Physics and Astronomy

This area deals with the fundamental laws and building blocks of nature and how they interact, the properties and the behavior of matter, and research into space and time and their structures.

innovations-report provides in-depth reports and articles on subjects such as astrophysics, laser technologies, nuclear, quantum, particle and solid-state physics, nanotechnologies, planetary research and findings (Mars, Venus) and developments related to the Hubble Telescope.

High-power laser system for Additive Manufacturing

… and further new developments at Laser World of Photonics. At the Munich trade show, the Ferdinand-Braun-Institut will be exhibiting, among other things, a robotic arm with a novel direct…

Dying stars’ cocoons could be new source of gravitational waves

New simulations suggest, for the first time, that cocoons of debris around dying stars likely emit gravitational waves Cocoons form as a massive star sheds debris while collapsing into a…

Webb Space Telescope detects universe’s most distant complex organic molecules

Researchers have detected complex organic molecules in a galaxy more than 12 billion light-years away from Earth – the most distant galaxy in which these molecules are now known to…

Subtle signs of fluctuations in critical point search

Analysis of lightweight nuclei emerging from gold ion collisions offers insight into primordial matter phase changes. Physicists analyzing data from gold ion smashups at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC), a U.S….

Weigh a quasar’s galaxy with precision

A team of researchers from EPFL have found a way to use the phenomenon of strong gravitational lensing to determine with precision – about 3 times more precise than any…

Tiny quantum electronic vortexes

… can circulate in superconductors in ways not seen before. Within superconductors little tornadoes of electrons, known as quantum vortices, can occur which have important implications in superconducting applications such…
