  • 07.09.2020 Engineering for Smart Manufacturing (E4SM): Engineering of assistance systems based on machine learning for data-intensive industrial scenarios

    A basic idea of Industry 4.0 is to utilize data of all areas of a production process in an integrated way. The acquired extensive data enables completely new applications for machine learning and artificial intelligence techniques, which can be utilized to achieve considerable increases in efficiency by using assistance systems.

  • 16.07.2020 Electric voltage from quantum mechanical electron spin - battery of the future?

    Spintronics as a rapidly thriving branch of nanoelectronics deals with the intrinsic angular momentum of electrons - their electron spin (in short spin) – that can give rise to a variety of novel and fascinating phenomena. We all already unknowingly use the results of this subfield of modern physics with the latest generation of memories installed in our laptops and mobile phones. Indeed, today's density of data would be impossible to handle without the giant magnetoresistance discovered by Peter Grünberg (awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2007) - a phenomenon based on a collective dynamic of electron spins.

  • 31.03.2020 Subnanometer measuring method of highest precision with ten decades measuring range

    "Three orders of magnitude create a new science" - this is how particle physicist Murray Gell-Mann, the discoverer of quarks, describes what awaits researchers on their journey into the world of the very smallest. And the world of the very smallest, for nanoscientists, is the realm of molecules and atoms. Their size is a fraction of a nanometer - the atomic lattice distance of car-bon is 0.246 nm. This corresponds to the 1/300 000 of a hair diameter. In the field of nanotech-nologies, it is preparing to produce semiconductor structures with almost atomic dimensions on wafers hundreds of millimeters in diameter. This naturally requires measuring instruments of the highest precision.

  • 31.01.2020 VideoLeB

    A strong heterogeneity of school students and inclusive learning settings place growing demands on the professional profile of teachers. In many teacher training courses, intensive preparation for these challenges is currently still a neglected activity. Rather, the principle of "learning by doing" seems to be common practice. As early as 2000, Mandl and Gerstenmaier pointed out a significant "gap between knowledge and action" in university education (Gerstenmaier & Mandl 2000, p. 1). In addition, Hof (2000) were able to show that teachers at the beginning of their careers tend to use intuitive knowledge and subjective theories as a basis for action rather than evidence-based and theoretically sound knowledge. However, the lack of practical relevance and the increased recourse to subjective theories and intuitive knowledge is counterproductive for preparing for today's everyday school li

  • 09.10.2019 Bessel prize-winner at the TU Ilmenau

    One of this year's winners of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation's prestigious Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel Research Award, Professor Lan Yang from Washington University in St. Louis, USA, will spend her associated stay abroad at the Technical University of Ilmenau starting in 2020.

  • 09.07.2019 Project »ZO.RRO« - Zero Carbon Cross Energy System

    After the first phase of the energy revolution with the establishment of renewable energies was completed and their expansion progressed worldwide, we have now entered the second phase. This phase not only includes the phasing out of fossil fuels in the power plant park, but above all the provision of flexibility in a system with cross-sector grid management, which is characterized by fluctuating power generation through wind and solar energy, i.e. the demand for energy must be adapted to the availability of the energy.

  • 14.05.2019 Hydrogen produced from sunlight: New record efficiency in direct solar water splitting

    In a sustainable energy system, hydrogen will play a central role as a storage medium and as fuel for maintaining mobility. An international team of researchers has succeeded in increasing the efficiency of direct solar water splitting, the first step of natural photosynthesis, to over 19% by combining a tandem solar cell from III-V semiconductors with rhodium nanoparticles and crystalline titanium dioxide [1]. Teams from the TU Ilmenau, the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems, the California Institute of Technology and the University of Cambridge participated in this research.[more]
