International Students can get detailed information about study and research opportunities in Germany on a new website now: recently the DAAD expanded its Internet services with the launch of http://www.study-in.de.
Designed as a modern and user-friendly website, it has a large selection of offers in German and English. It features an arsenal of Web 2.0 tools, such as an interactive map of Germany in which users can virtually "travel" to Berlin, a search engine for finding the right master's degree programme and the DAADblog where foreign students can post their impressions and experiences in Germany.Users can also find answers to the most commonly asked questions about life and university study in Germany in ten video clips titled "Student Life", created in cooperation with the University of Mittweida and posted on the DAAD YouTube-channel. For those looking for a more personal contact, the DAAD Fair Ticker informs users about upcoming educational fairs in Germany and abroad. Study-in.de features a clearly-structured, straightforward design.
In addition to basic information about study-related issues, the website strongly focuses on life in Germany in general and gives deeper insights into German day-to-day life. In order to facilitate the start for international students, the DAAD set up a profile on Germany's largest social network "StudiVZ", where they can establish contacts to German students at their hosting university before arriving in Germany.
Study-in.de is financed by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and is closely linked with the "Information for Foreigners" section on http://www.daad.de, which registers more than three million page views per month. Furthermore, study-in.de cooperates with the German Rector's Conference (HRK) for its degree programme search tool. Study-in.de is the website of the "Study in Germany - Land of Ideas" campaign, whose goal is to raise public awareness of Germany as a country of academic excellence and attract more highly qualified foreign students to German universities.Contact:

The Institute of Semiconductor Technology and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, both members of the Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology (LENA), at Technische Universität Braunschweig are partners in a new European research project entitled ChipScope, which aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.
To demonstrate the usefulness of this new scientific tool, at the end of the project the developed chip-sized microscope will be used to observe in real-time...
Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.
The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.
Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...
Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.
Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.
