Moving Components in Miniature
Moving Components in Miniature
Electromagnetic engines can't be reduced to just any size. It takes clever engineering tricks to generate active movement in miniature format. Researchers in Bochum are constantly coming up with new technologies. Over the years, a great many technical components have been shrunk in size. But miniaturization reaches its limits when tiny systems are supposed to move actively, because conventional electromagnetic motors become inefficient when reduced to miniature format.

Quantum Precision: A New Kind of Resistor
Quantum Precision: A New Kind of Resistor
Researchers at the University of Würzburg have developed a method that can improve the performance of quantum resistance standards. It's based on a quantum phenomenon called Quantum Anomalous Hall effect. The precise measurement of electrical resistance is essential in industrial production or electronics - for example, in the manufacture of high-tech sensors, microchips and flight controls.

Progress in Quantum Physics: Researchers Tame Superconductors
Progress in Quantum Physics: Researchers Tame Superconductors
An international team including researchers from the University of Würzburg has succeeded in creating a special state of superconductivity. This discovery could advance the development of quantum computers. Superconductors are materials that can conduct electricity without electrical resistance - making them the ideal base material for electronic components in MRI machines, magnetic levitation trains and even particle accelerators.

3D-printed pneumatic modules replace electric controls in soft robots
3D-printed pneumatic modules replace electric controls in soft robots
Research team at the University of Freiburg develops 3D-printed pneumatic logic modules that control the movements of soft robots using only air pressure In the future, soft robots will be able to perform tasks that cannot be done by conventional robots. These soft robots could be used in terrain that is difficult to access and in environments where they are exposed to chemicals or radiation that would harm electronically controlled robots made of metal.
