Longer satellites lifetime, less space junk
Longer satellites lifetime, less space junk
Earth observation satellites for very low altitudes, smaller, lighter, and cheaper than conventional models: These are the goals of the EU project "DISCOVERER", in which nine partners from Europe and the US are involved. For the first time, the new inductive plasma thruster (IPT) was ignited at the Institute of Space Systems (IRS) of the University of Stuttgart.

Images from the inside of blood vessels
Researchers of the Universities of Stuttgart and Adelaide in cooperation with medical research centers in Australia developed a special microoptical tool with a thickness of only 125 microns. This enables endoscopic examimations within blood vessels whose diameter is smaller than 0.5 mm and helps detecting plaques or thrombs to reduce the danger of a stroke or a heart attack.

Mystery of solar cycle illuminated
Mystery of solar cycle illuminated
In the convection zone of the star, the plasma currents make a huge turnover that lasts about 22 years (mps) Solar activity fluctuates in a rhythm of about eleven years, which is reflected among other things in the frequency of sunspots. A complete magnetic period lasts 22 years. Scientists have long been puzzling over what causes this cycle.

Voltage- and time-dependent valence state transition in cobalt oxide catalysts during the oxygen evolution reaction
The oxygen evolution reaction (OER) is the rate-limiting step for renewable-energy technologies, such as direct solar, water splitting, rechargeable metal-air batteries and regenerative fuel cells to meet the requirement of rapidly increasing global energy demand.

From the Little Brother of Benzene to Deltic Liquid Crystals
From the Little Brother of Benzene to Deltic Liquid Crystals
Cyclopropenium cations are aromatic three-membered rings and belong to Hückel type aromatic systems. Thus, they are the smaller brothers of the well-known benzene. In contrast to benzene cyclopropenium cations were considered for a long time as curiosities without any practical relevance. However, in recent years their potential as organocatalysts has been recognized.

Playing with the wonder materials
Playing with the wonder materials
The diameter of a hair, but a hundred thousand times thinner - the products made by Dr. Ashish Arora and his colleagues in the laboratories of the Institute of Physics are difficult to imagine for outsiders. The materials they deal with on a daily basis hold a world record because they consist of a single layer of atoms, the smallest building blocks of nature.
