year 2014” award. Both are active in the field of railway technology and together have over 90 patents to their credit. Their clever ideas have spawned products that make the web-based maintenance of rail vehicles possible or which use wireless communication to optimize the power consumption of classification yards.

Physicist Tobias Kippenberg measures and manipulates oscillators that are tiny yet still visible to the naked eye. Their optical and mechanical properties are governed by the laws of quantum physics. In recognition of his innovative work he has been awarded the National Latsis Prize 2014.
The laws of quantum physics apply in general at very small scales, governing the behaviour of elementary particles or atoms. Tobias Kippenberg, professor at...02.12.2014 | Read more
Twenty-seven outstanding young researchers have received an SNSF Starting Grant. The funding level, duration and funding conditions are in line with those of the European Research Council (ERC). This transitional measure of the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) offered the Swiss research community an adequate substitute for ERC grants.
The SNSF set up Temporary Backup Schemes (TBS) in March 2014. They enabled excellent researchers working or planning to work at Swiss research institutions to...21.11.2014 | Read more

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.
When François Englert and Peter Higgs were awarded the 2013 Nobel Prize, a scientific breakthrough was honored that could hardly be more spectacular: born from...
Researchers capture 3-D structure of a molecular interaction that influences cancer, inflammation and HIV infection
Researchers at University of California, San Diego Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences and the Bridge Institute at the University of Southern...
A new program will make it easier to combine different modes of transport. Siemens is developing a service for predicting the availability of carsharing vehicles at a given location at specific times.
The forecasting tool will be incorporated into the integrated SiMobility Connect mobility platform, which links carsharing firms, public transport companies,...
Mobile phones and smart phones still haven‘t been adapted to the carrying habits of their users. That much is clear to anyone who has tried sitting down with a mobile phone in their back pocket: the displays of the innumerable phones and pods are rigid and do not yield to the anatomical forms adopted by the people carrying them. By now it is no longer any secret that the big players in the industry are working on flexible displays. Properties that suitable coatings offer in this respect will be demonstrated by the developments of the INM – Leibniz-Institute for New Materials on show nano tech 2015, Tokio, Japan.
For the nanoparticle inks, the researchers are using what are known as TCOs, or transparent conducting oxides. “We use the TCOs to produce nanoparticles with...
A new 'microcapsule' treatment delivery method developed by researchers at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) could reduce inflammation in cartilage affected by osteoarthritis and reverse damage to tissue. The research was funded by Arthritis Research UK and the AO Foundation.
A protein molecule called C-type natriuretic peptide (CNP), which occurs naturally in the body, is known to reduce inflammation and aid in the repair of...
