In interdisciplinary cooperation, a Bochum-based research team has made a discovery that could lead to more environmental protection in the chemical industry.
A Bochum-based team has developed a new process for zinc oxide layers that can be used for nitrogen oxide sensors as well as protection layer on plastic.
“Alexa,” “Hey Siri,” “OK Google” – voice assistants are supposed to react to these triggers. But other words activate them, too.
Studied in detail, the embedding of hydrophobic molecules in water looks quite different than previously assumed.
If the parents have a degree, their children also believe that they have to get one. This can put them under pressure.
Researchers have experimentally proven the theoretically predicted Auger effect in quantum dots. The findings help to understand the structures that form the basis of quantum communication.
Infrared microscopy can automatically detect the type of intestinal tumour within only 30 minutes. These results are then used to make targeted therapy decisions.
Every cell contains thousands of different RNA molecules. In the past, it would have taken many research careers to decipher their structures using traditional methods. But not anymore.
Chimpanzees, some dog species and even scrub jay and crows have beliefs. Philosophers from Bochum have been debating how to define the term.
An algorithm developed by neuroinformatics engineers in Bochum estimates age and ethnic origin as exactly as humans do. The researchers are not yet sure which features it interprets.
On surfaces, the virus remains contagious for the same time at both, hot and cold temperatures.
Searching for small but stable cobalt compounds, a team has discovered a complex that is relevant for material research and exhibits properties that have not been reported for almost 50 years for a compound alike.
By combining light-collecting and photosynthesis proteins of different types, more energy can be produced.
A Bochum-based team intends to use organoids from stem cells to study the progression of Sars-CoV-2 infection and to identify antiviral substances.
Bar Kribus, researcher in Bochum, investigates the mostly uncharted remains of Early Modern Jewish culture of the Beta Israel in Ethiopia.
Microorganisms produce substances capable of binding metals from the environment. Their blueprints might be worth copying.
The human immune system is reactive to more than just the viral protein on which researchers have focused to date. This is relevant for tests and potential vaccines.
Scientists from the Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung and the Ruhr-Universität Bochum publish their recent findings in Nature Materials.
Visual illusion uncovers processing strategies of the brain.
The computer attack with an encryption software has mainly affected the university administration. The search for the attackers and any damage continues.
