Travellers entering China from Kyrgyzstan have to install an app on their phones, as was unearthed by investigative journalists. IT experts from Bochum have analysed the application’s function.
The researcher integrates plant enzymes into sensors and fuel cells.
Precious metals are often efficient catalysts. But they are expensive and rare. However, it has so far been difficult to determine how efficient non-precious metal alternatives are.
Certain membrane proteins specialise in transporting molecules out of cells – a problem for the efficacy of cancer medication and antibiotics.
Acids tend to release a proton. However, they display more complex behaviour under space conditions.
About tiny samples and big research projects.
Tong Li routinely handles individual atoms as part of her work. She explains how and why on Twitter.
Good news for students pursuing a teaching degree: the Master of Education degrees at RUB are no longer subject to restrictions.
Precious metal nanoparticles of platinum and gold are excellent catalysts. But they are expensive and rare. This new method makes it possible to save material.
The planned research building has been awarded the highest rating by the the German Council of Science and Humanities.
Since they are so tiny, it is difficult to investigate single nanoparticles. However, this is exactly what researchers are aiming for in order to tailor their properties. For that purpose, they came up with a trick.
The causes of the disease are for the most part obscure. Researchers intend to expose them using cerebral organoids grown from stem cells.
The key to a long life for bioelectrodes lies in an oxygen-free environment.
When the fear of spiders or heights gets so extreme that it interferes with everyday life, it makes sense to undergo cognitive-behavioural therapy. The approach works quite well, and it could become even more efficient.
Applying technology developed in-house, IT security experts from Bochum have identified hundreds of bugs in critical software, including operating systems such as Windows and Linux. Clouds, too, are affected.
Corvids are incredibly clever. But they are not always the easiest birds to handle.
The network aims to raise the international visibility and facilitates networking with female researchers.
Why we should never forget to resurface after virtual submersion in the past.
Students attending Antje Klinge’s courses don’t learn sport in the traditional sense of the word. Rather, they learn a lot about themselves.
In engineering sciences, the first semesters in particular are tough for students. The dropout rates are high. Still, this might yet change.
