The medical researcher and EPFL professor Andrea Ablasser studies how cells defend themselves against viral and bacterial attacks. She receives the National Latsis Prize 2018 in recognition of her excellent research work on immunity.
In contrast to acquired immunity and its targeted, but slow, production of antibodies against specific pathogens, innate immunity reacts immediately: by means...01.11.2018 | Read more
When bones break more easily in old age, osteoporosis is often to blame. However, the cause of the disease and how it develops is not yet sufficiently understood. An interdisciplinary team of scientists at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) and the Helmholtz Zentrum für Materialien und Energie in Berlin (HZB) is now developing a new imaging process to solve this problem and facilitate successful treatment more quickly. The aim of the new process is to enable x-ray microscopy to be carried out on living subjects. The European Research Council (ERC) is funding the project with an ERC Synergy Grant worth 12.3 million euros.
With life expectancy on the rise throughout the world, there has been a corresponding rise in the number of patients who suffer from osteoporosis. 27 million...31.10.2018 | Read more

The German national Excellence Strategy has decided which new Clusters of Excellence will be funded from 2019 onwards. On September 27, 2018, the selection of 57 research alliances as Clusters of Excellence was announced. These winners were chosen from 88 full proposals and 195 original applications. The Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems (MPI-IS) was involved in four applications, all of which were selected for funding as Clusters of Excellence. In Stuttgart, MPI-IS scientists were directly involved in both of the successful proposals at the University of Stuttgart. In Tübingen, MPI-IS is involved in two of the University of Tübingen's three approved clusters.
The Stuttgart Cluster of Excellence, "Integrative Computational Design and Construction for Architecture" (ICDCA) highlights strong research areas at the...08.10.2018 | Read more
Quantum technologies serve as a basis for extremely fast computers and for absolutely secure data transmission. Less known is that these novel technologies can also be used to perform complete computations on a remote quantum server without having to divulge any information about the data or the calculations themselves. Such innovative applications are the topic of the project "Silicon photonics in secure quantum networks – SiSiQ", led by Prof. Stefanie Barz at the Institute of Functional Matter and Quantum Technologies of the University of Stuttgart. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research is now funding the project within the "Quantum Futur" framework with 3.6 million Euros.
Digitization and networking are the basis of modern society. Nowadays, not only are IT applications outsourced to the ‘Cloud’, but also real objects are linked...12.09.2018 | Read more
Dr. Guido Montúfar, research group leader at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences Leipzig, has been awarded an ERC Starting Grant for excellent young researchers. The European Research Council ERC is supporting his new group on deep learning theory, which focuses on improving learning in neural networks, with an amount of 1.5 million euro.
Deep Learning is one of the most vibrant areas of contemporary machine learning and one of the most promising approaches to Artificial Intelligence. This...15.08.2018 | Read more

Scientists at the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT have come up with a striking new addition to contact stamping technologies in the ERDF research project ScanCut. In collaboration with industry partners from North Rhine-Westphalia, the Aachen-based team of researchers developed a hybrid manufacturing process for the laser cutting of thin-walled metal strips. This new process makes it possible to fabricate even the tiniest details of contact parts in an eco-friendly, high-precision and efficient manner.
Plug connectors are tiny and, at first glance, unremarkable – yet modern vehicles would be unable to function without them. Several thousand plug connectors...
An international research team has found a new approach that may be able to reduce bone loss in osteoporosis and maintain bone health.
Osteoporosis is the most common age-related bone disease which affects hundreds of millions of individuals worldwide. It is estimated that one in three women...

“Core-shell” clusters pave the way for new efficient nanomaterials that make catalysts, magnetic and laser sensors or measuring devices for detecting electromagnetic radiation more efficient.
Whether in innovative high-tech materials, more powerful computer chips, pharmaceuticals or in the field of renewable energies, nanoparticles – smallest...
An international research team with Prof. Cornelia Denz from the Institute of Applied Physics at the University of Münster develop for the first time light fields using caustics that do not change during propagation. With the new method, the physicists cleverly exploit light structures that can be seen in rainbows or when light is transmitted through drinking glasses.
Modern applications as high resolution microsopy or micro- or nanoscale material processing require customized laser beams that do not change during...
