Engineers from Bochum and Duisburg-Essen are developing a technology that is partly only known from films.
The origins of a tumour are relevant for correct treatment. Proteins provide a clue.
15 minutes – that was all the time Michael Senske had to impress the jury with his doctoral thesis. It was enough.
Cosmic radiation originates under the most extreme conditions that space has to offer. However, researchers do not know much about it yet. A new telescope facility is about to change that.
Telescopes used in gamma astronomy are extremely sensitive, as astrophysicist Julia Tjus knows from experience.
Buildings, streets and shops are not the only things that change over time, people do too. Their sense of identity changes as much as their urban perceptions and dreams.
Cities need electricity – but not continuously while it’s being generated by wind or sun. Engineers study ways of storing excess capacity in a sustainable manner.
RUB is becoming ever more popular among researchers from overseas. What the figures show in the ranking is confirmed by two researchers from the USA in an interview.
Wind power stations are partially controlled via mobile phone networks. This carries risks.
There is not much room in cells. The molecules are tightly packed. Does this influence their function? And do experiments have to take this influence into account?
Computer simulations and experiments with cells have yielded promising results.
Only a small number of highly respected researchers receive this honour.
For years, researchers had assumed that a highly unstable intermediate state had to exist in the reaction. No one was able to verify this. Until now.
Gaining these insights required a special method.
Quantum effects are rarely observed for heavy atoms. Now it’s been successful.
This mechanism could be a crucial step in the cellular degradation of pathogens.
The method developed by chemists from Bochum is as easy as varnishing a car door. It could make new catalysts operational in the industry.
In the EU, automotive diesel contains only seven per cent biodiesel. Conventional diesel engines cannot sustain more than that. Until now.
Chemically aggressive conditions prevail during the manufacture of hydrogen from water. This wears out the catalysts used. It would be practical if they were to regenerate themselves.
Chemistry in solution takes place everywhere, for instance in our bodies. Research in the Ruhr is pulling out all the stops to understand all the details of this.
