Enabling the development of electro-optical devices

Enabling the development of electro-optical devices
A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules. The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes.

Tracking live brain activity with NeuBtracker

Tracking live brain activity with NeuBtracker
A team of scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum München and the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has successfully developed a new type of microscope. The so-called NeuBtracker is an open source microscope that allows to observe neuronal activities of zebrafish without perturbing their behaviour. This is opening up completely new perspectives for science, because now it will be possible to track natural behaviour while simultaneously imaging neuronal activity in the brain.

Capturing the 3D world with a handheld camera

Capturing the 3D world with a handheld camera
Imagine if you could use your smartphone to take pictures of static and moving objects and “re-construct” the real world into a 3D image – almost instantaneously. Instead of the usual 2D photos snapped inside Rome’s Sistine Chapel, you’d be able to create an immersive 3D tourism experience to share with friends. A plastic surgeon could use the technology to measure the progress of rebuilding a nose in real time during an operation.

Optical fibre transmits one terabit per second

Optical fibre transmits one terabit per second
  Nokia Bell Labs, Deutsche Telekom T-Labs and the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have achieved unprecedented transmission capacity and spectral efficiency in an optical communications field trial with a modulation technique. The breakthrough research could extend the capability of optical networks to meet surging data traffic demands.

Light waves might be able to drive future transistors

Light waves might be able to drive future transistors
  The electromagnetic waves of light oscillate approximately one million times in a billionth of a second, hence at petahertz frequencies. In principle, future electronics could reach this speed and become 100,000 times faster than current digital electronics.

Molecular architectures see the light

Molecular architectures see the light
Organic photovoltaics bear great potential for large-scale, cost-effective solar power generation. One challenge to be surmounted is the poor ordering of the thin layers on top of the electrodes. Utilising self-assembly on atomically flat, transparent substrates, a team of scientists at the TUM has engineered ordered monolayers of molecular networks with photovoltaic responses. The findings open up intriguing possibilities for the bottom-up fabrication of optoelectronic devices with molecular precision.

Silicon chip features an integrated laser

Physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have developed a nanolaser, a thousand times thinner than a human hair. Thanks to an ingenious process, the nanowire lasers grow right on a silicon chip, making it possible to produce high-performance photonic components cost-effectively. This will pave the way for fast and efficient data processing with light in the future.
