Microdrones, significantly smaller than red blood cells, can be controlled with light-driven nanomotors

An important step on the road to topological quantum computers

In collaboration with researchers from Harvard University, researchers from the University of Würzburg have made an important step on the road to topological quantum computers. Now, they present their findings in the renowned scientific journal Nature. Majorana particles are very peculiar members of the family of elementary particles. First predicted in 1937 by the Italian

Are people more reserved about robots than they were five years ago?

In Europe, people are more reserved regarding robots than they were five years ago. This is shown in a new study published by scientists from Linz and Würzburg. Robots performing in surgeries, robots in automobile production, and robots in caregiving. In some areas, the machines are already well-established, in others they are on the rise.

Viruses may be the driving force behind a range of neurological and psychiatric conditions such as depression and bipolar disorder

According to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), 4.4 percent of the population of the United States will have bipolar disorder at one point in their lives. Another 16.2 million, or around 6.7 percent of all U.S. adults, will experience at least one episode of severe depression in their lives. While the precise causes of such, often debilitating, psychiatric conditions remain

Artificial photosynthesis with the help of an all-in-one catalytic system for the first time

Solar-powered water splitting is a promising means of generating clean and storable energy. A novel catalyst based on semiconductor nanoparticles has now been shown to facilitate all the reactions needed for “artificial photosynthesis”. In the light of global climate change, there is an urgent need to develop efficient ways of obtaining and storing power from

A new technology for enzyme design means new opportunities

Chemists have modified the enzyme levansucrase using a new method. The enzyme can now produce sugar polymers that are exciting for applications in the food industry and medicine. Enzymes are tools of nature that accelerate almost all biochemical reactions in living cells as biological catalysts. For this reason, enzymes have been used in the chemical

DNA scissors can also readily target RNA – a result with potentially far-reaching ramifications

The bacterial immune system “CRISPR-Cas9” is known to eliminate invading DNA. Würzburg scientists now discovered that it can also readily target RNA – a result with potentially far-reaching ramifications. Our ability to change the content of genes at will—whether to reverse genetic diseases or improve food and energy crops—is undergoing a revolution. This revolution is

A new field of nano-optics: Controlling the coupling of light and matter at room temperature

Researchers from Würzburg and London have built the foundations for a new field of nano-optics: they have succeeded in controlling the coupling of light and matter at room temperature. Publishing in a journal like Science Advances usually heralds a particularly exciting innovation. Now, physicists from the Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg (JMU) in Germany and Imperial College London

Serious breakthrough in spintronics

It’s ultra-thin, electrically conducting at the edge and highly insulating within – and all that at room temperature: Physicists from the University of Würzburg have developed a promising new material. The material class of topological insulators is presently the focus of international solids research. These materials are electrically insulating within, because the electrons maintain strong

The world’s first wireless satellite

A satellite whose components are not connected through electric cables but miniaturised radio modules: This innovation has earned two computer scientists from the University of Würzburg the first place in the INNOspace Masters competition. Professor Sergio Montenegro and his fellow researcher Tobias Mikschl have reason to be happy: A few days ago, the two computer
