Closing the gap: On the road to terahertz electronics
Research news A team headed by the TUM physicists Alexander Holleitner and Reinhard Kienberger has succeeded for the first time in generating ultrashort electric pulses on a chip using metal antennas only a few nanometers in size, then running the signals a few millimeters above the surface and reading them in again a controlled manner.

Research news Pacemakers and defibrillators are often implanted in patients with heart failure or cardiac arrhythmias to regulate heart function. These devices are susceptible to electromagnetic interference, which can potentially occur in electric cars. In a recent study, however, a team led by Dr. Carsten Lennerz, a cardiologist at the German Heart Centre Munich and scientist at the German Centre for Cardiovascular Research (DZHK), concludes that current electric cars pose no threat to patients.

Virtual contact lenses for radar satellites
Research news Radar satellites supply the data used to map sea level and ocean currents. However, up until now the radar's "eyes" have been blind where the oceans are covered by ice. Researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have now developed a new analysis method to solve this problem.

Electrical steel: Strong magnetic fields due to sharp tools
Electrical steel: Strong magnetic fields due to sharp tools
Research news In an electric drive, magnetic fields have to be created in order to transform electric energy into kinetic energy. The magnetic properties of the motor's main components, referred to as electrical steel sheets, are the decisive factor in the efficiency of the electric motor. Scientists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have investigated the way these steel sheets are processed and have concluded that using blunt cutting tools deteriorates the magnetic properties of the steel sheets significantly.
