Aurora Uni­ver­si­ties sup­port part­ner uni­ver­sity in Ukraine

The universities of the Europe-wide Aurora University Network are currently meeting in Innsbruck. The rector of Karasin University Kharkiv is also a guest - she reported on the situation in her city and was presented with 51,000 euros in financial support for her university.

Alpine sustaina­bi­lity at moun­tain huts

The Munich Section of the German Alpine Club and the Department of Geography at the University of Innsbruck have successfully completed their project "Alpine Sustainability at Huts - ANAH". This was the first time that the interrelationships of various factors in the management of alpine bases were scientifically investigated with methods for measuring the indicators.

Graphene structure

Glimpse inside a gra­phene sand­wich

In the search for novel types of superconductors – phases of matter that that conduct electric current without loss – scientists are investigating materials that consist of multiple layers. A team led by Mathias Scheurer from the University of Innsbruck has studied in detail the properties of a system of three twisted graphene layers and gained important insights into its properties.

War in Ukrai­ne: Uni Inn­bruck helps

The University of Innsbruck is dismayed by the war in Ukraine. A crisis team has been set up to deal with the situation and is working on concrete steps to support cooperation partners

Nano particles trapped between mirrors

Mi­cro­ca­vi­ties as a sen­sor plat­form

Sensors are a pillar of the Internet of Things, providing the data to control all sorts of objects. Here, precision is essential, and this is where quantum technologies could make a difference. Researchers in Innsbruck and Zurich are now demonstrating how nanoparticles in tiny optical resonators can be transferred into quantum regime and used as high-precision sensors.

Talks about an Aurora Joint Mas­ter Pro­gram

A delegation of VU Amsterdam recently visited Universität Innsbruck as part of the ongoing activities within the Aurora European University Alliance. Jaap Gordijn, Anna Bon and Hans Akkermans are leading the Pilot Domain „Digital Society and Global Society“, one of the Aurora platforms for educational cooperation, to discuss a potentially new joint master program in this field.

Physicists report on first programmable quantum sensor.

Quan­tum sen­sors: Mea­sur­ing even more pre­cisely

Two teams of physicists led by Peter Zoller and Thomas Monz have designed the first programmable quantum sensor, and tested it in the laboratory. To do so they applied techniques from quantum information processing to a measurement problem. The innovative method promises quantum sensors whose precision reaches close to the limit set by the laws of nature.

Die Wissenschaftler*innen entdeckten Spektrallinien, die zuvor von Theorie-Kollegen in Paris und Bordeaux vorhergesagt wurden.

A look in­side a mol­e­cule

Even the simplest molecular bonds are not fully understood yet. Researchers around the group of physicist Roland Wester from the Institute of Ion Physics and Applied Physics have now studied how negative ions bind to hydrogen molecules – the simplest molecules there are. Together with partners from theory the team has found a precise quantum mechanical description for this process.
