The German Research Association (DFG) has granted the University of Stuttgart the right to continue the transregional special research field 75 (SFB-TRR 75) on the topic of “droplet dynamic processes under extreme environmental conditions“.

In this Transregio Stuttgart researchers cooperate with the Technical University of Darmstadt and the German Aerospace Centre (DLR) in Lampoldshausen. The spokesperson is Prof. Bernhard Weigand from the Institute for Thermodynamics of the Aerospace Centre at the University of Stuttgart. The financing for 2014 is 2.2 million Euros and 1.7 million Euros respectively for each of the following three years.
With the extension two new projects and one to date associated project will also be included in the funding. With this the Transregio will be able to increase its profile in the field of numeric fundamentals as well as in the numeric and experimental investigation of flash boiling processes in rocket combustion chambers. In the assessment of the special research field September 2013, the experts were able to assess the excellent cooperation of the scientists at the three involved locations.
All on-going and new part projects convinced the experts with their quality. Therefore, no projects will be cancelled after the first phase of the SFB-TRR 75 but three will be added. The decision was made on 21st November at the selection meeting in Bonn at which the experts made their selections to fund 32 applications from a total of 39 nationwide applications.
Prof. Wolfram Ressel, Rector of the University of Stuttgart, thanked all those involved in the transregional research field for their successful commitment and underlined: “The DFG decision confirms once again the internationally high level of basic research in the field of aerospace at the University of Stuttgart. This success strengthens our hope of being able to establish a further special research field at our university.“Droplets in nature and technology

A team led by Austrian experimental physicist Rainer Blatt has succeeded in characterizing the quantum entanglement of two spatially separated atoms by observing their light emission. This fundamental demonstration could lead to the development of highly sensitive optical gradiometers for the precise measurement of the gravitational field or the earth's magnetic field.
The age of quantum technology has long been heralded. Decades of research into the quantum world have led to the development of methods that make it possible...

A team of scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg investigated optically-induced superconductivity in the alkali-doped fulleride K3C60under high external pressures. This study allowed, on one hand, to uniquely assess the nature of the transient state as a superconducting phase. In addition, it unveiled the possibility to induce superconductivity in K3C60 at temperatures far above the -170 degrees Celsius hypothesized previously, and rather all the way to room temperature. The paper by Cantaluppi et al has been published in Nature Physics.
Unlike ordinary metals, superconductors have the unique capability of transporting electrical currents without any loss. Nowadays, their technological...
