Internationales Symposium zur materialwissenschaftlichen Elektronenmikroskopie

18. September 2023
Eintauchen in die Welt der Atome zweidimensionaler (2D) Materialien: Darum geht es beim SALVE 2D23 Symposium, das vom 25. bis zum 28. September 2023 an der Universität Ulm stattfindet. Es ist das fünfte Symposium seiner Art, zu dem sich führende Expertinnen und Experten der Transmissionselektronenmikroskopie und Materialforschung wieder aus der ganzen Welt versammeln. Einen Ehrenplatz hat dabei das Ulmer Supermikroskop SALVE. Besonders im Fokus steht bei der viertägigen internationalen Konferenz die Erforschung von sogenannten 2D-Materialien.

Quantum technology for cancer imaging

BMBF funds Ulm researchers with 4.2 million euros

08.12.2022: The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is now funding a highly innovative project to revolutionize the imaging of tumors using quantum technology with 15.8 million euros. Within the funded consortium of three university hospitals, two universities and industrial partners, 4.2 million euros in funding will go to the University Hospital and the University of Ulm. ...more

New model of gene transcription developed - Unprecedented insights into the temporal sequence of genetic selection

30.06.2021: The reading out of genetic information is one of the most important processes in body cells. If errors occur during the so-called gene transcription and the resulting protein production, cancer diseases as well as metabolic and developmental disorders can arise. In order to develop new drugs or therapies for such diseases, it is therefore important to have a precise knowledge of the molecular processes inside the cell ...more

In single file, please! At the ultimate limit of miniaturization electrons are transported one at a time

16.12.2020: Despite plenty of room at the bottom, there is a limit to the miniaturization of every process. Finding these limits has been a priority goal for a long time. An international collaboration of scientists between the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research in Stuttgart, Ulm University and the Autonomous University of Madrid has now found a minimal configuration for producing an electronic current.  ...more
